Its about that time of year again. Ok so we are past the 6 month mark now on 2017 which seems to me like the right time to have a look back over the Goals & Resolutions that I set myself in the beginning of 2017. If you would like to read that post then you can just click on the link here - My Goals & Resolutions 2017!! Ok then, Lets go!! (May want to grab a cuppa!!)
Clean up my act
This I actually made a good start on. I given away about 6 bags of clothes and had about 6 bags of rubbish to come out out of my life in the past 6 months and I ain't stopping now. I'm still on a mission to make my life more minimalistic and freeing. Even though I have already organised, given away, donated or thrown out a lot of stuff I still don't feel like I'm quite there yet. I know it's a process though and I'm happy to be doing it. I have even inspired my brother to do the same! Woop woop!!
Sort out my finances
This is also another one that I have been steadily working on. I have been focused on steadily working down my debt but constantly saving at the same time. I have also been sticking to a budget I would say about 90% of the time but there is definitely room for improvement. My Boyfriend & I have a big goal for autumn 2017 (which I will no doubt be revealing soon & budgeting & finances play a big part in it) so we are currently very focused on getting better at this adulting thing!!
Getting on a Plane
Although there is travel on the horizon I don't think it involves getting on a plane. Neither myself or my other half enjoy plane travel so it's not something I'm forcing myself into just now but you never know.....
Learn a Language
Again (I'm just gona say it straight up!) I feel like this isn't one that I will be getting around to this year. When I said in the past that my boyfriend was polish... well... he was but he is no longer my boyfriend & believe me I am eternally grateful for that because otherwise I would not have met my current boyfriend & I've honestly never been happier. Everyone who knows me knows I believe everything happens for a reason & this time I think the universe may just be looking out for me. If not I know my nan's watching over me! So yes I would still love to learn a language but I ain't putting pressure on myself to get it done by the end of 2017.
Building Proper Routines
This is another one I can honestly I strive for. I have had more change and upheaval in the past 6 months then I can ever remember. I went from living back with my parents, no job, recently split from my ex & having one of the people I loved most in the world pass away to in a few months living in a beautiful apartment with my best friend and now boyfriend, possessing a full time job and planning for the future. Thats alot of change and believe me it took a lot of strength to get where I am now (not forgetting little luck, help, support and good fortune also) I still have bad days, I still have days where I can't function and grief is too much or I can't calm down & my anxiety is going crazy but I am so grateful to be where I am right now & have the life I have. However it means that we are still trying to find our norm & routine as it keeps changing but I think we are getting there!! I am enjoying the process.
Also another one I'm constantly working on. If this year has taught me anything it is that you don't have as much time on this planet that you think you do! If you want something go out and grab it. Work for it!! If you want it.. its out there!! I'm incredibly lucky to have what I have right now but I want to dream, work & create a future where I never have to feel that low again!! Where I can inspire others to get up... out of bed... into the real world & do their part to make their dreams come true!! You hold the power! I in no way have everything worked out & maybe I never will but I know I'm heading in the right direction & that's the main thing!!
So there we have it!! Slowly but surely working my way through the goals I set for myself this year. Looking back already I am quite proud of what I have managed to achieve so far!! I am so grateful to have the life I have right now. If you had asked me a few months ago if I thought I would be here right now there is no way I would have thought it possible!
I would love to know how any of you are getting on with your goals for 2017! Are you #slayingit?? I hope so. Leave me a comment down below and let me know!! I would love to hear all about it!! You can also contact me on any of my social media! All my links are down below!!
