May Goals

18 May 2020|

This is BANANAS.

Last month, I thought that setting goals was a little pointless but actually, the realisation is that it doesn’t matter where we are, we can still set and achieve goals. Goals don’t have to big, bold or life changing – little by little, it all adds up.

So, May is for baby steps (halfway through anyway!)

April Goals

  1. These are some great goals! I have seriously been slacking in monthly goals my brain has given up on everthing. I find it so hard to focus these days.

    1. I hear you my friend, and this is so normal! We also need to allow ourselves this space where all we do is SURVIVE!! Sending you so much love x
