This week I’ve been doing a lot of reflecting. It all started out with having to reflect on a weekly basis for one of my university modules, noting down progress on my ‘learning journey’ with International Criminal Law. Initially, I thought that this was just a silly form of assessment for a module, however, I’ve had a change of heart. This type of weekly journalling has made me reflect on far more than just international criminal law, making me think about different areas of my life and things that I would like to change. Without getting too personal, I thought I’d share some of those with you. Maybe it will inspire you to do the same?
I am a strong believer in the law of attraction. I’ve read ‘The Secret’ and while I don’t agree with everything, I agree with Rhonda Byrne’s underlying message: the thoughts you put out into the universe manifest into reality. I’ve tested out this theory in the past year and it truly works. At the start of the year/month/week (whatever suits you), write down what you want to achieve. I write down big goals of mine on a piece of paper and I place it somewhere that I’ll see daily. Having that constant reminder motivates me to work on actually achieving those goals. That’s the thing – I don’t think it’s as easy as simply thinking of what you’d like to achieve, you have to WORK towards that goal. At least a little. It’s only when I look back at goals I’ve set for myself in the past that I have realised that I have come a long way and managed to accomplish them.
Without further ado, here are some of my February intentions for 2019. I’ve always loved following Lee Tilghman’s intentions through her stories on Instagram (@leefromamerica) and this is my version. It’s not a complete list by any means, just something I want to have made significant progress on by March.
I take my friendships very seriously. I can’t begin to count the
I mentioned this in my last post but I’ve been itching to get on the next flight abroad. I’ve booked a trip to Luxembourg which is coming up soon and, honestly, I am just so excited to be able to see my family again. Especially, my dog. I cannot wait to give Richy the biggest cuddle ever! He turned 12 years old a few days ago which is absolutely crazy. I feel like it was yesterday that he was a small puppy on his way to our house from the breeder. C
Oof, this was a big one in January. I knew this year would be stressful on the job front being in
Law Ball 2019
Boy, oh, boy. Organising Law Ball 2019 is the bane of my existence. The endless stress, last minute changes or cancellations, the drama… If only you knew. Nevertheless, I would not change my experience for the world. I have learned so much from this experience and it has truly put my skills to the test. I am so happy that I get to work with such an amazing team of people and I cannot wait for 23rd of February to roll around the corner. I know it’s going to be a stressful night but it will also be so rewarding. Having planned numerous events of a large scale, I know that there will always be something that happens which is unexpected. You know how the saying goes… expect the unexpected. That’s what I’m trying to channel for Law Ball 2019. My intention for Law Ball is to not let my perfectionism take over and simply do the best that I can without ruining my own mood. Gosh, that sounds cynical, doesn’t it? No, scratch that. My intention for Law Ball 2019 is to showcase the incredible work of my team and actually enjoy the night with my closest friends and peers. THAT’S my intention.
I know this was a somewhat different post from me but I love it when I can connect with you on a more personal level. It genuinely still surprises me how many of you tell me that you keep up with my blog posts and give me your feedback or thoughts! It warms my heart. I would LOVE to hear what your February intentions for 2019 are. Let’s achieve our goals together!!!
What do you hope to achieve in February 2019?
