Happy new year everybody! I'm a bit late to the 'reflecting on 2014' party, but that's ok. 2014 had some good moments but i'm definitely looking forward to a new year.
I haven't posted for quite a long time, as, like most people, Christmas has been insanely busy for me! I work in an industry that thrives on the Christmas period, but unfortunately for me it's meant long, tiring days and a lack of sleep, so i'm just in the process of recharging my batteries! I did however, have an amazing Christmas with all all of my family and friends, although i've definitely got a few pounds to shed now!
I thought I'd quickly share with you some of the things I would like to achieve in 2015, as although I don't strictly believe in 'resolutions', I do like having something to aim for. So first and foremost....
1.Build my blog
Back in September, I created this blog as it's something i've wanted to do as a means of expressing myself for years! I have loved reading blogs for so long and I'm so happy I finally pushed myself to create one! Although the physical creation of 'Jembubble' is done, this year I really want to make my blog my own. I want this space to be a real reflection of my personality, and for people to enjoy reading it. I would also love to go to a blogger meetup at some point.
2. Get healthy
I must have vowed to 'lose weight' at least three years in a row, so this year i'm not going to tell myself there has to be a certain number on the scales or in the tags of my clothes. I don't eat regularly, and the things I eat aren't great for me. I don't excercise enough and my sleeping pattern is terrible. The list could go on. This year, I want to feel healthy physically, mentally and emotionally. I want to eat healthily but give myself 'days off'. I want to exercise regular, but not punish myself for eating a choccie bar! It's all about moderation.
3. Have a positive mental attitude
More often than not, I tend to see the negative side to things rather than the positive. This is partly due to my anxiety, however I've noticed that people who are generally positive always tend to come across and happier people. I want to try to see more 'good in the bad', and 'silver linings' of things, as I think this will help me to be a better person in general!
4. Stop worrying so much!
I'm also a massive worrier, which also can spoil good and happy times for no actual reason! Again, this isn't helped by my anxiety but I do tend to over-think things and therefore spend a lot more time worrying than I should. This year i'm going to try and 'chill out' a bit more!
5. Be more organised
I am a clutter brain. I rely solely on my memory (sometimes my phone) to remember important events and times, which ends in me sometimes forgetting what the heck i'm doing. As pictured above, I have been and bought some very pretty notepads and organisers to help aid me in becoming more organised! I'm quite sure this will help me with my other resolutions too! (I mean, have you ever seen an organised person worry about what time their dental appointment is? Nope!)
6. Be happy, and spend more time with loved ones
I want to make sure that I'm happy with the choices I make this year, as I can be a very easily persuaded person, yet the choices I make don't always make me happy. This is usually with the most simplest things. Alongside that, I also want to spend more time with my family and friends, especially those who I don't see that much, as they always put a smile on my face!
What are your goals for 2015?
