They always say that you're never going to achieve anything if you live your life within your comfort zone. And as a major worrier about anything and everything, if I lived within my comfort zone on a daily basis then, well, I wouldn't get much further than the end of my bed. But that's beside the point.
Really pushing ourselves is where our strength lies. Doing things that we never thought we'd be brave enough to do is how we create our favourite memories. Some of the best things that have happened (and that I've bought... whoops.) this year have been because I've pushed myself to not listen to the, *ahem*, more sensible voices in my head, and to think 'do you know what, screw this, let's do it.'
So in the next few weeks, that's exactly what I'm going to do. Screw it, and do it.
I'm not entirely sure how things are going to pan out, and if I'm honest, what I'm planning is probably the least sensible thing I've ever done. BUT I know that it's what (I hope) is going to make me happy.
2016 is going to be the year where I start doing things for me. Things that I want to do, and not things that I think the world expects me to do.
While I'm super nervous about what could happen if everything goes, um, well, tits up, I'm so so excited to get started with the new year. I'm sticking to what I wrote in this post about not making any new years resolutions, but it doesn't mean I'm not looking forward to the new start that January 1st will bring.
Here's to the new year guys!
