 I want to own my own home within the next few years, but I also want to be able to do at least one decent push-up!”

When I was younger, I didn’t have a very high opinion of myself.

I wasn’t worthy of having nice hair, nice clothes, a nice boyfriend. The error of judgement meant that I spent NO time or money on my most important investment – which is, myself.

This year, I decided I was taking time for me.

I was going to take the time to paint my nails, even if that meant the dishes don’t get done straight away. I like how put together I feel with a fresh manicure. I’m going to go to yoga, because it’s something I’ve always wanted to try, and I like having an hour away from my phone. I was also going to invest a little more in the clothes that I buy.

I may have fewer things now than ever before, but, I’m madly in love with every piece knowing that the fit is great and most importantly- it makes me feel great.

I’m also making a conscious effort to appreciate the small things- a really crisp sunny day and a long lie in bed to name a few.

It may only be February but I’m already reaping the benefits of my new mindset. I feel like I’m a woman who can. I can chase my dreams, no matter how big or small! For example, I want to own my own home within the next few years, but I also want to be able to do at least one decent push-up!

BEING Young & Twenty is about taking time for yourself to figure out what makes you happy and going for it.
