Happy 2019 Everyone!
I honestly can not believe how fast this past year just flew by. I swear 2018 is a slight blur, I did my best to quickly recap the year! Missed my 2018 recap, you can read it here
But I don’t know about you but I am so excited for a new year & some new opportunities!
On that note, this year I am going to do something slightly different. Last year I made a list of goals in January & posted each month how each the last month went, along with giving a short update on my life. This year, I’ll keep the monthly updates, & all that juicy gossip going on in my life (just call me gossip girl, kidding, don’t), but also since I will be posting these at the beginning of the month, I’d like to list what I want to get out of the upcoming month & see how that goes! But this year, I don’t really want to set ‘goals’ or ‘resolutions’ for this year. This month, since we’ve already had a few updates & what not recently, we’ll just have to try the new format idea in February.
But I have a few things I am writing down for 2019 & putting out there, hoping they’ll come true. I have already spent so much time adding events & appointments into my calendar, got my budget sheet all ready for the year, organized my 2018 stuff for my taxes already, & I feel like I can keep this list going, I am ready to see how everything unfolds & start the year on a strong foot & totally prepared.
Why not make some!
- Post 2 blog posts a week!
- Make some more blogging connections
- Hopefully connect & meet-up with some bloggers in the Toronto area.
Well, where do I begin. Despite a busy schedule ahead, I plan on living a more balanced life this year when it comes to my work/life balance.
- Start using my LinkedIn for posts (re: events I attended, etc)
- Delegate tasks, take some work off my plate
- Network, network, network.
I know I mentioned I didn’t want to set ‘goals’ this year, I would like to just update on life & mention things here & there that I would like to accomplish. But the basic ‘goals’ or ‘resolutions’:
- Read 50 books – read 4 books a month
- Start taking budgeting seriously, again…
- Save money where I can
- Get rid of clutter
- Stay true to my beliefs
- Keep a gratitude journal
- Start going to church again
- Take more pictures…
- Believe in myself!
Personally I love setting fitness goals. Fitness has always been a huge part of my life, I love feeling my muscles burning, pushing myself to see what my body is capable of.
- Fuel my body properly & nutritiously
- Learn to cook healthier meals for myself
- Stay consistent with my running schedule
- Stretch daily
- Invest in my health – no more excuses get the massage you need, etc.
- Drink more water!
My main focus for the year ahead is to just be me & be happy. I don’t want to feel like i’m in a corner or stuck doing something I dislike.
I feel like I have some big plans for this year!
Do you have any ‘goals’ or ‘resolutions’ for 2019?
