The Beginning of a New Year // 2018

Hello again,

Happy new year guys!!! So today, while I’m sat on my bum on my bed listening to ‘Not Too Deep’ I just fancied writing a post about what I learnt and experienced in 2017 and what I’m going to be taking into 2018 so I hope you enjoy and if not I apologise in advance.

2017 for me was a year of huge growth for me. I made friendships I know will last me a lifetime and learnt that no matter what is going on in life loving myself and caring for me must always come first. It’s definitely been a year of high highs and low lows but I can genuinely say I’ve learnt from it all and wouldn’t change a thing if I could go back and do it again. Me and my friends have became so much closer which means so much to me because I love them so much, I did will in my exams this summer and I got a place at my top choice university so I am really proud of what I have accomplished this year. I have really learnt to look after myself in order to become happier and more chilled out with life which had led me to fall head over heels in love with yoga and working out. I originally started working out because I wanted to lose weight and really process a lot of things going on at the time but now I do it because I love it and because I want to be healthy and happy and that’s such a refreshing feeling for me. Oh and I found Ru Paul’s Drag Race which I love so that’s a plus too!!

As for 2018? Who knows!?! Well the plan is I’m going to be going on a gap year, travelling the world and hopefully meeting some amazing people! While I’m there, I really want to discover who I am and try and figure out what I want to do with my life and hopefully just have a year of making amazing memories and lots of fun! I really want to continue working on my fitness and get healthier and stronger because I love the feeling I’m actually doing something for myself that will benefit me in future, I also really want to continue working on loving myself and just enjoying life because it’s too short to be anything but happy. I am a little scared because I don’t have a ‘set plan’ for what this year has in store but hopefully I won’t die and my friends will all still love me so fingers crossed everything will be fine.

Blog wise? I’m going to start blogging again (woo!), especially once I’ve finished college as I’ll have more time on my hands but my posts are going to be much more lifestyle based. I love makeup and I always will so I’m sure there will be plenty of beauty related posts too but for me I’m just much more into lifestyle content and other topics so I hope y’all will enjoy that too!! And with all the crazy travelling e.c.t I’m going to be next year I’m definitely going to be sharing plenty of that in here too!

My advice for you guys in 2018? Live life, love life and just live every moment to the full. If your unhappy don’t sit their and do nothing about it — take action, talk to someone or start a hobby, anything!! Just try and make the most of every situation but remember your human and having days where your not always happy is normal and okay. when things aren’t so good remember everything happens for a reason and one day you’ll look back and everything will make sense, and more than anything just remember to be kind to yourself – there’s so much pressure and stress in the world you don’t need to add anymore to your plate. And just have fun okay? Yes? Good, great.

I hope you enjoyed this post, hopefully you’ll be reading many more posts from me very soon! Happy new year, I hope you have a great one!

Until next time,

All my love,

Bethan xx
