New Year, New Beginnings

Happy New Year! The New Year is possibly one of my favourite times of the year. December 31st finally sees the end of an old year and the beginning of a new one. It’s safe to say the New Year actually makes me feel excited.

I think the main reason I get excited is purely for the new beginnings and opportunities that a new year has the potential to bring. New Year’s resolutions are very cliche, but something I truly believe everyone should stick to. Let me tell you why…

Setting goals, whether they’re minimal or whether you have a whole list of them to set yourself throughout the year, they’re still goals you can work towards.
I mentioned on Instagram in this post how I have a few goals for the new year myself, and whether any of my followers had any goals themselves. Some of the responses included:
– Becoming more of a creative person
– Read some more
– Create more art
– Drink and eat healthy
These are some brilliant ideas from my followers, and I really think they’re some I may take up myself.

What Are My Goals?
Last year I created a video called 18 Things I Plan To Do in 2018 and after reviewing the video, I actually only ended up doing 2 or 3 of the things on that list, which is awful and something I’ve really got annoyed at myself for.
This year I am determined to stick to these goals, and I’ll be creating a video again of 19 Things I Plan To Do in 2019.
Here are a few of them:

– Volunteer again.
I took up volunteering at my brother’s school last year and genuinely enjoyed it, so it’s something I want to do again this year for definite.

– Get a job and be financially stable
I have only had 1 job since moving to Australia, which is pretty rubbish as they had to let me go. This year I want to be able to get a job and have a good amount of money coming in to support myself as well as help my family with certain things too.

– Finish college officially!
Ohhh my goodness me. If you didn’t know, I study photography online, doing a Certificate 4. It has been the absolute bain of my life and a huge weight on my shoulders. There will be a blog post when I finish, however, for now, I’ll just let you know I want to get it done and out of the way.

– Join a gym and workout
My figure is something I have struggled with for years. Learning to love my body has been such a struggle purely because I really struggle to put weight on, as well as having been bullied in school for years on end, its time I work on my figure and get the body I’m determined to have, and workout as much as possible.

– Dedicate more time to YouTube and my blog
Both of these are pretty much my little escapes for when I feel like I need to be creative. I have been rubbish last year with how much time I spent on both. This year I want to be able to upload frequent blogs and videos and make them both my favourite thing to do again.


I have so many other goals (I have 19!!) that I’d love to share so there will be a YouTube video soon with all of the goals and talking through what I aim to do with all of them.

I hope you have all had the most wonderful new year, and continue to have a chill New Year’s Day. I have my fingers crossed that 2019 will be your year and bring you everything you ask for.
