Hi Beauties, and hello 2020!
As you may have noticed I have taken a little break over the last month or so just to focus on work and myself. But I am more than ready to get back into it and make the most of getting content ready whilst I am on holidays from work. If you have been following my blog for a while, then you might have seen some of my start of year posts from previous years. And this one will be no different! So let’s get into it.
2019 definitely wasn’t the best year of my life, but it wasn’t exactly the worst either. I started the year off by spending time in New Zealand with my family and I can honestly say it was the first Christmas/New Years I can remember that I actually felt so happy and really enjoyed myself.
The next big thing that happened in my life this last year focused around work. After two or so months of just working casually here and there, I was finally offered a more stable job. At first, it was only 3 days a week, but within 4 weeks I became full time. This has to be the best thing that has happened to me this year as it really helped me to find a purpose in life. The children I work with are amazing and I feel so happy to be able to help make a difference in their lives and their futures. I finally found a job that I was happy with and I was finally working with/for people who were supportive and caring. I have made so many new and amazing friends through this job and I am so excited to have a contract to go back again full time in 2020.
Last, but certainly not least, I finally got myself a baby. A dog baby! Everybody meet Mykie, he is my little bundle of energy and love. I had so many friends always tell me how much a pet can help with depression and anxiety, but after losing my childhood dog a few years ago I never thought I would be able to go through that again. In came Mykie and he was the best decision I have ever made for myself. Because of him, I am able to understand love, I feel needed and wanted and like I have a real purpose. He needs me to look after myself so that I can look after him in the best way possible. And it doesn’t hurt that he gives me so many cuddles every day.
Like always, I have some goals I would like to set for 2020. Not resolutions as such but just little milestones that I would like to aim towards, and if I don’t achieve them then that’s fine, there is always next year!
#1 – continue working on having a positive mindset. I have always struggled with remaining positive, especially when it comes to my own thoughts about myself, so 2020 is all for self-care and self-love. I have already started my 2020 Self Love Diary (you can find more details about this over on my Instagram).
#2 – make healthier choices. I feel like this will always be a goal for me as it is something that I always seem to fail, but that’s ok! I want to TRY to get out and exercise more, I want to TRY to eat healthier, but most importantly, I just want to TRY and make myself a healthier and happier person.
#3 – work on improving my photos and content for both Instagram and my Blog. These are two things I am really passionate about, so why not make it a goal of mine to work hard on it and see it through all the way to the end of the year.
#4 – save money up for a big holiday. My best friend and I have a goal for the end of 2020, but to achieve this I am going to have to try my hardest to save all the money I can. This means no more buying unnecessary things, finishing up the makeup products I already own and love, and not just purchasing new makeup because of the ‘hype’ around it. Low buy 2020, I am ready for you.
These goals may seem small, and they are definitely achievable. There is no point to making goals if you have no ideas, wants or even plans to achieve them. By working on these, my bigger life goals can be reached even quicker!
What are some of your goals for 2020? Leave me a comment and let me know 🙂
That’s all for now Beauties!
