Happy New Year! I thought I’d update you on my goals from 2018. My 2018 didn’t quite go to plan *spoilers*, but it’s important to reflect.
I am planning on doing a 2019 goals post, as I enjoyed having something to aim for throughout the year. Whatever happens it’s fun to try to who knows what the outcome could be. I hope you had a fab 2018!
Let’s see how I did!
Reach 5,000 Instagram and Twitter Followers
All in all I think I’ve lost more followers than I’ve gained. That will be because I’ve had a clear out on both apps. I realised that I was following so many accounts that I’d miss content from other people. All in all I’m not upset by not meeting this one, as I expected to lose quite a few when I unfollowed first. I’m still trying to grow and making a conscious effort to find new accounts to follow.
Pass My Driving Test
This is by far my biggest accomplishment of 2018. Driving was always a struggle for me, but I passed in August after one failed attempt. Driving is something that I never thought I’d do, so having the confidence to do it is incredible and to enjoy it too is something else.
I wouldn’t say I’ve saved as much as I would have liked, but I have been a lot more in control of my spending. There isn’t really much to say on this one, it hasn’t been that much of a fail, so I can’t complain.
This one hasn’t gone to plan. If you’ve seen my past couple of favourites post, then you’ll know. Things have got a bit better, but I fell off my fitness routine, which I’m slowly getting back into.
Learn How to Cook
This has been a complete failure. Which is a bit of an embarrassment really. I’ve searched Pinterest for recipes, but not found one I felt comfortable enough to follow. If anyone has any recipe recommendations then I would love to hear them.
Share My Favourite Accounts More Often
I feel like I’ve been alright at this. Especially on Instagram, as I had a period of sharing accounts every Sunday. I always tried to find new ones too. It’s definitely something I want to carry on doing.
Have a Clear Out
This is something else that has gone really well. Again you probably wouldn’t think it, but I’ve got a lot less now than I did have at the start of 2018. I even had a mini clear out of my packaging draw which is a minor miracle.
Continue to Improve my Mental Health
I’m pretty much on the same with this as I was on my update from half through the year. By that I mean that I’m not sure. It’s been very up and down, but for right now everything is good and I’m happy.
That is everything and overall I’d say I did well. I certainly did a lot better than I thought.
Did you achieve your 2018 goals?
