I think a lot of the time I’m too scared to do things or take opportunities because before I’ve even had the chance to do anything I presume I’ll fail. I really want to get rid of this mentality and do more of the things that terrify me, then at least I can say I’ve done it! One thing in particular I’d like to pluck up the courage to do this year is a charity skydive, and now that I’m putting it in writing (well, text!) hopefully I won’t chicken out! I’m not scared of heights so why the thought of jumping out of a plane terrifies me I don’t know – we’ll see what happens with that!
I mentioned this in my end of year blog but I’d like to document more of my life through photos and this little blog. I used to write in diaries all the time as a child and now it feels like I’m not doing enough of that. I want to take lots of photographs, write many blog posts and fill up notebooks in 2015!
This one is pretty self-explanatory really. I want to push myself much more with photography and videography and create pieces that I’m really proud of. Also having learnt calligraphy in December I want to improve my skills with that!
In 2014 I went through hell with how I felt on a daily basis with grief, mild depression and anxiety and it’s been horrible, but the worst thing about it all was not feeling comfortable with admitting that that was how I felt. So in the new year where I’ll go through all the hard anniversaries surrounding my mother’s death once again I’m going to try and be honest about how I feel if people ask, and try to seek help when I need it (something I don’t often do – very stubborn!).
I know this is a very broad one but perhaps it’s the one most people overlook. Whatever happens in the next year as long as I’m happy and healthy, I can’t complain can I? Really that’s most important thing in life. I’m going to try and stress less, not sweat about the small stuff and just be grateful for what I have.
So that’s my little bucket list for 2015! What are your goals for the year?
