Maybe I'll try this new year, new me thing...

It's 2014! Incase you haven't realized, even though we're just about 20 days into it. In my post 2013 I spoke about some of the things I've accomplished last year, which I am superbly proud of but that doesn't mean I don't have a nice list of resolutions to set for myself this year! To be honest, I'm a little intimated writing these all out because then I feel barred to them. And, if (or when) I fail I'm going to have to do the post of shame at the top of 2015 telling you all. Which...would, kinda suck.

So here's my list.

  • Go somewhere I've never been before. 
  • Be less afraid of "going out" and "partying" 
  • Raise myself esteem, and stop talking & looking down on myself so much. 
  • Say yes to things I'd normally say no too. 
  • Stop avoiding people. 
  • Get 100 downloads on my next self-published work. 
  • Kiss someone this new year's (a girl can dream right) 
  • Make better videos for my Youtube Channel. 
  • Write better blog posts on here. 
  • Get too 100 GFC followers on this blog. 
  • Be less of afraid of being blunt about what I want/don't want/like/don't like. 
  • Being less ashamed of who I am. 
  • Drink more water. 
  • Depend less on caffeine to make me feel more awake..and you know..actually just sleep more to feel more awake. 
  • Go to church more. 
  • Get a job, and save lots to hopefully be able to travel a lot more in 2015 & onwards. 
  • Go to more music festivals and concerts. 
  • Stop forcing myself to do things I don't like doing to please people I don't even like. 
  • Be more appreciative of what I already have.
  • Be more open. 
  • Be braver.
Do you have any resolutions, list them in the comments, I'd love to know!

  2. These are great resolutions and boy, do I relate to some of them! I've got the drink more water and less caffeine part down. I'd love to go to Coachella. I tried following your blog via GFC but for some reason it's not allowing me to. Strange as I just followed some other peeps and it let me. Maybe there's something up with your code?! I'll try again later. :)

  7. Girl, your posts and your enthusiasm are lovely. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and leaving such a beautiful comment. You're amazing.

    Resolutions are always so hard to keep. I think making month by month resolutions may be easier to keep because otherwise I forget about them and then I fail by default.

  19. Saving money for travel--a great goal! We can help you do it, too. We're a shaving company called Dorco, and while you may not have heard of us yet, we're changing the way razors are done in the U.S. and Canada. Our razors cost up to 70% less than the big guys'. But that doesn't mean you have to sacrifice the quality of your shave. Our razors are crafted with the highest quality blades and moisturizing strips containing aloe and vitamin E to soothe and hydrate even the most sensitive skin. Read what others think about our products and our prices at Thanks for the great post; we wish you all the best in accomplishing these!

  20. Those are some great resolutions. I've been cutting down on caffeine for the past few months, it's not as bad as it seems. I did have a serious craving for all the festive drinks at Starbucks/Costa over Christmas though.

  21. Great goals!

    I've tagged you for a Liebster Award: Hope you don't mind! I look forward to reading your post if you write one! x

  22. Hi Leah thanks a lot for visiting my blog and for the sweet thoughts. Although I did not have resolutions this year but I did try to savings plan, buy less choose well. Your resolutions are so doable and I want to know if you follow them through. Stay in touch.


  23. These are all fantastic- especially the one about being less ashamed of yourself. The sooner we realize we are all different and all strange, the sooner we learn to accept ourselves, and then eventually we find we can love ourselves. It should be a journey everyone undertakes! For loving yourself opens you up to loving other people with more of your heart and creates more goodness in our wonderful world.
