I managed to make my first post of 2015 before the end of January. (just!) I spent the first few weeks of this year in Japan, one of the most incredible countries I’ve seen. It was freezing though, I don’t think there was a single dayover 10 degrees! I’m glad to be back to slightly warmer weather where I can bare my legs 🙂 If you haven’t seen any photos, check out my Instagram for a few snaps! While it’s great to be back, sorting out my whole backlog of work emails, letters, responsibilities etc etc has been a major pain in the butt.
Since this is my first post, I thought I’d share my goals for the year. I know whenever a blogger or anyone for that matter talks about “New Year’s Resolutions” it’s a big fat lump of cheesiness and cliche, but honestly I don’t think I could start any year without setting myself a few goals. People tend to make unrealistic resolutions; ones that are either unachievable or too vague. Sometimes you have to think outside the box and really reflect on what it is that needs to change this year.
So in 2015, I vow to get my priorities straight. I vow to make sure I spend my time doing the things that matter to me – spending time with family, making music, creating content, writing & reading, and me time. Last year I really didn’t know how to say no to work offers, and ended up doing way too much with way too little reward. This year I’m only going to work 3 days a week and focus on starting uni as well as keeping my hobbies afloat.
I also plan to find my style. What does that mean? Well, I buy a lot of clothes. Because I like clothes. But sometimes, I feel like my wardrobe is just too cluttered with things that don’t suit me, or things that don’t go with anything else I own. I don’t really have one distinct ‘style’ and I’d really like to discover what that is. So I’m going to dedicate time to cleaning out my wardrobe and making a list of what I really need and want. Eventually, hopefully…I’ll end up with a wardrobe full of things that I love and wear all the time.
I guess along the way I’ll think of other goals, but for now this should do.
What goals do you have for 2015? I’d love to hear your thoughts!
