Hello 2017! Goals & Resolutions

Welcome to 2017! This post is late because it is the 6th of January, but I wanted to do a post about this year, my goals, resolutions and just a general chit chat. I didn't want to rush into this post, I wanted a lot of thought going into it, but anyways hope you all had a lovely Christmas break and New Year!

This new year I have definitely change my attitude into the respects of the whole "New year, new year" I have realised that this is the total opposite thought process that I want to go into 2017 with.

For 2017 the thing that I want to focus on more this year is myself, this might sound very selfish but I feel as if I want to take care of myself more, physically and mentally! This is the year for change, acceptance and growth! 

I have a lot of exciting things taking place this year, so I have said it already multiple times that 2017 is going to be my year! I will be documenting a lot of the exciting adventures happening, such as a holiday and the main on being university!

The reason why I have really struggled this year to come up with resolutions is mainly the lack of motivation I have. This is the only year where I have not known from the get go what my goals and resolutions are, so these are some general things I would love to work on, but I am not going to beat myself up about if I let them slide occasionally. 

My goals and resolutions:

I would love to be able to not give a f**k. Sometimes I can really worry and let things bother me, I have always been like this but looking back over situations I want to feel relaxed and easy when it comes to what people think of me etc. I have definitely improved on this from looking back to 2 years ago but is something I want to continue working on.

I want to work on my trust issues and feel comfortable letting people in. From bad experiences, I have definitely kept my feelings under wraps and now have trouble in opening up and trusting people from this. I have more trust issues in guys, just because they are some of the people that have given me this difficult in trusting others. With this I also want to be ok with being single, I want to go out more and have fun.

I want to be more honest, I don't mean this in the respects that I lie because I don't. I want to be more honest with myself and others about how I feel and thoughts because a lot of this time can stop me from opening up to others, so this can go hand in hand with my trust issues.

I want to say yes more, this could be wether I want to go out one night and to just socialise with more people. Now I am 18 this is a lot easier, a few people ask if I want to go out and I make up some excuse, but that's going to change from this year onwards!

Something I say every year is that I want to work out more, but this year I am contemplating joining a gym, I have a holiday coming up in June with the girls and I want to be comfortable in whatever I am wearing. But putting that aside, I want to feel more body confident on a day to day basis, and I think working out will also help me mentally as a de-stress mechanism.

This year I feel as if it's a big "life changing" year for me, so I want to document this a lot more and take more photos and videos! This way I can look back on this at the end of the year, or in years to come!

One that I am taking and sticking to very lighting is, the fact that I would like to get a tattoo! I have always wanted at least a tatoo, and now I am 18 I can! I have a few ideas of ones I potentially like, but it's having the courage to say yes, and go ahead with it!

Of course, my ultimate goal of this year is to go to university! I will have a university application experience post coming soon, I am just waiting to hear back from one more university, as soon as I do that post will be going up. I am always having a burst of excitement every time I think of university, and being able to meet new people, and have more responsibilities while living somewhere totally different.

Hope you all have a wonderful 2017! Let's make this a better year.
