I know it’s so cliche, but I absolutely love this time of the year when I feel like I could do with a fresh new start. I love that any bad vibes or bad energy can be left in the year before and you can start fresh and set goals for the brand new year, a bit like the feeling you get when you start a brand new page in a writing or drawing book (or maybe that’s just me!?).
Looking back on 2016 I realised it really wasn’t a bad year at all. I started up my own blog, I moved into a much nicer and cheaper flat, I grew more confident ready for job interviews, I finally stopped putting up with people’s bullshit and I bought a brand new car. I realised I started doing things for me, to help me and I’m definitely going to be carrying that on in the new year. This year will be about looking after number one.
My plan this year (which I say EVERY year without fail) is to loose weight. My best friend is getting married abroad in the summer and I’m going to be a bridesmaid for the first time. I am so self conscious of my body and I really want to look good in my pretty bridesmaid dress, so I have to stay focused a shift a few pounds ready for the big day.
Not only that, I can be very unhealthy which sometimes makes me feel crappy about myself and isn’t good for my skin. I always end up breaking out and regretting eating so much sugar! So I’m definitely going to work on looking after my insides as well as my outsides this year. I also think loosing weight will help even more with my confidence, which will always need improving, so I’m definitely looking forward to eating healthier this year.
My other big plan is to carry on doing what I want to do. I’ve spent so many years worrying about what other people think of me or what people will say to me because I’ve not done something they want to do, but those years are now officially over. I only ever want to do what I want to do and I feel i’m a much happier person since having that attitude.
Other than that I just want to start having much more fun, sometimes I can get stressed out way too easily over something that is so bloody small! So I want to stop all that silly nonsense and have a very happy year. I have so much to look forward to and so much I would like to do, I KNOW this year is going to be great.
