I don't know about anyone else but I had been looking forward to leaving 2014 in the past for a good while now, and I now feel some sort of relief that I'm leaving all the bad things that happened last year behind and attempting to start a fresh. 2014 was huge disappointment for reasons I daren't go into and I refuse to let 2015 be anything less than an improvement. I'm not suggesting all this 'new year new me' but I definitely need to make changes in my life to benefit myself and make this year a good one, so here are my 2015 resolutions!
1) Be happy
Probably a generic resolution but one which I definitely need to focus on, with 2014 being so crap I found myself consumed with constant negative thoughts and emotions for about 3 months straight. I need to start looking for the positives in every situation and remember that everything that happens for a reason and that things do get better so there's no point sitting around feeling sorry for yourself. However I need to not forget that it's okay to cry sometimes and be sad but to make sure I don't get upset over that particular thing again.
2) Stop being a complete psycho
I need to stop being so paranoid about whom he may or may not be talking to and need to quit finding out who she is in 0.5 seconds and ending up stalking her facebook only to learn every single thing about the girl. I need to stop looking at his twitter profile and scanning who's liked her instagram photos and secretly hoping his name comes up so that I have a reason to be angry even though we are not are in a relationship and therefore should not be my problem. I need to stop checking when he was last online on Whatsapp to work out whether he's messaging another girl and if and when he may choose to text me over her when it has absolutely nothing to do with me and I this would probably help me to enjoy life a bit more and maybe I would be in a relationship if I learnt to not be that jealous psycho girl.
This seems to pop up in my resolutions every year. I usually end up going on a mad workout phase where I'm doing sit ups and what not each night until I see results and then give up. This therefore creates a circle and I need to learn to stick at it and instead of wasting an hour each evening stalking girls on instagram, which seems to have become a daily activity, I need to get up and do some exercise.
4) Learn to save money
The prospect of turning 18 this year and officially becoming an adult is extremely terrifying to me. I am in no way independant and cannot even book a hairdressing appointment without my mum telling me exactly what I have to say. So with turning 18 comes responsibility and this means I need to sort out my finances. I am terrible with money and cannot help but go on crazy online shops and buying clothes that just hang in my wardrobe never to be seen again. I need spend less on expensive makeup and save for more important and necessary things in my life. Not to say I still won't buy a MAC lip liner just because it's rumoured that Kylie Jenner uses it...
5) Become a better person
2014 taught me a lot about myself, such as I am a lot stronger than I thought I was, it helped me to change myself and I've felt myself mature and become a better person. In 2015 I want to continue this and improve myself as an individual.
