As promised, im finally pullig myself together to write something for you all today. Most of you probably do not know that I recently turned 18. I sarted this blog when I was 16 and back then, I was severely lacking in confidence and needed an outlet for my anger, frustrations and an opportunitiy to be heard. I feel I've changed a lot since then, entering a new phase of progression. Some of my goals I set out for myself since the beginning of this blog are yet to be accomplished. On top of this, there are new things I have discovered about myself . This year, I plan to enoy life to the fullest and to completely appreciate the life I am living.
Last night, after a long weekend of birthday celebrations, I finally caught a moment to think about what I want for myself this year. Usually when I do this, I set my self goals, but this time I'm making promises.  Promises to me,are more secure, it seems wrong to break a promise to yourself. Let me know some of the promises or goals you have made for yourself in the comments below!

1. I promise to be kinder to me
My teenage years , so far have been filled with a lot of self- hate, self-blame and a lack of appreciation for self. This year, I want to look at myself and actually appreciate who I have become.
2. I promise to make real friends
Recently I had a situation when I thought my friends would be there for me but they let me down. This year, I plan to develop secure and positive friendships ith people whoo actually appreciate me.

3. I promise to make positive changes to my appearance
Throughout my life , my appearance has obviously changed a lot. However, a label that has stuck throughout these changes was one that has had a profound impact on my self image...FAT. From a young age I quickly learned that this was a negative label , something undesirable in our appearances. This lead me to loathe my body. Sometimes I would be too disgusted by my appearance to look at myself. Recently, I have begun to see so much more beauty in myself to the extent that I actually feel happy in my body for the first time in years. This year, I promise to make myself healthy, exercise and basically glow from inside- out. Im joining the gym tomorrow and I will hopefully start logging my weight loss journey on my blog as a new series!

4. I promise to embrace my new found confidence
I will continue putting myself in new situations and becoming more and more confident and happy.

5.I promise to start a business/ empire
This year I am going to uni to study Social Work. However, one of my highest ambitions is to start a business. I plan to use my writing skills to start something very special. I won't let you know too much yet but hopefully the service will be available to you guys soon!

6. I promise to change my attitude to learning
Exams have made me hate education and learning and I would love to once again see the positives that learning actually has.

7. I promise to have the best first year at Uni
University is a chance for me to start a fresh, with new people, friends and so much more. I will be about 4 hours away from my home... I'm nervous but excited!

8. I promise to create lasting memories

9. I promise to discover my talent
I've always wanted to get into dance and music. Many people usually start things like that at a young age but since I didn't have the opportunity to do these things then, I feel it is the perfect time to do them now.

10. I promise to discover a new emotion...

11. I promise to invest in myself
I often put others before me and forget to put time and money into my own well being. I want to start taking care of myself.

12.I promise to show my feelings more
Besides through this blog, I neer discuss my feelings ith anyone. I'm actually quite a closed person. I promise to be more open.

13. I promise to get back into writing
I want to blog more, start a business based on my writng , write a book, write for magazines, write short stories and collaborate with other writers. Writing is one of my biggest passions in life.

14. I promise to get back into reading
My biggest childhood hobby, I don't want to loose that with age.

15. I promise to become more creative

16. I promise to enjoy my final teenage years
They say these are the best times of your life and this year will be no exception.

17. I promise to stop the negativity
A new year, a new mindset.

18. I promise to regret nothing
