2014 - 'the year of change'

To say that my life has completely flipped over this year would be a complete understatement.

Although there has been a few good things that has happened this year, these are the ones having the most affect on my life;

My mom and her partner split, resulting in having to sell the house i have lived in for the past 12 years and soon to be moving into rented housing. This also resulted in me having to give away all of my pets who, i tend to love more than humans the majority of the time. I won't go into this situation tooooo much.
My amazing great nanny, who i thought would live in her big old house forever has sadly been moved into a home as at the grand age of 93, she simply can't really look after herself very well anymore.
I attended my first funeral this year. Death is something i really, really struggle to deal with.
I split from the boy i thought i would be with forever, sounds cliche i know, but dealing with that has been an incredibly difficult process.

And its at the point of writing all this down, i think, Jesus Christ ALMIGHTY, everything i have let incredibly affect my life in the past 5 months, as well as many other things but i would be here all day, are incredibly negative things - to the point where i think, have i actually missed all the good moments this year as I've been too busy crying about the negative things? and at this point i realize, i need to pull myself together and i need to actually start enjoying life again, i'm not even 20 years old and i'm moping about like i'm having a mid-life crisis - so, here is my summer plan, because i am a huge believer in lists and PLANS;

- Eat more healthy - healthy body healthy mind blah blah blah you know where i'm coming from
- Exercise and attempt to lose weight (my weight process i will be blogging about)
- Spend less time with negative people
- Laugh more, see the funny side AND the positive side of things
- Write write write until i feel like my fingers are going to fall off
- Look nice, smile more and don't let boys make you cry - they are losers - apart from Alex Turner/Matt Helders/Jake Bugg - but i bet they even have their loser "why are boys so frustrating" moments
- Worry less about my own problems and be there for friends/family who are going through really rubbish times

So i guess my 'plan' isn't really a summer plan its a lifestyle change, a much needed one. Feel free to join me on my journey of turning my life around, maybe this time next year i could be a motivational speaker or something. So in the words of Jake Bugg, i really am going to try my absolute hardest to "hold two fingers up to yesterday" and   m o v e   o n
