Five things to do in 2014 - Gemma's turn!

Hi guys, as you probably read in Laura's things to do post, she suggested I do the same, miss bossy boots! (just kidding LD!). I really have loved Laura's New Year's posts, I myself have found them so inspirational. So when I seen her suggestion to do the same I couldn't wait to get writing. I had a great 2013  but I want to make 2014 the best year ever! So here we go...

1) Be happy and stop worrying. In 2013 I panicked over everything and bet myself down a lot. That year was definitely a year that I drifted and lost people who were very good friends which led to a lot of sadness and sleepless nights. I think in 2014 I have to learn that things like this happen and I can't try and fix everything. Deep thought to start this off right?

2) Keep up with exercising and eating well. In 2013 I dropped from a size 8/10 (which I know is not a big size) to a size 6. This was purely due to the fact I wanted to be healthier. After being a chubby kid in primary dealing with constant bullying about my size it feels good to be a shape I am happy with! I am desperately hoping to keep it up!

3) In slight contradiction with my last point - spend more time with my family and friends. I feel like in 2013 I was always working/doing uni work/exercising and never seen my loved ones as much as I would have liked. This year I have to realise that they won't always be there and make all of my time with them. And have a little me time thrown in as well!

4) Travel more. I have always had the travel bug. Now I think 2015 will be the ultimate travel year as I will have graduated uni and my boyfriend and I are planning a trip to Dubai and Thailand (must make this happen!!!) But I still wanted to make a dent in the world this year.

5) Complete at least one thing on my bucket list. When I was about 13 I started a bucket list. Odd age to start it I know but I know how short life is and it shouldn't be wasted so I made one. In 2013 I managed to complete a lot of my bucket list but every year I'd like to do at least one thing on it.

6) I know it is five points but I have another one, same as Laura, get a tattoo! I already have three but there is one I have been hoping to get for about a year.

So that is the things I wanted to achieve in 2014. I can't wait to check in with this, this time next year to see if I have managed any of them.

Like Laura said let us know if you have any goals for 2014!




I just thought I'd include this though I can't believe I am putting it on the internet for everyone to see. This is a picture from my 18th in October 2011 before I started to go to the gym and eat better. The sparkly dress was a size 8 but I definitely don't look like it. The black dress is New Year's Eve 2013. A size 6. Chuffed with myself and all my hard work.



Until next time guys,
