I’m not gunna start preaching about how amazing 2018 will be, because nothing is guaranteed in this life, however, it will be a year of significant change for me.
I intend on using what I learnt about myself and this world last year to help impact and better this year for me!
I learnt over the last year, that exercise is an amazing stress relief for me, and I’m not going to lie, I really liked the effect it had on my body and my mind and my skin. It was so beneficial, so I am going to attempt to start going to the gym three times a week again, if I could do it whilst fulltime at sixth-form, I can do it when I’m only in lectures for like.. 11 hours a week! WHY? because it works for me!
I also learnt that my faith carried and still does carry me through things that I wouldn’t be able to do alone, I feel as though I haven’t shown God how grateful I am for some of the things He has done and is doing for me recently, so it is a huge goal to bring my faith back up to where it was last year. To rejuvenate it and really lean on God in all that I do.
I’m going to continue to try and always be as positive about things as I can, because positivity is KEY!!! Finding the good in certain bad situations is good for helping us to complete certain life hurdles and preventing them from causing us to stumble. Attempting to keep a positive mind set, is also a plus for someone like me who has a tendency to struggle with mental health issues. Where the positive mind and ability to recognise when I am deteriorating are good for my mental health in the long run.
I’m not gunna lie, in terms of materialism, but at the same time experience, holidays! I really hope to go on a couple of holidays this year, and really get out there in the world and see somethings! I want to gain as many unique experiences as possible! I just wanna try loads of new things out, maybe even find a new hobby!
I started my first ever job as well! I started on Wednesday, unfortunately came down with a case of tonsillitis, so could only go in for one of the two days I was meant to work, however, I am better now and ready to continue on my journey into adult life! I nanny for a family near my university on my days off, it is honestly such a rewarding job to do and I’m so happy I’ve picked it!
At the end of last year, I got a message from my biological father, who I haven’t had contact with since I was 2/3! Initially I must say it was a huge shock and I didn’t really know how to take it for obvious reasons. I am still building up the courage to think of a response and reply, because I know I want to, but I know I need to take it as I can handle it and at my own pace. I’m very grateful to have finally gotten some contact, and hope that this year can bring some more contact and reconciliation in that area of life 🙂
This year is also the year that my uni friends and I move will move into our FIRST ever house, and I think being a step into the adult life, it will truly help me to develop more into the woman I become. Living more independently, with no senior resident down the hall way. Being able to make myself breakfast/lunch and dinner whenever I like, instead of having to go to the refectory at a certain time for the meals. INDEPENDENCE, is something I’m really looking forward to.
I think I also just, really want to start finding new ways to be more confident in who I am and what I stand for, and hat blogging is an amazing platform for me to be able to make a start on doing this!
THE GYM. Getting active. Good grades . Sorting my life out! HAPPINESS! AND MORE are all things that I can’t wait to accomplish and grow from this year!
I live such a cliché life!
