The Power of a Complete Fresh Start

If you've been reading this blog from a while (lool *tumble weed*) you'll probably know by now, I've gone from working full time back home in North Wales to moving to university veeeeery far from home and, well let's say I'm no longer the girl of yester year. Very far from it. Today I wanted to write a little blog post on a Fresh Start, something that's not always easy to do, but if achieved can, in some ways, change your life. I so desperately needed a fresh start like you won't believe. I now, whilst at uni am the happiest I've been for such a long long time, it only took a matter of moving half why across the country... of course your fresh start doesn't have to be THAT dramatic, but this worked for me!
A fresh start was something I so desperately craved. I had got myself in a rut. I was working full time, not doing much else, not making any new friends and starting to generally hate everything. Of course, I'm no quitter so I put up with it, but more and more was it weighing down on me. I've spoken before here about how it is to go straight to working full time as apposed to uni from school. At first, I loved it. I was earning money and having a slight bit of independence.. but gradually the job got worse and worse. I have never spoken ~really~ about my job properly on this blog and I don't want to start now, going into that really aiiiiint needed right now. In someways I believe in the mantra 'everything happens for a reason' because if I hadn't have had that job, I probably wouldn't have even thought of university as an option.

Cut to now, I'm in a complete new area, with complete new friends, living in a complete new room. For some this can be too daunting and the thought of not being 'home' is too much. But for me it was exactly what I needed. Everyday now, I am excited to see what the day holds, even if it does turn out to be a bit shit - at least I'm a lot more optimistic HA! 

Of course a fresh start can mean different things to different people. It can a matter of switching jobs, leaving a toxic relationship or like me moving away. I know people who hate change and that's fair enough, your surrounds may be just fine for you for a long long time. I just feel if things start weighing you down, start effecting you mentally, a fresh start is what is needed. Its worked for me, that's all I can say...
