2017 is finally upon us and we're all more motivated than ever to make this year the year. For me this year is mainly about finishing my a levels and starting university, a test of my independence and maturity! So to get the best possible start I did these three things...
De-clutter your space:
I don’t know about you but I cannot feel fresh until my surroundings look like it first. So my first step was to pick up the post-apocalyptic mess up from my floor and organize it. This consisted of long-lost school books that I had been looking for and also many, many, socks that crave for a spin in the washing machine.
New years resolutions:As always I will make a new year’s resolution list. But this time I won’t fill it up with unnecessary crap that would only be on there for the sake of it. I want to keep it to a minimal of 3 resolutions:
- Read more – Not only to extend my vocabulary but to also broaden my knowledge around all topics.
- Be more energetic- Firstly I need to stop taking a nap everyday after school. Also I hope that being more energetic will boost my confidence up to a point where I can easily deliver speeches in front of large crowds.
- Maintain my blog- I want to post at least once every week on my blog and also at least 4 times a week on my Instagram. I find it much easier to keep up with my Instagram but it’s still going to be hard taking so many pictures!
Start and hope to end with a positive mindset:
A positive and happy attitude is key to moving forward I think. Every time I feel a bit disheartened by a failure I have a bunch of quotes I scroll through(and I’ll share them in my next post!). They just help me fuel myself back up again so I can get over whatever had me down.
Let me know how your new year was and if you have any new years resolutions!
