January in review

So here we are, at the end of the longest month of the year and I can, for once, say that I had a really good January. It all had to do with how I started the year off – with a completely new mindset, positivity pumping through my veins and a new found passion – this blog and my Instagram account.

For my month in review posts I plan on sharing anything worth mentioning, whether it’s good or bad. Luckily this month it is going to be mostly good and I am honestly really grateful for that.

So without further ado, here is my month in review (rhyming like a boss)

In January 2018…

I FOUND MY CALLING (I THINK)

When I started Kandidly Kerry it was intended to be a place where I could just share what I was feeling because writing or talking my way through things helps me. But it has become so much more than that now. I have gotten so much support and so many of you who are exactly where I was a few short months ago and I realised I want to try my best to help all of you. I have always felt like I was meant to do something meaningful, I can’t really explain it, but I just have that feeling and I think that I have finally found that thing, my thing, and I can’t think of anything more meaningful than helping women who I can relate to on so many levels.

I DID MY FIRST SPONSORED POST

This is not a brag, it is something I am excited about because every content creator wants to be recognized in some way and when a large company reaches out to you because of your content, you know you are on the right track.

I MADE SO MANY BEAUTIFUL FRIENDS ONLINE

I have found so many kind, beautiful, strong and creative women online who I really connect with and who are supporting everything I do which is the best feeling in the world.

I CONNECTED REALLY DEEPLY WITH SOMEONE IRL

It’s not often that you meet someone who just gets you, who you feel comfortable to say anything to and who you aren’t embarrassed to let into your dirty home (guys, I was hella lazy last week and I won’t even deny it).

I MADE A LOT OF DECISIONS

Big and small, short term and long term. Decision making is something I really struggle with because I never want to make the wrong one, but I put on my granny panties and made some.

MY DAD IS GOING FOR ANOTHER BRAIN SCAN

This is possibly the only negative in January and it’s a biggie. My dad has a brain tumor. He has had numerous operations on it but they have never been able to remove it completely. This is something I really struggle with and is also something I want to write about one day because it hasn’t been easy but he is so full of positivity and courage that his story can teach us all something.

I’M GOING TO TAKE A COURSE

I have been toying with the idea for a while. I want to learn more and now that I have “found my calling” I know exactly what it is that I want to study. I might even be enrolling this week so more on that to come soon.

What has happened for you in January? Has it been good? Bad?

  1. You brag about that sponsored post all you want!! It’s kind of validation that you’re on the right track for sure?!

    Will pray your dad gets good news from his scans…even that you’re trying to turn into something positive. You’re really such a beautiful soul

    1. Haha, thank you so much. That’s exactly it. Validation!
      Thank you so much, your prayers will be much appreciated. He goes on Thursday so I am very nervous but hoping and praying for good news.
      And thank you for that compliment I am trying really hard to see things in a different light, mostly a bright light and not the dark one that makes everything seem overwhelming and impossible to deal with. xx

  2. You really had such an amazing January and I’ve loved connecting with you on Instagram. Don’t ever underestimate the power of speaking your truth has to the Instagram community – I’ve personally been touched and encouraged! And finding your calling / passion is just the most fulfilling thing. I’m so sorry to hear about your dad, please keep us updated and will be thinking and praying for him.
    Looking forward to hearing about the course
    xx

    1. Thank you darling. I have loved connecting with you as well. You just seem like such a gentle soul. I am so glad to hear that I have had some sort of hand in helping you.
      It really is, I am so excited to see what the future has in store for me now that it all seems clear.
      Thank you for the prayers for my dad, they are much needed and appreciated.
      I will definitely be blogging about the course xx
