These are a few Insta pics from the past two months which happens to be my favourite time of the year. Why? Firstly November is my Birthday month, it’s the start of summer and there is always a sense of excitement in the air. December because it’s Christmas time and I LOVE Christmas because it brings family gatherings, food comas, presents, festivity and the celebration of life! It also slowly welcomes a new year… For me, this year has been crazy. It has brought some of the greatest highs, and simultaneously, lows I have ever experienced in my life. So much has happened this year and although a lot of it’s been great, I am so ready for a new year.
1. Start reading again. I used to be a book worm and always have a book beside my bed, however, the accessibility of series watching (on laptops in bed), social media and even blogging have slowly lead to a book drought for me. I will put an end to this! I am going to start reading before bed every night. It’s also a great way for me to unwind after a long and busy day.
2. Start exercising and leading a more healthy lifestyle. I am terrible when it comes to exercising and I am super lucky my genes allow me to have some kind of muscle tone without working out. However, it really makes you a happier (endorphins) and more beautiful person. Mind, body and soul. I want to start gyming in the morning before work.
3. Sign up to be an organ donor. Interesting facts: One organ donor can provide 7 people with life saving organs. Each day about 57 people world wide receive organ transplants, while 13 die waiting. I’ve read up on it and it’s super easy to sign up. You can read more here.
4. Lastly- toughen up! I would like to start being less sensitive, care less what people think and appreciate the good stuff more.
