New Year, Same Me

Happy new year people (and dogs)!

So I’m sat here after a 6km walk with the dogs, back in my PJs watching Power thinking that I haven’t written anything for a while.

I started writing this as a way of just getting things off my mind and just put my thoughts out there. Its funny because over the past few weeks I’ve had a few people come up to me while I was out talking to me about this blog and how they’ve read it and asking when will I be writing again. Apparently reading about what I get up to and what I’ve achieved on my own can be a bit of an inspiration (their words, not mine)

2018 was an interesting year, lots of highs and several lows. I’ve realised that I’m stronger physically and emotionally than I thought I was. For the first time in a long time I’m happy with myself and who I am. Ive accepted this is who I am and if people don’t like it then its tough. This is me.(I do love that song). I might be too much for some people and I might not have been enough for other people but Ive learnt that its not my problem, its theirs. So many people talk about new year new me. Not me this time, new year same me. Its other people around me that need to change if they don’t like it.

I have a few things I want to write about, my flagging of my patio, my trip to ibiza, my new hair, my new lips, my migraine that left me without speech or vision for several days and a patient and a few other bits and bobs too.

Ive decided I’m not dating any more, honestly I can’t be bothered with the hassle. Im very happy on my own, doing my own thing with the dogs. Ive made my house nice, and I’m going to continue to do each room just as I want it. I have a new focus this year and its all about ME!! So I intend to say no more to things I don’t want to do, not just do them because I feel like I should. Say yes to doing more things that I want to do and that make me happy. I want people around me that better me, that make me laugh, people that I trust and people that genuinely have my best interests at heart. Soooo if you don’t fit into the above categories then (another song reference) Thank you, Next.

No New Years resolutions for me here, just more of the same but I’m setting myself some goals to accomplish. Last year it was pull ups and press ups and I managed that! this year time to step it up….

This year my list is

  • Learn Spanish
  • Learn to belly dance
  • Finish my masters
  • Explore a new place once a month with the dogs

Lets see how I get on…..
