As we reach the end of 2018, we all like to look back on how the year went. For me it had many changes, from finding a job to adopting another rescue dog! Not everyone had a great year and there will always be ups and downs for everyone. We all need to remind ourselves that things will get better and to welcome the New Year, like a fresh chapter in our story, no matter what it might bring!
This is what I aim to achieve in 2019!
1. Feel The Fear And Do It Anyway!
For me 2018 has been a good year, definitely better than previous years. I have come a long way with my mental health and I will continue to work on making it stronger! I have faced many fears this year and I came out the other end untouched! I still have days where it isn’t easy to function, but that’s okay because it is normal to have off days, but we need to make sure we don’t let those bad days knock us back!!
In 2019 I hope to continue pushing myself to face my anxious fears, no matter how small or big they are! Life is a scary and exciting thing and I need to learn to take everything as it is and not let my fears dictate what I do!
2. There Is Nothing Like The Present!
I am the WORST procrastinator I know. I will be given jobs to do and I always put them off until the last-minute. This causes me to rush, get agitated and in turn make mistakes! I promise myself this year I will do things as I get them. This I feel will be a tough change as I have been like this for a long time, but I know if I put my mind to it I can achieve my goal!
3. I Don’t Do Fashion, I Am Fashion!
Over the course of 2018, I have seen my style going from “I’m broke but I’m trying” to “I have money but I just couldn’t be arsed!”. I always loved looking after my appearance, I’d dress fancy and I would spend at least 2 hours doing hair and make up. I found it took up a lot of my time and what I wore was so uncomfortable. However I miss the effort I used to put in, now I slip on anything that is clean and I don’t even think about make up!
That is life I suppose, now I want to be quick and get out and enjoy my day, I don’t want to waste it making myself look nice, but like I said I miss the effort I put in and the feeling I got from knowing I looked good! For 2019 I decided I would start putting in a little bit more effort, get back into my style and at least put on the basic make up.
4. Run Fat Girl, Run!
Over the course of 2018 I have become the heaviest I have ever been. This is pretty much down to getting too comfortable with my free time! When I finish work I tend to indulge a little too much! This year I promise myself to start getting healthier, starting with changing my diet and taking the vitamins my body needs!
I will be getting married in the next year or two and I want to be thinner than I am now! I know this was my goal before, but now I have no choice, my body is starting to suffer. There comes a time when you have to say “enough is enough!”.
Now that myself and my fiancée are buying a house, I really want to learn how to drive so we can have even more independence! Unfortunately in Ireland they have made it almost impossible to get your full licence.
Like everything else you got to start somewhere, so my goal is to study for and get my provisional licence before the end of 2019!
These are my 5 goals for 2019 and to be honest I am excited to try to achieve each one! What are your goals or resolutions for the new year?
