I know I’m a few weeks late posting this but it’s been a surprisingly busy start to 2015, where I’ve somehow nose-dived straight into work. Probably for the best seeing as it’s always so difficult switching back to work mode after a long and restful break. So it’s just the right kind of incentive to get you going.
Well, I hope you’ve all had a good start to the year. I’m pretty sure you’ve all got your resolutions and exciting plans for the 2015, many of you turning a new leaf on different aspects of your life. For me, it’s career and well-being; finally setting out to do what I love and makes me happy. It hasn’t been a great journey to get to this place, particularly over the last 18 months where I’ve questioned, doubted, and have been ridden with guilt and fear over where I saw myself going. That ‘not-knowing’ feeling has, quiet frankly, been the worst thing for someone who thought she knew she had everything more or less worked out. There’s been a lot of tears shed and crazy meltdowns because of it, but hey, plans don’t always work…..I know my fair share of that. However, this time round, what I’ve learnt the most out of all this is to cut myself some slack and just find a way to be kind to myself – something I quite often neglect when I’m constantly out there striving to be perfect or trying to achieve all those goals I set for myself.
So anyway, that’s really my motto….or word for this year. Kindness. Not just to others, but to myself. And with that in mind, I’m off to forge my new creative journey, which will no doubt bring its own woes and hurdles but, at least I know what I’ll be telling myself should things get bumpy along the way! :) Here’s to new beginnings and positive outlooks!
Well, what about you? What’s your outlook for 2015? I’d love to hear if you have key word or motto that you plan to follow this year!
PS. Oh and before I forget, I’m busy trying to finish my new portfolio website for the end of the month so I’ll definitely keep you posted on that. You may have already noticed a few changes on here so yea…..it’s slowly getting there! Rebranding yourself is hard!! :) And can you believe it’s been 3 years since I started all this blogging malarkey!!? It’s definitely one of the best things I’ve done and I have my husband to thank for that! x
