Going Forward

Happy New Year lovely readers! May 2016 bring you everything that you wish for and I hope we’ll get to know each other even more this year. 

I know a lot of bloggers already posted their goals for 2016 but I wanted to write a quick personal post about what I expect from 2016 and how I can look back on the positive of 2015.

I don’t really have any blog goals per se, but I’ll try to connect more with you and maybe get back to a posting schedule that makes more sense? It will be difficult as I’m gonna be super busy during the first few months of the year but hopefully I’ll find a suitable pace again.

Lessons learned from 2015

I chatted a bit about how I gained some self-confidence this year, but I changed jobs and that kind of freed me from my fear of speaking over the telephone. I think it may be the biggest benefit from this job and when I started visiting apartments four months ago, I was so much more comfortable making appointments and asking for information on the phone. 

I don’t know if that is due to growing up / becoming an adult, but I also care (a bit) less about what people think of me and my actions in general. I still have a long way to go and I think it’s also a matter of believing in myself a little more but I’m getting there. I’m more certain of my personal choices than ever, I know what I want and don’t want, what I like and don’t like. And this is not an easy thing for the Libra that’s in me.

On the less positive side of things, it’s been quite hard to keep in touch with people and that’s something I still have to work on.

I’ve also lacked confidence in my writing and photography skills regarding the blog (as well as motivation), which sometimes stopped me from taking the leap with the subjects I chose to write about.

Foreseeing 2016

If things go as planned, I’ll be likely to move out of my parents’ home in a few months – hence not having a lot of free time to write but I’m sure I’ll have a lot to share about this experience. I expect 2016 to be the year I finally become independent. There will be new routines and new challenges as well, and even if that may be scary, this is very exciting at the same time.

I also want to be more daring and have a lot more initiative. I love it when I start a new project and I’d like to be able to, at least, give them a chance and see them grow. Trying new things (in the cooking department for example) would also be great.

What are your plans for the new year?
