Just like last year, I wanted to take some time to reflect on the year that will soon be over, and contemplate the year ahead.
Organisation – I’m going to consider this resolution more like a marathon than a sprint. I’ve gradually gotten better at this during certain periods (aka when work isn’t stressing me out).
Don’t let the negativity get to me – Happy to confirm this has gotten a lot better. I’ve cut out people from my life who only gave me negative energy and became a lot more resilient when it comes to the negativity both at work and online.
Lifestyle Blogging – Errr, not quite there yet. Can I make this one of this year’s resolutions?
Photography – See above.
Write and read more – Well, I did download a couple of half read books on my Kindle, so getting there ever so slowly. I should probably set a goal of reading a set number of books before the year is out.
Go strong, or go home – Yes! But unfortunately this way of thinking did leave me with a couple of minor health issues.
Focus – Often I found myself lacking direction this year, not because there was none, but because my focus constantly shifted to non productive areas. I’ve actually got a blog post planned for this, I want to create a focus board and zone into the goals I’ve set myself this year.
Lifestyle Blogging – I said it last year and failed, so I’m going to try and meet it this year. My life isn’t just about beauty products, I love fashion, I love social media, gadgets, computers, video games, cosplay, food and many other topics in life. I want my blog to be a reflection of my interests and hobbies.
Be patient, Seek balance – Probably not as evident on the blog, but off line I’ve felt myself becoming a lot more frustrated with life. I’ve always been impatient with my accomplishments in life, I never feel I’ve done enough at any point in my life, and my reaction has been pretty negative. Both ranging from zoning out and wasting my time being unproductive, or becoming so intense on what I was currently working on that I ended up developing health issues for myself. My goal is to work on finding a productive medium.
Shop Your Stash / Resourceful Purchasing – Like most people, I waste far too much money and resources on unnecessary things. So with regards to makeup and general purchases, I’ve decided to only purchase if I already have plans to feature it on my YT channel or blog (with regards to gadgets, makeups etc) otherwise I’ll make sure to use what I currently have.
Exercise – Okay, so every resolution list needs a typical resolution that simply won’t be met. I’d like to start by doing something simple 3 times a week and hopefully work up to something maintainable. The only reason is to give my mind better clarify and improve my health. Back in Uni I used to do an intense fitness routine every morning and my mind was as sharp as a knife then, if I plan to meet the first resolution then I suspect I’d need to meet this one first.
I also want to thank you all for the incredible support both on the blog and on youtube. I’ve been so touched and overwhelmed and I can’t tell you how much I appreciate each and everyone of you
Thank you, and I’ll see you in the new year
