The year of self discovery.

New year, a time for new beginnings and aspirations, opportunities and potential. At this time of year we make a lot of promises and if we believe what we resolve then we’ll all be seeing in the end of 2015 in idea jobs, perfect relationships and size 6 dresses. If only life were that simple, i’ve tried to be that person and guess what; it doesn’t always work. As a result 2014 was bad, quite possibly one of the worst and i can wholeheartedly say i don’t want a repeat.

This year i have only one goal and that is the goal of self discovery. I want to carry on writing, reading and taking photographs, i want to travel and make new friends as well as enjoying the friendships i already have. I want to try new things and figure out what i enjoy and who i am away from the confines of who i’m expected to be and who i thought i was. I don’t want to please anyone else; i don’t want to be responsible for anyone else, heck i don’t even want to think about anyone else. Selfish? Quite possibly yes, but i’m entitled to be selfish, we all are.

We’re given one life and not to sound trite but that life and how we spend it is precious. One thing that i’ve definitely learnt from this year is that it doesn’t matter what you’ve got around you if you can’t see it yourself, i've seen so many of my friends struggling over the last twelve months and the majority of the time those struggles have been a result of internal not external factors. You will never be happy with what you have, what you're doing or where you are if you aren’t happy within yourself, which is why at the end of the day you are all that really matters.


  1. Happy new year! May all of your wishes come true :)

  5. Great post, beautifully written. I agree with everything you say, definitely think we put a lot of pressure on ourselves when everything we are striving for should make us happy.
