But, this year I want to push myself out of that way of thinking to do exciting things. Maybe it’s about getting on a plane on my own or with people I’ve never travelled with or offering my photographic skills (for free!) at someone’s wedding (side note: I really, really, really want to do this year, so if you know anyone or yourself are getting married this year, please get in touch!)
Life can become very mundane if you don’t do things that make you happy. And I intend to do more of that this year!
This one also concerns itself with my Blog and Instagram. I always worried that people who I know from my “non blogging” circles would judge me and laugh at what I was doing on my little space on the web. But really,I should be proud of this blog and what it offers me and what opportunities I’ve been given off the back of it. In fact, really, it’s pretty cool and anyone who thinks otherwise needs to “get in the sea” (is that still a relevant saying?) In conclusion, there will most certainly be less cares given to the things that do not need any cares.
Getting back to the gym is a priority for me. It makes me feel stronger, healthier and above all more positive about everything. Those gym endorphins kick ass and so do I when I go. My plan is to crack on with a plan mid January (when hopefully people have gotten it out of their systems!) so if anyone has an amazing “I’m not very good at the gym but I can do this really well” fitness plan, then please HOLLA at me.
I’m also going to make sure that I start taking more vitamin supplements/eating more fruit. And I’m going to start taking my antihistamines all year round. A whole 365 days are spent sniffling, sneezing and generally being allergic to everything that I’ve partly got used to it. I shouldn’t have to be known as “the girl who always needs a tissue” and I’m hoping if I get in to a routine someone can come up with a better nickname come 2019!
There’s nothing quite like getting lost in a novel and falling in love with it’s characters!
I want to be that person that sends flowers to someone, just because. I want to be that person who will lend an ear when a friend is in need. I want to be that person who will drop things to be there for someone, I want to push my friends to be the best version of themselves and I want to be someone’s biggest fan, cheerleading them along the way.
This year I’m going to stay in my lane. I’m not going to concern myself with “but she’s doing this and I’m not” or “how come they get all the opportunities and I don’t” – gone are those days. I’m going to shout and whoop and be that person who supports those who are there for me and celebrate their successes just as much as my own.
Positivity breeds positivity and I’ve learnt that from my self-worth epiphany. In turn this has brought me more opportunities than I could have ever imagined. I’m making more plans, I’m managing my time better, I’m approaching brands with proposals that 2016 Bee wouldn’t even know possible.
By finally accepting that I’m good at something and I can make a really good go of it, I’m way happier and my mental health has improved tenfold.
I want to make sure we have more days out exploring Yorkshire and the UK. There will always be my camera to hand because I just love shooting the most glorious scenes. It’s becoming a passion that I can’t do without now.
This is the year we look for our second home. As much as I’ll be sad to say goodbye to our little humble abode, we are going to need a bigger house one day and I’d rather be ready for that sooner than later. We already have a buyer for our house. I’ve finally convinced Mr C to go look at a house that ticks many of our boxes – however, it doesn’t have a garage (one of Mr C’s stipulations!) so we need to think of clever ways to help him realise that it’s not the be all and end all… (send help!)
I'm Bee. 27 year old who is finally starting to understand herself. A Scorpio that's too nice to use that sting in her tail, regularly found searching for holidays or online shopping. Happiest when being fed, travelling & spending time with Mr C.
