2014 - The year of all Years!

Hi Everyone, The past few years I have made some resolutions, but this year I want to do something a bit different. After breaking up with my partner and finding myself single for the first time in a long time I've started to get to know myself a lot better and I am slowly learning to love myself and find out what I want out of life and who I want to be. My journey at the moment is all about life changes, positivity, emotional and mental fulfilment and being happy - as my tattoo says - NO MATTER WHAT.
 
Essentially a lot of this:

 
Last years resolutions were certainly a challenge with a breakup but I still did pretty well:
 
1. Spend more quality time with the people that mean the most to me - I'd say I did this :)
2. Be more social - make at least one new friend - Done!
3. Sit another Insurance paper - and pass! - Unfortunately my work announced we are all being made redundant this year so I didn't do any more papers...
4. Excel at work and try for another promotion  - see above, unfortunately not gonna happen!
5. Travel - already booked a trip to Thailand in April and I want to do more getaways within NZ - Managed to do a bit of travel within NZ but not as much as I would have liked
6. Get to my goal weight and maintain, continue with gym and healthy eating - step it up a notch! - For some reason in 2013 I managed to understand food and my body a bit better and I have reached my goal weight, however I can still eat much more healthily & I want to tone up :)
7. Try new things - first up - Pole dancing me thinks! - I tried pole dancing, went to kickboxing and Burlesqercise classes! More to come this year
8. Do more pilates/yoga - Yup
9. Get a pet  - Nope :(
10. Buy a house/Save save save!!!   - Not gonna happen, life has changed now!
11. Stop spending so much and sell clothes I dont wear - Yes, created a Store
12. Still want to look at re-tuning my car and laser eye surgery but this depends on funds! - Sorted my car whoo hoo, laser eye surgery will have to wait, still want it though!
 
So due to a few changes in my life Things were a bit up and down last year, however I am determined to make 2014 the year that is all about me and my journey with myself - as cheesy as that sounds. I feel looking back that I was trapped in a way in my relationship. I now feel free, I have wanted to travel my whole life and I have settled for a few weeks here and there, but no more!! This year I am taking my redundancy and embarking on a journey to UK, Europe and Australia and I have NO IDEA what I'm doing, who I'll meet, how long I'll go for and where I will end up when I run out of money.....it is scary yet exciting and as much as it may be out of my comfort zone to jump into something so unknown I know I HAVE to do it.
 
I still have a long way to go before I am 100% happy and a lot to work through as everything is still very fresh and its taking me longer than I had hoped to get used to being single - and be happy being single. I hope you all follow along on my journey as I think 2014 will be a cracker!
 
Happy Tuesday Lovelies xxx

I am so glad to hear about your achievements in 2013! getting out of a relationship can be very difficult and takes a LOT of courage and constant inner strength. but I'm so glad you can see the freedom and positivity being single can also bring, and i hope you use it to your advantage to achieve even more great things in 2014 and the years to come.
