Reflection on New Year's Resolutions...

Hey there,

Halfway through the year already with only 20 more Fridays until Christmas - how time flies! I couldn't think of a better time to write yet another blog post than on my lunch break with the summer sun streaming through my office windows! 

My New Year's Resolutions

Since we are flying through 2015, I thought I'd take the time to sit back and reflect upon some promises I made to myself all the way back in January. Usually I avoid making resolutions - I hate sticking to guidelines and following rules, but this year was something different. I was determined to start my adulthood in a positive frame of mind!

Believe in Myself More
2015 was the start of a whole 'new me.' I know it's all very cliche, but I was determined this would be the year of positivity and change!The best possible advice I could honestly give anyone suffering with self-esteem issues is to surround yourself with people who make you happy. Since leaving education and busying myself at work, I've transformed into a whole new woman!

Panic Attacks
Panic attacks have always been an issue for me - no amount of explaining could ever picture how difficult it is to live with anxious episodes and panic attacks! Never knowing when they might happen or what may trigger them is a huge worry for me, but I am slowly and gradually learning to deal with them and am proud of how far I've come - onwards and upwards!

Appreciate those Special to Me
It takes a lot to realise just how precious your social life is - they may not be blood related but your friends are the family you choose! Spending time with positive people will make a huge difference and recently, I've become a part of a new circle of friends. Although we may have our petty arguments, we are an extremely supportive bunch and I treasure their company dearly!

Read More
Growing up, reading was my absolutely favourite pastime - I'd always have my head deep in a book. Since commuting to work, I've picked up this hobby again and am gradually becoming an avid bookworm. I mean, what better way to pass the time commuting backwards and forwards to work! Look out for some book reviews on my little slice of the Internet - coming soon to a blog near you...

Smile More
Simple, yet effective - a smile can go a long way! I've never been confident in showing off my smile, but now I can't resist taking a selfie everywhere I go. You'll never catch me without a big grin on my face!
