As almost every single post and Facebook status will say, new year new changes!
I have had such an incredible year – I have been living in Sydney and met some of the most incredible people I have known, I have travelled throughout Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and the USA and then I came back home to my friends, got straight back into work, met even more new friends and have started to re-settle down again.
Although, I have had such a great year, I have also had quite a tough time running alongside too. I have been ‘diagnosed’ with Anxiety and I hate it. As you might have read from my previous posts about this, I never realised that I had it before, I thought that I was just a constant worrier and got overly-stressed over any little thing and it was normal. Things just got worse and worse, up to the point that I had to go to the doctors to ask about this and seek for help. You can read more about this in my previous blog posts.
But, moving back onto the subject of my New Years changes: I want to overcome my anxiety (it’s not as easy as it sounds) but I want to at least make some progress, learn to not worry as much about the littlest of things in life, not take comments to heart and not listen to what people think of me as a person (most of the time, they don’t think anything but I just assume – hey, anxiety for you!).
I have always been a strong person and I have felt myself drop in this, the last 6 months. I want to become a really strong person again and just rebuild myself and my confidence. I want to be able to control my thoughts and push back the thoughts that I don’t need to be worrying about.
I am hoping to have a fresh, new start and really get stuck into my career in the next year. I am planning on moving from home again, possibly get a part time job for the time being so that I can concentrate on learning new skills so that I can become more confident within the Web Development industry.
So, they are my goals for the year. They aren’t exactly the cliched ‘resolutions’ but these are my main goals and what is relevant to me: be happy, grow and develop my skills and become a stronger person.
