Today I want to talk about 2017 and about what’s to come in 2018.
2017 was a big year for me. I grew much more on Instagram and I grew into a better person. This year I got out of my comfort zone. I had always been a very shy girl, afraid to do things alone. I always thought about what other people would say about me when I walked in the room and my heart started racing when I had to talk in front of a group. I have been struggling with a little bit of social anxiety my whole life. I know you might not have thought this about me, because I am so open on Instagram and on my Instagram stories. But in general I’m a very timid person. This year, however, I stepped out of my comfort zone. In school I had to talk more and more in front of people I didn’t know. I made a lot more friends in school. (I didn’t have a lot of friends there, because I was so afraid all the time). I went to class a lot more and I learned that other people aren’t that scary at all! I went to events, by myself… This was a very big step for me. I normally didn’t dare to go to Antwerp by myself without Thomas. But this year, I did and I felt like a true boss-babe.
I came out of my comfort zone not only on this level, but I also learned how to wear other fashion items. Not only sneakers all the time. I also did things I would’ve been afraid to do when I was younger on my travels. I drove around in Spain, I did a big hike in Vietnam, I discovered new foods, I asked people I didn’t know where I needed to go. And I don’t plan on stopping. In 2018 I’m going to get out of my comfort zone even more. I’m going to India with my boyfriend, for the first time in Asia without my parents. I’m going to keep on challenging myself into becoming the woman I want to be. I’m going to work out more, be healthier, go to more events alone, vlog more, be even more open with my followers. You haven’t seen everything yet people!
This year I also learned that it’s okay to let things go. To let people go. Some people are just not meant to be in your life. It’s not their fault but they just don’t fit into your lifestyle and mindset. If they make you feel like a less better version of yourself, it’s time to let them go. This year also taught me to take things more lightly. Don’t take everything so serious all the time. I only have one life to live and I don’t want to worry all the time and let life pass me by. I enjoyed the little things more. TV and pizza with my bf, shooting photos with my boyfriend, enjoying a movie, time with my mom, cuddles with my dog,… Life can’t be a big experience every single day. So enjoy the little things, and make the best of every day you have.
I learned to be healthier, to feel better, to not feel depressed all the time. I travelled to lots of places and I got more conscious about the world. It made me realize that I want to see a lot more of this planet. I let life take me on adventures and I made my life an adventure just by enjoying every minute of it. Thanks to Instagram I had great opportunities. I got to go to a lot of events (like this amazing TUI event), I have a collaboration with L’oréal and I got free food from Deliveroo (I mean does it get any better than free food?).
I started vlogging more often and I discovered that I love this so much. I started cooking more, and discovered that this is also something I really love to do. I also got closer to a lot of people. Friends became best friends. I realized what real friends are this year. I also realized that it’s okay to feel bad sometimes. Just pick yourself up the next day. I also got a lot closer to my animals. This year we got a new dog, a White Sheperd. She made me fall in love with dogs again. I smiled to almost every person I came across. I tried to better myself on Instagram. Better quality, more personal, more sharing. I love sharing everything with you guys so much and I want to try to keep doing it as long as I can. I just love sharing my life with the world. I have always loved this and I won’t stop it for anything. I don’t do it for the collabs or the events, I do it just for me.
This year was a game changer for me. Me and my life have gotten better on so many levels. And I don’t plan on changing this in 2018. I’m going to travel a LOT. India, Ireland, Mauritius, Rome, … Maybe even other countries. I’m going to improve my photos and feed on Instagram and make everything a lot more professional. I’m going to work on a logo for my blog and YouTube. Talking about YouTube. You’re going to see me on there a lot this year. Also my blog will be a lot more active. I will be healthier. Not only will I work out more and feel better, I will also eat healthier. Maybe a little less meat. I will go on as many adventures as I can, and I will finish my Bachelor in Clinical psychology this year! I will reach 20K and I will hopefully get more opportunities thanks to Instagram. I will do a lot more fun things with my friends and with my boyfriend. But most of all, I will be sharing everything with you guys. Hopefully you will be part of my 2018.
