My Resolutions for 2020

Wednesday, 26 February 2020

"The best time for new beginnings is now."

First off, let me preface this post by saying that this this one is going to be largely self-indulgent. It's been a little while since I've given an update into what's going on in my life, so I figured the New Year would be a better time as any. And, like many others, the new year - and new decade, at that - has had me pondering about my choices up to this point and what I would like to change about my life going forward. Any bad habits I want to break, new habits I want to form, or anything I would simply like to get around to that I haven't yet done.

Happy New Year!

No, your eyes do not deceive you -  the year is 2020 and this is a brand new post!

I'll spare you all the details of where the hell I've been over the past several months (hint: a combination of living a busy adult life and being plain lazy whenever I've had time off to myself), and jump right in.

Trying the ZOZO Suit: The Personal Measurement System

zozo suit testing review

Hello everyone! How are we doing?

I realised shortly after beginning this post that this will be my first one of 2019 - and we're already 6 days into April!

Truth be told, I had this one planned for probably around 2 months. I took a break from writing the 'Month in Review' posts once the New Year began, and was honestly just waiting around for a new idea/topic/ounce of inspiration to write about. Then popular Youtuber, Safiya Nygaard, uploaded this video back in February and just about blew my mind.

Month/Year in Review: December 2018

Friday, 18 January 2019

"A toast to the old you: if you feel inspired to use the new year to help you reset or change habits: great. And yet: The old you has survived every terrible day, every hard thing, every awful circumstance, and every heartbreak you've ever felt. The old you is a fighter. And that's worth celebrating."
-Emily McDowell

Around this time last year, I wrote a little piece on picking yourself up after falling into a slump: specifically, getting yourself through January and fighting those post-Christmas 'blues'. It was surprisingly inspiring and motivating to go back in time and re-read my own advice, whilst acknowledging  how far I've actually come since last year. 

2018 was challenging, but I managed to get through it. Feelings about the future were prominent: there was uncertainty at every corner as I decided to choose myself and end a long-term, unhealthy and unfulfilling relationship. I was also a fresh graduate and had no idea how soon it would be before I found myself settled into a career, etc. It was definitely scary and uncomfortable and ultimately nerve-wracking.

Thankfully, since that time last year, I'm doing a lot better. I found myself a new home, a new job, and things have been looking up. I'm still dealing with my own shit, but I can confidently say I'm happier with myself and life in general now that 2018 is over. I'm looking ahead to the future with a bit more clarity and optimism and it feels great: bring on 2019!

With that said, here's a look back at some happy moments from December - see ya round 2018, you were a wild ride.
