New Years Goals And Resolutions

05 January 2014

Welcome to 2014 everyone! Now i usually set myself a few New Year's resolutions each year to try and achieve, i think its a great way of having something to aim towards and direct your energy at, and of course you get a great feeling when you achieve them.
Last year i did achieve a few of my resolutions i gained a new qualification and i went on my first girls holiday, 2013 was also when i started up my blog which wasn't a resolution but to me its been my greatest achievement of the year!
This year i am going to set myself some new goals and resolutions, these will be to do with my blog and also personal ones as well. I hope that by sharing them with you, it will give me extra drive to for-fill them!

Keep up with blogging-
Since i started my blog last May, it has become a massive part of my life, i've never really had a hobby i've stuck to before but i have finally found one that i love and i want to continue blogging through 2014 and reaching new goals and targets.
Blog goals-
1- Get my blog professionally designed
2- Improve my photography skills, to improve blog pictures.
3- Improve on my blog organization, scheduled posts, post planning, photo sessions, replying to comments etc.
4- Targets, by my blogs first birthday in may i would like to reach 500 bloglovin followers, 200 GFC, 2000 Twitter and 200 Instagram.

More holidays-
Going on holidays, seeing different parts of the world and experiencing new things is my favorite thing to do. This year i want to do more of that starting hopefully with another girls holiday in June.

Healthier Lifestyle-
I no this is probably the most common of all New Years resolutions..... and i expect the most failed!
I've never been one for exercise and healthy diets, i love food especially the things that aren't particularly good for you, bread, cheese, chocolate, and I'm not saying i want to cut any of those out, because that would just make one very depressing year for me! I would like to introduce a lot more fruit and veg into my diet and try to drink more water. I also am never going to suddenly turn into some massive gym bunny, to be honest i love being lazy far too much for that, but i would quiet like to start running a few times a week and maybe go to an exercise class.

Spend more time with friends and family-
My friends and family and the most important things in my life, i don't no what i would do with out them. I try to make time to see my friends and family as much as i can, this year i want to do more things with my friends, weekends away day trips to places because we always have such a laugh, i also want to make the time to visit and see family that live a bit further away that i don't get to see very often.

Find a career not just a job-
What i mean by this one is i have a job it pays the bills, but is it my life's calling? Is it something I'm passionate about? The answer is no, I'm still not sure what it is i want to do, and so i want to spend more time over 2014 trying to figure that out and finding my career.

Be braver-
I have always been a very shy person, i get very shy meeting new people and would usually try and avoid new situations that would make me feel uncomfortable or anxious. Last year blogging brought about the opportunity to attend a few blogger events. The thought of going to an event with people i had never met before was terrifying for me, but i pushed myself and i went. I am so happy that i did i met some lovely people, stepping outside of my comfort zone helped give me a lot more confidence and i hope to push that further in 2014.

Find who i am-
This is probably a bit of a deep one for a new years resolution, yet one that i feel really applies to me.
The last few years i have felt very confused with not only what i want to do with my life but who i am, that may sound like a strange thing to say, but i felt like i was just going through life with out heading in any particular direction, not knowing what i wanted at the end of it. In 2014 i want to really push myself to try new things, be braver and find my path, i don't just want to exist i want to really live life!

So those are my new goals and resolutions for 2014, and i am going to try my hardest to achieve them!
What do you want to achieve in 2014?
