1st Quarter Down: Reflecting On 2018 So Far

I don't mean to alarm any of you, but in case you haven't realised: we are already one quarter of the way through 2018. 25% of this year is gone already. I've talked about time and how much it freaks me out when I think about how quickly it goes by, but I think that acknowledging when a certain amount of time has passed and reflecting on how it was spent is a great way to stay present and ensure that you're living your life to the fullest, so that's what I will be doing today!

This year I didn't set any New Year's resolutions for myself. Instead, I gave myself a Word of the Year: flourish. To flourish is to grow or develop in a healthy or vigorous way, and that's exactly what I want to do. I want to learn as much as I can about the world, and experience as many new things as possible, and I honestly think I have done a great job at that so far.

Already this year I have completed multiple different DIY projects that I had never before tried, I have made 5 completely brand new to me recipes so far (and have plenty more on the to do list!), I've started reading more, I went on my first plane ride, I'm getting my health in order, and I have brought people into my life and heart that I never expected to, and it has all been wonderful. 

I could not be happier with how this year is going, and it makes me positively giddy to think about all the memories I'll have to look back on at the end of the year. I've already started to draft up this year's Anti-Bucket List (purely so I can keep track of everything) and it is looking amazing. 

I cannot wait to see how full the list will be in December as there are still so many amazing things to do, see, and experience throughout the rest of the year. Daniel and I have our fifth anniversary coming up in June, his birthday in July, my birthday in September, and we are hoping to go on another holiday at the end of the year! 

I have big dreams when it comes to my own self growth, and I truly believe I am on my way to becoming the person I have always wanted to be. I have already worked so hard at filling my life with the things I love most, now I just have to work on myself. I want to become more creative, resourceful, and confident. 

I want to shatter my fears and officially shut the door to my past. I want to allow myself to welcome new possibilities. I want to look back on my life and know that I took everything it had to offer, and never let any opportunity pass me by - and I honestly believe I am on my way there. You only get one life, and I'm going to make sure mine is nothing less than amazing ✨

But enough about me! Tell me, how is your 2018 going? What has been your favourite moment so far? What are you looking forward to in the near future? I would love to hear all about it!

Until next time,
