5 Things Im Looking Forward To In My 20's

As some of you will know, I turned 20 in March. Does that mean I'm a proper adult now? *cries* I've already done a post on "20 things I have learnt in 20 years" and I thought it would be interesting to share the 5 things Im most looking forward to in my 20's. 

My main goal for my life, but especially my 20's is travelling. I want to see the world! I already have a few trips planned for this year to visit places I've never been to before. Life is too short to stay in one place and to stick to what you are familiar with. I actually did a post all about the 10 places I want to visit before I die. You can see that post here, but since writing that I have added a load of other places to my never ending list. The Maldives and Venice have now jumped up to the very top of my list! Well then, I better get saving...fast!

Being Healthy
I strongly believe that your health and happiness are the most important things in this entire world! My ideal of being healthy is a lot different to most peoples. I have Myalgic Encephalophathy which is the fancy term for m.e so my idea of healthy will be really different to others. For most of 2015 my idea of being health was being able to get out of bed, shower and change all by myself without having to go back to sleep after doing so. I was diagnosed at age 19 but after seeing a lot of different types of doctors, I am a lot better now. Thank God! But will I ever be free of it? Probably not. Will I be able to run the London marathon one day? Probably not. My health goals are a lot smaller than that. I want to be able to wake up almost every morning feeling ok and being able to get out of bed and achieve normal "everyday" tasks. I want to spend my 20's making as many healthy choices as I can to get myself into my best form like eating as fresh and clean as I can and drinking as much water as I can. I don't smoke or drink alcohol so I'm ok on that front. I will probably never have a six pack or be able to lift 40kg but who knows? Maybe one day I will be able to achieve all of the things I thought were impossible.  

Meeting new people
My teen years were spend with me hiding behind others, especially in my mid teens when I use to suffer with really bad depression and anxiety and my constant panic attacks held me back in meeting new people. But that's a different topic for another day. So what about dating you ask? Well that was something that completely terrified me. I have never been on a "proper" date before because I was so worried about meeting new people. But it really does show how much you can change as a person because now I love speaking to new people. I still get anxiety but that's something I am really going to try to push away so I can meet some new peeps. 

I know I mentioned travelling as one of the things I'm looking forward to in my 20's, but I don't mean travelling when I say exploring here. I mean exploring who I am as a person and exploring different beauty and fashion trends and exploring the area where I was brought up. There is just a lot about myself that I want to explore and discover to see who I am as a person. Im not quite sure if that makes sense or not. Hopefully it does. 

Self acceptance/self love
I am already half way to loving myself. I spent so many of my teenage years absolutely hating every inch of myself but now I'm starting to appreciate and love my body and what it can do. This is mostly to do with age and the fact that I have been ill. It makes you appreciate a lot of things you would take for granted. Another reason why I never use to like meeting new people was because I was so insecure in my own body and that is sad. And I know a lot of people struggle with self acceptance too but I do believe that it comes to all of us in the end. When I use to hear my mum or aunties saying that I always use to think "oh yeah, as if. I'm never going to love my body." But a lot of that is linked to hormones and changing etc. I still have a way to go, but hopefully in my 20's I will get there. If you are on that same path of self love and acceptance, check out Cartia Mallan on youtube. Her new video about self-love has opened my eyes and mind even more. She has such a beautiful soul and more people should watch her videos and learn from her wise words. Im sure you all will love her. 

What are you most exited about in your 20's, 30's or 40's? 

Love, Rebecca
