2015.

With the end of a year comes with it new motivation, new dreams and new hope. Whatever 2014 looked like for you, I hope 2015 treats you well. You all know what's it's like to be so determined to start resolutions (I'm going to exercise! I'm going to eat healthy! I'm going to - maybe tomorrow) and how easily it is to break them (put down your 7th chocolate bar Maggie...) so hopefully this post will inspire you to start 2015 with a bang - and keep you inspired for more than a few days...

1. Forgive and Forget
Ending the year with a grudge or enemies of sorts isn't the best way to be starting the new year. The new year should symbolise a fresh start - for old habits and old problems. Make amends - build a bridge, bake cookies, give out hugs.

2. Set realistic goals
It's so easy to get caught up in resolutions and The End Product that you don't even know how you're going to get there. For example, if you're anything like me and "exercise" is that dreaded walk from the fridge to my room upstairs, you'll probably find that exercising everyday for 1 hour from the get-go is more of a no-go. Start with baby steps; short walks which turn into jogs and a few times a week some online routines such as Blogilates. 

3. Do something that scares you  
Now I'm not talking about jumping off cliffs and petting spiders or whatever, but something that's out of your comfort zone; talking to new people, going out more, dancing, whatever! It's been scientifically proven (maybe) that doing something that scares you can expand yourself as a person and open so many opportunities.
*But don't give in to peer pressure! Use your gut feeling and brains to tell if something's right or wrong*

4. Kindness is Free
Leave your grumpy pants in 2014, not only are they out of season, they smell of negativity and misery. Seriously, with all the devastating events in our world there is no more room for all this racism, transphobia, sexism, albeism, slut-shaming etc! etc! etc! Do us all a favour and be nice - please and thank you!

5. New Beginnings
You may think that as it's the new year it is your only chance to start afresh. But boy oh boy, you are wrong. Every morning we have a chance to begin again; to start over; every day is a possibility to became who you want to be. Don't beat yourself up if you break a resolution or stuff up - who doesn't - but success isn't if we succeed or win, it's how we don't give up. 

Lots of love & all the best,
Maggie x

P.S Don't you dare try pull the "I haven't showered since last year" crap
