Here’s to a New Year…
Two thousand and nineteen. Twenty nineteen… can you believe it is already here? I feel like the last month’s of 2018 just flew by, and here we are in a brand new year.
Last year wasn’t the best year of my life. There were some highs, but the lows were the worst. Towards the end of the year, I lost all motivation, all drive. This is so not me. And whilst I set myself goals every month (Januarys coming very soon), I feel it is important to me to set myself some overall 2019 goals that I want to achieve this year.
2019 is the year that I’m going to put my drive and ambition to good use. I’ve got a good feeling about the year and it’s already off to a good start with the relaunch of the blog. Small steps towards achieving the bigger picture that I have in mind…
2019 Blog Goals
Reach 10K on Instagram. I know it’s not all about the numbers, but I would love to reach 10K on Instagram this year. For one thing, the swipe up motion would be amazing for sharing you the things that I’m loving, blog posts that have been published, etc. Also, I love a good round number and I feel like I’ve been stuck on 5K for what seems like forever! Fingers’ crossed it won’t take me too long!
Get ahead with my posts. I feel like I finally conquered posting on a regular schedule last year, something that I’ve not really done before. Now I want to get ahead with my post and really plan what I’m doing during certain months. I normally spend the beginning of the month thinking what I would like to write, but I’m taking active steps to ensure I’m providing lovely seasonal content for you.
Put more of me on the blog. You may have noticed last year that I stopped putting myself and my face on both Instagram and the blog. Last year was a low for self-confidence and how I felt about the way I look. 2019 is all about pushing myself and putting myself out there more. I’m going to ensure to do more style posts and work on my self-confidence (this is also a personal goal).
2019 Life Goals
Take more photos. Looking back on my phone, I feel like a lot of the photos I take are taken to post online. I never really just have photos of the moment for myself, if that makes sense. This year I really want to snap more photos just to have. The ultimate dream would be to have a physical photo album, I only have one and that’s my wedding album. I’m going to move my travel ones into albums. Now I want to start making albums for my everyday life. 2019 is the year to do it.
Travel more. Last year, Lee and I hardly travelled. I went to Lithuania for one of my bestie’s wedding but we didn’t do any travelling together. This year we really want to do some travelling together. Whether it be a few trips throughout the year or one big trip, we both just really need to get away and spend some time together away from our normal lives.
Create a home I love spending time in. I’m all about my home. It’s my pride and joy. I especially love the house we’re in right now, even if it needs some TLC. We’ve started a few makeover projects here and there but nothing is completed yet. This year I hope to change that, finish off the major bits we want to do so we can live in the space.
