Hi guys! I recently turned 21 and for my birthday, my boyfriend took me on a surprise trip to Malaga for a long weekend! It was such a special thing for him to do and I couldn't thank him enough! I'm also so impressed that he managed to keep it a secret!
Whilst we were away it gave me a few days to relax and think about things. It allowed me to look back on all of the positive memories I had from the past few years and also got me thinking about what was to come. That's when I decided that since my January new year resolutions didn't really work out too well, that I would make my own new year of my life resolutions. Hopefully these ones will go a bit better!
I sat down and thought about all of the things I wanted to do and achieve this year of my life before I'm 22. First things first is that I really really wanted to start posting on my blog frequently! I wanted a space to record how well I'm doing with my goals and I wanted to make note of all of my favourite things from this year, whether that be memories I make, trips I go on, adventures I have or things I've bought and loved!
Another thing I really want to do is one of the most important things which is to love and treat my self better. This one includes a few things. Firstly, I want to lose some weight and really get my body to be the best shape it can be as it's the only one I have and I need to take better care of it! So with exercise, eating right and drinking plenty of water, that's what I intend to do! I also want to take really good care of my skin so I'm totally revamping my skin care routine with all new products. One really important thing about setting myself these goals is to make sure that I reward myself regularly to encourage me to stick at them, so I've decided that I'm going to make mini goals every so often, such as if I go to the gym so many times in a week and ensure that every time I go, I work as hard as possible or even if I drink enough water every day for a week (something that I'm particularly bad at), then I will treat myself with luxury beauty items and eventually when I get myself to the shape that makes me happy, then I can treat myself with new clothes! Hopefully with this and the results of sticking with it, I will stay motivated.
Something else that I am determined to finally do, is to learn how to drive!! I have taken a few lessons but driving is something that I really struggle with. I don't mean that I am bad at it, I mean that it is something that makes me have the worst anxiety imaginable. I get so scared about the cars around me , it makes me feel physically sick and then I end up cancelling lessons and quitting! It annoys me so much as I know it is something that I want to do so badly but I really need to get over my fear! Again this is definitely something that I will have to reward myself for as this is the thing I know I will struggle with the most!!
One of the most exciting things on my list to do before I'm 22 is to travel Australia! My boyfriend and I have decided to give up our tenancy on our house so that we can save up to go to Australia in December! We are planning to go for around 3 months and see as much as we possibly can! Depending on if we have any money left we are hoping to also go to Bali, New Zealand and maybe even Thailand if we're really lucky with saving! Traveling is something that I absolutely love doing and we have a few more places on our list for the future!
Due to going to Australia this does mean that I will have to quit my current job so unfortunately one of the less exciting things I have had to add to my list is to get a new job when we are back from our trip! In total honesty, I have absolutely no idea what I want or plan on doing so with this one I will have to wait until closer to the time!
I will make sure to keep my blog updated on my progress and would love to hear if any of you have any goals set!
Lots of love
