I thought I would take the time to wish you all a happy new year and have a review of my year that has passed and take a small look forward.
This year has been massive for me. I feel like I started the year on a personal low in some respects. I was overweight, tired and unhealthy. This year I have lost over 22kg, got healthy, healed my tummy and exercise has become a real fixture in my world that I would miss. I also, feel that I have got myself into a much happier headspace with the help of the naturopath and lifestyle coach I am much more relaxed about life, enjoying it and achieving and also knowing what I want.
This year I took risks and tried a new job with a lot of unknown factors. It has paid off really well. I am so happy, challenged, motivated, supported and really enjoying it. I had my end of year review which went well and I am so excited about my future with this company.
This year I have learned to love exercise of all varieties and I have stopped using it as a punishment for my body, I do exercise I enjoy and I miss it when I don’t do it.
This year I have cleared out a lot of clothes as I lost weight and I am working towards replacing the essentials and having a handful of trendy/ fun items. I am trying to be functional whilst keeping fashion as something fun I enjoy. In a similar vein this year I discovered mineral makeup which revolutionised my skin. My skincare routine has been streamlined, my face base is always mineral, most of my makeup is natural but I am experimenting with different looks and products and enjoying it.
This year I discovered god knows best. I am not getting all deep and meaningful I am talking… Hair colour. I returned to my roots and found a hair dresser who would enhance my natural colour and not cover it. I have been usin YouTube tutorials to get a bit braver with hair styles and have learned to love my conical styler for beach waves.
This year I stuck to a diet, I lost weight and whilst I have more to go I am happy with my size. More importantly I found the energy and strength to stop eating fodmaps which has, no joke, been the single best decision ever. I finally feel like my body works.
This year I learned to trust the universe. I learned to listen to myself, be honest about what I want and what is Important and to trust the universe will provide the opportunities. It has blown me away how once I stopped trying to force things and lived in the moment more so many opportunities I thought were impossible have come my way. I have had a new example of this but can’t talk about it yet, needless to say the next few years could be so exciting.
I have really reviewed what I want from life and really I want another couple of years of working hard before, fingers crossed, having children. We have the next two years to get ourselves sorted but I don’t want to leave it much later. I have realised that having a family is really important to me, 32 seems like a good age to start for me!
This year my wedding has tried me and tested me and through it all there has only been one factor.. I can’t flipping wait to marry my man.. He is a legend and my absolute favourite person ever. I don’t care about the day at all.
This year I did a lot of saving and paying off. I also….started blogging and love it. Blogging definitely helps me on my journey and to focus.
So many other things will have happened but that’s my little run down.. Well done if you got this far.
I wish you all the happiness for the new year.., lets catch up tomorrow for some 2013 goals!
