Turning 23, and what I hope it will bring.

On August 18th I turned 23. I'm still in shock to be honest, I feel like the last couple of years have absolutely flown by. As always I love to reflect on the past year and look forward to the new one. So Here's that post.

I'm definitely not where I thought I would be at 23, but if life has taught me anything up to now, it's that everything happens for a reason. I have everything I need right now, and I should be happy enough with that. With a pretty sudden change in job (and mental health) last year I took a big step back from my small business and focused on myself for a while. I soon realised that the part time job I had moved to just wasn't enough anymore so opted to take up a full time position there instead. This has been great as I've not had to be so strict with my spending, and I don't feel guilty eating out with friends, or spending money on petrol to visit Norfolk for the day.

Speaking of my job, I've always been someone that is very open and honest about how I feel, and I'm very open with my bosses if I feel unhappy or unsettled within my current working routine. Something that I know I want to work on is getting myself into more of a structured routine, and by speaking openly to my managers we've been able to come to an arrangement that will work well for the both of us. So I'm excited to know that I'll have time outside of my job to focus on primarily my small business (especially coming up to the busy Christmas period) but also some time to write on my blog and maybe make some little tutorial/DIY videos too.

In terms of my goals for the next year, there's just a few things that I'd like to do;

- Get into a good working routine to grow my business and my blog. I'd love to be able to go part time in my current job to focus even more time on growing my side hustles.
- Start going to the gym AT LEAST 3 times a week, I know it helps my mental health massively
- Keep on top of my finances, and don't feel guilty about buying nice things sometimes
- Be happy with where I am right now, stop putting so much pressure on making everything happen right this second. I have time, I need to enjoy my life while I'm working towards my big career goals.
