It’s my 25th birthday today! And what better way to celebrate a birthday than by talking about the things we are grateful for?

Practising gratitude is a great way to help you feel happier in life. I often forget to look on the more positive side and I’m sure many others do too. Life can get in the way and we forget to take a moment to appreciate everything we have.

However, today is my birthday so it’s the perfect time for me to reflect on all the things I’m grateful for.

Some Of My Weird Dreams That I Felt Like Sharing For No Real Reason

I have weird dreams. A lot of weird dreams. In fact, I can’t even think of the last time that one of my dreams wasn’t weird.

I love the idea of keeping a dream journal but I’m so lazy. So, I decided to share a couple of my weird dreams here on my blog instead.

My Relationship With Food And Why Diet Culture Sucks

All I can think about is food. I will go to the local corner shop and buy as much ‘bad’ foods as I can, then I’ll go home and eat until I physically can’t swallow anymore. I’m spending so much money on food yet I never feel fully satisfied.

My relationship with food is confusing. I have all the knowledge I need to know what foods to be eating more or less of, I know all about portion sizes and I even know about macros. However, when I see food, my mind pretends to know nothing and just grabs whatever it can.

As you can probably imagine, this kind of eating pattern has meant that I have gained quite a lot of weight. But I’ll explain more on that soon. Let me just take you back to the beginning quickly.

Things On My July To Do List

Starting a new month has always been a pretty exciting time for me. I love the idea that a new start is here and I get to reevaluate my life and my goals. Am I making progress on my goals? Are the goals I’ve set still relevant? If the answer is no, then I get to rethink the goals and see how I can keep improving myself and my life.

For those of you who read my last blog post, you’ll know that my life has been changing a lot. Since those changes, I’ve been thinking about my goals even more. So I figured that this would be a perfect time to write a post here all about my July goals.

I’m Going Through A Break Up

For those of you who have been following my life through this blog, then I have quite an update for you…

I’m going through a break up. My 5 year relationship is over.

So, Simon and I decided to end our relationship. It was quite a weird decision to make after five years but it was the best thing to do.

I’m not going to go into a crazy amount of detail about why we broke up or anything but I do want to fill you all in a little bit.

Confessions Of A Disney Addict

Disney is a huge part of my life. I love nothing more than visiting a Disney park, watching a Disney film or cuddling a Disney plush.

I recently realise that I don’t really talk about Disney a lot on this blog, even though it’s so important to me. It’s probably because there’s so many other amazing Disney bloggers out there who have much more interesting Disney related things to say than I do. However, if we didn’t do something because someone else might be better, then we would probably never get anything done at all. So, here I am, talking about Disney.

When I was trying to thing of what Disney themed post I could write, I remembered reading a few posts about a year ago from other bloggers. They were all sharing their Disney confessions. I figured that I would have a go at doing the same.

February 2020 Round-Up

February has come to an end. The second month of the century has been completed. I’m very thankful that it didn’t last as long as January did. I thought that January was never going to end.

February is a funny little month. I always feel like February is the month of change. I’m not sure if there’s a reason that I feel that way, I just do.

I figured that since February has ended, I would share some of the things that I’m ‘currently’ doing.

Christmas In Disneyland Paris 2019 ♡ Photo Diary

We arrived back from Disneyland Paris just a few days ago and I’m already completely missing it. I figured that I would share some photos of my trip because I’m so happy with my experience and I need to show you all.

We stayed in the Santa Fe hotel again. It’s one of out favourites and also happens to be the cheapest Disney hotel too.

Becoming The Best Version Of Myself

After writing my post about my life lessons, I realised that even though I have learnt a few life lessons throughout my life, there’s still more that I can improve on to make myself the best version of me that I can be.

I think it’s time that I start off a journey of becoming the best version of myself. I’m going to start by making lists of traits, habits and general things that I aspire to be. I thought what better place to share these lists than right here on my blog. By putting my thoughts into writing, it will be like taking them out of my very chaotic mind and it might even help to make me feel even more accountable. Hopefully sharing my goals and aspirations with you all will encourage me to do what I need to do to get to the places that I want to be.

Productivity:

  • I want to write more blog posts in advance so that when bloggers block hits, I have something to share with you all.
  • I want to make sure I keep my home, desk area and living spaces clean.
  • I want to stop procrastinating and get things done so I have time to relax when I need to in the evenings.
  • I want to stick to one journal system and actually use the journal to organise my days.
  • I want to start managing my monthly budgets better and start saving money.

Physical Health:

  • I want to lose five stone (70lbs) before my 24th birthday (November 2020).
  • I want to drink more water instead of lemonade and other fizzy drinks.
  • I want to stop eating cake as much.
  • I want to try to follow exercises from YouTube.
  • I want to make sure that I keep on top of my personal hygiene.

Mental health:

  • I want to try looking at situations more positively instead of worrying too much.
  • I want to show more gratitude to the people who are in my life.
  • I want to cut out the toxic people in my life and make friends to replace them.
  • I want to practise forgiveness for others to protect my own sanity.
  • I want to incorporate daily meditation into my life.
  • I want to set boundaries that will protect my own wellbeing.

Hobbies:

  • I want to start practising my drawing skills and painting more.
  • I want to actually learn to play my guitar instead of looking at it just sat in the corner.
  • I want to travel more and experience as many cultures as I can.
  • I want to rekindle my love for reading.
  • I want to start taking more photographs to capture precious life moments.

I’m hoping that now I have shared these goals with you, I’ll be able to keep up with this. It’s definitely going to be a hard journey and nothing will be accomplished overnight but it will be an interesting journey. I will probably focus on a small task per week or even longer so that I can create new habits and keep my thoughts organised.

If you lovely readers are also on a journey of self improvement, what’s on your list of things to improve on?
