2017 🤝 2018: Hello Goodbye | The Future of The Past

Blabbers, Updates January 3, 2018

Happy New Year of 2018!
It’s January 3rd as I’m writing this post. We are back to writing our Dissertations with a jam-packed January ahead of us. No time to think about slacking for at least two months is the realisation that my peers and I have been coming to. But hey, how’s your year been already? 😄

Last December I wrote a post about the whole ‘new year, new me’ craze and why I think it’s bullshitGive it a read if you’re tired of always aiming to re-build yourself and then failing to introduce this new person into your own life because that’s not the way to introduce change!

Reading back on that post I realise I was not the one to set goals for myself or my blog but it might be because I started this blog last November, making a total of… wait for it… FIVE blog posts 😂😬 Sounds a bit whack but I know I was never the type to have constant flows of inspiration, especially when it comes to writing. I also remember being quite lost as to what I wanted to blog about so with every post it would get more difficult, until the point where I’d stop writing completely.

Regardless of that, in 2017 I blogged for a total of 10 times! That’s less than a post per month. Again, weak. 😬 But I’m happy I started posting more poetry and slowly started to explore niches, towards the end of the year embracing the ones I truly liked.

With this thought, I want to promise myself to keep exploring and keep writing. 2017 was a difficult year for me and my (mental) health, it was a year of realisation and 2018 will be a year of self-re-discovery. I’ve started a journey ever since I went to my first counselling session in November and have been getting better ever since.

I know this year I will be focusing on me as an individual and since this blog is a big part of me, I will be spending more time on it. Even though most bloggers say this and it seems like we all have the same promise every year – I will blog more – but I want to first write more, then publish quality content. 💪🏻

So, let’s continue working on our December 31st, 2017 selves. I’m already three days in and it feels liberating not to worry about being perfect. Actually, I did my very first mistake of the year exactly on the 2nd of January 😂

Using the opportunity which is this post, I want to thank all of you who have been reading my blog. I want to think it’s only for me but I know it’s for you as well because it was my choice to make it public, just like it was your choice to read it.

I will keep a personal journal this year to improve myself but I will continue using this blog as an outlet for my art, creativity and learning. ❤️

Have a fantastic year! Make it one that it’s hard to forget and collect many stories to tell next year.

Well, well, well. If we all casually and collectively whip out our watches (or unlock our phone screens, I don’t know what I meant by watches either, is it the 21st century or not??) we will see that today is the 11th of January.

That is already 11 days of the New Year. The beautiful, promising 2017! And if we look at this post’s title, what conclusions can we make?

Guide to 2017: Continue The Game, Don’t Start Over (+Printable For Your Planner!)

Blabbers December 19, 2016

Would you look at the calendar, it’s December already (actually, we’ve reached the halfway point, uh-oh!) This means exactly two things:

  1. 2016 is coming to an end and I’d say it’s about time for this;
  2. 2017 is approaching with such speed that I hope you’re wearing seatbelts;

In order not to crash into 2017 completely unprepared and shaken (yes, I just used the shook meme), do some planning in advance and get the most out of your year! Doesn’t that sound overwhelming, though?  Many people look at New Year’s Eve as some kind of miraculous gateway to a better life – so many empty promises get thrown into the night’s sky just to satisfy the craving of a better year. But how many examples are there that it will not be like that at all? (If we were to be honest ’round here, how long did your New Year promises last? Mine did for about a couple of months with many downfalls already in the first one. Yikes.)
