Happy new year, loves!
I actually haven’t written one of these in a good 5/6 months so what better way to start the year off than with some coffee time on the blog?
It’s undoubtedly still winter so grab your hot beverage and catch up with me below on where I’ve been and what I have set for 2020:
If we were having coffee, I would tell you…
- Like every year, I make a group of New Years resolutions. Obviously, a good half of them are the same like any other year – read more, do more exercise, eat better, sleep better. This year, I decided that I would learn to cook and make some yummy new dishes. Towards the end of 2019, I got really bored of what I was bringing into work everyday food-wise – I just felt uninspired. I love food but to not put that same passion into cooking is quite frankly disappointing. I mean, I know how to cook but it would just be nice to make something new and get inspired again so I’m starting with my food palette. I’ll finally be able to put some recipe books that I’ve set aside for years into practice too!
- I’m hitting the reset button with the blog. I know I’ve been terrible with keeping track of it, of you, of anything that is non-work related in the latter half of 2019. I’m looking to put things different in 2020 and actually come up with a blogging plan which can you believe it – I have never done before. (I’m a joke, ha!) I have a huge Empties pile which I’ll have to split into at least 3 posts. I also want to tap into a different niche which is more self-care/mental health related. In the meantime, follow me on my Instagram where I sometimes ‘micro-blog’. 🙂
- Speaking of reset, I hope you all had a great holiday season? I have had a good few weeks off work – a break that I have not received since end of August when I traveled to Edinburgh which even then, was work-related! (Although, fun and relaxing.) It felt SO good to sleep until a later time and simply enjoy…doing nothing. I have to admit it was weird at first because I was so used to doing something ALL THE TIME. I’ll be back in work on Monday which in some weird way, I am looking forward to as it’ll give me structure and routine in my life again!
- Perhaps more retrospectively, I should acknowledge 2019 for the year that it was (for me)! It started a bit shaky but it got better as the year went on. Of course, I had some insecurities here and there – I’m only human after all. But I battled through them by gaining confidence in myself and realising from other people’s perspectives, how they truly see me. It was like my bubble burst and I finally found out that I can be confident, that at the best of times I am confident; that I can be a people-person, that I am a people-person. It has been a real game-changer and honestly, I can only see 2020 as a continuation of that self-growth. How did 2019 treat you and what would you like to see in 2020?
It would be interesting to know if any of you made New Years resolutions and if so, what? Of course, if you loathe the whole idea of it, I would be just as interested to know what you look forward to in 2020! 🙂
