Happy New Year!! Welcome to 2018, it’s a fresh year which means there is an opportunity for a new start~ I thought I would start off the year with some high level resolutions I’ve set for myself, I’m a planner girl so I love setting goals and plans for myself and I thought there was no better place to share them but on my blog 🙂
One of the things I managed to achieve in the last few months during my time off work is maintaining consistency for many aspects of both my on and offline life and I can truly see the benefits of it. For 2018, I’ve set specific goals for every aspect of my life that I hope to achieve throughout the year, but the overarching theme is consistency.
Another thing I’ve learnt over the last few months is that happiness is a choice. I can choose to react happy, or be sad or mad. And this year I want to choose to be happy as much as possible. Not only is being happy with what I have emotionally rewarding, but it keeps me motivated and inspired to follow through with resolution #1 😀
I feel like all my resolutions tie into the time I took off work, but for good reason. One of the benefits from taking a step away from the rat race is realising how much bigger the world is around you. And it really opened my eyes to the good I could do, even if only a little. So my goal is to giveback in some way this year, I still haven’t decided what and I honestly doubt I will share this part of my journey since it is so personal. But I’m excited to see what I can do 🙂
I also filmed a video covering my resolutions briefly, and I did a Q&A called “Year in Review” where I reflect upon the events of 2017 🙂
