#BreakFree from Worrying

 For my birthday Dan got me a magazine subscription for Marie Claire. I was SO excited when the first issue finally arrived this weekend, and it definitely didn't disappoint. One of my favourite pieces in the magazine was about their campaign for 2016. The #breakfree campaign, which is all about woman speaking out about the things that they want to break free from this year, and in the future, in order to feel like we are fulfilling our full potentials. They had some incredible ambassadors wanting to break free from issues facing women all across the UK, and the world.


 This campaign really got me thinking. What do I want to break free from? What is holding me back? I've decided. I want to #breakfree from worrying. It's something I've always struggled with, in my relationships, friendships and work. 2016 is the time to stop worrying, because it's truly holding me back. Despite improving recently, I've got a long way to go and this campaign has inspired me to do so. Worrying has held me back for far too long, and it's time for change.

 In my work, I'm constantly worrying about messing up, that I constantly question what I am doing. Worrying knocks my confidence in my performance, and this is something that needs to change. I am capable of writing an essay and getting a decent grade. I have a degree to show for this. I am capable of going into work, and making no mistakes, or very minor ones if I do. With friends, and family, I'm always worrying that I've said the right thing. If I drink, I have the worst day the next day constantly worrying what I've said or done to embarrass myself, when 99% of the time I've just had fun. I've had enough of worrying, and this year is my year to combat it, with a little inspiration from Marie Claire.

I'm so pleased that I read the article about the campaign. I'm officially starting 2016 on a fantastic, and positive note. My first piece of action is definitely going to be a worry journal. If I can write down my worries, I've had a release of them, I'm hoping this will help me to leave my worries in my book, and go out and do the things I want to achieve. Worrying makes me doubt and question my abilities, and I'm fed up. I'm ready to push my worries aside!

What do you want to break free from in 2016? Have you read the Marie Claire article? If not, you can read more here.

  1. I love this post! Worrying is one of the worst things as it has the ability to make you feel like you can't control it. You just have to remember that you are actually the one in control. Focus on the fun! x

    1. It definitely doesn't - it can be SO hindering. If I'd let my worrying get the better of me I wouldn't have had good news at work this week because I'd have said no! XX

  4. Writing a worry journal is a great idea. Worries always seem smaller and more manageable when you see it written down and you can tackle it head on. I haven't come across Marie Claire's breakfree campaign but it sounds like something that we could all do with at some point in our lives.

    1. Yes that's so true, and it's a release. If it's down on paper sometimes it doesn't seem as big, and more realistic to be able to tackle. It's a really great campaign, very inspiring, I'd definitely recommend having a read! X
