It feels like it’s been forever since I’ve been on this blog. I’m sorry for that.
So I wanted to write this post to say hello. A reintroduction. It’s 2018, it’s a new year, I just got bangs. It feels like the right time to do that. New year, new me?
2017 wasn’t the best year for me. It wasn’t terrible and it wasn’t spectacular but I struggled. I had a lot of questions that I didn’t know how to answer. I still have those questions. Where do I see myself in the next 5 years? The next year? The next 6 months? I don’t know. I don’t have those answers and that scares me.
I mean, no one wants to go through their days in a fog, feeling uninspired and low? I am so quick to tell my friends that they deserve more but why can’t I take that advice for myself? Why are we never able to take our own words of wisdom?
I want to take my own advice. This is going to be the year that I finally make some changes, this is going to be the year that I take care of my mental health and I start working on career goals. It’s time that I settled myself down and got to work. No more just talking about it.
So what are my goals? What is my resolution? The words that I plan to repeat to myself over and over again are simple. Take care.
Take care of my body with a proper diet and real food (three real meals a day, not just one meal of instant noodles and 10 cups of coffee!)
Take care of my mental health by learning what I need, what my boundaries are, talking to a doctor if I need to.
Take care of my creative and career pursuits by actually putting the work in.
Take care of my space by investing time and money into making the area around me, my room, my home, something that makes me feel inspired and comfortable.
I have big plans for the next year. I have hopes and dream and goals like everyone else but instead of focusing on helping everyone around me, it’s time that I help myself. It’s time that I starting thinking of myself as being deserving of these goals.
I want to post more on this blog, I want to work on really making this something to be proud of. I hope that you’re willing to come along on this ride with me.
So…hello. My name is Megan. I’ll be turning 26 soon and I live in a small town in the Canadian Rockies. I have always wanted to be writer and I love cats, tea, and good skin care.
