OK, so am I the only one who thinks all this new year, new me is bullshit? Controversial opinion over here, I know. 2017 was one of the hardest years of my life, and I thought the year before that was bad.. I learn a hell of a lot from my bad years. I learnt I am a stronger person than I thought I was.
This year, I want to be the best version of myself. I want to travel, I want to have experiences with my friends, I want to have to speak French and Spanish. I want to eat different foods. I don’t want to retreat to being the shell that I became.
When I was 16, I got on a plane to Brussels to go working in a kitchen where I didn’t know anyone, I didn’t fully understand the language and I didn’t really know what I was doing but I got on a bus in Cork and got off a plane in Belgium and it made me a better person (I enjoyed it so much I went back the following year again). I lost that drive for a while but this year I have so many plans.,
If have been following me for a while, you may have read me saying that I am back to being my old self. I am in some ways and in other ways, I have grown up. I have started looking at things like travelling like the old me did and that makes me really happy.
When I moved into my own house, I started the whole eating healthy and exercising regularly craic. I feel so much better after starting to cut out crap. While living at home, I was eating due to boredom and now I’m slightly considering training for a marathon. I used to run a lot to de-stress and now I just want to push myself to do something out of the box.
I went to see The Greatest Showman last weekend and there is a song in it This is Me that has become my new anthem.. Just to let you know.
OK, not my best post (what can I say,m I write best after 10 pm and its only 7.30)
Thanks for reading,
