Make 2015 Your Year!

For those super observant readers out there, you may have noticed that I didn't post yesterday,(hence today's post), I did have this post planned but I actually got distracted editing the appearance of my blog,- as you can see, I didn't get very far! I have changed a few little things and it will be a work in progress but for any fellow bloggers out there, do you have any suggestions of how to make my blog more professional? photography especially, I am not content with my photography in the slightest. Ideas please?!

Moving swiftly on, just a short one for you all today, and this post is kind of about my personal goal, which I think could be adapted to fit anyone.

Towards the end of 2014, I decided that I'd had enough of turning opportunities down, though I was not a very confident person and stepping outside my comfort zone was not appealing to me. A summer programme in 'NCS with The Challenge' came up and even though all my friends took part, I turned it away. WRONG MOVE. Luckily for me I was given the chance to take part in NCS' autumn programme, which was much shorter,
so I just said 'yes'.

Honestly, I do wish I'd done the summer scheme because it was so much longer, but just in my week taking part I gained so much as a person, I am much more confident in public speaking, a skill that will really benefit me in the future, so I urge you, if the chance happens to come up for you to take part in NCS, please JUST SAY YES!
You can thank me later!

I have decided to make 2015 my year, starting with a big opportunity that I have accepted for this February, I am going to do work experience in Spain for a week and a half. (I do study Spanish by the way, i'm not that spontaneous) but my point is, that if I can say yes to this, I think you too can accept some opportunities! 

I'm really looking forward to sharing my exciting experiences this year through this blog, starting with my trip to Spain! This is a new year, full of new chances, you just have to push yourself!

Happy New Year!!
