17 goals for 2017

“Never get so busy making a living that you forget to make a life” – Unknown

2016 is finally over and I think we can all agree it was a bit of a car crash. With a new year always comes an influx of dieting fads and ‘new year, new me’ cliches. Although normally I would follow suit and pledge my allegiance to the nearest 24 hour gym and the latest clean eating book, this year I am taking a new approach. I am finally happy with who I am and where I am in my life. I recently moved into the perfect little flat with my boyfriend and although its still a work in process – we absolutely love it. I am finally debt free and can start saving for the 3000 adventures I plan on having this year and I am finally starting to find a balance between my work life and personal life (yes I am self confessed workaholic). So for the new year I decided to write down everything I want to achieve this year for myself. I may not have a set career plan but I figure everything happens for a reason, so I’m just going to continue and see where life takes me! I’ve set myself 17 goals for 2017 and I am not going to beat myself up if I don’t manage to do everything on the list – I am just going to take 2017 one day at a time.

1. Switch off from the internet

2. Read for half an hour everyday

3. Spend more quality time with the people I love

4. Start saying no

5. Continue teaching myself German

6. Use my bullet journal at least 3 times a week

7. Finish my knitted patchwork blanket

8. Scrapbook at least once a week

9. Take a photography course

10. Finish my personal styling course
