The classic saying goes; new year, new me; and usually I internally cringe when I hear this particular phrase being said, however, I can’t help but think about what I want to achieve from 2017. Normally people always set themselves massive goals, but this year, instead of setting myself an unrealistic resolution, like going to the gym, (which I’m only going to abandon by mid May) I have decided to set myself mini, more attainable goals that I know I will succeed at.
- Early Mornings
I’m usually the worst for waking up early when I don’t have anything going on and when I do eventually get out of my bed, I always feel like I have wasted a part of the day. I’m determined to get up early and make the most out of my days, especially on days off or when I don’t start work until later. Although, that being said, the cold, dark mornings are making this quite difficult already.
2. Career Change
Sticking on the theme of work, (bore, I know) I want 2017 to be the year that I finally say goodbye to retail. I actually love where I work and all of the people I work with but I want a Monday- Friday routine and my weekends back, so I can finally have that ‘Friday feeling’.
Bit of a cliche one here, but I’m determined to make 2017 the year of holidays, exploring and mini adventures. I want to go abroad to new places and also explore some of the hidden gems England has to offer. Considering I spent New Years in Scotland, I’d say this one if off to a good start.
It happens to the best of us but towards the end of 2016 I really lost my blogging mojo, but I have a feeling 2017 is going to be my blogs year and I am planning on getting frequent posts up every week.
5. Be Happy
I have decided that 2017 is the year that I step out of my comfort zone more and care less about what others think. This time next year I want to look back and know that I did everything I possibly wanted to do and more and that I was happy. I have so many great people in my life so I’m pretty sure this is going to be an easy one!
What are your goals for 2017?
