I have never really been one to make new years resolutions as I never stick to them nor do I even remember what they were in the first place. Instead this year I have set myself some goals that I would like to complete over 2017.
At the end of 2016 I decided that this year is going to be the year of ME. I was feeling really optimistic about whats to come in 2017 and decided that its about time I focus on me and doing things for me. Over the last year, I spent a lot of time working towards finishing my degree which involved a hell of a lot of hard work and very little time for myself. 2016 was the year of hard work, no money and being released into the big world of work BUT 2017 is the year of enjoyment and making lots of memories.
My 2017 Goals
I have an array of different goals that I want to achieve this year some are easier than others but Im up for a challenge!
Finish my Invisalign treatment
If you have followed me for a while you may know that I have Invisalign. I really don’t talk about it that much as I prefer to just keep it on the down low…not that I have a problem with anyone knowing but I’m not that girl that shouts about these type of things. Any who I am currently 1/4 of the way through my treatment and at the beginning on April I will have completed all 20 aligners. I may possibly have to have a few more but we’ll deal with that one when we get to it. I am super excited to finish my Invisalign treatment and I cannot wait to see my teeth when they’re straight. Watch this space!
Pass my driving test
This is something I have been working on for a while but its safe to say its taking me longer than the average person to learn to drive. Im not overly fussed by it but I want to be able to drive. I am definitely close to getting there and I WILL pass this year, thats for certain. When that will be, I have no idea but hopefully it wont take me all year.
Work on my blog
Over the last 6 months or so I have really enjoyed working on my blog and it keeps my mind busy which is really important for me as my job isn’t the most challenging of jobs and I am definitely the type of person who needs a challenge to develop. My blog is something which is getting better and better and I’m understanding better ways to do things and taking photos is easier. Im loving it though and I just want to keep going throughout this year. Hopefully I will be able to bring you some interesting different content as I am planning to do a lot this year as it is the year of ME after all.
Don’t let in the F*ck boys
Its safe to say over 2016 there is definitely a fair few f*ck boys thats have made their way into my life or even come back into my life and it never ends well…. Ever. Its easier said than done to say that I will stay away from the f*ck boys but I can give it good old go. I have had far too many moments which have made me feel like I’m not worthy and I am not letting myself think that anymore. I am worth it and I am going to have a fabulous year for me.
Say YES to more things
Im not one to say no to things especially if it involves my friends but I really want to enjoy this year so I just want to take every opportunity I can. The way I am going to do that is to say YES so that is a task I’m going to try and complete. Sometimes I chose not to do something because of how tired I will end up being or because its a lot of money or because pure laziness but those are such crap excuses and I need to be more adventurous. You’re only young once.
Enjoy myself as much as possible
As I have said in the previous goals, I really just want to have a good year and enjoy it. Making plans and memories is exactly the way to do that. I do usually have quite a lot of fun, so more plans and more fun is in order I think.
Find a Job I Enjoy
Something you may or may not know is that I currently work at Topshop as a Sales assistant which I weirdly enjoy and I never ever in a million years expected myself to say. Im surrounded by some of the loveliest people. I want to work my way up to a team leader role at work as I think that will be where the challenges lie and where I can really challenge myself but at the same time I’m eager to get to London and work in the big city. I have wanted to do that since I graduated but its not as easy as it seems. So for the moment I’m stay at Topshop which I do enjoy so I have kind of already ticked this one off but we’ll see where this year takes me in terms of work!
What are your 2017 goals? I would love to know as Im up for adding to my list!
P.S. I hope you all had a lovely new year!
