Hello everyone! HAPPY NEW YEAR!
I'm actually very excited for 2015 for once. My annoyingly superstitious side is telling me not to lock on to that or anything but I've got plans i'm looking forward.
2015 will hopefully be the year of - finishing GCSE'S, having a wicked summer, going to a new sixth form to study drama btec, doing a pilates course and hopefully getting a job at lush because it is my SWEET SIXTEEEEEEEEEEN at the end of January.
I think resolutions and wonderful and marvellous and truly important - yes, they can produce guilt if broken but they give us a nudge in the right direction to get motivated for the new year. We can make resolutions whenever we want; at the beginning of a month, on a Monday, in the middle of the year - but I just think the best time to get going is now, with the support of everyone we love around us. Right, I'm babbling - here are my resolutions:
1. Work hard for my dreams and goals. Yes, I have to work hard for things I care less for when I do my GCSE's, but this year I want to truly focus on my ultimate goals - becoming an actress and a pilates instructor. I'm not saying by the end of this year I'll be a successful actress in a BBC period drama or a super fit and advanced instructor, but hopefully I'll be getting somewhere.
2. Always be kind. Sometimes when we find ourselves in dark places (metaphorically dark; I'm not just talking about sitting in your bedroom on a Winter's eve) it's easy to use all those crappy feelings to be mean or cruel to somebody. If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say it at all.
3. Be as confident as you want. Last year I made a resolution to not care what people thought of me, not saying I will become a huge rebel and wear radiator's on my elbows, but saying that if people didn't like or appreciate me because of my appearence or personality so be it. I'd like to think I've done that successfully but sometimes it can be hard to feel confident, ecpsecially when you're not doing something your peers are doing. 2015 will be the year of strutting my stuff in whatever I want and I hope you will too!
4. Embrace oddities. Rather than complaining about how my nose isn't elfin like, or my cheekbones aren't...cheeky enough, I'm really going to try and embrace the things that seperate us from others.
5. Try and drink a green smoothie for breakfast most days just because they're delicious and nutritious!
6. Take health and fitness seriously, but practise balance. Health isn't an 'all or nothing' kind of thing - it's all about balance. No "cheat meals" or "clean eating" just wholesome and healthy foods with the exception of foods which are nourishing to our soul.
7. Do more charity runs! Hopefully I'll be doing runs for cancer and muscular dystrophy as they mean so much to me and I want to do as much as I can to help.
Well then. I feel like a walking talking cheese board (a vegan one of course) but there we have it!
Please tell me yours in the comments as i would love to know.
HAPPY NEW YEAR GUYS I WISH YOU LUCK LOVE AND LAUGHTER!
