It’s the end of another year and 2017 was probs up there with being one of the worst years on a global scale. Like Trump is running America, there have been more terrorist attacks than ever, global warming is getting so much worse, proven by the crazy amounts of natural disasters this year.
Yeah, 2017 was a shitty year for the world, but it wasn’t all completely shitty for me. I started uni which was super exciting, I personally think I upped my blogging game and even got paid for a post, I’ve had very little bad mental health days, passed my A-Levels and more. Obvs it wasn’t all great and there are a few things that didn’t run as smoothly but that’s life for ya!
I’m not gonna focus on the negatives, I’m not even gonna talk about them. I wanna talk about the positives, I wanna address what I did well and what I’m going to do well in 2018 (note that I said ‘going to’ and not ‘hope to’ do- I’m gonna smash this year!!!!).
Everyone sets themselves resolutions for the new year, and I’m no different. The truth is, I love setting myself goals to aim for and achieve. I like to keep my list short and sweet because there’s nothing worse than setting a billion and three goals and them feeling like a failure.
These are some of my goals for 2018…
- Lose weight. I have always struggled with my weight and being confident in my body. I want to lose weight so I’m comfortable in my own skin and feel healthier in my body.
- Take vegetarianism more seriously. I love animals and want to do my part in making the world a less horrible place to live. Atm, I’m like a semi-vegetarian where I eat meat once or twice a week, but I wanna go full on veggie this year.
- Blog more. I think this is on nearly every blogger’s resolution list but I’m serious. I love blogging and I’m gonna go as far to say I’m good at it, so why shouldn’t I put a bit more work in and try get my name out there?
- Breathe and let things go. My temper is like an active volcano- ready to erupt at any moment. Although I am a nice person (I’ve been told this many times) I can be quite wicked when people get on my bad side. I want to get this side under control as I often regret it when I lash out at people. Maybe I’ll trying counting to 10 before I react to something that bothers me.
I feel so much more confident that I’ll smash these goals this year. I feel like 2018 is going to be great (I mean, could the world get any worse after 2017???) and I’m heading into the new year with hope and an open mind.
Have you set yourself some goals for 2018? How was 2017 for you?
Until next time and Happy New Year…
