I can’t quite believe that it’s January whaaaat! I mean where has the time gone- I swear it was September just last week. Since I started college the semester just flew by and before I knew it I was on christmas break and now suddenly that’s over too. Now that it’s the new year I’m back on the blogging train and ready to share some of my most random and deepest thoughts
Here are just some pics which remind me of the good times in 2015.
I’ve thought a lot about the last year, what happened and how I’ve changed. I’ll be honest this has not been the best year and I’m actually looking forward to the fresh start 2016 brings.
I was tested in 2015, my strength was tested and although it was tough I can honestly say that I am better off for it.(Quick disclaimer I know I sound dramatic here- nothing crazy serious happened just life in general). I realised that I had to make some changes and take a look at my life; the people that were in it and my character. I’m not proud of all my behaviour, not just this year but in the last few years and I would like to change a couple of things. However, I don’t have too many regrets because I accept that what happened happened for a reason. I also had to decide who was best for me in my life and that was one of the hardest things to do.
I think I’ve grown up a lot this year. I have more respect for people and the life that I have. I’ve learned that I have to work hard for what I want because things don’t always just fall into place. I’ve also seen first hand what it’s like to make some sacrifices for the people who mean the most to you.
I’m so proud of my parents. In my growing up more this year I’ve realised more of what they do everyday and how much they have to deal with. They’re so strong, I don;t know how they do it but I suppose it’s like that for a lot of us-we never get how our parents do all that they do. They’ve been so supportive and I can honestly say that I wouldn’t have been able to get through this year without them. They pushed me to be better, to dream and to never believe that I can’t do something.
I hope that I can take what I learnt in 2015 and make 2016 a better year. I haven’t got much plans yet for the next 12 months but I do want to do something special each month. I feel positive at the beginning of this year something I didn’t have last. I want to enjoy myself, I mean I’m 18 and in college, life is good at the moment and I’ll never be where I am now again so I want to soak it up, get involved in different clubs and meet as many new people as I can!
To finish I have three new years resolutions
- To push myself outside of my comfort zone
- To stop putting myself down so much and laugh at my awkward moments rather than punish myself for them
- To let loose more and enjoy the moments, and not to worry so much about regrets or the future.
Obviously if at the end of the year I had been to the gym regularly and got fit that would be nice too but I’m not going to call fitness a resolution because chances are I won’t achieve that one 😀
Happy New Year and all I wish for you this year is that you learn to be happy in your self because that is one of the most important things! And to all my peeps studying for their upcoming mock exams ‘stay strong sweeties!’ it’s only the practice round. Study hard but take time out to relax and make sure ye are still getting a good nights sleep and laughing.THEIR IS LIFE AFTER THE LEAVING CERT contrary to popular belief- you’ll make it!
Bye for now 🙂
2016 please be good to me! 🙂
