Happy New Year everyone! ⭐️
I hope your Christmas break was a happy and blessed one. It’s hard to believe it’s been a full 365 days since my very first blog post! It was exciting, new and a massive accomplishment for me to open my heart to the internet. I’ll be honest, 2016 could have been better in a lot of ways but I can’t dwell on the negatives. I won’t… not anymore. New year, new me and all that!
My resolutions can sometimes be unattainable. I think I only achieved about a quarter of what I had intended last year but hey, life just goes that way sometimes. So this year, I’m trying to be a little more realistic but really sometimes you just have to think BIG… so let’s get to it!
Travel The World
I’d love to say we’ve planned amazing trips to exotic locations but alas, time and money cannot be forgotten. So with that in (constant) mind we’ve settled for a definite summer holiday to Spain, a potential trip to Italy and “the big one” is a huge maybe to Iceland. At the end of the day… this time last year, if you’d have said I’d go on a 3 week trip to Australia, I would have laughed saying it’s impossible. It’s not impossible, anything can happen! LOVE THAT!
Family Are Everything
This is a huge intention for me. My family live in Kent and I live in Southampton, so it’s a good two and a half hour drive if we want to see them. Usually we’re limited to visiting family on special occasions which is generally May and Christmas. I want to change that. I’d love to visit my Nannie and Grandad more especially, at least once a month. If I learnt anything in 2016, it’s that family are everything and you shouldn’t wait to see your loved ones. I missed saying goodbye to someone I loved so much and I have to live with that. I’ve learnt and I won’t make that same mistake again. I’ll make the time this year and carry that into the rest of my life.
Yoga is a dream. I get emotional thinking of how far I’ve come since starting. It’s fulfilled my life so much and I couldn’t imagine now not being a little yogi. I can’t express enough how much I intend to devote this year to being a better person inside and out. Drink more water, eat organic, more sleep, those affirmations… wow. I love this world and would love to share that feeling but you’ve got to discover it for yourself. If you’re reading this, join me in the Revolution… the 31 Days of Yoga! You won’t regret it.
I love our little home so freakin’ much (as if I haven’t said that enough)! It’s the best but it needs a few tweaks here and there… mainly the kitchen. Our “New Year Super Energy (!)” is going into redoing our entire kitchen. I’m going to have so much fun ripping out the old units (if they’ll let me!) Designing our own kitchen is going to be a great project for us and we can’t await to get the ball rolling.
New Little Addition
We’ve decided on a kitten this year for definite! I’ve been given the all clear by the husband who I think… let’s face it… was worn down by me saying I’d love a puppy so badly! (I joke of course! 😜) I love you so much Joel! Thank you for putting up with me and my crazy dreams and pet-broodiness. This intention could totally mean that other thing we all know I’d love more that anything in the world but I’m thinking about what is in my control and right now that isn’t just yet. Watch this space though… 2017 feels like it’s going to be AMAZING!
