[LIFE]: Catching Up With Cassidy January 2019

Let’s Catch Up

I really enjoyed writing my post at the beginning of January that listed some of my goals and intentions for 2019 and I had such a great response from you all. You can read it over here if you missed it. Some of you shared your own goals with me and some even felt inspired to have similar goals. So I wanted to carry on with posts similar to that and have a little catch up.

Coffee Sessions

My idea, after seeing how you related to my post, was to create a series that would feel like you are having coffee with a friend, just catching up. I then remembered that I had started the “Catching Up With Cassidy” series and had kind of abandoned it at the end of 2017. Oops. So, let’s do just that. Let’s catch up!

Working On My Goals

The first month of 2019 is over and I can honestly say that I’ve been sticking to majority of the goals. I’ve started painting again, I couldn’t even decide what to paint as I was so nervous after not painting for a while. I’m not even sure I like it at the moment haha.

Next goal I’ve been working hard at, is my gym routine. Instead of going overboard and then never wanting to return, I’m making an effort to go twice a week. I’m on week 5 now and I can feel a difference since I started week 1. It’s great motivation to stick with it and carry on with the routine.

I, unfortunately, haven’t been sticking to my reading goal. I am currently reading a book but I definitely need to dedicate more time to it. Hey, I’ve still got 11 more months left for 2019. But I do have book club next weekend so guess what I’ll be doing this weekend.

Time To Open Up

Part of this series is that I also want to open up a bit more. I take a really long time to open up to anyone, I’ve built quite a few walls around myself. And something I haven’t spoken about a lot on my blog is my anxiety. I have a few ways of trying to manage it but lately my anxiety has been really high. I think the fact that I moved into my own place (I’m a real home body and very close to my family) and that my brother moved down to the coast for his internship has been a big change for me. I miss hanging out with my brother terribly.

I’ve recently come to the realization, with a bit of outside help, that while I am OK with change, it needs to happen slowly. I like my routines. I like things to be in my control. So, in order to help my anxiety, I need to start creating more routines for myself. So I think starting with a gym routine twice a week is a good, and healthy way to start.

Home Post Coming Soon

I’ve had quite a few requests to do some home posts and I’d love to do one for you guys soon. I can show you a bit of the decor look I love; how I reuse in my everyday life and how I upcycled some of my furniture. Let me know if there is anything specific you’d like to see?

I Want To Catch Up With You

I’d love to hear from you guys! How are your goals going for 2019? Reading anything interesting lately? I know there are so many out there that suffer from anxiety, what do you do to help manage it? I’m here if you just want to chat xXx

    Hey Cas, nice post πŸ‘Œ There are a few apps out there to help with anxiety. Headspace is a cool one. It guides you through meditation and it teaches you to let go of those thoughts helping to increase your anxiety level. It starts off with a 10 set series of about 5 minutes each so there is time to fit it in too (even if it’s bed time) πŸ˜‰πŸ€— xx

    Haven’t had a chance to catch up on some of my fave blogs for a good few months, so what a surprise to pop in here and see your beautiful new look! Loved reading this post, and so excited for you now that you’re in your own home! I remember when I first moved out of my parents’ house – I felt incredibly lonely at time, but you’ll see that you’ll soon get into your own groove (making things pretty always helps! Looking forward to those home posts!) Sending lots of love – you are looking gorgeous! x
