New Year, Newer You

If we’re going to be thinking about reflection and self-growth today, then     writing a list of New Year resolutions and things we’d ‘hope’ to achieve would be pretty useless. Ten pounds lighter by Tuesday? A mansion by Monday? The owner of a gold plated Porsche before bedtime? 

Really, we should be focusing on how we can get what we want. And to do that, we need to think about what went wrong in the first place.

It’s safe to say that a large chunk of 2015 was a time of turbulence for me. But that’s okay – because I learned from my mistakes and those experiences.

It dawned on me last night, as I was playing a rather competitive game of Trivial Pursuit with old friends, that there’s nothing wrong with staying in rather than partying on club stages until 5am. But the latter is okay too – in small doses. 

2015 taught me that everything I achieve is down to me. The only person who can motivate you to chase your ambitions and hunt your demons is yourself. We’re all human and mistakes are almost necessary for success. Love isn’t about waiting around for someone. It is, however, about being brave. Travel is essential and the chicken noodle equivalent for the soul. Family is important. Fashion is what really gets my heart racing. It’s entirely okay to try something new. 

  
I think 2016 is the year to be as fearless as possible. I want it to be full of free falling and tight rope defying risks – but the right kind of risks, this time. 

Happy New Year, everyone.
