I can’t believe it’s been 6 months since I last wrote a blog post, a post that was meant to be weekly (so ashamed of myself). But I couldn’t resist the urge to write something this evening, especially as I’m reflecting a lot as the year and another birth year comes to a close (I’m getting old….) and I guess I needed somewhere to pour out some of my thoughts so here I am (I’m not using you I promise:-) )
So my 2015 was an incredible year to say the least. Was far from perfect but one of the best years I’ve had in a LONG time. A few key things stood out for me this year:
- I FINALLY plucked up the courage to leave a job I had been unhappy with for a long while without looking back (If you know me well, you’ll fully get this point)
- I turned an idea of mine which I’ve had for years into a physical project
- Ended some toxic friendships and those which just weren’t beneficial to my life in any way
- Rekindled some old but beautiful friendships which I’m so grateful for
- And of course, I GOT ENGAGED!!!!!! (Had to drop that in there lol)
One of the main things I did this year, besides from becoming a bride-to-be (yes I had to drop that in there again lol) was become more focused on my progression and my future. As they say, time waits for no man. I took a step back from anything that even slightly resembled idle gossip, constantly socialising (not that it isn’t good to socialise, but if it is hardly ever beneficial to your development as a person or in your career then it’s not always necessary right?). Re-evaluating my mindset and making a conscious effort to explore new realms of life (and not being afraid to do this solo) definitely helped me to focus. Reassessing a lot of friendships helped with reducing distractions too. Now I’m a lover of friends, love all of my friends, but life cannot constantly revolve around friends. We each have our lives to live, and if it means that we speak once a week rather than once a day to get the most out of our lives then so be it. And lucky for me, my true friends understood that 🙂
Yes I procrastinated, a lot! A flaw I’m still working on but I’m getting there.But the fact that I was able to actualise a lot of mere thoughts is a big deal (well for me anyway lol) and I can’t wait to see how they’ll blossom and impact on the lives of others in 2016, can’t wait!!
Now I don’t believe in New Year resolutions, mainly because I’m useless at sticking to them! But I do have a set goals to be achieved in 2016 with dates by each of them, which will all be completed by God’s grace. As I turn 28, I’m super super grateful with what 27 has brought and super super excited with what 28 is going to bring.
That’s my ramble for the year over 🙂
See you in 2016
