Earlier this week I had the roundup of 2017! I have fond memories of 2017. Now, I want to look forward and plan for what is to come.
Over the years I have made numerous resolutions. Each year they have been pretty much the same and every year I have failed miserably. I have always set myself up to fail. Who does that?
So after a good few days of pondering, I have decided to scrap resolutions for 2018. No more lose x amount of weight, no more visit a gazillion places here, there and everywhere, no more tall orders. Instead, I’m going to focus on more attainable fields of growth.
So here goes……………
Take More Photos
Over the festive period this year, I took zero pictures. Some may think that’s a good thing and I was to busy having so much fun! I think I’m being a lazy bum in need of a new habit. While going back over my pictures of 2017 I realised there where so many moments I didn’t capture. I wanna capture more this year and with my new phone (and kick ass camera) I have no excuse!
Be More Minimalist
I have been trying to tone down my wardrobe lately. So far it’s going down a treat. I really want to move this into all areas of my life. The wardrobe felt liberating, I can’t wait to continue it.
Be Kinder to Me
Normally on my resolution lists is lose a few pounds. I do wanna keep this in mind but only because I have had a very indulgent Christmas. I feel better a little lighter and I wanna get back there, for me. This year I want to focus more on the positive than the negative.
Try To Be Calmer
I am no wallflower and sometimes I know I can be a handful and a bit “cray cray”. I want to focus on being more calm and level headed. This one is mostly focused on my working hours. My job can get stressful at times but that doesn’t excuse me. I want to focus on zen. Laugh all you want but I feel like this is a personal area of growth I want to expand with.
Get Back to the Kitchen
This year, food-wise, I think I learned 5 maybe 6 new recipes. How bad is that?! I want to get back in the kitchen and tackle at least one new recipe a month. I love to cook but with last year being quite hectic I lost touch. I miss it and just want to get back into the swing of things!
As we speak I have 18 unanswered WhatsApp notifications, 234 unopened emails and 3 voicemails. I tend to put work first during the week and everything else for the weekend. I need to get a better balance and make sure my loved ones don’t think I’m MIA for months on end. This one should probably be at the top of the list as it’s the one I need to focus on most!
So there we have it! My areas of growth for 2018. What are you focusing on this year?
