What I’m looking forward to in 2018…

This year is a big one for me.

This is the year I will become a wife, I will be married to my best friend so I’m definitely looking forward to that.

I’m also looking forward to our American adventure for our honeymoon.

Those things though are inevitable and of course I’m going to be looking forward to them, along with all the things that come after it like changing my name everywhere and receiving our photos back to relive the best day of our lives… I might even have an after-the-wedding hen party for all my favourite girlies to meet up again to drag it out even further so as not to get the wedding blues!

I’m looking forward to going back to work. I’ve had three weeks off and whilst it’s been lovely to relax and reflect, I can’t wait to get back into a routine and remember what day it is each morning. Plus, it will make the weeks fly by and I’ll be Mrs C quicker than I can blink.

I’m looking forward to new challenges and responsibilities at work. Whilst I’ll have only been there for six short months, I’ve made my mark and want to continue to do so, set goals and smash the sugar out of them.

I’m looking forward to being a healthier version of me. I love fruit and vegetables but never really eat enough of them… why? Considering I actually really enjoy their flavour I should be getting more in my diet so I intend on doing so, maintaining a healthier diet throughout the year as well as hitting the gym at least five times a week when I can.

I’m looking forward to spending more time with friends and family. I want to make every effort to visit and meet up with everyone who’s made an impact on my life, the people who make me happy and motivate me to be a better person.

I’m looking forward to leaving the negativity behind, be that in people, in belongings and in my own mind. May my overthinking and low self-esteem be a thing I can leave behind in 2017 and see a more confident woman who doesn’t worry so much in the mirror each morning this year.

I’m looking forward to where my blog will take me. I plan to put so much more effort into it this year now I’ve found my ‘groove’ – it’s a tough little thing this blogging – I knew it was never going to be easy but after almost three years, I think it’s where I want it to be and I’m comfortable with the direction it’s going.

I’m looking forward to turning 27. That feels like a nice age in life. I think I’ll look at myself as a 27 year old and really appreciate where I’m at in life. I’ll have a job I love which brings home the bacon and can afford me nice things and nice holidays and a beautiful home. I’ll have a husband who can keep me safe and shower me with love daily and be there on the dark days with a cup of coffee and a Netflix binge. I’ll have the best group of friends a girl could ever wish for on speed dial for coffee catch ups and cheeky Nando’s (man I love a cheeky Nando’s!) and I’ll be closer than ever with my family.

I’m looking forward to being a ‘proper auntie’ and ‘borrowing’ my niece for days out and play time whilst I have no kids of my own. I absolutely adore her and want to be in her life as much as possible. Plus, we’re god parents now so she’s got to like us whether she wants to or not!

I’m looking forward to the adventures this year will bring. Last year was pretty awesome but this one will be even better.

Wishing you a happy new year for 2018. What are you looking forward to this year?
