Every year on the 31st ,most of us sit down and reflect back on the last 12 months. On the last day of 2017, I sat down and reminisced on this year’s past events. This year hasn’t been one with much tangible achievements or failures due to never actually setting goals for the preceding one. In 2016, the only wish I made for the next year was for it to be filled with happiness and fun memories. I did not graduate university, didn’t get the internship of my dreams or even shed the 50lbs I’ve been trying to lose for the past 5 years . However, as I reflect on this past year, one thing that I have achieved is true happiness and personal growth.
I’ve learned to accept that it is okay to be uncomfortable in certain situations, made time for friends and family. I also redefined what friendship means to me and learned to let things go that just didn’t bring me joy. Negative vibes have become a direct NO NO along with people who hinder my personal growth. I’ve become more honest with myself and others around me AKA ” F*CK the passive aggressive way I used to deal with things” . I’ve grown, matured , surrounded myself with positive vibes and made memories I would forever cherish with people who inspire me and bring me pure joy.
Last year I realized that new years resolutions weren’t always necessary . This year was my transition year from a really horrible 2016. However, as 2018 is around the corner, I’ve decided to create goals I would like to achieve by 2019.
SO HERE ARE MY 2018 GOALS :
BE DETERMINED AND PERSEVERE : One of my character flaw is that I never finish anything ! I will start something with excitement but leave it half way when it gets hard or when I don’t see any results. This is something I need to leave in 2017. Nothing comes easy and to see your dream come to fruition you have to put in a lot of work and believe in yourself. Trust your timing and don’t give up ( advice to myself) .
BE FEARLESS: I know that I’ve said that I’ve learned to be uncomfortable some situations but I find that fear of failure still hinders the good things I could have. This year needs to be about getting out of my comfort zone, being bold, letting go of my doubts and realize that fear is only as real as you allow it to be. It’s all in your head.
HAVE A BETTER LIFESTYLE : I don’t know about you guys but I for one needs a change of lifestyle. Wether it’s taking care of my body by going to the gym, eating right , getting 8 hours of sleep or just waking up early to be more proactive during the day…Something needs to change.
WORK ON MY CAREER GOALS: This is one of my main goals this year. I’ve always wanted to work in Social Media , Public Relation and Marketing. This year I want to network, put out content, put my best foot forward and work towards getting my university degree.
These are my goals for 2018 ! I would love to know what yours are so don’t be shy and write them down in the section below <3
