The Five Emotions of Moving

So you may have seen on my Twitter recently that my boyfriend and I have moved out for the first time into our own house (hence the lack of blog posts), and while this is super exciting it is also been very stressful. Something I did not expect, scrap that we did not expect. So I thought I would share (and rant) with you some things no one tells you to expect when your moving and all the emotions that come with it.

As this was our first time moving we didn't really have the best idea of where to start. There are a lot of factors to consider, what location, our budget, is it close to our works, family etc. After all those decisions comes the confusion of which Real estate agent to go with or just figuring out simple things like rates.

This emotion is a hard one, because after all the confusion of deciding things and actually finding somewhere you can see yourselves, the rejection that comes with an offer is hard. This happened to us once, and I was really set on the house and was very upset when the offer was declined, especially when there is no reason given.

This was an emotion that carried on throughout the whole process, and I did not like it one bit! The whole not knowing or understanding what is happening along with university pressure and work, really just piled on top of me. Which is kind of obvious in the fact there has been very little content on my blog, but now I have wifi and uni pressure has ended so I can really concentrate on my blog again - YAY!

Along with the stress that comes with viewing houses and picking the ones you like, comes hope. This is the slightly happier emotion where we can get a little less stressed, and wait in anticipation for some answers or at the possibility of going and viewing a house that we think will be really nice.

This is the best emotion in this whole process. Fact. That call or email stating that the house is yours gives an overwhelming sense of joy and relief. The stress flies away (until the actual moving happens) and you can get happy/excited about the fact you've finally got your own place and you can start planning the next stage of the process.

Soooo that is my ramble on all the emotions that has happened during this moving process,  I think I might do a house tour post within the next couple of weeks, so let me know if you'd like to see that.

My 2017 Goals

It's that time of year again when we're all thinking about New Years Resolutions, well this year I've decided to take a different approach and set myself goals. I actually want to achieve these throughout the whole year, and I think with resolutions we're all motivated for about a month then we're all a bit down when we fail. Well, I say no more, here is my list of goals that I think are realistic and achievable... 

ᐖ Keep a journal ᐛ

I love looking back on all my old diaries from when I was a child and I would like to keep one for this whole year. Plus it gives me a purpose for this gorgeous leather journal got me for Christmas!

ᐖ Get fitter ᐛ

I think this is seen as a generic resolution of let's loose weight, although I would like too that is not my goal. I want to  be fitter and enjoy exercise again, something I've always loved but lost the motivation for which is why I think I might bring back my Monday Motivation posts.

ᐖ Be happier ᐛ
A lot happened last year that dimmed light of happiness, and this year I want to take a more positive approach on life. No more moaning or groaning, I need to change my attitude and just get on with things, no matter how bad or good they may be. I don't want to go through another year of being down or sad, so this is a big goal for me.

ᐖ Bigger and Better Blog ᐛ
I really love my blog, and I love how much I've achieved so far within 14 months, and I only want to make it better. For me this is my little release to concentrate on when I want to block out the normalities and stresses of life, and ramble my thoughts through a keyboard to you guys. Kind of like a digital dairy! I've soooooo many new ideas and thinks I want to try, so I can't wait to get the hectic month of January over with so I can start trying them all out. 

ᐖ Me Time ᐛ

I hate to admit it, but in 2016 I kind of let myself go a bit. Not in a way were I'm trying to impress other people or appear to be something I'm not, but I kind of lost the motivation to take care of me, both mentally and physically.  So my goal is to take me time everyday, wether it be five minutes to paint my nails, a quick phone call to my therapist or a whole pamper evening to myself, I prosper to make an effort everyday in what I'm wearing, how I appear, and just taking a few minutes to gather my thoughts and motivate myself for the rest of the day.

So they are my five goals for 2017, I do believe they are achievable and I really really want to stick to it. So fingers crossed I can! Let me know you're goals or resolutions for this years in the comments, and Happy New Year to you all!
