Hello 2017 - Happy New Year
Happy New Year everyone! Can you believe it's 2017?! Where the hell has the time gone? I'm one of the majority it seems that is very glad to be saying goodbye to 2016. For me it was probably one of the hardest years of my life with many setbacks and downfalls, which I'm so glad to be saying a proper goodbye to now and being able to continue moving forward with my life. I'm so ready to make 2017 a really great year, no matter what challenges I might be faced with. I'm so determined to get through them and learn from the more difficult moments, just like I have been able to within the past year. 

I haven't really set any 'life' goals as such, mainly because I don't want to put any pressure on myself at all and I want to set smaller goals as I go through the year. I think these are also much more achievable this year. Although mental health is my number one priority this year, as well as practicing regular self care and being kinder to myself. Anything or anyone that got down me down in 2016 or any negativity that was brought into my life is being left last year will not be returning for 2017. It feels so finally good to put myself first and think about my happiness rather than pleasing others.

I really hope you all have a wonderful 2017 and manage to achieve everything you have planned for yourself. I wish you all and your families the best success and good health for the next year. Thanks so much for showing your support to me in 2016. It literally means so much and I can't wait to see where my blog goes in 2017. I'd love to continue to grow and build a bigger community. I want to get to know lots more of you. So don't be afraid to get in touch. Let's make 2017 a great year together!

Best wishes everyone!

What do you have planned for 2017? What's been your highlights in 2016?

  1. Good luck on focusing on self-care and your mental health! I know those things must be difficult for you, but I'm sure you'll be okay if you take small steps at a time. I too need to focus on "me" time a bit more; I've never been so burnt out than I had been in 2016, and I don't want to be like that again in 2017.

  3. I'm all about self-care too. In fact, I dedicate 2017 to self-care & just being kinder & better to myself, which will probably make me a better person for everyone else as well. Here's to 2017! :]
