I have been a bit absent from my little corner of the internet for a little while, I'm sure I have been sorely missed! (Well my mum said she did!) The main reason for my hiatus being, Amy and I just got very busy, which is amazing really. I love that we have filled our lives up again with so many new and exciting things!
The other reason was I felt the blog had run it's course and maybe I had said all I wanted to say. I know now I was wrong. I have missed blogging and keeping a written record of my life. This blog has acted like an external hard drive of my memories for so long and I am not ready to give that up. So I am sorry to say you are stuck with me!
So onto today's post, last year Amy and I decided instead of setting new years resolutions we would have a go at taking part in the #onelittleword movement. For 2015 my word was positive and I really felt like it has made a difference and has filtered down into all aspects of my life. The most positive part being my beautiful girlfriend agreeing to become my wife in 2016!
This year I am choosing courage. One of the main things my brain injury robbed me of was my confidence. I think at times I probably was a little too confident. I do feel like this is a huge piece of the puzzle of the 'old me'. I am under no pretences that one day everything will go back to exactly how it was before but some things might, if I push myself, if I work on having more courage.
I am really excited about working on this word, I feel inspired all over again and am ready to see some real and hopefully long lasting changes. The first way in which I am going to achieve this word is each month I am going to be completing a personal challenge. The personal challenges are going to be me doing something for the first time since my bleed or the first time ever!
We haven't quite decided on all the challenges just yet but I am so excited to get started. Of course I will be documenting them all on here so keep an eye out every Friday for a new post.
Thanks again to everyone for all your continued support!
