So it might be slightly late for new years resolutions. But I like to see these as goals rather than things I want to change about myself.
Ever since I was 9 I have dreamt of travelling the world… It all started when I had to move back home from Florida to England… I was so fed up with moving back to England! And deep down I think I always carried this with me. I have always talked about travelling and the day I got back off a holiday to Croatia I just thought ‘fuck it, I’m going’ I asked my boyfriend if he would come.. booked our tickets and three months later I was on a plane to Berlin. Everything just fell into place after that. So I put my mind to it and here are some of the things I want to put my mind to this year…
Run half a marathon, everyone will probably laugh at me for considering this but it would be crazy to do something completely out of my comfort zone! It would be amazing for myself to keep on proving that anything is possible when you put your mind to it… ask me a year ago if I thought I’d be living abroad for nearly 4 months now? I wouldn’t have believed you, it’s not for fitness or anything like that, I just want to get over that finish line and know that it’s mind over matter. No holding back!
Transition to a vegan diet After staying with a vegan family for six weeks I have learnt how easy it is to live fully vegan. I felt so much healthier in myself and all of the pros out weighed the cons. I’m not sure if I will complete this by the end of the year but where possible I aim to be eating vegan food as much as I can rather than buying into the meat and dairy industries. It’s 2017, people are waking up to how bad the meat industry is and I think it’s great that vegans and vegetarians are no longer alienated into a group of negativity.
Read more informative books I am very interested in Psychology and how the mind works, I often find myself reading articles or watching documentaries on murder cases relating to psychology and leave myself thinking, “why would someone do that?” I really want to learn more about how the mind works and what makes people behave in the way they do.
Switch off social media more… as I get older the more I realise that technology is overcoming everything… Especially the younger generation. From having younger sisters I have noticed how absorbed people are becoming in the tangle of other peoples lives. Other than writing content for my blog I am trying to limit my time online, stop checking Facebook, stop endless scrolling… this is doing nothing but turning me into a zombie. After watching Black Mirror it really opened my eyes to the way society is headed… I’m not saying it is a bad thing but personally I just want to focus on me and making myself happy.
