Well Hello 2018

Another year, how did that happen?! I am not a huge January fan – it is so dreary and, after the excitement of Christmas, it always feels a little flat.

However, this year I feel ready for this month, a fresh start, a new chapter. The new year always brings so much promise, optimism and hope. A clean slate to start all over again, the opportunity to forget all the upset from the previous year and essentially start again. After family time, some time out and a little trip away, I have started 2018 feeling much happier, my head feels clearer and I feel less stressed. I know this week normal life will resume, I return to work and the girls go back to school – life will get crazy busy again and I will lose the luxury of time, but I am going to try and hold on to this feeling of calm for as long as I can.

Every year I set myself a few little goals but this year I have just one main aim and that is to concentrate on myself. I worry so much about what other people think, I honestly don’t know why. I think being on social media definitely contributes to this. This year I want to stop, I want to feel happy in myself and stop worrying about other people. I think I need to realise that not everyone will like me, I’m not always going to be everyone’s cup of tea but that is ok. There will always be people that try to knock my confidence or bring me down. There will always be people who question what I do.  I need to try and remember other people’s opinions of me don’t need to affect me. I just need to remember what is important.

I want to feel better in myself. I want to build up my confidence and be the best person, the best friend and the best Mum that I can be. I have gotten so lost this past year but I feel so ready to try and find myself. I need to surround myself with people I love and who love me, and not waste time on people who aren’t worth it. I am getting rid of all negatives from my life.

So in 2018 I plan to look after myself, reignite my passions and get my sparkle back.

Have you got any new year resolutions?

  1. What a great goal to have. I really need to try and look after myself more, I think we all do.

  2. I really hope that you can keep some of that calm for the months and year to come, I have a similar one and my post this week is quite similar too really, its lovely to experience a little bit of calm even if it is just for a week a year!! #TheOrdinaryMoments

  3. Brilliant aim for the year I think self care on every level is important. We get so wrapped up in all the little people and life that we’re often left behind. I wish you all the successes! ‪Thank you for linking up to the #familyfunlinky‬

  4. That sounds like a great goal Natalie. I’m very similar, and strangely I go through phases where what other people think really bothers me, and other phases where I don’t seem to care much at all. It’s a really hard one to get over, but the freedom it gives you is huge. I really hope you manage it – it sounds like you’re already well on the road.

  5. What a lovely positive post and totally agree we all need to surround ourselves with people that build us up! Good luck and Happy New Year! #KCACOLS

  6. This is exactly my goal for the year too. I find it hard to not let what others do and think get to me but I need to try harder this year to do what make me happy especially for the blog #kcacols

  7. this is the single most important goal you can achieve! Not givin’ a flying duck about what people think is so very empowering! I wish you all the successes and bliss ahead! #kcacols xoxo
