My 2017 Goals

As I begin to write this post I think that it has only just sunk in that it is a brand new year and that twelve very fast months have gone since I last wrote about my New Year goals. I've always been rather good at sticking to my New Year resolutions - in 2010 I made it my goal to lose weight and lost six stone and last year I vowed to travel more. Even though I was unable to travel the world as I planned, I did managed to visit many beautiful places in the UK and mainland Europe. After two years of having quite a rough time with my health and deciding to step back from my goals, I want this year to be the year I finally rediscover myself.

Being poorly and having to take a break from your career and life can really knock your confidence and for me, it knocked my confidence to the point I didn't recognise myself anymore. Last year I hit lows  in my self esteem that I hadn't hit since I was in my teens and I began to feel 'lost'. It was the feeling of not knowing what would happen and whether I would ever feel like myself again. This month marks twelve months since I was last in hospital - having spent the last five years spending several weeks in hospital per year, it was a huge achievement. My medication is beginning to work and although there's no cure for my condition, through healthy eating and trying to remain positive, I have noticed my symptoms decrease and I feel like now more than ever is the perfect time for me to work at getting my life back on track. So here's just a few of the goals I would like to achieve or the next year.

A blog re-brand

Behind the scenes over the last few weeks I have been working on new artwork for my blog and setting up my new social channels ready for the big switch around. Re-branding my blog will symbolise a new start for myself personally and professionally and hopefully help me become the blogger I want to be.

Save Money

The older I get, the more I realise that I spend so much of my wage on superficial items that I don't need. I own far too many clothes, have enough makeup to last me through the whole of 2017 and as much as I try to convince myself that I need them, I really don't need anymore shoes. For as long as I can remember I have always wanted to go to Japan and I'm hoping next year will be the year I finally get all my finances in place.

Continue my travels

Whether it's a day out somewhere in England I haven't visited or a mini break to Europe, I really want to continue exploring and finding new place in 2017.

Improve my confidence

Last, but definitely not least I would like to improve my confidence in 2017. In my previous paragraph I mentioned that my confidence is at an all time low and I really want to get my confidence back. From taking pride in my appearance more to taking on new challenges, I really want this year to be the year I get myself back on track and looking towards the future.

What are your 2017 goals?



  1. Glad to hear your health hasn't been giving you as much trouble, best of luck with your 2017 goals!

  2. Ooh very exciting about the re-branding! Can't wait to see what you do :)

  3. I'd like to add traveling to my life too but atm it's almost impossible for me to accomplish. On the one hand reviewing online paper writing service doesn't leave much free time and on the other hand it doesn't provide much money. So this year I will probably focus on saving finances to get a chance to make my dreams come true in years to come.

  4. New school year starts and students have to deal with their homeworks, essays and summaries as basis. Some students get through this on their own meanwhile others face difficulties. While some students still need to work homeworks take a lot of time and energy. Hence the question arises “Who can help me to write my essays?”. It's obvious that they'll want to apply to source like this

  5. For my goals this year, I have decided that I want to go to different places that are beautiful and relaxing. All I ever did in my life was to work non-stop daily and I think it's already harming my health. There are lots of good things that I would love to do and I don't want to live my life in a way that I have to work every single day. Sometimes it's better to just be happy rather than to stress yourself over your working career.

  6. Your travel story is amazing. I wish to go somewhere right now but I have to study and write my college discussion boards. I plan to go to the saeshore on the upcoming weekends. I need some rest from a daily routine.

  7. Hello! Great post! I think that all your goals are achievable and nothing is impossible. By the way, every now and then When I feel down, I often boost my confidence by writing various movie review example essays what maakes me feel good about my personality.
