Now it’s time to start wrapping up this year I thought I make a personal post that pretty much sums up my year. I feel like 2017 has been my year to finally start growing as a person & discovering what I really want. I’ve always been pretty scared of making big plans & committing to them just because I am a worrier & by worrier I mean a complete stress head worrier. It’s not been the easiest journey but I feel like I’ve come to a really good stage in terms of who I am & where I want to go.
I can quite easily say 2016 was a pretty crap year for me; I had way too many downs compared to ups & I made huge changes to my life. I moved back to England towards the end of the year & started a new relationship so 2017 was my year to sort my head out. I really wanted to bring back the old me I’d lost in previous years & I’m quite happy to say I achieved that.
2017 has brought back my confidence that had hit zero & I started discovering what & who really made me happy. I may not be in the ideal situation living back at home (it does feel like steps back) but it’s giving me the chance to regroup & I’m actually in a better position than I was this time last year.
I’ve saved like a crazy woman & I’m really proud of that. I finally got my breast augmentation which wouldn’t have been possible without the support around me. I said goodbye to part time work & hello to the 9-6 daily grind & just got my shit together!

I may not have reached all my end goals I set for myself this year but I’ve accomplished a few. I’m still a work in progress but I’m really upped my game this year. Maybe its the fact I’m nearly in my mid twenties but I really feel I’ve grown.
I now know what I want from my future & I’m going to work damn hard to get it. No more making empty promises to myself or silly plans that don’t go anywhere. I’m focusing more on growing slowly then beating myself up about not reaching silly goals.
Next year I want to work on not comparing myself to others & finalise a few of my plans I have in mind. I want to explore more countries & just let go of the worry surrounding money. This year I’ve realised I put way too much pressure on myself & that’s got to go. A little doesn’t hurt but no more punishing myself over stupid things. I can’t wait to get pushing forward & gaining more confidence in my decisions.
