I can't quite believe that 2013 is almost over. This time last year, I could not stop feeling disappointed with how 2012 went for me and wanted to make sure that 2013 was much more successful and enjoyable than 2012. I wanted to be able to reflect on 2013 and be proud of what I had accomplished. I wanted to be able to say that I had fun and felt more comfortable in my own skin. I posted here about what my 2013 new years resolutions were. Although I didn't achieve all of them or only achieved them for a limited amount of time, I'm still proud of how far I've come over the last year and can safely say that 2013 was a good year...
here. On Olivia's birthday we went to Chessington World of Adventures where I relived my childhood and went on a cool, safari ride. I went to the Lake District with my family where I sat with Noddy. I walked around most of the lakes and my sister and I posed for a picture...prom style. I passed all my GCSEs and surprised myself with amazing grades. Olivia, Amy, Alice and I celebrated our results by going out for a meal. I travelled down to Devon again and took a picture of the famous Crapstone which is just up the road from my families' house.
2013 was a good year. I had fun. I achieved lots. But it wasn't an easy year. I had a couple of rocky patches along the way and I stressed about my GCSE exams and that's okay. Try not to focus on the negatives. Focus on the positives and you'll feel much better when reflecting on 2013.
Although its a little bit daunting heading into a new year, its a fresh start and a clean slate. I already have some things to look forward to next year. So whenever I next feel down I'm just going to think of those fun things lined up and I advise you to do the same.
My new years resolutions for 2014 -
- Blog more often
- Get a gym membership
- Eat healthier
- Do more chores around the house
- Get a job
- Study hard
- FOCUS ON THE POSITIVES AND BE HAPPY
I wish you all the best for 2014 and hope it's a good year for you. Let me know in the comments your highlights of 2013 and your new years resolutions for 2014.
