Happy New Year All!
I know so many people make ‘goals’ or ‘resolutions’ for new year and very rarely stick to them, but I think its such a fun thing to do.
My plan with this post is to write it now, on January 1st, then at the end of the year, I’ll look back and see how far I’ve come. Chances are, I’ll only have stuck to one or two out of the 10 I’ve chosen… but who knows, maybe we could see a miracle evolve right before our very eyes!
1. Do less online shopping
I’m sorry boohoo but I just can’t shop the same way I did last year… you’ve had far too much of my earnings in 2019, this relationship has to stop.
2. Save more
My big plans to save 4K last year in my LISA reaaaallllly didn’t go to plan, so this year, with much smaller goals, I want to get saving (I guess if no.1 happens, hopefully this one will too…).
My plan for this is to do the penny per day thingy… it seems like a lot but instead of doing it each day, I want to do it monthly. The math may not work out completely accurate but it will be as close as I can possibly get it.
3. Have Less Regrets
I heard this somewhere a couple weeks ago and felt it was the perfect fit for me.
I don’t want to look back on things I said no to and think “I wish’. Obviously, that doesn’t mean saying yes to absolutely everything, because there will be things I know I really don’t want to do, and I won’t push myself. But I want to be able to look back at the fond memories I’ve made through the year.
4. Spend more time with friends
I’m not going to lie, one thing I’ve learnt this year is how to love spending time by myself, something I used to hate.
I kind of went from one extreme to the other and so this year, I’m going to actively make more time for my friends, those who make similar effort with me.
5. Make sure I have time for myself
Keeping with the same theme… I don’t want to put aside time for myself. It’s all about balance. I like to have at least one week, one every other week at the very least, to myself. Having a long hot bath, doing a face mask, reading a book, a self-care night. I want to continue with this, along with seeing friends.
The only thing. I need to do differently is not put myself on such a strict routine.
For some reason, towards the end of this year, I struggled whenever my routine was thrown off, I would get so worked up and couldn’t cope if what I had planned meant ‘cancelling’ on my ‘me night’ – I don’t want that to be the case anymore so I’m going to work hard to find the perfect balance.
6. Put more effort into the things I love
Reading, Blogging, YouTube.
I want to make sure I put time aside to do each of these things, but without the strict schedule that puts me off. Doing more of things you love only fills you with happiness.
7. Get to a place where I’m completely happy.
I’m truly loving life at the moment.
I’m content in my life of being a little old lady with a deep love of Corrie, A Mummies girl and a foodie, but there are some aspects of myself I want to work on.
I have come so far in this last year and have worked really hard on getting my mental health in tact. I want to keep working on controlling my anxiety, and I also want to get into a good routine with the gym and my pole fitness, so that I can get to a healthy stage where I love my body.
This by no way means I want to lose weight and I definitely won’t be weighing myself because I think this causes more of a negative mentality than good, but I want to get to a place where I am happy with my mirror image and photos of myself.
8. Prove myself at work
I absolutely love my job and this year I really want to work hard and prove myself.
9. KEEP MY ROOM TIDY!!!
This is probably one I’ll struggle with the most but I can honestly say that when my room is tidy, I like to keep it that way. The only issue is that the second it starts to look just a tiny bit messy, I give up trying because, well, its already a mess so why bother…
This is one thing I need to get over and actually keep my room tidy, it makes me so much happier when it is.
10. Become more independent
Don’t laugh mum & dad… its true!!!
I want to save more so I can buy a house and move out, but that will be too big of a shock to the system if i don’t learn to become more independent from now. I can already cook and clean, its just the latter that I NEVER do. I want to prove to everyone that I’m not immature, that i can look after myself and don’t rely on my parents for everything… it’s no good saying it if you’re not going to prove it, so that is exactly what I’m going to do!!!
2020… be good to me ❤️
