How To Realise Your Dreams | Happy New Year!

Zara Metallic Bronze  Midi Skirt
This used to be my least favourite time of year due to the low temperatures and bare walls after all of the fairy lights have been taken down after Christmas.  However, this changed when I opened my eyes to the opportunities January presents!  I know, I know, we can start working on our goals at any time of year.  But regardless of your viewpoint on resolutions and goals, there's no denying the first month of the year tends to set a fire underneath us that stirs us all into action.  Motivational quotes are coming at us from left, right and centre.  Don't ignore them.  It's time to buckle down, work hard and start realising your dreams in 2019!  We'll be on this journey together...

Now this is the fun part.  If you're going top put 100% of your energy into something, it needs to be what you most desire, or else halfway through the journey you'll be left questioning yourself.  The good news?  Once you've identified your goals and drivers, your focus is set.  You're ready to achieve.   


L E A R N   T O   A T T R A C T

Okay so we won't get too deep into the whole concept of manifestation, but something I've learnt over the past year or so is that the more you visualise your dreams, the more likely they are to materialise.  Cut out the crap, keep the positivity.  Watch what happens!     


M A N A G E   Y O U R   S T R E S S

Another lesson, and one I had to learn the hard way.  Eventually your stress will catch up with you, and so the greatest gift you can give yourself is to work on your mental health.  Mindfulness, exercise, CBT, therapy - whatever works for you!

... and it'll catapult you forward!

My favourite, for sure.  The only surefire way to commit to your goals and realise your dreams in 2019, is to get intense; to be passionate about what you're doing.  By doing so, you're ensuring the journey will never lose momentum and will never feel monotonous

  7. I love the idea of learning to attract! I find that these days people (including myself) can sometimes get too caught up in trying to do too big things all at once when the key to success and really being truly happy is to take things bit by bit, be in the present, remove toxitity from your life, and surround yourself by people who make you feel good. yes, it's important to plan ahead, but don't try accomplishing those plans all at once. happy 2019 xx

    P.S. How can you wear maxi and midi skirts so well?! ;)

  11. Love your outfit, especially the skirt + booties combo! I couldn't agree more with your tips, especially the one about manisfestation. Being surrounded by negativity last year I feel like I definitely attracted even more negative energy, so this year I'm all about cutting that toxicity out and only embracing positivity! Hope your new year is off to a great start!

    Lots of love ♥ January Girl

  14. Such good points and this sentence "there's no denying the first month of the year tends to set a fire underneath us that stirs us all into action" is so spot on!

    Somehow I'm only inspired to make new plans in life after the year has changed and this year I want to make BIG changes! As soon as I get home from our still ongoing holiday I will sit down with a notepad and plan my butt off. xx

  25. So so true babe! These are great reminders of how to realize our dreams in 2019. I also love that you say that we're in this together, because we truly are. It's about supporting one another, staying happy and grateful about what happens on the way. So excited to reach the next level this year in all aspects of life! Xx

  26. I've set myself goals for 2019 but mainly I've broken it down into goals for this month and it's been really helpful. I think engaging your passion for the goals you want to hit is so important as well, 'cause otherwise all your goals just end up feeling like chores!

    Some great tips here and you're right it's so important to manage stress levels and concentrate on health, after all it's the main thing that keeps you going both mentally and physically.

    When it comes to life, aim to lift others up and make them smile even the ones that may not always make you smile, instead give them a reason to smile. Hope and love to me is the answer :)

    Really hope you're keeping well and here's to a happy hearty and health 2019.
