Life: Five 2018 Resolutions that I’m actually going to try and keep

This time last year, I posted my
2017 goals.
With the exception of buying a house, which is still very much a work in
progress, I am pleased to say that I managed to stick to my goals and had an
amazing year, for the most part. I’m back here again this year with another
list of ‘goals’ that I want to achieve. This year, I’ve made sure I’ve been
incredibly realistic with my Resolutions and that they’re resolutions that
actually mean something.


One thing that I’ve been really
proud of myself for doing in 2017 is being much more positive about myself, my capabilities
and my life than I have been in the past. I’m hoping to continue on with this
as I’ve found that being more positive in myself has made me more positive in
general, with regards to work, my relationships and my general happiness has
increased astronomically.  


This was another resolution I
made last year and I kept up the premise and filled pages upon pages with
photos and memories, all ready to look back on whenever I fancy. I’m going to
carry on doing this, giving my future family the opportunity to look back at
the things I did when I was younger if they so wish.


It’s so easy to forget how lucky
you are to have amazing friends and family around you, and even easier to take
everything they do for you for granted. One of my resolutions for 2018 is to
show everyone just how much I appreciate them and remind myself just how lucky
I am to have a loving environment surrounding me.


I think it’s fair to say that I’ve
let myself go a little bit with regards to blogging and it’s made me incredibly
sad to think that something I’ve worked so hard on over the last few years has
just gone to pot so quickly. A (realistic) target for me for 2018 is to attempt
to blog at least once a week. Getting back on track won’t be easy but a little
bit of effort on my part will have fantastic rewards.


As always, I’m saving up for the
year. I have lovely things planned and I’m still putting money aside, bit by
bit, so I can make a move and buy a house but I’d also love a summer holiday
with my boyfriend and a few weekend trips as the year goes on. Travel is my
favourite thing to do of all and being sensible with my money means that going
away will be as frequent as it used to be!
