Yeah I know 4 days late, oops but come on when am I ever fully organised?
Que the whole a new year a new me attitude, the sudden time where everyone wants to change. I must admit I am kind of jumping on the bandwagon and embracing the whole fresh start this year but equally I know it can be quite a daunting time. There is such a sudden push for everyone to set goals, start working out, eat healthy, achieve high academic grades and so on. I am all for making positive changes to ourselves but quite often during this time I feel such a pressure to change all these aspects. Instead of setting shitty goals, changing my mindset is something that I’m going to prioritising this year. Cliche new year resolutions may be beneficial for some but this year I’m binning them. Looking at the changes in my life during the past year makes me no longer want to set goals because quite frankly who knows where I’ll be in a years time. My whole life my change and things I desire now may be completely irrelevant to me a few months down the line.
2017 has been a incredible year for me, I’ve had such a journey with myself and I’m so happy with the changes I’ve made. This new year I want to continue changing my mindset and help increase my positivity.
I want 2018 to be the year of me. As sad as it is people come and go in your life and it’s only you that’s really ‘there’ all the time. I am all for caring for others and I think it’s so important to treat people well and always show kindness. Doing this is something we don’t tend to think twice about, but doing something for ourselves is often forgotten. 2017 has really been a journey of self love and I’m going to be pushing that even more this year. Confience is something I have really been big on and I am so happy to see changes in the way I now see myself. I know it’s only natural to criticise ourselves and pick apart everything we don’t like. Starting to follow every criticism with a positive has really helped me find parts of me that I do truly love and feel confident about.
Health is something I am going to push this year. However I won’t be doing this such as calorie/Macro counting or restricting my diet, because realistically this girl can’t get enough of her chocolate. I want to work out to feel strong and not too look good. Obviously being toned would be great we all know, but health is much more than your appearance. Focusing on health and fitness to me is going to be because I enjoy it and I want to see progress in my strength and fitness.
Finding my style is something I really want to delve into this year. I often struggle with new clothes as I’m a classic student unfortunately with an overdraft, but as the January sales are here I guess I have a slight excuse to splash out on a few (maybe too many) items. I’ve got so many pieces I want to try and I really want to explore what works for me.
Most importantly make sure this year you do things for you.
It’s been a while since I’ve really wrote a chatty post like this, and if I’m honest I’ve actually missed them. So I hope you’re prepared to see a lot more of these posts over the year.
Wishing you all the best for 2018,
