What lessons have you learnt this year? Yep, that’s another year that’s nearly over and done with again. I used to think I couldn’t quite believe it but then there comes a time when you realise how fast time can go. And you learn that time is so precious. One of my biggest goals for 2017 was a personal one – to worry less. Sounds much simpler written down, doesn’t it? I’d be lying if I said that I had fully achieved this. However, one thing is for sure, I’ve done my best to maintain a balance of positive thinking.
What I aimed for in 2017
Remember I told you that I wanted to get more active this year, as well as thinking a lot more positive? For the first part I really surprised myself. I didn’t become a fitness maniac but I conquered my gym fears and did all of the things I felt comfortable doing in order to increase my exercise activity. This hasn’t been everyday and this month it hasn’t even been at all. But I certainly do feel better once I partake in exercise. It boosts your mood and makes you feel stronger and fitter at the same time.
Taking a different perspective
As for the worry side. That’s always been a big part of me, it’s always been in my nature to worry. However, I started to learn to handle things differently. It was time to stop worrying about others so much and start to realise the impact it has on me. Especially a young woman with migraines and high blood pressure (which I’m hoping will go away in the new year).
Sometimes, I actually wonder why I’ve made myself so crazy. It’s mad. Running round in circles thinking what if, this or that… absolutely pointless. You only end up putting yourself on a downer when actually, you should be nothing but happy to move towards the future and live your life. Just the other night I was out with my two friends for Boxing Day. Truth be told we all got very merry and had a great night, especially me! I woke up thinking, oh no, me again. But then I thought, you know what when you’re out with friends, these things don’t matter. Another little thing I stopped myself from looming over.
Happiness is the most important thing
We just need to get a move on now and hope that more of our dreams start to come true in 2018. I’m sure I’ll share any new experiences that we face with you all. We really hoped to have moved out but that’s now of the things we know will be worth the wait. We’ll keep on saving and it will eventually happen. I do believe that.
Have you accomplished anything new this year?
