Monthly Achievements | June 2014

Hola Sparkly1s

I feel like each time I'm gonna write one of these Monthly Achievement posts I'll look back and think 'wow this months gone fast.'  It's so nice just to spend a few moments looking back on the past few weeks of my life and I would encourage you all to try and do it.  It really makes me value the little things I'm achieved along the way.

Continuing my healthy eating.  If you read my Fitness Fridays you'll know I've experienced some wobbles this month.  I've really had to try hard and be determined not to slip back into unhealthy eating habits and so far I'm achieving it.  I'm making conscious decisions not to reach for that bag of crisps and grab a few nuts or a piece of fruit instead.   

Growing my nails.  Check these beauties out!  They're almost how I want them.  I've talked about my nail polish obsession before and how I don't paint my nails.  This month I've made a real effort with my nails and I've managed to grow them.  I bought some Essie Grow Stronger Base Coat from Boots and I really think it's helped.

(This sounds like a real shallow achievement. But I'm pleased with myself so I've added it anyway!)

Writing 27 blogposts.  This is only my second month blogging and I'm really pleased with myself with what I've achieved.  I'm definitely finding my feet and am so pleased I decided to start this little blog.  It's wonderful to have this creative outlet.

Keeping my mouth shut and avoiding an argument.  If you ever get to know me well enough you will find out I'm quite an opinionated thing.  Recently I was browsing Pinterest and came across this little beauty.   

I feel like ever since then it's kinda stayed with me.  It's so true.  I've been in a few situations since where I've thought, 'You're just looking for an argument.'  You know, those occasions when someone just seems to be saying anything they can to disagree with you or get a rise outta you?   The old me would have taken them up on the offer.  (Like I said, I'm opinionated.)  The new me takes a second to think about it.  Am I really that bothered?  Is it worth the argument?  9 times outta 10 it isn't.  So I just don't take them on and walk away.
Have you done anything this month you're really proud of?  However big or small. I'd love to hear about it. 
Take a moment now to think of one thing you've achieved this month and give yourself a pat on the back.
