I am aware this post is one week late, and I have no excuse for this other than the fact I have been so busy I’ve neglected my blog. At the beginning of 2016 I didn’t set any new year resolutions, but this year I’m going too. As I have spent the run up to New Years Eve reflecting on the past year I realised that I have done nothing really, my year was totally average and boring. So in my resolutions this year, I hope to change that so when it comes round to NYE again I can be proud of accomplishing something.
In school I was always procrastinating and putting off things I really should have been doing. This habit has followed me out of school and I need to break it. In order to be successful and accomplish the things I need done I have to stop procrastinating, and start doing.
I am already starting off this New Years resolution good as at the beginning of February I am moving to Australia for six months. During my trip, I want to travel to Bali, Fiji and either Hawaii or New Zealand. I have a serious case of wanderlust so travelling is always going to be one of my resolutions each year.
I used to be obsessed with books and reading when I was younger, then decided I grew out of it. I constantly find myself bored playing on my phone when watching TV or some movies, but when you’re engrossed in a book nothing should take your eyes off the paper. My 31 hours of travelling to Sydney will be a good way to start this resolution.
Be more positive:
For those who know me, know I am a pretty negative and sarcastic person. Now I know these are qualities people like to avoid in their friends, it’s not nice to have someone around who always looks on the down side or is harsh. I think my negative attitude is the reason why I missed out so much last year, so now I’m going to try and change and be someone more positive.
Save more money:
I am already pretty good at this one, I have a rainy day fund and money saved for when I’m older too. I’m adding this one so that when I’m off jetting around these countries I don’t forget that I need to put money aside too in case of emergencies, and just so that I don’t end up completely broke.
That’s all my resolutions, hope you all enjoyed reading.
