I think I have written a post like this now for a good few years, and every year stars out well…and then, well it just never happens or I forget to do these things. Well this time around, I am determined to have one of the best years yet!
2019 has been a funny one, they say things come in three’s, and this year I had three things happen in my life which weren’t the happiest of times. Everything is ok now, and those bad things have turned into positives which I am really grateful for. So next year I am hoping for nothing like that to happen in my life again, let me tell you, it was scary!
I already feel like 2020 will be a busy year for me, but a good busy. Me and Ryan have booked our dream holiday at DisneyWorld in Florida in October, and two of my bestest friends are getting married! So 2020 is already looking up for me, and I so excited to start a new year with a fresh mind!
With all of that in mind, I have a few goals and hopes for 2020 that I wanted to share with you, things I really want to focus on this year and actually keep to my word! So here we go…
Find love for my blog again.
I think I said this last year, but it never really happened. So this year it is my goal to really focus on it! I sort of lost my love for blogging over the last couple of years, I took YouTube by the reigns and put all of my focus into that, but I would love to do both! I really enjoyed blogging back in the day and I want to get back into it, my little space on the internet, and I am positive that I will!
Put a bit more effort into myself.
This one might sound a little strange, but I guess it always means have more me time, and put more of an effort into myself. So for example, I love getting my nails done, so why not get them done? The same with eyelashes, and getting my hair done more frequently! I don’t smoke, I don’t drink, so I want to focus on making myself happy a little bit more. This also means just having a bit more me time. I tend to spend my time running around for other people, to make them happy, which I still want to do obviously, but just take it down a notch a little bit. My mum always says to me ‘You never have time to yourself, you’re always doing something!’ So I think I need to chill out a bit and focus on myself more.
Aswell with this, I need to do things which make me happy, which I enjoy, and do them with the people that make me happy. If someone or something isn’t making you happy, why are you doing it?
Yep, it’s on here again. Again, I want to work on my YouTube channel. Before I felt like the key is to upload, upload, upload, whereas now I think I want to make videos really well, which means more time and effort put into filming and editing my videos. We shall see how it goes! I love making YouTube videos, and I don’t think I will stop for a really long time, and I know numbers don’t matter but sometimes it is disheartening when you don’t see the numbers move very much, so I’m going to try and focus on videos which I want to make and put so much effort into them, hopefully others will see that too.
Health and Fitness.
I bet you’re thinking, here we go again. But yes, it’s on here again! I have some important dates in 2020, like two weddings and an amazing holiday, and I want to look the best I’ve ever looked! I know I am fine the way I am now, and I am not doing it for anyone else but me. It would make me feel so amazing and I really want to try and push myself. I have a gym membership, so I want to make the most of it and go and do as much as I can. And be a lot healthier! I have gotten into a routine of certain meals which don’t really involve veggies or much healthiness to be honest. For Christmas we received a slow cooker which I am so excited about, so I really want to experiment with it and other foods too. I am feeling inspired!
I think this will be my last resolution for 2020. This is one I have felt I need to work on for a while. I am someone who loves to make others happy, I hate letting people down and I hate to come across as difficult, but a lot of the time I find myself agreeing to things because I feel pressured, I don’t want to miss out, or I don’t want to upset/disappoint the person who it might be with. I need to focus on me. A lot of it will be to do with money in 2020 – because we already have quite a lot on, which are all expenses, I need to be careful financially. Saying no to things because I can’t afford something isn’t something to be ashamed off. It’s the truth and I’ve made commitments. And you don’t need to miss out either, invite people round instead of going out, get a takeaway instead of eating out. You don’t need to stop ‘seeing’ people because of money.
What are your New Years hopes and goals? Nothing is too big ♡
Loe always, G x
