I hope you had a wonderful Christmas! I thought I would sum up this year with a reflective post. I believe this is such a good time for us to reflect on where we are now and where we want to be.
2019 has definitely been a rollercoaster; I’ve probably learnt more about myself in the past year than I ever have. It made me re-assess some major situations in my life at this moment. Let’s start on the challenges and end on some positives from this year:
-Second year was horrific. The dealings of a new house off campus and the increase in work load meant I came home every weekend just to feel a little more relaxed
-Along with uni, this was severely affected as well as placement
– (Not the TV show!) Sometimes a refresh is needed so you can assess who your loyal friends are. your true ones will make themselves known
-I’m still getting used to the work/life balance and adjustment. I’m getting there!
-Nothing major, but it was a chilled day out in London, checking out the Shard
Passing my 2nd year of uni
-Despite the challenge, I was super proud to achieve a first, but it wasn’t without tears!
-One of the proudest moments of my life so far and something I’ve always wanted to do. I will definitely do it again at some point but higher! Maybe in America this year… (more in next week’s post!)
Library and reading
-The local library has been so refreshing and provides an element of stepping back in time (call me old school). I can’t believe I forgot about the FREE access to a myriad of works. Helps the environment, your mind and your wallet
– I love to buy second hand and budget, as well as sell things I no longer use. It’s a way of considering our environment and also helps to save a few £££
-My mental health has improved so much and has helped to alleviate some stress. I never regret a workout.
-The Game Changers – oh heck, just watch it.
My friends and family
-Just being there to pick me up when I’ve been down (a lot!), listen and support me
-I couldn’t not include my blog! I’ve enjoyed having somewhere to test my creativity (and confidence), as well as have something to hold me accountable and be consistent. Let’s hope this continues…
Overall I’m happy with how this year has gone; I don’t regret a thing as I have learned a hell of a lot about myself – and the world for that matter! I told myself on my 21st I wanted it to be a good year and so far, it has challenged me, but only for the better: I look forward to what next year has to offer!
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
