February Musings and Aims

This month has already started with a huge change in my life. It's still painful at the moment but I am sure in time I will be happier. It also signals the beginning of a new me, I know I am a month late for the whole new years resolution thing for me but is is the beginning of February that represents a major corner in my life. So here's what I am going to 

Live Life
I've not been overly happy the last few months and my Gap Year 50 has not progressed well. So this month I am going to tick some more things off.

Plan Life
I am getting on top of my life now. Now there is nothing holding me back from doing what ever I want to do. I have already applied for some jobs and have several options for what to do when I return from my travels. Super Excited. 

Get Excited
In just over a month I am jetting off for 2 months backpacking round Thailand and Australia. I cannot even explain how excited I am. We only have a few more small things to sort out (insurance :s) but I can almost taste paradise. 

All About Me
I haven't made a decision that makes ME happy in so long. I have been thinking about pleasing other people, and when I have chosen to do something for me, I have been made to feel guilty. Today this stops. For a while at least. No guilt, I am going to enjoy myself. It is so important to make yourself happy before thinking about others. 

Find Rosie
The last few months I sort of lost me, which is never a good thing. February is the month I locate, dust off and revert back to the crazy, weird and giggly Rosie I used to know.

What are you up to in February? 

p.s. Why does this month have to be so darn hard to spell?!

  1. Have a lovely time in Australia. I took a year out to travel over there and loved every minute of it.

  2. I was planning a few weeks in Thailand for February/March, but it might pan out to just be a week or two in Chiang Mai then a beach somewhere. Can't wait to read about your adventures

  3. Your backpacking fun sounds great fun - sounds like you need it to, it might help getting out of your normal environment to have that peace and time to refind yourself x

  4. This is exactly how I felt a few months ago! Finding oneself again is such a wonderful feeling even if it can be hard. You seem like you have a very wise head on your shoulders so it shouldn't be too hard :) Your travels sounds so exciting and adventurous!

  5. Sounds like you have a wonderful February and further months ahead planned! Very envious of your back packing. I'm coming into the last year of my PhD so my months are spent ticking off the very long list of things I have to do for that, although I am off to Sandiego in June :)

  6. I hear what you're saying - sometimes we need to stop and check with ourselves and get back on track. I think I'll join you in the get excited and all about me goals!

    Your trips sounds exciting!! I can't wait to hear the stories and see the pictures!
