Right… so… Let me start off by saying last year’s resolution didn’t go fantastic, but I did have a HUGE amount of change; and we all know I’m not great with change! 2018 was the year of change (mostly positive) so I struggled quite a bit, but I’m so keen on 2019 being the year I really get back on track!
I’m gonna link last year’s resolutions HERE a number of them will be the same, but sure hey ho. We might as well start the New Blog Year (my new year starts in Feb) in the traditional way.
1. GET MY DRIVING LICENCE
I’ve been saying I’m getting my licence for YEARS now, but my focus this year is to do the theory test… test, a few times and then apply to for the second learners permit. Once that’s all done I’ll book in some lessons and the test and try my best to “GET IT DONE”.
2. CONTINUE TO SURROUNDED MYSELF WITH LIKE MINDED PEOPLE
I don’t think people put enough emphasis on this. Friendship is a choice, so why choose people who bring you down. I used to be very trusting and open, but over the years I’ve made changes to protect myself more. I’ve become a bit more closed off and to be honest it’s better for me. I can still be an open book, but I don’t give 100% anymore. It won’t be the right choice for everyone, but for me, at this time in my life it’s best.
3. CONTINUE TO NEST
I’ve been working hard to make our “house” a home. It’s obviously a home but, I want not just any home, a home to be proud of, a home that is organised and a pleasure to come home to. Currently I have so much shit without a real place that it’s become a bit overwhelming. I will have a place for everything and everything will be in its place, that is my goal for 2019. I’m really getting there with being more organised and I’m sooo pleased with my progress, the Spark Joy movement really speaks to me so I’m gonna try get Jarek on board and we’ll Marie Kondo the flat!
4. CUT DOWN ON SUGAR AND THEREFORE LESS PROCESSED CRAP
Hello my name is Sarah and I’m an addict.
I have a real problem with sugar and this year is the year I finally kick the habit.
We did have some trips in 2018, but they were very family orientated so this year is all about us, kinda. We always prioritise going to family, this year will be a mixture of both, and the year after that will be all about us! I’m also hoping to do more travel tips and style bits on the blog, so keep an eye out.
6. GO EVEN MORE ORGANIC
This will have to wait a while because I don’t really have the energy for this at the moment. I know that sound like a shit excuse, but it’s the only excuse I have right now. We sill continue to get the organic bits we get but I think summer onwards I’ll make a better effort to buy more food, cosmetics and clothing.
7. GET FREE OF DEBT
I didn’t do as well on this one as I’d hoped. I did a bit too much shopping and a few mishaps that I won’t bother mentioning happened. All that was 2018 and 2019 is upon us so we are already on the up. I didn’t do too bad last year but no where near where I thought I would be at. By this October I should be completely debt free and eager to save for out wedding and a mortgage. Let’s hope!
