On My Goals For 2015


So I've been thinking about what's important to me at the moment and about what I really want to achieve this year. I want to set goals this year that will allow me to be a better person and to gain more perspective on what truly matters and equally what probably won't matter in the long run. Towards the end of 2014 (still doesn't feel right thinking of it as last year!) I started to get into the habit of, when thinking about something that may be painful or the cause of apprehension in me, saying to myself 'will this really matter to me in a year?'. And, actually, I've found that 95% of the time, it won't. I can get so caught up in stuff that I don't allow myself to take a step back and think enough to realise that it will probably be okay. And that, if it turns out to not be okay, just like everything else, I'll learn from it. That's what a new year's about for me; learning and growing as a result of it.

With that in mind, here's what I've come up with that I'm hoping to do this year ::

1. Exercise more.
2. Live in the moment more.
3. Be more conscious of what I eat.
4. Make more time for the people I want in my life.
5. Allow myself to make more mistakes in taking chances (within reason!).

They're just a few things I want to concentrate on this year. Simple, perhaps, but they undoubtedly have the potential to make me grow as a person... if I can stick to them!


  1. I really like your 5th one, sometimes we're all a little too hard on ourselves xx

    1. Thank you sweet, I wholeheartedly agree - it's so easy to put ourselves down in a way that we would never do to anyone else! I hope 2015 is a wonderful year for you xo
