Hopes & Dreams of 2018

Another year over, a new one just begun

That’s right, another year has flown by and we are just around the corner of beginning 2018, scary right? I don’t know about you, but every year I will say ‘wow, this year has gone so quick!’ I always say it, and actually think each year gets quicker and quicker.

Because it’s another year, of course I am writing my hopes and goals for 2018. I love writing these kinds of posts as I like to look back on the year to see if I have achieved what I had planned, if not, to see if I was anywhere close. So here are my hopes & goals of 2018.

Something big is happening…I know this will be totally annoying, but something big is happening next year, I reckon in Feb. So keep tuned for updates and announcements, I am super excited for this and hope you will be too!

Take better care of my body. I have decided to not make one of my goals to lose X amount of weight, but instead to just take better care of my body. I am actually going to cancel my gym membership next year at some point as it is reallllly expensive and I just can’t justify spending that much each month on a gym. Instead I just want to keep an eye on what I am eating, take Wilma (our gorgeous pup) on long walks and just take proper good care of my body bit more, and actually think about my health too.

Family & Friends. This is a really important one for me. I am going to make a lot more effort to see my friends and family more. Life is too short, so you need to make the most of the close people around you. My aim is to spend more quality time together, put dates in the diary maybe a month in advance, then you know for sure it’s going to happen and it probably won’t be cancelled as it has been planned for a few weeks. 

Money. This is also up there. Money for me is going to be so important in the next year, I need to keep track of what I am spending. My problem is buying lots of little things, and without realising I have spend £50 on absolutely nothing. So I am going to keep a better eye on my money and spending – this is super important. 

Think more about myself. So this might seem strange, or selfish. But I am that person who always tried to make everyone else happy around me, even if it makes me stressed out or in an uncomfortable situation. If I don’t like something, or don’t want to do something, I am not going to do it. I need to think more about myself and my wants/needs, and probably just say no more. 

Work hard. The last goal for 2018, is to work hard. This is both at my full time job, and my blogging&youtube life at home. I really want to up my game with my blogging and youtube. I think I said this last year, but it didn’t really happen which makes me so sad! I am a bit annoyed at myself for this, but this year I am going to make it happen. I have lots of exciting content that will be coming (linked to point one!) I want to also work hard in my job. I need o keep going and work hard to help myself with my future career.

So there you have it my hopes & goals of 2018. I really hope these happen, and I can’t wait to announce the big news which will be coming soon!

I wish you all the best for 2018 and hope it’s your year.

Love always, G x
