New Year, New Resolutions: Welcome 2019

2018 has definitely not been my year. It’s been a year of challenges and difficulties and even though there has been some amazing high points, there have been some hard moments and some pretty crappy lows. On a global scale, the world is becoming unrecognisable, and uncomfortable; on a personal level, life has been hard, but I have come out of it ready and raring to go. I want 2019 to be my best yet so positivity and productively are the aim of the game.

My final resolution checkin for 2018 was eye-opening, and really made me realise which things are important to maintaining a happier daily life, and which enrich my life on a bigger scale. With this in mind, I am stretching some challenges and focusing on things that improves my mental state and health overall.

So, without further ado, my resolutions for 2019: Continue reading “New Year, New Resolutions: Welcome 2019”

New Year’s Resolution: Final 2018 Check In

Well that’s it. 2018 is all but over and it’s been a mixed bag. I’m not going to lie to you, I’ve found 2018 hard. Some of that is circumstantial, some self-inflicted, but either way, it’s not been one of my best years. I do however feel like there are things that I can learn from 2018 that will put me into a better frame of mind to attack 2019 and make it my year! Let’s see how I’ve done with this year’s resolutions. Continue reading “New Year’s Resolution: Final 2018 Check In”

New Year, New Resolutions: Welcome 2018

2017 has been a mixed year overall really. It’s been a year of some really enjoyable highs, and some pretty crappy lows, and just about everything in between. On a global scale, the world is becoming unrecognisable, and uncomfortable; on a personal level, life doesn’t look nearly as rose-y as it did at this time last year.

My resolutions for 2017 proved quite eye-opening, and really showed me what my priorities are. It made me think about things that I find important, and regularly looking back at my resolutions in the form of quarterly check-ins kept my resolutions in the forefront of my mind, and made them more attainable. Emma, my friend/housemate/fellow blogger at The Terror of Knowing has some resolutions that cross over, so I think we can hopefully use each other to keep us accountable.

New Year, New Resolutions: Welcome 2017

happy-new-year-champagne2016 has been a mixed year overall really. I’ve really settled into a job I enjoy, and have got into a routine of making my way to work, maximising my day there, and making it home with minimal effort and wasted time. I’ve moved out into my own place, and I have welcomed the lovely Emma to Liverpool and our house, and I have travelled to some great new places. While 2016 has seen some global nightmares, questionable political decisions, and too many celebrity deaths to entertain, it has been a fairly solid year for me personally. I hope to continue this into 2017, and to help me a long I have made some resolutions to enter the New Year with. Continue reading “New Year, New Resolutions: Welcome 2017”
