How My Week Went:

Still working remotely, still self-isolating except for my mom who lives with me–those things have been hard. But I’m grateful for the friends I have been able to keep in touch with virtually and the friends I only know virtually.

I started a month-long challenge on Instagram for bookstagrammers and it’s been interesting to stretch myself there and also a good exercise in perspective and appreciating how far I’ve come, in all areas, and how much I’ve achieved.

This is the time of year where I usually set what I call “personal development” goals. These run on a fiscal year schedule so I set them every summer and previous ones have included things like trying to make new friends at work and be brave and step out of my comfort zone. Sometimes they’re really hard to do but I never regret them. I hadn’t been sure what to set for a goal this year since, for the foreseeable future anyway, my world is pretty small.

But after doing this challenge and thinking about goals I want to set for my Instagram, I feel like having fun this year and remembering to appreciate the progress I’ve made aren’t bad as far as personal development goals go.
