MY 2017 GOALS & RESOLUTIONS

8.1.17

Well Hi strangers!
I'm back!

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and New Year and 2017 has been kind to you already.
I'm a lover of the New Year and a chance to apply some new goals to my life in the form of resolutions, so I thought I'd share with you my goals and resolutions for 2017.

Let's do this!

1. Start a Daily Journal & Scrapbook
Towards the back end of 2016 I found myself falling back into darker way regarding my Mental Health and having gained the courage to arrange private counselling I've also decided to start a Daily Journal. Mainly for Mental Health reasons so I can monitor my feelings and thoughts, but also inspired by my Nana who passed away last year. My Nana used to keep journal and diaries throughout her life and always noted occasions and occurrences in them, and have then to read back now is so lovely.

So, I've bought a Ohh Deer Journal from Urban Outfitters and I started it yesterday. There is something about documenting days or events that I feel really helps me, but I guess it's quite similar to Blogging really.

Last year I bought everything you need for a Project Life Scrapbook, but never have the time to start it. When New Year hit I went to my huge box of scrapbooking and began planning and placing everything out in my PL Scrapbook and I can't wait to scrapbook though 2017.


2. Get Fit
Before we went to New York, Tom and I joined our local sports centre so we can use the swimming pool, squash courts etc but mostly the gym. I used to go to the gym and I used to be a hell of a lot fitter, so I'd like to get back into working out and hopefully show signs of improvement which should hopefully help my self confidence and mental health too.


3. Start writing my Book
For a few years it's been my dream to write a book at I feel this year is the perfect opportunity to do so. Last year I designed two of the characters for a children's book series I'm planning, but I also want to begin on what I can only describe as 'my life bible'.


4. Learn a New Skill
Knitting has always been something I've wanted to learn to do since watching my Nana knit as a child and my Auntie is a crochet genius and I'd love to be about to do either!
My brother bought me a 'knit your own hat' for my birthday and my goal is to complete that by the end of the year.

Another skill I'd love to master is calligraphy. I'd love to prefect a writing style and be able to create art work of my calligraphy digital too and create fun and unique designs to display in my home.


5. Live life
2016 was a strange year for me moving into our first home and having to live like a real adult with bills and managing money etc. But 2016 was also difficult for me as I lost a huge part of me, my Nana. My Nana was a very intelligent and inspiring women who I think of every single day, but losing her has shown me that you can carry on and you can still make her proud.
My Nana and Grandad were together for decades and did everything together. Now my Grandad who is deaf and had a stroke lives alone with his new dog and he's incredible and inspires me every single day.

My Grandparents have taught me that you can still succeed when you're down and you can still strive to achieve your goals and make your family happy even when you're really down.
So I plan to make 2017 a good one by living life to the full. With my friends and family, with Tom and Arla and with my Blogging too.

I want to end 2017 happy, and feeling like the year has been one to remember for many reasons. I want to travel and see new things and document it in my journal and take so many bloody photographs.

So, I'm going to give it my best shot!
Wish me luck.

Thanks for reading,
