Happy New Year!
I’ve started 2018 with a new blog theme, as new year, new template… am I right? Probably not, but moving on. I’ve never done a post like this before, but I thought publishing my yearly goals would help me achieve them, as I know what I want to work towards.
Let’s get into my 2018 Goals.
Reach 5,000 Instagram and Twitter Followers
When I first started blogging my milestone for socials was 5k. That’s what I was aiming for and I’m still aiming towards it today. Growing on Instagram has become a challenge, but I’m focusing on my content because as long as I enjoy it that’s what matters. I never know what to Tweet, as I don’t think I’m that interesting, but I’m hoping to give it a go.
Shameless I know.
Pass My Driving Test
This is a big one and something I have been working towards for a while now. I’ve really struggled with driving, as I am a really nervous driver. In the end I’ve gone for automatic and it’s helped me massively and I find it a lot easier and have been making progress in lessons. I’ve finally found a fantastic instructor and I’m getting to a place where I’m looking forward to driving instead of having a breakdown every time I sit behind the wheel. I really hope I can manage to pass this year.
I may have got a little spendy in December, and wiped out 99% of my savings; which obviously isn’t ideal. Having money saved is always a good idea, so I need to get better at saving it and leaving it alone.
I’m pretty sure I’ve had this Resolution for around six years now. I’m hoping 2018 is the year that it finally happens. I’ve already started taking Ralph on longer walks to try to get a bit more exercise, but I want to start making diet changes too.
Learn How to Cook
I started baking a lot more in 2017 and I’ve really enjoyed it, so I’ve decided to move onto cooking meals. Making something from scratch always feels more satisfying than shoving a frozen meal in the oven. I have a private board on Pinterest of recipes that I would love to try.
Share My Favourite Accounts More Often
This is something that makes my day, so I want to start sharing other people’s accounts too; whether it be on here, Instagram or Twitter. I just think it’s a nice thing to do, and I’ve never really done it before, but I’m going to make a better effort.
Have a Clear Out
Hello, my name is Hannah and I’m a hoarder. I never really thought I was that much of a hoarder, but just recently; I’m starting to run out of space. I mean, I have a draw full of makeup packaging that’s too pretty to throw away. (It also comes in handy for photos) I do want to get a box and store it somewhere else, as it’s starting to take up too much room. I’m also starting to struggle fitting everything else in my room, so something has to go.
Continue to Improve My Mental Health
Towards the end of 2017 my mental health improved dramatically. I’m not exactly sure what happened, but I managed to do things that I never thought I would. I went to Nottingham on the 23rd of December which was a Saturday to see the Christmas markets. Now that probably sounds fine, but I’ve always declined going shopping on a Saturday, as I won’t enjoy myself. I usually spend the whole time feeling anxious, but I was fine. I really hope I can carry that on to 2018.
Well this ended up being a lot longer than I thought it would be. Turns out I’ve got quite a few 2018 goals!
I would love to hear what goals you have for 2018 too.
Thank you for reading, and Happy New Year!
