2016 Things I Learnt in 2016

Jokes lols. But '2016 things I learnt in 2016' is crazy old snappy title, right?! 

I'm just going to quickly go on and say that 2016 was collectively a pretty crap year. And it wasn't a great year personally either. Having such a nice and relaxing Christmas holidays has been SO welcome and needed. But let's not dwell on the past. With all the not so great things that happen, are loads of lessons. I thought instead of resolutions, I'd share a few lessons and good habits I picked up last year, that I plan to carry into this year.

- Be kinder to yourself.

- Exercise always makes you feel better.

- Female friendships are super important. Treasure them.

- Don't be scared of being "difficult". Stand up for yourself.

- Be disciplined. Set time aside to do stuff you love. Literally carve out Me Time.

- Solitary walks are good for the soul.

- It's better to have fewer friends, whose company you actually enjoy. 

- Don't have your phone out around people. Give people all your attention and time when you're with them. Even if the convo is super boring.

- Know who you are and own it. Don't feel awkward or uncomfortable for just being. 

- Compliment and lift people up. Even if you don't normally talk to them.

- You don't always have to be right. 

- Own your opinions and views. But also read up on others, don't be ignorant.

- Listen.

I'd say 2016 was the year I fell back in love with blogging. I've now got so many personal plans and goals for this blog and I'm really excited about it! From now to September, I'd say I've got a lot more time on my hands than I've had in a long time. SO I plan to read, a lot more. Now that I've learnt that life changing magic of not finishing a book you don't want to read, I'm hyped. I will do this. I also want to write more film content - my favourite to write but it personal takes a while and I get pretty lazy about it. Not this year. There's a lot I'm already looking forward to seeing and reading this year which I'm sure I'll share over the next few weeks!

So for now I'll say, have a happy, successful, productive and blessed New Year 



  1. All of these goals are fantastic Susan - I'll be referring to them myself this year! Solitary walks have become my jam as of late - as has exercise, and it's done me the world of good. I'm excited to catch up on your posts I've missed and see what you share over 2017! I hope it is a fab year for you! Oh, and the title of this post totally got me FYI, haha ;-)

    1. Same! It's so nice to just escape from like desk space for example and just be disconnected for some time I've found I've really needed it! And thank you! Means a lot! <3 I hope it's great for you too! Haha glad to know my misleading titles are working xx
