So, if you’ve been following my blog this year, then you may recall I wrote a post entitled 2017 Hopes and Dreams back at the start of the year. As we are now half way through (hello summer!), I thought I’d revisit it, just to see how I’m doing and give you all a little (extremely overdue) update on all things happening in the world of Megan.
- Help more people. This year, I created #PosiMH chat over on Twitter which has grown exponentially since it first began at the start of February. I receive messages thanking me for helping people through the chat and through my words on this blog, which makes me teary every single time! I hope to continue doing this through the year and beyond!!
- Get another tattoo. Two more tattoos done – which I hand poked myself – and a few more in the lineup.
- Go to as many festivals as possible. I have the BEST job in the world – I work on the bar at festivals and I honestly wouldn’t change it. 3 down, many more to go this summer!
- Learn to play bass guitar. This one is in the works, but hopefully I’ll start in September after festival season – I’ve contacted a man who is willing to teach me, I just need to find a bit more time.
- Read more. My goal for this year is 30 and thus far I’ve read 17, so I’m on my way to my goal!
- Stay clean. Finally after over a decade with pretty crap mental health, I’m finally on my way to recovery – April 6th was the first day I felt so much better. So although it may have been a shocking way to begin the year, things are constantly on the up!
- Put myself out there. I’m doing everything I never expected to do and it’s pretty fab – there’s still so many things I want to do, and I sure as hell am going to do them all!
- Travel as much as possible. Although I am yet to go abroad this year, I am constantly travelling through work. In June alone, I travelled to Portsmouth, London, Isle of Wight, Southampton, Middlesbrough, Stockton-on-Tees, Darlington, Brighton and back home to Kent. Busy, busy, busy.
- Enjoy the little things. I endeavour to do this everyday and I think it’s what has changed my mental health status, life is bloody wonderful (even if really bad things happen).
- See those beautiful London fireworks as 2018 starts. This will happen!!
