Old Year Resolutions?!


HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! January 2015. Time flies. Seems like January 2014 was last month! Did you guys start your new year’s resolution yet? I’ve never been much of a person for new year’s resolutions. I feel like if you really want to make a change, you’ve got to start asap; don’t save it for jan 1st. Therefor, I won’t be sharing new year’s resolutions today. Simply because I don’t have any. However, as I’m working on positive thoughts and positive actions, I’d like to do the reverse, a positive look-back instead of look-forward: Today, I’d like to share 5 things in 2014 I’m most proud of with you guys. 

1 A beautiful apartment

Around february me and my boyfriend moved into our beautiful apartment. We have amazing big windows, plenty of space, an open kitchen and a beautiful balcony. Although it might not be a perfect apartment, it’s perfect for the two of us. It’s a whole lot more cleaning (le sigh..xD) than the tiny student apartment I had before, but I love this place so much and I feel truly blessed to get to live here. Sometimes I’m still amazed about our own space.

2 Seoul, South-Korea

I’ve been wanting to visit Seoul (South Korea) for years and years. This year, I decided to be spontaneous and book a flight with my boyfriend. Also, this was the first vacation I didn’t really plan ahead! I’m usually super stressed during vacations because planning puts me on a tight schedule. As everything usually is off schedule on vacations, I would be stressed out like crazy. However, not this time! If you knew me in person, you’d know this is a very big accomplishment for me because my anxiety disorder makes me a major control freak. In Seoul, I lost control (in a good way). And guess what? This was the most relaxing vacation I’ve ever had.

3 Degree and a job

After 6 years of hard work, I acquired my Master’s degree in Pharmacy. It was a rocky road, but I made it! I’m so proud I finished it without delay. Additionally I got a great job after I just graduated. It’s like it was meant to be 🙂

4 Me

After a difficult time, I finally realized I should spend more time on me. In 2014, I put myself on the first place more often and I learnt it’s okay to say no sometimes. It’s okay that I wasn’t able to help everyone every time they needed it, because sometimes I needed to help myself before I could help those around me. And it’s okay to say no if I don’t feel like doing something. I’m still no star at me-time and I still have a nagging feeling when I say no, but we’re getting there 😉

5 Writing Temptations

Last but not least, my blog. After my summer break, I started to blog more seriously. And this time, there was a balance between blogging, personal life and career. Nowadays, I post 3 times a week and loving it. Additionally, I’m noticing an increase in traffic. Since September the amount of visitors has been growing and growing. I’m not a big fish (yet), but that’s okay. I love the way things are at the moment and I’m proud that Writing Temptations is consistent, while I still love what I do. It’s working for me. 

So these were 5 of my accomplishments in 2014. Life couldn’t get better ^^ I’d like you guys to do the same for your 2014. Keep the list to yourself or share it with me. [I’d love to see it!] Either way, be proud of yourself. You’ve come a long way m’dears ♥
