So this is the first of the personal reflections for 2018. I thought I’d offer up little bits about myself and things I’ve been thinking about this month.
This month was one of the hardest for me in a while. It’d be lame to say of 2018 right? Not only was I really sick, but everyone in my family was really sick. Healthwise for us, it was a bad month. This brought in additional stress and I wasn’t able to make the most of my time. I fell down on a lot of goals – like keeping track of my habits, my monthly memories, and even just my personal reading journal. Not only that, but career wise I felt like I was at a crossroads. Where I set myself an ultimatum which would have had lasting consequences on my future.
But in other news, I also got a six month job. So that was a lovely surprise – and also what the ultimatum was regarding. But with all large changes, it brought stress in a different way. And while it brought some closure, it also asked me new questions.
- What is the purpose of a book? Does it have to teach you something? What should a book show you? A new perspective?
- Do I want to keep setting myself a reading schedule?
I got back into Bookstagram, not taking photos (I’ve been doing that all along), but posting them. So make sure to check them out if you aren’t already.
