2017 Goals...

I really want 2017 to be my year. Last year to be honest wasn't brilliant and there were times I thought, seriously how much is one person supposed to take? and even though there are times I feel scared about this year and what might happen, I also feel quite positive and ready to go for it, in lots of different things. I thought I would get some of my more personal goals put down on here and hopefully next year I can come back and do another post reflecting on them and hopefully I'll be able to see that I've achieved them all, or at least given them a good shot! I was originally going to talk about my blogging goals on this post too but there are too many so I'm going do another post on those this Friday!
  • Find part time work - I do want to think about getting back into work at some point over the next few months. I'm not sure what sort of area I would be looking to work in, I'm really interested in working in a school and maybe trying to aim towards being a teaching assistant. I've got relevant qualifications and experience so that's a possibility but if not I'll probably just stick with admin jobs for now as that's what I've done most recently and I was really good at it. I'm going to spend some time really thinking about it though soon before I decide anything.
  • Stick to Slimming World - I mentioned Slimming World a few times last year and I post a lot of recipes which are great for people following the plan, but towards the end of 2016 I just sort of lost any willpower and I didn't really even enjoy cooking anymore. But now it's new year and I am on it! I lost 3lbs my first weigh in after Christmas, had a few days off for my birthday but I was straight back on it on Monday and I am so committed this time. I don't have a set target weight yet but I'm so determined to carry on with it this year and feel so much happier and comfortable in my own skin.
  • Stress Less - I'm such an over-thinker and I stress about everything so in 2017 I really want to try to relax a bit more. I stress about things that really don't matter and things can stay on my mind for days and days just eating away at me, I drive myself mad with it so I'm going to make a real effort to try and deal with things in a better way and find new ways of coping with anything that is making me feel that way.
  • Treat Others How They Treat Me - To be honest I am sick of giving so much of myself to others and getting absolutely nothing in return so this year that is changing and I'm going to treat others how they treat me. If they make an effort, I will too but if they don't then I'll quite happily leave them too it. There are too many people that I try and try with and it's never returned so I'm done with it now. I need to focus on myself more this year, not bending over backwards for others that clearly couldn't care less. 
  • Read More - I really think this will help me de-stress. I used to love reading and I do go through phases where I can't put a book down and others where I don't pick one up for about 6 months. I got Reasons To Stay Alive for my birthday and I can't wait to get stuck into it. I have a few other books I'm still yet to read so this year I want to dedicate more time to it. I love getting lost in a whole other world. 
  • Get A Hold Of My Anxiety - My anxiety can be all over the place sometimes. I go through really bad phases where I just don't want to do anything and other times I feel amazing so this year I just want to get a better hold of it and control it in the times I feel it getting bad again. I need to look at the things causing my anxiety and find ways to overcome it because I don't want it to stop me doing things anymore.
I think these are the main things I want to work on this year and hopefully I can achieve them all! I'm going to give them all a really good try anyway, I'm really hoping 2017 will be an amazing year!

I'm going to do a follow up post to this next year to reflect and see what I managed to do in 2017 so let's hope I have something good to say about all of them!

Have you set yourself any goals?

These are all such great goals. I think writing them down in a post is such a good way to keep track of them. I did it last year and this year, and it really was nice to look back on what I had (and hadn't) achieved. I'm hoping to improve my anxiety this year too, and maintain a part time job

Thank you :) I'm looking forward to seeing next year if I've achieved them all, hopefully I will have :) Good luck with yours too! x

I can relate to all of these! (except slimming world but I am thinking about maybe joining) I have about 8 books to read right now but I've lost the feeling of wanting to pick up a book and read. I tend to go through spells of reading about 3 books one after another and then stop completely for a few months lol, it's weird! Good luck on your goals! x

I keep meaning to find some time to just sit and read but it never happens! I used to love it though so I need to get back into it. Thank you, you too :) x
