Thursday Thoughts: Welcome To The New Age

A note from Joelle...

I took this picture as I yawned and dreaded the busy day ahead. But then I was the sun bursting through the clouds, illuminating the raindrops and dust haze from my window. It was so pretty and made me think about a lot of things...
It's the start of a new year (new year, new me and all that shizz...) so today, I bring you a post about the little changes I am going to try and do to make 2015 the best year everrrrr!
As I sit here listening to an eclectic mix of Imagine Dragons, Regina Spektor and George Ezra, a line stuck out in 'Radioactive': "welcome to the new age".
This year, I enter a new, peaceful age where I'm letting go of stress and taking my blog in a new direction.
Last year was all about saying "YES!" to the opportunities that came my way, and boy, was that an incredible experience. I went on my first press trip, met some incredible writers and wrote some posts that I am so proud of (even if I have to re-edit them due to typos!).

What's surprised me already this year, is that I'm no longer afraid. I'm not afraid of anyone, rejection, making small mistakes! I once took things so seriously, that I never really stopped and realised that nothing has to be that "deep".
The "fuck it" feeling is like no other and I know that being fearless in every aspect of my life will propel me to new heights. And I'm going to take you with me! Every step of the way, where I challenge myself this year, I'll document the highs and lows on this blog. Your support means a great deal to me. I know it's cringe and I say that a lot, but it's true! :)

Let it go - I have taken a leaf out of Queen Elsa's book and am dropping old feuds, apologising and forgiving anyone and everything who's hurt me in the pats. I've changed and that means my attitude have changed too. 

Get my shit together - No seriously! I need to find the perfect balance between my science and artsy mind this year, as I can't let either of them slip away into the thought abyss. 

Say "no"- I know this sounds weird as you just read that last year was all about saying "yes". But what I mean is that I'm not going to let people walk over me this year. It happened a lot in the past, where I was too polite and too afraid of hurting feelings to decline things. But this is a new year and if I'm not up to something for a genuine reason, I'm going to stand up for myself (finally!).

Live in the moment - It's common for bloggers to carry around a camera and document their entire life every single second and I was one of them. But my friend hinted to me that I need to living in the moment more and just appreciate what and who's around me.

We are full of wonder! 
Here's to a fabulous 2015! This year I'm going to put my money where my mouth is and go get my dreams! Are you with me?
