Goals for the Year

Hello lovelies! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and New Year. Mine were both relaxed.

We've had some house guests which is why I'm only getting back into the swing of things. I have a ton of washing and so much organising to do. But I love the beginning of a new year because it gives me the opportunity to start afresh. That is just how I feel anyway.

I don't normally write resolutions because I know that I will never keep them going longer than a month but I do have certain goals and expectations and improvements that I want to work towards throughout the year.

♥ Be more organised - This is always a big one and I don't expect to become a superwoman at it but I want to try and organise my time management skills better.
♥ To capture more moments and memories
♥ To help make a change in this world
♥ Work on my creativity
♥ To gain more confidence in me! And to stop comparing myself with other people (Jason says I'm too hard on myself)
♥ To increase my faith
♥ To stop with just dreaming and do
♥ Write my thoughts out more regularly
♥ Give more of my time to the people who are important to me
♥ Write more letters
♥ Get a new job
♥ Be more aware of my health and fitness
♥ Stop wasting time by worrying
♥ Something I'm too embarrassed to mention here :)

They are just some of the goals and other things I want to work towards this year. I'm not going to beat myself up if I don't achieve them but I would love to end this year feeling satisfied that I have at least tried.

Oh I do have to mention that for Christmas Jason did get me a Fuji Instax Camera :) Plus the Harry Potter books box set. And he got me this wonderful pampering package (1 hr massage, hair treatment, facial, pedicure). I bought him an iPad which made him very happy. Though it was partially a birthday present too. 

Hope you have a wonderful rest of week and fantastic New Year!

Lovely goals, Gracie. I share a few of them with you, especially spending less time worrying and not being so hard on myself...

Happy, Happy New Year, my friend!
