In all seriousness 2013 has been a really good year and its nice to look back and see what has happened in the past year that has been good.
Personally I am happy that:
- I'm more confident - In one of my posts I spoke about Pole Fitness. I am not the most body confident person in the world and am rarely seen in anything that shows my legs, I practically live in tights. But every Sunday I've been wearing shorts and a vest in front of a large group of skinny girls. I thought they would look at me strangely but I couldn't be more wrong. Those classes have made me feel so much better and making me question if my insecurities are irrational
- I'm more organised - I've finally got myself in order in certain aspects of my life. I'm better at organising time and my money which is very useful when you're a student! It's meant that I've been able to spend more time with my friends and I've made lots of new friends this year which has been great. I've always loved meeting new people and trying new things and I've been very lucky this year in meeting so many fantastic people!
- I've been smiling more - I've always been known for being a bubbly person but the past few years have been a bit difficult. I find it hard to know my place in a friendship group or even just a social situation. So its hard to be happy all of the time and I've always felt a little left out. But this year I've felt like I have a lot of people close to me that I can trust and be myself around which has really helped me. I feel a lot happier a lot more often. Obviously everyone has their bad days but I can take them if it means more happy moments.
- My family are closer - Since me and my brother have both moved out of the house when we're at Uni my parents spend more time together. They used to always argue but now go on holidays for just them two, go on dinner dates and days out. Its nice to know that they can be happy together as no one likes when their parents are always arguing. Its made home a lot more relaxing and fun and even me and my brother get along better than we used to
I'm glad to be starting the new year feeling happier and more confident and hope 2014 will be just as good! I haven't decided my resolutions yet but I'm sure there will be a few. Whether or not I stick to them is another matter.
I hope everybody who reads this has had a good year and are as excited for 2014 - see you next year :)
