Goodbye 2018, Hello 2019.

on , in:
So December is on its way out.. and I really hope you all had a lovely Festive break, regardless of how you celebrate it (or don’t). As the year draws to an end, it’s often a time of reflection, right? I could go into the highs of the year (and yeah, some pretty awesome stuff has happened this year) and I could go into the lows, but I don’t quite want to open up to the whole world, just yet.
But here are a few things I’ve learnt from 2018:
  • Hold onto the people you love, spend time with them and let them know just how awesome you think they are
  • See places and do things that excite you
  • Don’t give up. Keep trying- even if it does take weeks, months or even years
  • Gratitude- always be grateful for the good in your life
  • Don’t take good health for granted
  • Don’t over challenge yourself
  • You are worth so much more than your productivity
This leads on to potential goals for 2019. So, do I have any goals for 2019? The answer is: no.
 
This year, I will not be setting goals for myself. I realised that I have always set myself targets, goals or aims. Whilst these can be beneficial, I want a break away from always trying to achieve something or meeting a perceived set of criteria of how I should be. I don’t want to live in a constant battle with my brain.  I just want to be the happiest I can be. I do think, that by removing goals, I will enjoy life more. Because life is precious and I want to make my life an enjoyable one. I don’t want to force myself to do things I don’t necessarily want to do. So whilst I don’t have goals as such, there are some reminders I want to live by this year:
  • Be kind, always
  • Spend more time with the people I care for
  • Explore more
  • Look after my health and don’t take it for granted
  • Find happiness even during the dark days
  • Read often because it makes you feel good
  • Cycle/yoga/ blog only when I want too
  • Eat well (this includes those crisps, cakes, pizzas and burgers)

Please be kind to yourself this year and I’m wishing you all a happy and joyful 2019.
