The last work outfit of 2011; New Look skirt, Primark jumper and Bertie shoes c/o Sarenza.
It’s crazy to think that this time last year I hadn’t even started working. When I started my job I didn’t expect to fall in love with it as much as I have, and I never imagined that I could have progressed so much. 2012 looks to be a promising year work wise and I couldn’t be more excited, or grateful.
On the whole 2011 has been one of my better years; nothing could quite top the nightmare that was 2010. Things aren’t quite where I want them to be, I have ground to catch up on in my recovery and things to be worked upon in general; but isn’t that the point in life? To look back and progress. If it were perfect straight off the bat, what would we have to do, except merely exist?
I spent so long hoping for the perfect life, it wasn’t until I stopped striving for the perfection and realised that no one else held the same expectations of me that I held for myself that things fell in the place. I was suddenly able to relax, meet new people without second guessing every move and allow myself to just go with the flow.
We are our own worst critics. In 2012 I vow to take deep breaths and just have fun.
My tools for the new year? Well, my filofax to keep me organised and make sure I turn up to where I need to be, and my well being journal from paperchase; with sections for all areas of life, I’m hoping I can use this as a positive tool for taking care of me.
What have you learnt this year?
What are your new year essentials?
If your out partying tonight, HAVE FUN! If like me, you are planning on a night in (with a high chance of being asleep before midnight) then…enjoy that too!
