It’s Em from LyfWithEm here. Elm kindly invited me to guest post here, so here I am!
Did you all have a lovely Christmas? I hope you did. I really enjoyed getting to spend time with my family and being in fits of laughter at the table! I’m going to miss that when school starts again. Even if you don’t celebrate Christmas, I hope you managed to relax, have fun and enjoy the holiday.
Now that Christmas is over, I feel a bit down. All the build up, the excitement, the decorations, the music, the food…it’s all over. All I have to look forward to now is another year of hard work, stress, pressure, school, life and goodness knows whatever else life decides to throw my way.
If I look at it that way, surely I’m being pessimistic. Why should I spend my life thinking negatively? Let’s turn it around. Let us be positive and optimistic, because that is what brings happiness and fun.
You have a whole new year ahead of you.
I don’t care what you say, you (very nearly, okay) got out of 2015 alive. You made it. Sure, it may have had it’s down moments. Or it may have been filled with joy. Whichever applies to you, you get another shot at making your life count. You’ve been granted more time to change for the better, and to look at life with a new outlook – that you can be happy and have fun.
As bloggers, we all have our own reasons for starting our blogs. Over the few months I’ve been blogging, I’ve spoken to many amazing people who have gone through more than I can possibly imagine and others who are simply teenagers trying to struggle their way through school life. Either way, every one of us has problems in some form or another.
A new year gives us the opportunity to work together as a blogging community to help one another to overcome their problems. Some of you may know that I have anxiety and panic attacks, and already this blog has helped me start my recovery. I want to give the same love and support to every single one of my followers as they have given to me.
Let’s embrace this new year.
Let’s support each other.
Let’s all be kind, giving and supportive.
We can do anything.
I’m going to leave you now, but you can check me out if you wish. If not, then I get it. I’m not as interesting as Elm is.
Just remember that we all love YOU.
Love, Em x
