Okay so I know we’re already nearly half way through February (I mean seriously, WHEN did that happen?!), but I thought it would make sense to christen my blog with a post all about my goals and aims for the next 11 or so months.
I’m seriously excited about 2017. There are some amazing things happening and I’ve got something big planned for every month until November. It’s going to be mad busy (and expensive) but I can’t wait to see what’s 2017 has in store for me.
On to my goals for this year then…
This year, I want to travel. And travel to places I’ve never been to before. I’ve already got two trips to two new places planned for a couple of Hen Weekends but I really want to book in at least one other trip. Dubrovnik is high on my list as it New York but with the crazy year I’ve got planned, NYC may have to wait *sobs*.
My boyfriend, James, will be the first to tell you that I am THE most stressy, highly-strung person in the world. I’m a huge worrier and always sweat the small stuff. This year, I want to take more time to step back and focus on my mind set. It’s time to stop finding things to stress over, and just enjoy the exciting things this year has to offer.
3. Switch Off
I work as a Social Media Manager so spend all day on Facebook. I then come home and scroll through Twitter and Instagram ALL night. A huge goal for this year is to switch off – literally – in the evenings. After dinner, put our phones away and curl up with a film (or Pokemon which we’re currently binge watching on Netflix – sorry not sorry). This is something that I think will definitely help with mind set too.
When you hit a certain age (hello, Grandma), it can be so hard to maintain your relationships. The girls you spent your uni days with are now, like you, high-flying career women who’re loved up and own their own homes. I’m super proud of all my friends, but this year I want to make more time for them. Life and jobs get in the way sometimes, but I want to dedicate plenty of time to my girls.
This year we have seven weddings to go to and a whole load of other amazing things in the pipeline. My main goal for 2017 is just to enjoy every. single. second. I want to take make some amazing memories and look back on this year as the best one ever.
Those are my goals for this year. What are yours?
