September in Review
I love October. While time is flying, I am so happy to be in this month.
Looking back at this month is...difficult...again.
If you are a consistent reader of my blogger, you know by now that I planned to set mini-goals and mantras for each month that will all build up to my larger 2017 goals. In August, I didn't come close to hitting a single one of my goals...and I kind of followed suit in September. I still struggled through a breakup, my anxiety is pretty constant, I grappled with some friend issues and I had a rough time at work.
However, while I didn't hit any of my goals, my monthly mantra - fight - came in use more than ever. I fought the urge to give into my anxiety, I fought my desperation and desire to get the hell out of San Diego, I fought against heavy negative self-talk and I fought for my work. This month, I could have easily laid down and let everything else take over and wallowed...but, instead, I fought.
Here are a few other highlights from September:
I visited Nashville. Read more about it in a Tuesday Ten!
I went to the Marine Corps Ball. I went with a friend and had so much fun feeling fancy all dressed up!
I modeled for the Port of San Diego. I got to paddle board, kayak and wine and dine...all for a commercial. Yet again...yes, please!
I hiked up one of the highest points in San Diego County. I closed out September with an epic 12-mile hike up El Cajon Mountain. It was the perfect solo adventure.
This month, I will be focusing on: Look - don't just see.
