Hello hello and happy 2019 to you! God, it’s been so long since I’ve written that I also owe you a Merry Christmas! I hope you had a fabulous break eating, drinking and seeing loved ones. Quite seriously I am now 98% mince pie, fruit cake and prosecco!!!
It has been such a mental month for us that I feel like the whole thing passed in a blink and I wish I’d documented more of it on this blog. For starters, I’M ENGAGED NOW!!!!! <3 We had the most perfect time in Mexico and my best friend became my fiancé!!! I can’t believe it. Absolutely more to come on this but for now, back to 2019…
I’d planned to start the year with a bang. I had so many 2019 goal setting, motivational, reflective posts planned but…like Cinderella, at the stroke of midnight on New Years Eve, the sparkles around me faded, my shoes fell off and I swapped my glamorous jumpsuit for my tatty old dressing gown. I felt AWFUL and lost my voice within the space of about half an hour. The next day, looking back at my Instagram story, I concluded that this new husky voice I’d acquired was down to drunk Sian’s incessant need to shout everything at high pitch. Not to mention the fact I’d covered every McFly and Busted song imaginable on the karaoke.
However, it turns out my 2019 began with a throat infection (not karaoke-itis) and what felt like the flu. 5 days of lying on the sofa feeling like shit, eating nothing but ice cream, pizza and all the best crappy foods + skipping my daily workout drained me of my motivation and it’s only today that I’ve started to feel myself again. I’ve got my mojo back! Yeah baby, yeah!
I wrote on Instagram a few days ago that this year, I only really have one focus – one goal. I’ve spent countless years starting the year with the promise to eat clean, a brain thinking “this is finally the year I’ll be skinny” and other negative, unfulfilling goals on my list. This year is about adding more things to my life that fill me with happiness – more music, more art, more nature, more love. It’s just about adding more of those little things where I can – a goal that makes me feel good and excited for the year ahead.
What’re your goals?
OH – and I’ve given the blog a little re-vamp. Turns out there’s already a “Love Sian” with quite a few followers and I’m not about to tread on anyone’s toes! So… meet Positively Sian! I’ve also made a new Instagram solely for all things positive, blog-related and inspiring. Join the journey @positivelysian 😀
Mexico photo diary coming soon!
Love Siân x
