Make the right decisions for YOU. Feedback from the survey.

So, I’ve started to realize that no one really cares about anyone else when it comes to their education. They don’t care if they mess up someone’s future or grades that they get. They don’t care if you get kicked out of school, as long as they get what they want (Decent grades, a good job that leads to a good future) then their okay.

Last week I was speaking to someone and they said to do what’s best for me. To get all my work done before I worry about anyone else because that is the only way I’m going to succeed in what I want to do. Although, my problem with that is that I care about people probably a lot more than I should (that’s not supposed to sound horrible), what I mean by that is that I put others first, sometimes I put them before myself and that means putting them before my education. It doesn’t matter who you are, whether I’m really close to you or whether I hardly know you at all, if I see you upset then I’m most likely going to ask if you’re okay and sometimes I will end up sitting with that person for an hour (Maybe more), trying to help. The downside to that is that I’m probably not going to get any work done.

Most likely the people reading this are going to be thinking, “but that person is upset so you should be seeing if their okay and talking to them, it doesn’t matter about your work”. However, if all I do is help people then I am never going to get on with my work, of course I love helping people, but sometimes it needs to come first.

The point of this post was to basically say that no matter what happens, you have to make sure that you make the right decisions for YOU and YOUR future. Don’t do something if you know deep down it’s not the right thing to do. There are the few odd people that do care but when it comes to your education think about it. Is it worth risking your grades? No, probably not. Don’t be sat in some job you don’t like in 30 years time wishing that you had done things differently. Make the right choices for you because you’ll only disappoint yourself.

I’m only writing about this because I have ended up regretting things from the past, but not the usual “I really regret saying that”. I regret opportunities that I didn’t take. Most of the time, I didn’t take the opportunities because I was scared someone would be horrible and would make me regret going, but now that I think about it now, I probably would’ve been okay. Whenever I used to get offered anything, as in like going somewhere, I’d think about it and constantly going through my mind would be, “someone might say something”, “it’s not going to be fun, what if someone is horrible?”, “what if you can’t talk to anyone because you always struggle to hold conversations?”, “what if they make a joke out of you?” Now I’m wishing I took the opportunities and didn’t care about what was going to happen. I’m always asking myself “what if”, when really I shouldn’t be asking myself what if, I should be taking the chances and going for what’s best.

If you do the same and sit there and think “what if”, maybe stop. Another one of my goals for 2016 is to live in the moment and take things as they come, to stop myself from worrying about what might happen. Maybe you should do the same 🙂

Please answer this, it would really help!

Hi there, I have created a sort of survey (if that’s what you want to call it). I have done this because I would like to get people’s opinions on my blog, I always get told that it’s a great thing that I’m doing, but I want to hear from everyone that takes the time to read my blog. It would be really helpful if you could answer the questions on the survey, all you have to do is click on the link below. I’m the only one that can see the results so don’t be nervous about answering them (there’s not many). Thank you!
My next blog post will be up next Thursday, much love. – Alison xx

2016 goals.

It’s one month and 19 days until 2016… It’s one month and 19 days until it’s a year since I started my blog. I’m looking forward to so much, I’ve got so many ideas for next years blog posts and I’m so excited to share it with you guys. One of my main goals is to step outside of my comfort zone quite a bit, I tried to this year and I’ve managed to a little bit but I want to step out of my comfort zone by 10 miles. I want to boost my confidence more than it already is. I didn’t really have a goal for 2015 because I had already achieved everything I wanted to in 2014 and didn’t know what else I could achieve, but the goal is to better myself even more and achieve things that will help to make me a success for myself.

5 of my main goals for 2016:

  1. Overcome my fears: I want to get over the fears that I have, I want to be able to walk around a public place and not worry about what people think or say. I want to overcome so much, anyone knowing what I want to overcome may think that it’s impossible but I don’t think it is. A lot can happen in a year.
  2. Boost my confidence: The aim of my year is to boost my confidence. I have always suffered from confidence problems but this year I’m hoping to change that! *fingers crossed*
  3. Help more people: The goal is to help more people, that’s not really a goal for 2016 that’s a goal for life. (Oh well, it still counts)
  4. Spread more positivity: Anyone that knows me will know that I’m always positive, or at least I try to be positive. At school I’m always the one laughing and making bad jokes to make people smile. Positivity is the way forward.
  5. Have a good year: I want to try my hardest not to let anyone get me down and have a good year. I’m really positive about 2016, I have a good feeling about it Smile

So here are my goals for 2016, just thought I’d share them with you. Thank you for all the support over the past few months, it’s been great Smile There will be a new post up Thursday. Keep smiling – Alison xx
