A Fresh Start

2018 flew by, I feel like I have blinked and we're already in 2019. At the start of 2018 I told myself "this will be my year". I wanted to make big changes and have achieved something at the end of the year. As life passes by I am guilty of sitting and letting opportunities become out of my reach. New Year Resolutions have never been something I have managed to stick to, I always start off so enthusiastic and slowly life takes over. Well to make sure that 2019 is everything I am hoping for,  I am adjusting my focus and giving myself new goals for this year. They're not set in stone, simply small prompts to help this year be the best year. 

My Instagram and blog is a huge goal I want to work on this year. I had previously had a YouTube channel, and since moving out and starting to work more it was never something that I had been able to keep on  top of. So this year I am going to put more focus into getting my blog back to where it used to be. I am also going to try my hardest to regularly post on Instagram and become a lot more active on social media. Writing and taking pictures is a huge hobby of mine and the fact that I have stopped means that there has been one less thing for me to enjoy. When you find something that you look forward to doing or creating, being able to throw all of your energy into it is only going to make you happier.   

Since I never went to university and I didn't hugely enjoy education I feel like I have always been lost for a career to aim for. So in 2019 I hope to find a job that I love doing. It doesn't have to be anything spectacular or a career that I intend to stick to for the rest of my life. Just a role that makes me happy and can support me for now. Working takes up so much of life that I refuse to be in a job just for the money. I hope that I can find something that excites me and brings me new opportunities. In 2018 I was lucky enough to get a promotion down to pure hard work. After a change in circumstances I left that career and am now on a search for something even more suited to me. 

Being too busy or working too much isn't a good enough excuse for not being able to spend time with family and friends. Last year especially I feel as though I hadn't given enough attention to the people who mean the most to me. Yes work has been busy but I'm sure I could've worked around that. Travel is a huge expense but Megabus is the way to go, with a return ticket only being £9 from London. So my final resolution is going to be to make more time for family and friends. Whether that being just meeting for a coffee, facetiming or heading back home to see everyone.

I never stick to any resolutions at the start of the year, I don't think my attention span can quiet stick at it for that long. So hopefully being less strict with myself and looking upon them as year long goals will really change this year for the better. Let me know if you managed to stick to your resolutions in 2018, and if you will be making some new ones now. It's never too late to make a change.
