After a hard ending to 2017, I had high expectations for 2018 to bring me the best times, it delivered! Providing me with memories and friendships I’ll cherish for a lifetime and I can’t wait to see grow, despite this it did come with it’s typical highs and lows but I’ll be doing a 2018 Round Up post soon, collecting all of these so that in years to come I can look back and remember what an awesome year 2018 was, and here we go… 2019, Bring it on!
I have always been one of those people who write a million and one resolutions or bucket list ideas for a year and end up ticking about 5 off throughout the year, this year I’m going to try to be different. Instead of writing pages on pages of things I want to achieve and places I want to go, I’ll just jot a few down and I feel I’ll be more likely to tick all of them off when we get to this time next year.
One place I wish to visit in 2019 (and preferably at Christmas time) is Edinburgh. It’s so close, unlike places like Australia yet I still, after having this place on my bucket list for numerous years now, haven’t got round to booking a trip there. At Christmas time, the market is out, the lights are on, the feeling is festive and it all just seems so happy. I will (and can’t wait) to go to Edinburgh in 2019.
One thing I’d like to do for myself is to actually get back into the gym a bit more, this tends to be a common one for a lot of people especially when we enter January, although I did partake in my first gym class last week, completely on my own in a room full of strangers, all of us dripping with sweat by the end of it, and I loved it! Haha! So I am going to be aiming for once a week (minimum) but hopefully 2-3 times a week (and I’m counting a gym class as one of those 2/3 times as I sweated as much, if not more than I would in a normal gym session anyway).
My last one, is be more accepting of help. Being the stubborn young woman I am, I go through phases where I think I’m superwoman and can do it all on my own, scared that asking for help is giving in to weakness. This is not the case, we all need that extra helping hand from time to time and a shoulder to cry on once in a blue moon, but I’m always that hand or shoulder not just for everyone else, but for myself. It’s time to start opening up and accepting help, regardless of whether I feel I need it.
If you want to have a sneaky look at my resolutions I set for 2018 here’s my post: 2018 Resolutions…? I can actually say with a lot of certainty, I feel I did achieve the majority of those resolutions, despite some of them being an on-going goal of mine.
Before I end this post, just for myself I’m going to in put a photo from 2016, 2017, 2018 and one of my most recent photos, I just wanted to document the change I’ve been through this year and how these past few years have been a giant roller-coaster and a tunnel of darkness and recently I’ve managed to step off the ride and out of the tunnel.
I personally, am proud. And I don’t say that a lot of myself. I am proud!
What are your 2019 resolutions? Where do you want to go? What do you want to achieve?
Thank you, as always, for reading! I wish you all the best for 2019 and can’t wait to see everyone achieving their goals.
