5 Goals for 2018

2018 is going to be my year. It’s time to start focusing on myself and discovering my passions. It’s going to be about finding myself again, and focusing on ways to be a better, more happier, me. It’s time I hold myself accountable for my thoughts, feelings, and general attitude about life.

#1 Be more grateful

The past couple years have been rather tough. From all the curveballs life has thrown me, to suffering from mental health, and chronic illness, it’s time for me to focus on bettering myself. It’s time I become more thankful for all the great things that life has given me. 

My plan is to write down three things I’m grateful for everyday. For me, it’s about enjoying the little things in life.

#2 Get healthier

Just like everyone else, right? Clearly this is easier said than done, especially when you add my physical limitations in.  On top of this, I’m the pickiest eater on the planet. This is going to be one of my more challenging goals. Over the past couple years, I’ve stopped eating Chicken Nuggets everyday, but clearly, it hasn’t helped my weight. 

My plan is to achieve this by going to the gym to swim. I’ve always been a fish, but swimming to lose weight? This should be interesting… (I’m open for any tips). My goal is to also give up sweets for 2 weeks, and then again for 30 days… Let’s see if my sweet tooth can survive….

#3 Learn new skills

I’ve always enjoyed writing, but this year I want to take this to a whole new level. I want to learn calligraphy. I’ve always loved the look, so why not learn how to do it myself? I’ve also want to learn how to write with my left hand. I’m ambidextrous in many things in life, or favor my left hand verse my right. 

I’m grateful for any tips, tricks, or ideas for new skills to learn.

#4 Enjoy some me time

I love to read, and over the past year or so, I’ve gotten so busy with life that I no longer have time to myself. It’s time to find time for myself again. It’s time to learn to not let life pass you by, or get to busy to enjoy time for me. 

My goal is to read 30 books. My favorite books are romance novels, & I’m always open to suggestions/authors!

#5 Building my blog

Only seems fitting right? Third time’s a charm right? I want to grow my blog, my social media presence, better my website, & gain followers. (Anyone have website building skills and want to help a girl out?)

My goal is hefty, with one post a week. My followers goal? I’ll share when I reach it!

Though I’ve set more specific goals that I’d love to reach, these are the general goals I want to achieve in 2018. Now it’s your turn to help and keep me on track (insert winking smirk face). 18 goals for 2018, what could go wrong? (Everything, but we’e going to give it a go!)
