Hey lovelies, let’s talk about goals and ambitions!
I don’t really like making New Year’s resolutions and I rarely ever stick to them, so instead I’m writing down some reachable goals and ambitions. A handful of things that I feel are achievable with the right amount of motivation and determination. However, even if you try your hardest, you might not always reach those goals and that may feel like a failure but it’s important to realise that you have tried your best and honestly that’s all you can ask yourself to do. I think the thought of ‘failing’ has always stopped me from making New Year’s resolutions, so this year I’m going to tackle it with a more open mindset and hopefully my future self will be happy about every little achievement.
Be A Routine Queen
Routine is key, especially for someone like me who easily gets overwhelmed when their to-do list gets too long. Ever since I started university I have tried and failed numerous times to stick to a routine, I’m great at keeping to deadlines and not double booking myself but one thing I’m terrible at is keeping on top of work and not letting it pile up. And so, being the adult that I am, 2020 is the year I get my shit together and become the routine queen I was born to be.
Stop Comparing Yourself to Others
Social media plays a big factor in our mental health and self-image, we are constantly on platforms which are used to share the best highlights of our lives. and if all you see is other people living their best lives, looking a certain way and boasting (sometimes unconsciously) about their lives it can hinder your view of your life and your self-image. And so, this year I want to try to stop comparing myself and my life to others. I am also going to be more aware of what I post and how I portray my life, hopefully this will show people that life isn’t and won’t always be rainbows and unicorns, and that you are bound to have off days and that is absolutely OK!
Have More Self-Care Dates
Our lives can be so hectic and time tends to fly-by without us even realising and so it’s important to make sure you put some time aside for yourself. Last year I started something called ‘self-care dates’, basically I would put aside a day (every 2/3 weeks) where I could take myself out on a date. Sometimes that would consist of having a movie marathon at home, going to a museum, getting my nails done or just sitting in a coffee shop and reading but whatever it was, that day would be for me and I would put every other worry aside and just enjoy time with myself. This year, self-care dates are going to be prioritised and I’m going to make sure I have at least two a month. Be kind to yourself!
I hope you enjoyed this week’s post and I’d love to hear about your goals and ambition for 2020!
