Hope you all had a wonderful festive season and rung in 2017 in style. I personally had a very low key night and just had some friends over for a BBQ, drinks and some games. We raged so hard we were in bed by 12.30 haha.
With the new year comes those promises to yourself that you are going to do better and be better. I don’t usually make resolutions but I thought I might give them a go this year and really open myself up. I’ve only set myself 2 key resolutions that I think are going to help me have a better year and help push myself out of my comfort zone.
What are your resolutions for the year?
Saying “yes” to more things is my main resolution. I can be a pretty shy person when I’m first getting to know someone and have a bit of social anxiety when it comes to going places where I don’t know many people, so I have a tendency to become ‘busy’ when someone invites me to something. This year that stops. I really want to open myself up to new opportunities and to do that, I need to start saying yes to more things.
I’m also planning a solo trip to Vietnam for my birthday and possibly a trip to Cuba for Christmas. I’ve done a little bit of travel before but it has also been with a group of friends or with family so I am really excited to give myself over to new adventures.
Ah, the age old resolution. I think most people have a life goal of being better with money and while I can’t say I am reckless with my paycheck, I could use a little more discipline to help my savings stay on the up. One of my friends posted this on Facebook the other day and I’ve decided to give it a go as a cash only side project to my current savings. They only posted the photo so I haven’t been able to track down the original creator for credit.
It is pretty simple, the $$ amount corresponds with the week of the year i.e. week 1 =$1 and week 12 = $12. Do this successfully for the year and you will be left with a nice sum come December 31st.
Goodreads 2017 Challenge
On top of my resolutions, I am also taking on the Goodreads challenge this year.
How many books are you hoping to read in 2017?
