I’ve been neglecting this little space for a while. That’s not to say that I haven’t been doing anything interesting with my life, I’ve just not felt like writing. I have actually been having fun, taking as many photos as I normally would and trying out new restaurants, but I’ve just not been compelled to write about any of it, which makes me sad.
I’ve spent so much time maxin’ & relaxin’ this Christmas, it’s been amazing, but I’ve had a lot of time to think *how deep*. My main thoughts, why have I fallen out of love with all of this?
So I did what any ridiculously over organised, over thinking, girl would do. I started making lists. I do love a good list. I wrote lists about things that inspire me, things I love, places I want to go, things I want to do and goals I have for 2018.
I came to the realisation that I think I stopped writing because I wasn’t sure if anyone actually cared about this, my little online space & I guess I became a bit embarrassed about it all. This is when my new and improved 2018 brain kicked in..
Why did I care about that?
New Years Resolution Numero 1 – Care less about what other people think of me (I struggle with this a lot). People can be cruel and judgemental, especially online, but their opinions are more a reflection of them than rather you, so just remember that.
It doesn’t help that I’m a bit of an over thinker. I’ll meet every situation with a million questions. It’s a curse. But something I’ve heard a lot this year, just do you. Very good, profound advice, so it’s time to put it into practice.
(Also 9 times out of 10 people probably don’t care what you’re doing because they’re more concerned with what they, themselves, are doing – there’s a lot of caring/not caring going on).
Anyway, so whilst I’m over here doing more ‘me’ I’m going to be doing things that I love.
So what do I love? Well I love travel, health, fitness, fashion, beauty..the list goes on..but I am by no means an expert in any of these fields. That’s when I start to talk negatively to myself and think why bother writing about them when there are certainly people more qualified to do that? Well no more! They’re my passions and I love them so I will write about them. It might be super cringe or it might be super cool, I guess we’ll just have to see.
Enjoying my little pep talk?
I hope so, now go and find what you’re passionate about and DO IT.
My other New Years Resolutions:
2 – Travel more. I want to visit every corner of the World, so this year I want to try and visit at least one new place a month, whether it be an exotic, far away land or somewhere a little bit closer to home (I’m sure England has some hidden gems). Just make sure I keep on exploring. (I’m going to have to recruit some willing friends to keep me company, so hit me up if you fancy some adventures).
3 – Work related. Graduate. Eeek.
I guess this post has been brought on by the #CrimboLimbo haze which we’re all living in (thank you Nationwide for that advert, I really appreciate it). I currently have no idea what day it is and I switch between being in either a food induced or alcohol induced coma (sometimes it’s both). I am a sloth. But if you haven’t binge watched crappy TV and had a cheese board for dinner, was it really Christmas? I think not.
So Merry Christmas. I hope you all had a wonderful time celebrating!!
Now what are your New Years resolutions?
