So, so far
I’m sticking to my blogging schedule. Kind of, kind of not. *trails off* I mean, this post is late on, isn’t it! Maybe I’ll post on Monday’s & Thursday’s from now on, instead of Sunday & Thursday – I guess we’ll soon find out.
Anyway, today I’m going to be talking about my ‘Fresh start’. I know – please forgive me, I know what it’s like to see thousands of ‘2019 goals’ type of posts in the Reader (which I seriously need to catch up on, by the way – don’t be offended if I haven’t looked at your latest posts! 💞), and just sigh because of the sheer number of posts being posted everyday
(is it just me? It’s just me, isn’t it…).
This will hopefully be the last ‘2019 goals’ themed post, but please enjoy.
For me, this post holds a certain special meaning about the direction my life is going to go, and most of all, it fills me with hope. It means a lot that you have read this far already. 😊
I wish for us all to have a fresh start.
It’s a new year; it’s time for reflections, new goals & aspirations, new experiences (both the good and bad) and undoubtedly change. I’m pretty sure that we all have changed and grown as individuals compared to this time last year. Inevitably, it’s going to happen. We don’t know what’s around the corner, what God or whatever or whoever you believe in has in store for us. We can’t see into the future (although I do know some people that would love to be able to). We just have to accept & try to manage whatever gets thrown our way.
My Fresh Start:
I left 2018 in a very bright, happy place, but I also ended 2018 in a lonely place in terms of my friendships. Things had been bad with my friends for a while, and I struggled to see an end to it, or a place for those friendships to heal. This year, however, I’m hoping for a Fresh Start. I am hoping that I shall meet a few new people that will bring joy to my life, and the lives of those around me. I’m hoping I will be able to once and for all amend my previous friendships or say a tough (or perhaps not so tough) goodbye to people that no longer support me, my morals & my judgements. It would be great to become close to a few of the people that I was originally really good friends with again.
Gosh, I hate being weary of people, it’s too much effort even though I’m only being weary to try & protect myself.
I’m also hoping for a Fresh Start with my love for the school I am currently attending. It truly is a good, ‘solid’ school, but I guess I fell out of love with it when things with my friends got bad. There was no-one I felt I could tell or trust to spill out my emotions on a particularly bad day. I guess I felt alone: and sometimes it’s not good to feel alone, especially in an environment such as your school. And the teachers, ooh, please don’t get me started on them! 😂 They definitely weren’t great throughout this! *stopping before I say too much*
Anyway, to fall back in love with my school & it’s environment would be GREAT. Seriously, you’ve no idea how much it would mean to me to not only love my precious education, but to love the environment it’s given to me in.
And finally, I’m looking for a Fresh Start with my health. I know this is a very bold thing to say, but I always seem to be tired (I know school is partly to blame), and the truth is it’s not good for me. Even throughout the Christmas break, I was still pretty tired 💤 . I’m definitely going to try & maximise the time I spend asleep in bed! 😂
On top of this, I want to become more fit & exercise more on a regular basis. I mean, I can’t keep eating chocolate & not exercising much… I’m pretty good at eating my fruit and veg, so hopefully the next few steps will get me on the road to even better health!
Do you want a Fresh Start for 2019? What do you want your Fresh Start to include? Do you have any particular ‘Fresh Start’ goals for 2019? What do you want your 2019 to look like?
I hope you all achieve your Fresh Start.
