Christmas is brilliant, but I think everybody loves they New Year. Whether you love having the opportunity to start afresh, plan new adventures, or just get a bit schlozzled, it’s one of those opportunities that can’t be beat. I personally can’t wait to see what 2017 has in store for me and I love the idea of a whole New Year ahed of me with no mistakes or sadness in it yet. An opportunity to learn from this year and try again on the things that didn’t go to plan. I saw this tag on alittlereadersblog.com, and I couldn’t resist trying it out myself-read to the end to see who I’ve tagged!
This time next year, I will have…
1. Moved Out!
As much as I love my family, I am so ready to move out and hopefully it will have happened in a year (or at least, I’ll be about to move, or looking at places to move into!) I don’t want it to be a pipe dream anymore, I need to spread my wings!
I’ll achieve this by: Working with my boyfriend to save money-less Nando’s😩 and maybe even monetising my various side hustles. Mo’ money mo’ money. (No, seriously, I need more money😭😂)
2. Be working with brands regularly on my blog: Since my blog started a couple of months ago it’s grown more than I expected, and I’d love this to continue! I’d like to work with brands more in a year and develop my own little corner of the internet.
How: Approach brands more! Don’t be nervous in asking for what you want, and don’t give up just because things take a bit of hard work and elbow grease. Persistence and confidence are key (WAY easier said than done.)
3. Be healthier: I know this is a sort of obvious one and it’s what people always say in January, but further than drinking more water and eating better I want to be healthier in my mind and my body. I need to prioritise this and good things will come.
How: take time for myself, learn to say no when I need to. Pursue the things I love and get support when I need it. And, yeah, drink a bit more water.
In 2016 I tried to take on way too much and I ended up not achieving all the things i wanted to achieve, and I burned myself out too. This year I’m going to live life a bit slower, take each day and each new opportunity as it comes, and continue to work consistently hard, but without expecting too much of myself. Where would you like to be in a year?
I tag the following bloggers to do this post-I hope you’ve got all the success you deserve in a year!
