New Year, New Goals…

It’s 2017… whaaaat?! Another year has gone by so quickly and dare i say it but we are already at the end of the first week in January! I really hope you’ve all had a fantastic start to the new year!

It’s been a while since I last wrote a blog post so this feels strange to say the least! So I thought I would start off the year with a post about my new years goals. Yes thats right goals… I refuse to call them ‘resolutions’ because if i’m being honest i’m less likely to stick by them if I label them as ‘resolutions’.

EVERY year around December I start thinking about ‘resolutions’ I want to set for the coming year, and EVERY year by the time January the 3rd comes I have forgotten what these ‘resolutions’ that I set myself were.

This year though I have actually taken the time to think about what goals I want to set myself and why. I have even written them down so I can remind myself. If I can stick to them and improve myself I suppose it will motivate me to look forward and improve on the things I have achieved. HOWEVER if I fail to follow through with them then that gives me the right to feel shitty ¬†about myself and it might remind me why I haven’t bothered to set firm goals in the past …

For now I’ll share a few goals I have chosen to set for myself this year…

Be POSITIVE- because at times (not all the time, but most of the time) I can be SO negative

Be more ADVENTUROUS- I want to say ‘yes’ more because sometimes I miss opportunities to do things or go places because i’m just not that adventurous

Get HEALTHY- I wouldn’t say i’m unhealthy but I could certainly be healthier and i’m not just talking about watching what I EAT I also want to start working out more

COOKING- I LOVE cooking (when I can be bothered) but this year I want to do more of it and experiment with different ingredients and recipes

READING- I used to be a real book worm, but with general life things taking over I don’t think I have picked up and finished reading a book in YEARS, so i’ve decided that needs to change this year… I WILL complete a book!

Just a few I wanted to share …

Let me know, do you have any goals or resolutions for this year? What are they? How do you intend to keep them? Do you generally stick to them? I’d be interested to know.
