April 2017 | Best month yet!

This is a transparent monthly reflection where I take the time to look back, view my progress and make adjustments.

Monthly Project: Write. I had this fabulous story idea come to me during this month, and I pretty much dropped everything that wasn't essential to write through it.
Health → Exercise 3 days/week, drink 65oz. water/day Exercise: 12/12 (100%)

Notes: Yoga is crazy fun. Okay? Okay.
Water: 15/30 (50%)
Notes: I wasn't very good at keeping track this month (ehe) so this is just a guess. But definitely near the end of this month I began to crack down on my water consumption.

For all the time I spend stressing about where I am compared to where I want to be, I can still force myself to step back and not take everything so seriously. Autopilot and the buzz of routine switch off to the point where it's just me and the wild flowers. The bees and the breeze. Planet Earth beneath my feet. Fresh air in my lungs.

Breathe with me.

Slow down. Let's not grow up so fast.
