2016

HAPPY NEW YEAR! 

2015 was hard, I guess. I mean it wasn't the worst year I've ever had, but it's up there on the list. I'm tired of my life being like this and I really, really want 2016 to be better. But I've learnt that I can't just expect it to be my year, have to make it my year. I want to help myself and just be genuinely happy. For a long time, I guess you could say I just expected things to become better all by themselves but I now know they won't and I have to do that myself, yknow? 

Essentially what I'm getting at is that I'm super determined to make 2016 my year, so I thought I'd share my New Year's Resolutions with you. And I know some people think New Year's Resolutions are dumb and think things like 'why wait until the New Year to change your life?' etc, and for me personally, it's because I feel more motivated to do so, I guess?  


Care less about what people think of me. I care too much about what people think and it holds me back too much. I need to do what I want to do, say, wear, etc, without letting other people's opinions affect me because at the end of the day (this is going to be a cliche) it's my life and I need to live it for myself. 

Be more consistent with my blog. Blogging is something I really love doing and I just want to be more consistent. I've wanted a camera for years because I also really love photography and I've saved up and finally bought myself one - I got the Canon 1200D and it's made me really excited to start doing more blog posts. I've never had an upload day before but I've decided that I'm going to post on Thursdays. I may also post twice a week, but I'll always tweet about it, so if you want you can follow my twitter here - @autumnntaste

Go on adventures and make memories.  Truth time: I don't get out much, at all. I'm home/online schooled, I have anxiety and basically it's really hard for me. This year I just want to do things you know, I really want to try and control and deal with my anxiety, because like I said I just can't live like this anymore, I'm tired of it and I just want to live and have fun and make memories, yknow? 

Those three are my, I guess you could say main resolutions? I have a few others too, but I won't expand on those because I don't want to bore you to death haha. 

Appreciate the small things. 

Love myself and be confident. 

Enjoy life and be happy. 

Make more friends. 

Donate my hair. 

Be healthier. 

Say yes to more things and step out of my comfort zone. 

I think these are do-able, I mean I hope they are haha. I hope you've had a great start to the year and leave some of your New Year's Resolutions in the comments. Thank you for reading!

Love, 
Shannon
