Goodbye 2016, Hello 2017

So, after an extended blogging break after Blogmas I’m back and planning for the year ahead which of course includes my blog! 2016 was a pretty okay year for me. I created this little space in the big sea of the blogging world, I got a promotion and I managed to save steadily throughout the year in preparation for buying a house. On the other hand, there was a massive change in my life when my boyfriend took a secondment to work in America for 18 months. But, all in all every down had a massive up. So, here’s looking forward to an even better 2017. 

In my 25 Before 25 post I listed 25 goals to reach before my 25th birthday this year. These in essence are my goals for the year and I haven’t really set myself any other resolutions. I don’t want to overwhelm myself with lots of goals as I feel I’ll be more likely to give up!

I could list an endless amount of resolutions or goals that I want to achieve but I don’t think having lists upon lists of how you want to change yourself this year is healthy for you. Constantly looking at them and thinking about the rules you set yourself can often make you unhappier. We shouldn’t stop ourselves from having fun and enjoying life just because on the 1st January we decided on eating healthily and saving money so therefore, we won’t be going to our friends birthday night out. Don’t lose you just because you’re caught up in your resolutions. I certainly won’t be! 

I hope 2017 brings you everything you have hoped and planned for. And I hope anything you have set out to achieve, you do. Here’s to achieving goals…. and drinking more water!

    Drinking more water has been one of my goals for this year, I always forget on busier days! Great post, I can’t wait to see where the new year takes you.
