I had the best New Year’s Eve last night, and I’m not going to lie, I am very glad to see the back of 2014. Without sounding horrendously unoriginal, 2014 really has been a warm up for me. It was the year that I shook myself free of my anxiety disorder, the year I met Andy Jordan and The 1975, the year I resurrected my social life and spent time with those most important to me, and indeed the year that I started this blog. It equally, however, had it’s fair share of horrendous moments which I am so happy to put behind me and to now have the chance to wholeheartedly embrace 2015 as the year in which I’m going to start living.
Last night, my friends and I put together our list of resolutions, and also made resolutions for each other which was incredibly personal and touching, and it made me so happy to see how well my friends really do know me. I’m not going to share these resolutions here, aside from one which in my opinion is the most important one for me:
“To learn to love myself and my body, and embrace the person that I am rather than focusing too much on others.”
It is something that I have been guilty of not doing for far too long, and in turn it causes me so much unhappiness. Surely, something so toxic should be the one thing that needs changing the most!
On a brighter and happier note, I have plenty of goals for my blog over 2015 too, including a redesign, a renewed effort with my YouTube content (hello daily and weekly vlogs, regular tags and hauls and other such fun), a regular posting structure on here and also a slight change in content. Still desperately trying to find my voice, I feel like I want to include more lifestyle posts within this blog, as much as I enjoy styling and posting outfits I feel as though this online space of mine is lacking something and therefore isn’t making me 100% happy, which is something I want to rectify!
So, to all of you who have commented, followed and read my blog since its inception thank you from the bottom of my heart, and I do hope that you stick around for the next 12 months! <3
