As I said last year, I don’t make any resolutions as I never keep to them. I make goals instead because goals are things to strive for and I tend to be very goal orientated. My last post mentioned that I was frustrated I failed on my second goal and I still am. At the same time, I accept that my personal circumstances prevent me from doing as much as I would like.
So what are my goals for this year?:
1) Try to write something every day or every week. Not sure on the frequency or how much if I am being completely honest but I definitely feel the need to make this a goal to make myself write.
2) Post once a week, every week on this blog. I know, the same goal as last year but it might help to keep this as a goal.
3) For my own wellbeing:
(i) try to pamper myself if possible once a month with a little special treat of something, even if it’s just watching a film or reading a book.
(ii) keep in contact with as many friends as possible, whether by Skype, phone or in person. Sometimes, a good chat/rant and a laugh is all someone needs to keep them well.
4) Participate in as many writing/National Novel Writing Month events as possible. I know I haven’t finished many events as of late but quite frankly, writing makes me feel better, especially considering my personal issues.
Right now, I think it is best for me to keep to just these few. I may end up adding more later but I definitely think these are the most important. Have you got any goals for yourself this year? Got any advice? Share them below if you like.
