Goals for 2017

Goals for 2017
I wrote this post on New Year's Day with a *minor* gin hangover from last night and a lot of trashy TV queued up ready to watch. I hadn't actually logged into Blogger for almost 2 weeks and it was a bit of a weird feeling to come back to it if I'm honest! I hope you all had a great Christmas and are enjoying the New Year so far?

Setting goals for the year ahead is a bit of a standard - something I do every year - but they don't always get followed through on. I could probably sum up mine pretty easily: travel more, get fit, stay happy. But I want to make these a bit more real, more actionable and something I can come back to next year and say YES. I did that. I achieved that. So here are a few goals I'm setting myself this year...

Feel more comfortable in your own skin. Stop worrying about your weight constantly and instead find some sort of exercise that you love and get fit. Fit and healthy, inside and out.

Say Yes, but learn when to say No. Say yes to all those things you really want to do - sing in public again, dance more, spend two weeks in New York. No more excuses, just go out and grab it. And say no to all the things that aren't important. Use your time wisely - you can't do everything and trying to do it has just left you tired, grumpy and not like yourself at all.

Worry less about your blog. Enjoy it more. It's your space, not a PR machine and you should fill it with ideas that make you happy and that your readers enjoy. Stressing about numbers and emails and samples gets you nothing except wrinkles.

Go visit your brother in Canada. Go visit your friend in New York. Spend less money on things and more on experiences. Another handbag is lovely, but a flight to somewhere might be better.

Be kind. Be curious. Take time to talk to people. ALL people. You never know what you might learn.

What are your goals for 2017? I'd love to hear them!
