We are over 2 weeks into 2018 and I’ve been ill quite a bit, however it has given me a chance a chance to think about the habits that I want to stop this year, I’m beyond determined to do my thing, to achieve this year & be the best person I can be. Not only that I’ve noticed that these bad habits are having an impact on my physical and mental health, so stopping these things will ultimately make me feel so much better and I know this year will get better.
I’m actually the worst at avoiding things, I mean if there was a prize for the person who would try to avoid something the most it would be me. I have my to do list going, I attempt to be one of those people who are ridiculously organised but sometimes it literally doesn’t happen. I look at it and like, not today, maybe tomorrow and it just continues to roll. I’m definitely trying to be a more organised person and the go getter kind of person.
Comparing myself to others
It’s January and I feel like there is a ridiculous amount of pressure on people to diet, I mean I am plus size, people see me and I have even heard people say I need to go on a diet or the old favourite of “who ate all the pies” I mean seriously? My self worth isn’t defined by the size on my clothes, when I see others who are different sizes, they’re gorgeous! I mean inside and out, comparison is the thief of joy, I am 100% happy with my life, with my body, bigger or smaller, I’ll be happy as long as I am healthy.
Caring what others think
This kind of follows on from the last one, I mean when I hear something bad, I tend to brood on it and take it very much to heart, I’m that kind of person that wears her heart on her sleeve. I mean I might come across kind of tough at first, but do you know what I’m quite soft when it comes to it. If people have an opinion, let them have it, but if I don’t care about them, why am I worried about their opinion? The people who matter and love me, those are the opinions that are important to me.
Overthinking so much
We all have those nights right? We lay there and overthink every situation that could ever happen in our lives? It gets us stuck on the rabbit wheel of life, it can sometimes stop me from doing the things that I want to do because of that, and in reality it shouldn’t, but we live and learn right? Now is the time that I get off that annoying rabbit wheel and tell my mind to give it a rest and do what makes me happy!
Stop trying to achieve perfection
I’m a bit of a perfectionist, I try to work so hard at everything in my life, whether it is my blog, my home life, my marriage, basically anything that walks into my life. Nothing in life is ever perfect, in fact it is the imperfections in our lives that make it interesting! Perfection isn’t the be all and end all of everything, happiness is much more important than perfection!
