I don’t tend to make new year resolutions, mainly because I know I won’t stick to them for longer than 5 days. I’ve always been that way inclined.. to give up that is. This year I’m setting myself achievable goals and some very personal goals for the year and for years to come. It’s now the 1st January and I wanted to share with you why and what I’m hoping to change for 2017.
I want to be more creative.
Ever since leaving my college days behind over 2 years ago, I’ve felt as though I lost a huge part of me. I loved college and studying art. It was a breath of fresh air to walk in to our studio at Kendal College and be totally inspired by all the creative students I worked alongside with every single day. I miss that, which is one of the main reasons for creating my blog back in June 2016.
I want to focus.
Someone once told me that I was very ‘happy go lucky’ and that stuck in my mind for a number of reasons really. Mainly because it made me feel as though I had no ambition and I didn’t particularly care much for my future and at the time that was probably half true. I didn’t try much at anything I did and I always believed that what would be would be which I still do believe in strongly, however, recently I’ve learnt that those that work hard get the most out of life so I’m aiming for a successful year, financially and career wise.
I want to learn Thai.
How many times have I said that over the year?! Every single month I’ve said, “i’ll start next month” but this time I mean business and I have promised myself I will start by February.
I want to be more healthy and active.
Since I posted about transforming my lifestyle, not much has changed. It’s been a big build up to christmas and all I’ve done is eaten, drank and slept for a good 3 weeks. I’ve never been a fussy eater, in fact I’ll eat anything even if I’m not hungry. My gran always tells me that I’ll wake up the size of a house one day with the amount of food I eat.
I want to see more
I love exploring and I love returning to places I’ve been before. I want to visit at least 3 new places in 2017 and see more of the UK, particularly London which I’m hoping to visit for the start of Winter for some retail therapy and ice skating at the natural history!
And finally, cutting back on buying unnecessary spending.
Ugh, where do I start. This is probably going to be the toughest new years resolution for me as I’m an absolute nightmare for online shopping! But with bills to pay shortly (more to be revealed on that), I’m going to have to stop.
What are your new years resolutions and why?
