2019: A Year for Change

Another year?

Another chance to set new goals and aspirations for the next chunk of time ahead of us?

New Year, New You?

I don’t know when it became normal to start setting goals, targets, resolutions (whatever you want to call them) in January, but part of me likes it, and part of me doesn’t. As someone who struggles with perfectionism, setting goals I know I may not keep felt as if I was setting myself up for failure. That said; I’ve come to realise that there’s more to life than a checklist, or finding my self-worth in ticked boxes or letters on a piece of paper – and so when it comes down to it, goals can be a really good way of re-focusing.

2018: A Year of Firsts

I’m not going to spend the time going over each and every one of my goals – but I’ve found it fascinating looking back at what I wanted to get out of this year. Have you written down goals – and I say goals rather than resolutions; because more often than not resolutions never make it to the end of January – goals that you can then reflect on come the end of the year?

I know goals or new habits don’t need a new year to be formed – but there’s something quite nice about having a year as a round period of time! But before I move onto what 2019 may have in store; and what I want to achieve or just set in place, I want to look back a little at this year.

2018: The Year that ‘Could Be’

I’ve been spending a fair amount of time this week reflecting, and thinking about what my goals are for this year. I’m amazed at how quickly this week has flown by, and no matter how many times I’m told “Time only flies quicker the older you get.”, I still think the end of each year will take me by surprise. That said, as I mentioned in my 2017 roundup, despite time disappearing at the blink of an eye, I’ve generally managed to fit an awful lot into a year.
