A wellmeaningbeing 2016

As 2015 rang in last year, I made myself some promises and then wrote them in a post called 15 for 2015 for all to see. I didn't quite get all of my goals done, but that's okay. What rang true for me this year is that life definitely gets in the way and it is okay to not get everything done that you had hoped for. Because what is important, is to not over stretch yourself and to no hold yourself to what you thought you wanted or needed. Things change, events happened and your opinions shift. So it's okay if some hopes and aspirations change.

Here is what I wanted for 2015:

1, run a marathon - DONE!
2, keep a constant exercise routine- nope, this has NOT happened! very much need to improve!
3, get back into reading -I've been reading a lot more! loving it!
4, volunteer- I am currently looking for the right opportunity
5, Pass my driving test- DONE!
6, make a house a home - In process
7, Bake a decent dairy free cake- The boy did make a lovely dairy free chocolate cake... if that counts?
8, learn a new skill - DONE!
9, say yes more - I'm trying
10, see more friends - I have been catching up with them all!
11, this will be the year of no hangovers - so far so good, no hangovers!
12, go on a long holiday - Not yet, maybe next year!
13, treat my mum to a special day out - Ive taken her out for dinner but still need a day out!
14, make time for selfcare-  I have had a whole month of me time, ready for the real world again.
15, be truly myself, at all times- Yes, this year, I have been truly and completely me!
For 2016 i'm not going to make any goals. I'm going to go with the flow and see what happens. Instead of making goals all there will be, is this.
I will aim to:
Eat better (because I have fallen off the bandwagon big time)
Buy less (I have more than enough)
Spend more (time with friends and family)
Blog wise for the later part of 2015 I was not blogging because, simply, I just did not feel like it. I'm never going to force myself to do something that I dont want to do. Now, I'm starting to get twitchy fingers, I'm starting to feel like my old self and feel encouraged to blog more. I want my posts to come from a place where I am fully engaged and happy to write. I want to be authentic in my thoughts that are expressed on here. So if that means wellmeaningbeing doesnt have a blogging schedule and I blog as and when feels right, that's okay by me.

So here is to 2016, may it be kind to you and you treat yourself well! 
Leave the bad behind. What ever negativity 2015 brought your way, leave it in the past with 2015.
2016 is yours for the taking. Honestly, there will probably be some kind of crap that we all have to deal with in the coming year. So there is no room for all the shit that happened in 2015 to come with you. Make some space, do your mental spring clean early. 

Here's to a wellmeaningbeing 2016. 

See you there! Lets make it a good one!
