I know everyone’s probably SICK of reading posts about how their year went, and/or what they are expecting from this one. Although for me, I could read these types of posts again and again and again. Im nosy, I love feeling uplifted and I like someone to put me in a mood where I feel like I could kick someone or somethings butt! I still need to write my 2015 reflections post but I can’t get my thoughts down at the moment so for now, I’m looking to the future.
For me, the start of a New Year is the start of something new. Even though I may not know what 2016 has in store for me yet, the excitement and anticipation is very real. Right now I can’t quite see how 2016 will top last year but I can only hope, work hard and cross everything thats crossable. Whatever happens, I hope I’m smiling.
I can’t remember if I told you guys (I think I did) but I’m back at therapy. After months and months of of back and forth with doctors and different services, I am finally having weekly sessions. My therapist is bloody awesome and only after a few sessions, I feel like I am beginning to understand myself more. I won’t go into details right now about the issues I have been having because therapy is a really private thing for me and I take it very seriously. Im in quite a vulnerable place at the moment but when I feel ready, you know me – I’ll talk haha.
The Body Coach
Initially, this is something I didn’t plan on sharing but hey ho, maybe it will help or inspire some of you? I’ve gained a lot of weight over the past few months & for various different reasons. One of the reasons being, I literally can’t stop eating. Ive taken measures in terms of understanding why I binge eat and why my eating is so disordered but to understand food and what I should be eating, as well as exercises to make me feel good, I have signed up to The Body Coach. I’ve thought about doing this for about a year and a few weeks ago I took the plunge so that I could start January off the way I want to. Im actually more nervous than excited right now because of all the change thats going on around me but I’m positive this will help towards smashing 2016.
I know some of you are laughing right now or whispering ‘WTF’, so I’ll keep this one short lol. I’ve decided I want this year to be more focused on my personal life than my work life. I am 100% a workaholic and 2015 proved that but for 2016, I want to find myself a little more & I want to learn how to just ‘be’. Im not religious, but I’m incredibly spiritual and I want to tap into that side of me. Angel Healing claims to bring balance & harmony to ones life and boy, do I need it.
If I could travel the world I would and one day I hope I can. For now though, city breaks and a touch of paradise will do. At the moment I’ve booked Paris, Amsterdam & the Dominican Republic and I’m also off to Portugal with a brand. I am super excited to relax, explore and immerse myself in different cultures. I also hope to visit Barbados, Copenhagen & Barcelona. Travelling is so important to me and instead of buying those shoes, I’ll book that trip. (we both know i’ll do both right? haha)
Believe In My Ability
The blogging world has seriously changed and although I’ve made fantastic progress within it, I can’t help but feel slightly out of sort at times. Comparison is the root to all evil but I’m only human and sometimes I just can’t help myself. I don’t want to feel like I have to up my game every single week, but I do want to better my content, my writing and my consistency. I don’t agree that every blogger should have a Vogue style blog, a perfectly themed Instagram and Youtube videos edited by the editing Gods, (HOW IS THAT EVEN ACHIEVABLE??? DO YOU HAVE MORE HOURS IN YOUR DAYS – YOU MUST LOL). What I do agree with though is pushing yourself and believing in your abilities. I’m very good at is making others feel good about themselves so for this year I want to use that part of me more. I don’t need to be like her, or that girl, I just need to be myself.
