Oh dear is it already 2017!?

Tuesday, January 03, 2017
Wow time flies. It feels like I haven't even had time to think about my 2016 goals and now it's already a new year, and time for new resolutions. I am not ready for this. In one way I am ready for a new year, but on the other hand not at all. 2016 was a great year for me. It had some ups and downs. But i accomplished some great things, like graduating as a graphic designer. Telling people about my blog and not feeling ashamed. Being more vocal and accepting with my body issues. But I also felt very lost and out of touch with myself. The older I get the more I feel confused about who I am and what I want to be in life. I feel like this new year is the year for that. In 2017 I want to accomplish a lot, but I feel like I am not quite ready yet in some way. I just need a little more time to figure everything out, give me maybe one more month, than I'll be ready to celebrate the new year! But that's not how it works, so here I am sharing how I want to live this year during the first week of the new year.

So what is it exactly I want to do this year? 
1. Buy I bike and start riding it as much as possible. I know vegans and bikes are so popular now and I almost feel ashamed to admit that I am becoming one of those raw till for cult members who make you feel like a bad vegan if you don't eat and ride bikes like them. But let me explain why I am not like those. I don't eat raw till for, I don't even eat vegetables every day (I know that last one is very bad..) I don't look up to Freelee. So the main reason I want a bike is because I have horribly painful knees, working out is so difficult and I don't want to end up with no muscles. I am ready to be fit. And I like biking, it's fun. You can go on bike travels and see the world in a very unique and different way. This brings me to my second point.

2. I want to travel. A lot. I want to travel on my bike. Maybe do Asia again, but see more. Or Australia, America, Norway? Sounds fun right? Well my friends don't really sound that enthusiastic  and want to spend no money on holidays. They talk about going on holidays in Belgium (because that's cheap), which is fun but not really my dream you know..  so we will see what will happen to those plans... I think about traveling alone. But I am a scared chicken who thinks she will get abducted or something when she's alone so... Not quite shore about that. And it's so much more fun to be in an amazing place with your best friends. That's also a big part about traveling for me. 

3.I want to make more art. I love to paint but for some strange reason I rarely do it. This will be the year  am going to finish an entire collection, completely finished like I would present it in a museum. I feel like I want to share the end products on here so maybe that will give me that extra push to actually do it.

4. Start posting more outfits again on this blog. I started as a fashion blogger because I love fashion as  a hobby, it's something I like to express myself with. But life has become more expensive now that I am older and less money goes to clothes. My closet is almost empty and nothing new is coming in. Outfit posts are really hard when you wear the same thing almost every day. I want to change that. I want to show you guys more how you can wear ethical and vegan clothes and still look really cute.

5. I want to be happy. and not happy one moment, and crie the other 3 days in a row, so I can just feel happy the next 3 days, and so it goes on. I want a permanent and constant feeling of happiness. Just feeling content with myself and what I have. It doesn't seem to happen. I keep being stuck in this hole of self pity, negative thoughts and feeling lost. I am always felling like I am not doing what I want. But I  don't know how to get where I want to be. The destination is clear, the path is in the dark. Maybe or maybe not this will be the year I will find my missing piece to feel happy and accomplished. We'll see.
