A bit of a ramble post today. I’ve been thinking a lot about my life post-surgery recently and what I want to make of it. There are lots of things I’ve been unable to do for quite a while. I’m still unable to do quite a few things during recovery but I think it’s really important to have goals to aim for so you don’t get a bit down in the dumps whilst stuck in the house letting yourself heal. Here are a few of my plans and goals for my hopefully bright and fun future!
I never thought this would be something that I’d be itching to do. Just before I got unwell, I started going to the gym regularly aswell as going swimming and playing badminton. It made me feel so much better in myself mentally and physically and made me feel so much less guilty for enjoying the odd chocolate binge. I cannot wait to get back to it and start strengthening my body again. I love exercise and would really love to start going to some classes, too.
Only recently I’ve realised just how much I really miss it. The buzz I get singing infront of people really doesn’t compare to anything else. It’s such an incredible feeling and I haven’t performed in a very long time. I’m not saying it’s going to be a super regular thing as I know life is very busy. It’s probably only going to get even more so but I really do want to start getting back out there again with my voice. I’m determined to make it happen and I’ve already had some Bristol producers get in touch with me to work together soon. Keep an eye out on my social medias for some videos and updates on that in the near future!
As I’ve mentioned in a recent post, I already have Sorrento and Switzerland booked for 2019 but I want to travel as much as I can. That includes around the UK, too. I just want to explore as much as I can and not much other than money is holding me back anymore. My current plans involve possibly doing some inter-railing but who knows what the future holds!
I have lots of plans and ideas in the works for this and I’m really excited to make them come to life. I was hoping to get this up and running as soon as possible in the new year but I don’t want to rush anything as I want this to be a lasting and growing thing rather than rushed and short-lived. I will release more details about it when the time is right but if you’re a lover of my blog, personal style and interests then you’ll be excited for this.
This might sound a bit odd as this isn’t something I’ve really talked about on here before. I’ve literally wanted to do some adventurous activities for years but have just been too lazy or busy to do so. I’ve been looking up some really cool places and am really excited to actually go and do these things when I’m well enough and fit enough. I want to go quad biking, go on zip wires, assault courses, maybe even sky diving. Jake and I were also looking at going to the Lake District for some hardcore walking in the near future. I’ve always wanted to go paint balling too but I’m a bit worried about my stoma getting hit by one now, HA.
I’m very, very excited for this! There are so many wonderful charities out there that put on events or need people to do so for them and I really want to get involved more. Charities closer to my heart and situation and some not so much but ones that I admire and want to support. I’ve had plans to do this for quite a while but I’ve been to unwell to, it WILL be happening as soon as possible!
I still have no idea what I’m going to do with my life. In an ideal world, my blog/new business venture will take off and I’ll be able to make a proper living out of it. We do not live in an ideal world though so I’ll be working for it but not counting on it. I want to gradually get myself back into a job and hopefully find something I like enough to make a real go of it. I feel like I have creativity running through my veins but being academic (other than numbers, I’m a nerd for maths) is not my forté so we shall see where I end up.
Sometimes Jake and I feel like the universe doesn’t like the fact that we are together. We’ve had a lot of crap thrown at us as individuals and as a couple that have affected our ability to move forward but luckily we love each other too much let it affect our determination that one day we will be in a position to do all of those standard couple things. I am honestly SO unbelievably bloody excited for that day. When I’m well enough to be working and earning a fair bit of money again, we hope to move in together and start our life properly as a little family (with Nacho) and I cannot wait.
I’m going to be able to spend more time doing things with loved ones and as much as I adore my blog and I adore creating content, I’ve missed out on a lot of real life for what feels like forever. I haven’t decided what’s going to happen, whether I’m going to have a less frequent schedule or whether I’m going to start uploading sporadically instead. I’ll let you know, for anyone who cares!
