At a time of year where everyone is setting themselves unrealistic new years resolutions, I thought we should all be reminded to take a moment to reflect. I never set resolutions, I find them pretty pointless, however, I do set myself some goals to achieve.

Don’t Wait for the “Right” Moment

I am a firm believer that if you want to make a change, the only thing stopping you is yourself.

Life waits for no one, there is never going to be a perfect time to do something. There will always be distractions and perhaps a negative voice inside your head.

The time is now, if you want something, you have to be prepared to do what it takes to make it happen. I believe we are all capable of whatever we set our minds to. The power of the mind is absolutely incredible, so start believing in yourself!

New Year, Same Me

Personally, I think the most annoying phrase at this time of year is “new year, new me”. You are always going to be the same person, but of course you can change your thought processes and make physical changes to your appearance if you desire.

Something which I think needs to be more appreciated is the person you are RIGHT NOW. You are amazing, you always have been.

Stop wishing for so much change and start sending love to the you that is already here.

I say it every year, I am not going to change in the new year and that is still true for 2019. I honestly feel so happy with where I am in my life right now and have learnt to love myself and I want you to do the same.

Set Goals and Stop the Excuses

Rather than making a somewhat unrealistic list of new years resolutions, use this time to reflect. Look back at how much you have achieved in this past year, it is probably a lot more than you think.

We have heard them all “I am going to eat healthier, I am going to go the gym”… Why are they always so body centred?

The goals I set are relevant to my life situation. For instance, at the beginning of 2018 I made a list of things I wished to achieve that year, including getting a 2:1 in my second year of university and getting a work placement. These were achievable and I began my year with the intention of doing them, therefore, they both came into fruition.

I believe in 2019 we could all do with a bit more happiness and a bit less worry…

  • Take no bullshit
  • Listen to your intuition
  • Have a hell load of fun!

I wish you all the best for the year ahead and life beyond.
