What I Want To Achieve This Year

15 January 2017

Hello, I hope you all had a lovely weekend! Following on from my post the other day, 'What I've Learnt From The Past Year', I wanted to share what I want to achieve this year. Like a lot of people, I'm not a massive fan of the whole 'new year, new me' cliché and new years resolutions aren't my thing, but there are a few things I want to do in 2017, so here they are!

Travel
Travelling is top of my list of priorities for this year. I want to see as much of the world while I'm still in college and have the spare time, because once I enter the big bad world of full time work, I know how precious holidays are. My boyfriend and I already have a trip booked to go to Amsterdam in February and there's a few more we have in mind, so I'm very excited to see lots of new places!

Cut Down
Like I mentioned in 'What I've Learnt From The Past Year', 2016 taught me that moments are a lot more valuable than anything you can buy in a shop, so I want to grow on that and cut down on what I buy. I also want to detox my wardrobe and beauty products and only have what I actually wear and use, instead of feeling almost claustrophobic with the amount of stuff that's in my room.

Make Exercise A Habit
They say it takes 21 days to form a habit, and I've been working out consistently (except from a break over Christmas) for about two months now, so I think this is a goal that I'm very close to achieving. I do still have days where going to the gym is the last thing I want to do, but I want to be a lot healthier this year so making exercise a habit is the best way to do that!

Create More, Consume Less
I read a tweet the other day that went something like "You shouldn't spend more time consuming content than you do creating it" and this spoke volumes to me. I'll admit (like I'm sure most of you would too) that I spend mindless hours scrolling through Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, YouTube etc. This year I'm going to make a conscious effort to cut back on my scrolling, and focus more on creating.

Keep Growing
Speaking of creating, this year I want to branch out a little with my blog, after almost two and a half years, and I feel like a little refresh is needed. Instead of worrying whether a post will be popular, or writing a post just because I know it'll go down well, I'm going to create more content that's really true to myself. I say it all the time, but I never imagined my little space on the internet would have grown to what it has become today, and I want to build on that and keep going, because as far as blogging goes, the sky really is the limit!

Do you have anything you'd like to achieve this year? I'd love to hear what goals you've set yourself so let me know! Thanks so much for reading,
