LET'S DO THIS!!
I feel like 2016 was a really hard year for myself and alot of people around me. I read back through my goals for 2016 and i'm so proud of myself for what i've achieved.
I haven't achieved all of my goals for 2016 but I have ticked off most of them. I'm really proud of my blog and feel 2016 was a great year for my blog, i've spent alot of time working with new brands and my instagram game has stepped up. My pictures are alot better and I feel I have been blogging alot.
I've worked with some amazing brands this year such as Kurt Geiger, Jamie's Italian, Johnny Loves Rosie, Freya, The Clothes Show, Rush Hair, Benito Brows and many many more.
I got my 2 and a half stone award for Slimming World, I didn't manage to get to target but I got very close!!
Clint and I still have our flat and we've managed to budget for a whole year and have loved living together.
We went to Turkey on Holiday with my mom.
A few of our friends have had babies :)
2016 hasn't all been great though,
A close family member was ill and in hospital which was so horrible, she's back to her normal self and much better now which is amazing and i'm so grateful.
One of my friends had a really horrible thing happen to her and her family and I hate that something so horrific could happen to such an amazing person in my life. She will never get over it but shes so so strong and i'll always be there for her.
I was diagnosed with Anxiety, I had 3 weeks off work and was really down. It affected work and my blog. I didn't blog much and I didn't Vlog for a while so it have a big impact on my everyday life.
However towards the end of 2016 I went on an anxiety course and learnt all about Anxiety and I haven't had any symptoms yet in 2017 and i'm so proud of myself as I feel i've used the course to manage my symptoms.
Personally my year wasn't that bad in comparison to others I know that! I know that 2016 as a whole was pretty shit, we lost some amazing people and theres been alot of change. Brexit and Trump are just two of those changes but It's 2017 now !
MY GOALS FOR 2017!!
- BE MORE POSITIVE ( i know that a cliche)
after being so down and unhappy because of my anxiety I want to look at life in a positive way and have a much more positive mindset.
- GET BACK TO SLIMMING WORLD AND GET TO TARGET
I'm actually going back to group tonight and I know I can do this!
- GO ON HOLIDAY
We did it last year so i'd love to save up for another holiday maybe later in the year or maybe even book somewhere amazing for 2018
-SEE FRIENDS MORE
We have amazing friends and I feel like sometimes work comitments can get in the way. I want to make more of an effort to see friends more. I did start this towards the end of 2016.
-RESEARCH CAREER OPTIONS
One of my goals for 2016 was to start my teaching career whether it be work experience etc and I didn't manage to do this. I'm not sure what I want to do whether I still think teaching is for me. I want to do some research into jobs and teaching etc and decide my next move with my career.
