Yay for another end of year blog post in your blog feed! If only it was easy to detect sarcasm but ah wells. Anyways, I was meant to post this earlier but I’ve been dwelling on writing this throughout the afternoon and have scheduled to post this 5 minutes before the New Year. Why not!
I’ve been taking a step back for the past few months on my blog and it had left me feeling more free and can think a lot more straight. It had also let me think about my blog and how to change it as I did get bored, uninspired and unmotivated, hence the lack of posts and most probably the least interesting posts I had created. Juggling with a full time job as well as blog deadlines is a lot harder than you think. Oh and add in the social life and time to yourself on top of that. My blogging thoughts from last year hasn’t changed and you read the full post here. You may need a cup of tea before reading that. It’s long.
My confidence has deteriorated over the second half of the year. Outfit posts went from a few a month to zilch. It’s just everything from the looks to the body image that had got me down which had also led to fewer beauty reviews that requires a selfie. I am striving to improve myself and changing this as I am wanting to go back and post more outfits. I have been shopping a lot too! Rather than the cliche new year, new me, I have started improving myself a few days ago. I just need to clean up my act, get my eating habits back on track and get back into that exercise routine. The standard stuff.
I may not say thank you enough as I’m not much of an open person but I do generally thank everyone – family, friends, strangers, my blog readers, and everyone else. It’s the small things that gets me going and it may seem like I don’t appreciate it but I do.
Enough of the negativity now. I would say 2015 has been the best year. Old friendships has been reignited and those who I am close with are now even closer to me. I’ve been doing a lot more travelling with the freedom I have and nothing is holding me back. It’s been about me and I have enjoyed life a lot more. I’m definitely carrying on with this. I’m not making any New Year’s resolutions as I will break them – that’s a fact. The only things for me in 2016 are improvements and personal development. Improving ourselves is the only way up and the only way to enjoy every minute we have. Raise a glass and here’s to improving ourselves and grow further!
I hope you all have a great 2016 and positivity comes your way!
