I was a little bit wobbly when I entered 2018 but I felt positive. I saw the New Year in with my children, fiance and family that we don't see often. We went to a party held at the village hall in my childhood village, my uncle was doing the disco and we all brought our own drinks and food. New Year's day was spent with my family and we had a lovely roast dinner. I had began to think of 2018 and how I wanted to achieve more this year with my life and how I didn't want to just survive anymore I want to experience and live.
My first goal is something that I have wanted to do for a while, write an autobiography. I have given myself 9 months to complete this and if I finish sooner then that will be great. I would love to get it published also. There are a few reasons why I want to do this the main one being for my own mental health, I find it easier to deal with my life by writing it down. Another reason is I would love to develop my writing skills and what better way then to set myself such a challenging goal. It will be emotional but also rewarding.
This year I want to take my children on holiday. To most people this is something normal but for us this is difficult, we can't afford holiday every year and in fact the last holiday we took was back in 2014 in a family members caravan. Sadly that person doesn't have the caravan anymore so we just haven't been away. I'm hoping we can save a bit of money and have a little break away.
I would love to lose weight. Ok now nearly the entire population of the world has this goal. I find it super hard to lose weight not just because of my love for everything sweet but because I have an under active thyroid as well as other issues, no spare time or money to go to a gym and I also can't get to a good slimming world group. This year though I'm determined as my health is suffering.
It would be great if I could start being able to save up for a wedding. Liam purposed last April and we thought we would of been able to at least put a deposit down by now but thanks to life throwing lemons at us it's just not been possible.
These are the main things I want to achieve in 2018. I'm a realist when it comes to life and don't think having a list of goals as long as my arm is a good way to go as you often end up feeling disheartened and down towards the middle/end of the year when you haven't achieved much.
