Happy New Year, 2019.

New Year 2019 Low Wood Bay

Happy New Year and welcome to 2019 on bylaurenjane.  It is fair to say I was unable to commit to posting as much content on here as previous years.  Why? I moved my focus to curating content for my Instagram.  I also decided to take the pressure off myself to post on here every week.  I had a lot going on in the latter half of 2018, and adding additional pressure was just damaging.

With the sheer panic and outcry from Instagram users when the ‘bug’ was released a few days ago, where your feed moved towards a side-swipe view, it brought home to me how important this space is.  Will Instagram be around forever? Probably not, but I’d like to think the written word on a website will stand the test of time, or even just a little longer than Instagram.

I don’t plan to set any major resolutions this year, other than to focus on my health.  I need to make time every day to relax, and know I need to meditate or focus on breathing for at least 10 minutes each and every day.  

I plan to say ‘no’ more.  I don’t mean this in the sense of doing less things, but to set boundaries.  If I’m not happy about something, I won’t go along with it just to keep the peace or to keep another happy at the expense of my own happiness or health.

Last year I wanted to read more, I started the year out well, and don’t think I picked up a book in the last three months of the year.  I definitely need to re-focus this goal in 2019.  This also aligns with ‘switching’ off earlier at night.  I go to bed and spend 30 minutes swiping through Instagram.  This isn’t healthy for me.

I wish you all a 2019 filled with health, wealth and happiness.  I’d love to know your plans, goals and resolutions for the coming year, so leave a comment.
