Just a quick message to say Happy New Year. Last year I had a pretty good year.
It was a revelation. I grew older and surprisingly wiser. I’m at that stage where i’m finally putting myself first and not allowing people to make me feel like shit. I have an amazing friends circle, I’ve released two books! 📚
I’ve not only started my website but kept it running. I’ve collaborated with a musician and also with a poet. Gone back to University to do my Masters in Professional Creative Writing, I’ve lost weight… my mental health is sky rocketing and I’m learning to accept people’s true colours when they reveal them.
I no longer entertain negative vibes. Life is hard enough for someone with a mental health condition and allowing friends to dump on you when you’re an empath makes things so much shittier. I’m taking steps to take care of myself first.
I adore my family, my friends, my pets and all those who are kind when they don’t have to be. The friends who became family and the family who are the best of friends.
This year I want to focus more on writing. Whether that’s a blog post every week or whether it’s 100 words per day for my works in progress novels. I need to focus on writing. I’m also going to look for freelance writing jobs. If you know anyone looking to hire, send them my way.
I think I need to be writing in my day job too. I hate my current job. I loved writing letters to customers in my old job. I even like writing procedures so that’s one of the goals.
I also want to focus on my physical and mental health. I started meditating 🧘🏾♀️ at the end of the year and that’s helping me loads. Now, I need to start exercising. Gym memberships are out of the question because I never ever go. So… home workouts is what I need. So I’m going to try and do 30 mins of exercise 3 times a week. Whether that’s yoga or something resembling a run… I need to try.
I’m even doing daily affirmations and trying this 6 Minute Diary that I got from amazon.
I’m still waiting for the Butterfly Effect 🦋 but that’s a situation my head and heart need to work out. I’m excited for 2022 and I’m encouraged to nurture the relationships I currently have and create new ones.
