Thoughts & Hopes For 2016!

By Mellissa McGrath - 18:51:00

First off I just want to say HAPPY NEW YEAR! We are now in 2016 - which is crazy (let's hope this year slows down a little bit) but really exciting.

There's always something refreshing about entering a new year, it almost feels like a fresh start and clean slate where you can start over! I found 2015 a really good year for me, loads of amazing memories, travelling to New York and Florida and many other little getaways, graduating from University and overall spending good and quality time with the people I love...

I feel really positive and excited going into 2016 and just like this time last year I've made a little list of things I would like to do/achieve this year to make this another brilliant year. Here are a few of the things...

Be Healthy - Of course! This is on most people's lists in the new year, after over indulging over the festive period it leaves you a little off track. So I am really excited to get back to healthy good food and push my fitness even more this year! But aside from the physical health, I hope to be healthy and happy - as well as everyone else around me - that's the main thing to look after ourselves and be around the people that uplift you and make you the best version of yourself!

Travel - This is a really exciting part of this year, in the summer me and James are planning on travelling around America, visiting all the places I've dreamed of going and experience another part of the world I love (having seen a teeny little part of it) so I can't wait to explore more, now it just takes a lot more saving and plan, plan, planning.

 Music - This has always been a passion of mine and over the past few years my love for country music has grown into something I couldn't live without. Having started learning guitar last year (which was one ticked off my list) I love everything about playing, singing and writing music more than I ever have. I have always performed and loved music, but now I feel like I can finally learn more, be myself and concentrate on the music that makes me happy and I want to do more of it! I received a new beautiful semi-acoustic guitar for Christmas so I will definitely be putting it to use and creating new and exciting things this new year.

Future - This word has always scared me and after school, sixth form and University it still scares me - the problem is after all the hard work, when do you ever know what you want to spend the rest of your life doing? This year I'm going to stop worrying on specifics and stressing over what I want to do for the rest of my life. There is a lot of things I would love to do as a career and achieve in my life but by focusing on the things I love and I'm passionate about will hopefully lead me to answers and achieving my goals (as cheesy as it sounds). This year I'm going to work hard, look for opportunities and experience - as well as have fun and make the most of everything I do.

But aside from all this - I want to spend each day appreciating what I have, enjoy every moment and keep reminding myself that life is short and we should be grateful for each day we have and the people around us!

We only have one life - let's live it :)
