I’m a bit late to the party on this one but it’s taken me a few slow mornings to get back into the swing of things, anyone else?
I love a good new year resolution, a new chance to set fresh goals and aims; I find it more motivating and refreshing to have something new to aim for.
Having said that I won’t be too disheartened if I don’t fully achieve all I set out to in 2019, they’re more milestones for the future and any progress through 2019 will help me in the long run.
Another Big Trip…
At least once a year I try to plan a big trip because I never know when the opportunity to travel to these places will come up again. Last year it was Japan and I absolutely loved it there, so at the start of February my sister and I are off to America to spent 9 days in Miami and New York City! NYC is my absolute favourite place and every time I visit I fall more in love with the city, I’m hoping to revisit current faves but to try so much more. Never been to Miami but the weather is meant to be hot, hot, hot and I am beyond ready for some sun.
See Friends More Often…
I’m sure we’re all guilty of getting into our own little routine throughout the year, and it’s hard to break that mould everyday – to make time for loved ones or friends you don’t often see. This year I want to make a conscious effort to visit friends, plan trips away and reply to people without saying ‘sorry I’ve been so busy’ at the start of each text message.
A few smaller goals to get on board with…
– Get out of bed and start the day at least 1 hour earlier than normal
– Get fit and healthy in time for my sisters wedding in November
– Read before bed
– Stress less
– Be more committed to the blog
– Save money
– Practise self-care
– Drink less fizzy pop
– Adopt a new photography style
– Create more
Last year I planted all the seeds for my freelance business to grow and I am hoping that this year my career goals become more permeant!
I’m a perfectionist with every piece of work I do and it’s hard to ever think something I do is good enough, this year I want to make a conscious effort to remind myself that what I’m producing is okay, to put less pressure on myself and to stop being a perfectionist. I have so many ideas and huge projects I want to get onboard with, I need to have more faith and go for it.
Do More Of What Makes Me Happy…
This one is a big thing for me, last year I got myself very worked up over various different things that I didn’t necessarily want to do in the first place. But as I hate to let people down, I inevitably say yes to a lot of things. I need to remind myself that actually it’s okay to say no to going out one night, or to a job / event I don’t want to do. This year I only want to do the things that make me happy.
Do you have any new year resolutions, goals or ambitions?
