My Goals & Resolutions for 2019

Goal setting is important. It’s emphasized so much in all of those self-help books; I own one called “Feel the Fear & Do it Anyway” and it’s spoken about there too.

Setting goals is important for you to take note of where you are and where you want to be so you can see how far you still have to go and decide on strategic ways to get there.

I will be splitting my goals into categories; namely personal, academic and career.

Personal Goals

  • This one may sound weird but next year I would like to put myself out there and hopefully meet someone special, I have been single for like 4 years
  • Lose 3 kgs and keep them off
  • I would like to maintain a weight of about 48kgs, I got sick often this year and I didn’t manage to get my bikini body exactly so next year I want to achieve that
  • Read at least 10 books (not for academic purposes). This year I really skimped on the reading and I am actually disappointed in myself just a little bit. 
  • Meet new people and build meaningful relationships. I have had the same friends since high school and it’s way past time for me to branch out; after all, I am not the same person I was back then. My interests have changed and I have developed as a person.  
  • Walk away or keep quiet when I have nothing nice to say in a negative situation
  • Pay off my study fees in time for results release
  • I’m ashamed of this but I need to learn to apologize, this is one of my worst character flaws and it needs to be rectified. I have this ugly thing called pride that really does no one any good

Academic & Career Goals

  • get a new job, the one I have has made my life quite challenging and has affected my academic advancement negatively, I didn’t do as many modules as I would have liked due to cash flow problems
  • complete a minimum of 9 modules this year to get closer to obtaining my degree
  • take my blogging to the next level and start earning some income from it.
  • reach more followers and create even better content. I need to do more research on SEO as well
  • Blog at least 8 times a month

As for New Year’s Resolutions; I need to drink more water. I have often realised I am dehydrated only when I get a major headache which I know is bad and I really need to stop doing that. I want to take my skincare routine more seriously as well in order to keep my breakouts to a minimum.

I want to get back into the gym and keep my body looking fit and strong. I had begun to see the results I wanted already then I guess life got in the way and the whole gym thing went out the window.

Your girl doesn’t read enough and I hope to change this as well next year. I’m pretty sure that I spent 2018 reading nothing but study material. I want to expand my vocabulary and better my writing skills and in order to do that I have to read more so making time for reading will be a top priority in 2019.

Have yet to master a signature dish – THAT I find appalling. I swear this year I found every excuse under the sun not to cook. I must change that especially since I love to eat.

If I cook then I can eat meals that I like every day not to mention have better control of my calorie intake.

Next year I hope to save enough money to be able to go on a road trip with some friends. I have had a car for about 2 years now and it has never even left the city!!! Unacceptable! 

I want to open up my heart more and hopefully start dating again (with purpose). I’ve been quite apprehensive when it comes to the opposite sex and not even on purpose. I want to learn to break my own walls down and to stop getting in my own way.

We all deserve love; myself included. 

Have you set your goals for the new year already and do you do new year’s resolutions? Tell me why or why not in the comments.

*One way of making your goals seems more real is to visualize them* I had a vision board for mine and I’m thinking of recreating it because it got all torn up.  Don’t forget to make your goals S.M.A.R.T (specific, measurable, attainable, relevant, timely) and come up with an action plan to make sure you achieve them.

Here’s to setting achievable goals and smashing them!
