It’s 2013! To celebrate the new year I decided some changes needed to take place on my blog so as you will notice I now have a new much simpler format and I have updated my pages so they are a bit more relevant. Whilst updating my blog I made some observations about how I’ve changed and begun to understand myself a little better and I thought it would be more appropriate to make new years REVolutions. If I’m honest I started my blog last summer because I was bored. I was bored with myself and I didn’t feel like I was heading anywhere. My dancing career had fallen flat and suddenly I had all this spare time for myself but no idea what to do with it. Writing was a form of escapism for me and I had kept a diary since as long as I could remember so an obvious answer was to somehow keep a log of my thoughts and feelings but share them with people who I could relate to. Last year I made the following resolutions:
1. Decide what I want to do in the future
I suppose I still don’t know what I want to do in the future, sometimes I don’t know what I want to eat for breakfast. I am a very indecisive person but I don’t think that should matter, to some extent not having my future mapped out is an advantage because it helps me to work it out as I go along. Going by your instinct isn’t a bad thing so maybe I was not wrong this time, the resolution was.
2. Get along with all my friends and attempt to make more
I hope I’ve done this, I certainly feel like I’ve tried to get along with all my friends but I suppose I’d have to ask my friends to know exactly where I stand with this. With regards to making more friends I think this needs to be my new years resolution this year, I’ll be going to college in September anyway so I suppose that will be my opportunity to make more friends.
3. Try my best in my GCSE’s
I’ve tried hard in my exams this year and although it was hard at first I’m well on my way to getting the results I need to be happy and proud of myself. It’s a work in progress but if I continue putting the work in and spend less time procrastinating then I should do well.
As for my resolutions for this year, I’m going to make them happen. I’m going to try to put right everything that went wrong last year even if that involves making some mistakes along the way. I want to stay true to myself instead of lying to everyone about who I am even if that means that I discover I’m not that similar to the people who I thought I was. I’m not trying to say that I haven’t been true to people around me I just don’t think I need to hide things about myself any more. So my resolutions are:
Be true to myself and all the people around me- even if that involves finding out I’m different to what I thought I was.
Become more self-confident- so I can do the things I’ve always wanted to do.
Take chances- because there is no reason why you shouldn’t, life is for living.
