Half Year Update

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.

  1. 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!!
  2. Get another tattoo. Two more tattoos done – which I hand poked myself – and a few more in the lineup.
  3. 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!
  4. 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.
  5. 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!
  6. 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!
  7. 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!
  8. 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.
  9. 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).
  10. See those beautiful London fireworks as 2018 starts. This will happen!!
