2018: The year of change – and why that’s a good thing

Towards the end of 2017 it became quite apparent to me that the next year could potentially be a big one. I have big plans for 2018 and it’s daunting, but like I’ve said before, your comfort zone does nothing for you.

A change of career

I’ve spoken about this quite a bit – sorry. But it’s been a really big deal for me. Change is hard for many people, and when you’re somebody who suffers from anxiety, change can be terrifying. Moving into a different industry means that my whole lifestyle is different now and it’s not quite the same as when I changed jobs last year – from one marketing job to another. I’m learning a whole new role and a whole new industry as well as adjusting to completely new routines, but it’s been worth it. I told myself that this would be the year that I put happiness first, and I simply can’t regret that.

Moving out

Eek. Another scary life change. After six years together, my boyfriend and I have made the decision that it’s time for us to move in together. We’re working it all out and viewing flats and I can’t resist a bit of homeware window shopping…

Getting a book published

If somebody had told me this time last year that I’d be a published author very soon, I probably would have fallen over. It’s something I’ve dreamed of for almost as long as I can remember and I’m very excited to hold the final version. It’s a tough old process – particularly when writing about mental health – and sometimes it’s really, really hard. It’ll be worth it in the end, just like the other changes will.

I am making 2018 the year of positive change. The year of putting well-being first and creating the life that I want to live because, if you’re not happy with what you do, you probably shouldn’t be doing it.
