2018 GOALS


So 2017 has ended, last night I made a 'Year in Review' insta story and it made me realise how much I had done in 2017 and as you can see in my last vlog, I didn't get off to the best start. I definitely did not set any goals, yet still achieved so much!! So I thought this year I would start off with making some.

Write down all the fun/ happy things which happen and put them in a big jar to look back on at the end of this year. I saw this idea last year on Pinterest and was meaning to do it throughout 2017 but of course days past into weeks and months and before I knew it it was too late to start so.....I'm going to try to do it this year!

Start a job or venture which I'm excited about In Summer I will be free and I can't wait! It will be the first time in my life (I will be 24 by then) that I will be able to actually decide whatever I want to do and go wherever I want without feeling like I should/have to do something. What I mean is, since sixth form my life has followed the path along the lines of I should go to University, I should live in this city, I have to get this work experience, I need to get this qualification and I need to spend the next 3 years doing ......etc. So for as long as I can remember, I've felt extremely helpless in terms of life decisions so it will be great to finally have that freedom in Summer.

Fitness All throughout last year I was super into health and fitness, I went to the gym and worked out almost every single day, ate so healthily and knew all about the latest food trends and health benefits behind them. #chiaseeds #gingershots #vegan However, for the last few months I have been so so busy that I haven't been able to keep up with it....and then Christmas happened and I will say no more. But it's normal to treat yourself at Christmas hehe. Anyway I'm going to get fully back into health and fitness again because it makes me feel so much better!!

YouTube/ Insta/ Blog Last Summer I finally started my YouTube account, something which I have been wanting to do literally for years! I spent most of Summer filming, editing and working out YouTube, although I don't have too many subs or views, I love it and would love for my channel to continue to grow in 2018. I also love Instagram, scrolling through, getting inspo, quotes, book recommendations, fashion ideas etc. as well as posting my own pics, insta stories, picking filters and all that fun stuff. I reached 1k just before midnight. I hope to be able to grow my Insta account and would love 10k by the end of the year. Finally, I have been on/off blogging for years and it's taken me a while to find the ideal layout and work everything out. Now that that's acceptable, I also want to continue growing my blog.

Continue with Counselling/ Self Care At the beginning of the year I started counselling and find it so so helpful! I've also had bad anxiety for the last few months and have been referred to CBT which starts at the end of January. Before starting counselling, I never even considered anything like that before. In 2017 I realised how important it is to practise self care and just take a break from life sometimes, especially when it all just seems too much. Therefore, this year I want to make sure to take time out for myself, to work on my anxiety and happiness.

Do things which I love I absolutely love singing, reading, YouTube/ Insta, walking in the country, going to the cinema, going out for food, cooking, baking and fitness. Unfortunately when things get hectic, it's the things you love that are the first to be sacrificed and consequently I haven't been able to do these things nearly half as much as I would have wanted. I want to be able to make these things a regular occurrence in 2018.

What are your goals for 2018?
