It is the 10th day of the year and I finally came up with exactly what I want to achieve this year. I wish I could do a lot more in 2019 but I had to be realistic. The following stuff are things I hold dear to me and will be driven to do this year. Life is crazy and it never goes exactly as planned. I just know my end goals – how I get to them, I have a sense of direction. However, I am keeping myself open-minded and understand that life may blow me in a different direction. One thing I know for certain – however my 2019 ends is how it is supposed to end. What I accomplish and what I do not accomplish is exactly how it was supposed to be.
As mentioned in my last post, my upcoming novel
This is probably one of the most exciting projects I am taking on. As a writer, I dream of being a published author. However, I finally found my idea and have been writing away. Realistically, my book will not be done by the end of 2019. However, I do want to see progress in my book this year. My hope is that I can have some sort of rough draft for at least 10 chapters this year. I want to take my time with this book because I want it to be perfect. However, I also do not want to push it to the side at all. This is the year I can put some focus on it.
Complete a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Management
Currently I am enrolled in a bachelor program for Business Management. I am set to complete it by December 2019. This is a huge top priority of mine to complete with great marks. Something I am looking forward to by end of the year is knowing my hard work paid off and I have my new degree completed. This is extremely important for not only myself but for my parents. Also, I do have aspirations to complete a master’s after this program so this is a huge step in the right direction. I love learning and this has been a great opportunity for me.
One Million Blog Post Views
My first year of having my blog – it did well, but not as well as I wanted it to. One of my biggest hardships with it is consistency. I want to change that. Being consistent is key and I need to focus on creating quality content on a frequent basis. This will help me achieve my goal of reaching one million views by end of 2019. Check back in 2020 to see if I accomplished this goal of mine. 🙂
Maintain healthy habits + regular fitness routine
The key to this is challenging myself. I want to make sure I stay disciplined this year. Making sure I challenge myself at the gym constantly. Never getting used to a certain routine by constantly increasing weights or changing workouts. Keeping it fun and tough always! On top of working out, I want to maintain a healthier diet. I always eat quite healthy, however, I want to do better. Especially with dairy products. I am determined to cut down on them as I know they are not the healthiest products out there. Something I need to do for my skin, body and wellbeing.
Focus less on others, more on myself
Something I struggle with is I put others problems on myself. I tend to allow their negative energy to rub off on me. This year I am changing that all. I am reminding myself that people closest to me are going to be upset and I can not fix everyone around me. It is not my place to fix things. I have to focus on myself and my own problems. People are not going to be my focus this year. Including the ones that aggravate me. If you feel the need to do me wrong, then I do not need to think about you at all. I am only allowing positive energy in my life.
Go on a Wellness Retreat this summer
Something I have been wanting to do for myself is go on a wellness retreat. This is usually a weekend long and it includes long hours of yoga and meditating. There are multiple locations around my province that have these available. It is something I am heavily looking into as I want to be more in touch with my body and mind this year. I definitely think it will be mentally healthy for me to do this for a weekend. I promise to talk about my experience as soon as I leave and share it with you all!
Finally see Maui, Hawaii
I have been wanting to do this trip for a while. Seeing Maui is something I need to do in 2019! It is my only major trip I really want to take this year with my busy schedule. I have a lot to do here and need to focus my time on work, school and writing. So I want one getaway to Hawaii this year. I will probably visit California this year as well but that is a given. I have to visit my favourite state every year. Definitely will do a few blog posts on Hawaii when it happens! I am aiming for September but looking into timing still.
Those are my 2019 goals/resolutions…
There may not be many but they are high quality. This year is a focus on myself. I will be local most of the time because I have aspirations to be international in the following year. It’s time to step back from everything else I love and just focus on what I need to do for my growth right now. I look forward to this year and the adventures I will take. A positive attitude is key and that is what I am maintaining all year long. So grateful for the loving people I surround myself with because I would not be where I am without them.
I hope you all have some awesome resolutions/goals you are challenging yourself with as well this year. It is important to have some achievable goals you would like. I always love to jot down my year and how I plan to achieve these. Though I know things may not happen the way I plan for them to, I just want them to happen if it is meant to.
Looking forward to another year sharing my thoughts with you all.
