What’s changed?

So it feels like we’ve only just started  2016, and we’re already into June! JUNE!! What’s going on?? I swear the days go faster as you get older (yes I’m only 22)…anyway this blog is basically a catch up on what’s new and what’s changed with me since we hit 1/1/16.

Okay so let’s get the boring stuff out of the way. Health wise…I’ve put on weight 👎🏼 I’m drinking more water which is good. But I’m also eating a lot more. I get bored! When I’m bored I eat. Or that could just be a excuse…I do love food. Also sadly I don’t want to ‘work out’, I have no need, no desire. But thankfully I am trying to embrace my more flabby current body, as in reality this is probably the best it’s going to look during my life…unless I start going to the gym of course.

Next on the agenda is Education. I mentioned in a different blog that I’d done a photography course with Shaw academy. I really enjoyed this and went on to do two other courses, which were good…but now I don’t know what to do with myself. I don’t see the point in doing anymore courses until I decide which direction I want to go in. I really need to make a choice about what I’m doing with my life, but right now I guess my minds on other things.

One thing I know I’m doing right is travelling. I’m trying to travel as much as I can this year while working alongside. When I’m here I just feel lost, as if I have no purpose. Everything just seems so mundane and boring. I seem to have twitchy feet as they say. I just need to get out and get moving as much as possible right now. It’s awkward in a sense…

The final thing to really cover in this is relationships I guess. I realised the other day that I’ve been single for just over a year now. In some ways it’s great, no one depending on me. Time to myself whenever I want etc etc. But at the same time I really need to get out there a bit. I feel like I’m becoming a social recluse which I hate! So I’ve started dating. Ahh it’s just confusing to be completely honest…but at least I’m trying. 😬

Daily Blessings

Now I know this is intended as an insightful and possibly inspiring blog but I was stuck with what to write for this blog, and even which direction to go in. So like I do with everything else…I took to google to get some ideas. I then stumbled across an extremely ‘uplifting’ list of blessings we have in life. On this list was things like wisdom, protection, purpose, and free will…to which on this one I read it as ‘free wiFi‘ so in a freak turn of events I’m going to start off with that twist.

  1. Free WiFi – I know this is shallow in someway when we look around at the world at what we’ve been given and the life we have, but I am grateful for free WiFi. I mean firstly because I have a blog…I mean I can’t go a day without checking my stats to see what countries have looked at me. Another good reason for free WiFi is, if what I’m planning takes off (going travelling), I need wi-fi to be able to contact my family without spending money.
  2. Freedom – This ones a bit more profound. I am grateful for freedom. I’m grateful for the freedom to be able to do what I want, wear what I want, and be who I want. There’s so much freedom we have in this life that we don’t realise when compared to others…it’s crazy to think about it.
  3. Nature – It’s a beautiful world we have, and we waste it by being stuck inside doing pointless daily tasks. Theres so much to experience and learn, and it’s right outside our doors.
  4. Having a voice – Everyone has their own opinions, and they have a choice to voice it in a number of ways. Whether people listen or not, the chance of one person listening and it influencing them in some way is massive. So be brave, and maybe even take a stand.
  5. Having support – there’s a lot that happens in life, but even if there’s only one person to offer support it’s normally gratefully accepted. Especially through tough times and even if it’s by doing the smallest act of kindness…it goes a long way…
