"Oh god" I hear you cry, "not another fucking New years resolutions post"...am I right?
I did think before I was about to write this that I will probably bore all my readers to death with this however I think its healthy to make a note of your goals wether it's on your phone,on paper, on your blog or even social platforms it's a good thing to do. (Also I need a nice easy post to write to get me back into the swing of things after the holidays) I am making this post solely for myself to look back on but if some of you enjoy it then we've killed two birds with one stone.
Oh and Happy New Year by the way.
Without further ado here's what I want to achieve in 2017:
+ GET OUTSIDE MORE
I remember as a child I used to be outside 99% of the time, we didn't have computers, phones or ten tonne of toys and looking back now I have days where I wish that was still the case, as much as I love the internet it can really suck you in and control your life. In 2017 I want to get outside more, go for walks, explore new places, even walk to the shops rather than driving, I think we take the great outdoors for granted in this day and age and I feel it's time to appreciate the real world, not spend hours ogling some girl on Instagram that is better looking than us and wishing we had her life.
+ GET MY BODY BACK
Yawwwwn!! You hear this every January I know, but I mean it this time. I've got to a stage where I feel uncomfortable in my clothes and it's time to get back to the size I used to be. I think getting comfortable in life isn't always the best, for e.g.: I have been with Paul for 3 years now and have been that relaxed that I haven't even noticed myself putting weight on, he doesn't care but I know in myself that I'm not healthy (and my stomach hangs over my jeans) and want to change it up in 2017. (Plus I'm a bridesmaid for two weddings this year and want to look marginally decent not like a giant slug).
+ DON'T WORRY
I'm such a worrier, always have been and unfortunately probably always will be, usually over stupid things and things out of my control, I've learnt in 2016 that it gets you nowhere and usually turns out better than you thought in the long run anyway so in 2017 my aim is to sit back, chill out and let things happen naturally without being a big fucking baby about everything all the time.
+ WORK FOR MYSELF
I've always dabbled in and out of jobs and completely and utterly hated working for someone else and big companies just so I can line their pockets with more money than mine, I'm one of those annoying people that hate being told what to do and take everything to heart so am a total pain in the arse to employ i'll admit, however I have taken it upon myself to go full time into blogging with an exciting project on the side which I will update you on when it launches. 2017 will require a lot of work, time and effort but I cant wait as its all off my own back and I'm so proud of how it's all coming together.
We all know the feeling in the pit of our stomachs when we look at our online banking and see how bloody skint we are and the realisation that we saved next to fuck all last year...yeah? I know for sure that I need to start saving, wether it's for an emergency, to fund travel, pay bills, whatever it is, these days it's absolutely necessary. I will be making a conscious effort to save in 2017. (and hopefully have a banging holiday at some point).
So those are just a few of my New year resolutions, if i'm completely honest I come up with a new one every day, but these are the top 5 things I want to conquer in 2017.
What are your resolutions? How will you go about keeping them?
