New Year's Resolutions.

I don't usually bother with resolutions for the year ahead for one simple reason: Most people make silly unrealistic goals that they'll never reach...especially not within a year! I know I am in this group of people so a while ago I stopped making them.

But this year I was thinking about targets for the next year ahead and the place I want to be when I look back at the end of 2015.

I have chosen some reachable goals that I will try my hardest to stick to.

  1. Do more of what makes me happy. It sounds so simple but I spend an awful lot of my life pleasing other people and forgetting that it's my life at the end of the day. 
  2. Blog whenever I can. I have really enjoyed writing and creating posts for this blog and in the coming year, I aim to post frequently and expand my audience.  
  3. Grow. Of course I don't mean upwards...or outwards (which is more than likely to happen whether I want it to or not) I mean in myself. I want many things to grow like my confidence, sense of self worth, much. 
  4. Keep busy. I want to expand my hobbies and find something that I love to do and stick with it. 
  5. Take every day as it comes. I need to stop dwelling and worrying. It doesn't do me any good (clearly). 
  6. Keep my friends close. I have so many supportive, caring people around me that have been there for me through thick and thin. I hope that in the next year I can pay them back for everything they've done and be there for them like they are for me. 
  7. Cry less. I have spent/wasted way too many tears in 2014. That's where I intend to leave them.
  8. Take risks. This is a big one for me. I like security and I don't like change but I've realized that It's going to happen whether I want it to or not so I might as well go with it. That may have been easy to type but it will be very hard to put it into action.

That's it. The 8 things I want to achieve in 2015.
My advice to anyone making resolutions is to be realistic. If you set goals that are too drastic and require too much change then all you'll do is feel rubbish at the end of the year when you think you haven't achieved anything.
Be reasonable.

Happy New Year
