HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

2017 is upon us and it feels great doesn’t it!? I love the start of a new year. It’s a chance to have a fresh start, a new beginning and it makes me feel motivated. It’s also super exciting to see what the year ahead brings especially when there are no “big plans” happening. I’ve never been one to make big new years resolutions as you are destined to fail them a month after setting them so I prefer to set goals for the year ahead and look back at the end of that year and see if I achieved them. I wrote a blog post last January (here) about my 2016 goals and for the most part I hit them which I’m pretty pleased with. The only one that requires a bit (a lot) of work on my 2016 goal that I will be following through to 2017 is my blog I started off last year blogging regularly and documenting my life on my little space of this big wide web and everything was hunky dory then towards the back end of the year I got so incredibly busy and everything that I had to take on seemed far more important than sitting down and writing. I even had a few nudges from my husband reminding me that I’d not written in a while and that STILL didn’t make me any more motivated to do it. I am now going to make a goal for myself that I WILL make the time to sit and write, because ultimately I’m writing to remind myself when I’m old and senile what my lovely little life was like and what we did with our beautiful little children. I’ve decided to set a writing schedule where I publish on certain days to see if that helps. I will also start the year filling you all in about the big stuff that happened to us at the back end of the year (New York and turning 30 to mention a couple) so watch out for those.

My other goals for 2017 are:

To continue to capture and improve my photography skills. Something I think I’ll always be working on but it does take a while when you learn as you go like I have and I have noticed a huge difference in my photo quality from January 2016-December 2016. I’ve had some nifty little accessories for my camera for Christmas and my birthday so I’m excited to get using those.

To continue to work out and eat healthy. Self explanatory. I won’t tell you how much cheese/Nutella I’ve eaten this Christmas *ahem*

That’s it this year I think. Small and obtainable just how I like it.

What are your new year goals/resolutions? I’d love to hear from you!

XOXOXO

    Nice post! One way to make sure you keep writing is to have a weekly post that follows a similar format every time. I always used to write a simple ‘my week’ post about what I’d done. Good luck with your goals! #twinklytuesday

    Great goals! I always like mine to be achievable too. I always find it’s helpful to have a rough content plan for the blog and then aim to publish on set days. If I have a number of topics to choose from then I’m not tied to writing one in particular if I don’t fancy it! Good luck #coolmumclub
