Happy New Years eve! I cannot believe that today is the last day of 2018, its absolutely crazy. This year has been jam-packed, has had very high ups and very low downs and, quite frankly, I’m very glad to see it go and see 2019 in. Some big things are happening in 2019 and I can’t way to shake up my life a bit as I feel like towards the end of 2018 I have been stuck in a bit of a rut, and I can’t wait for some big blog changes in 2019.
These photos were once again taken by the lovely Ami from Amifordphoto– if you haven’t checked her out yet then what are you playing at?
I am not one my making New Years resolutions (traditional ones like ‘get fitter’ or ‘be more organised’ as I never stick to them, but I thought I would give some goals that I want to achieve in the next year. They aren’t huge but I think that writing them down is a good starting point, and it does seem like a good time to put them to the universe. I have been using and thinking about the law of attraction a lot in 2018 (and I urge everyone to research it no matter how silly it sounds), so I’m putting these to the universe, although obviously I need to work at them as well!
So here are 5 goals I want to wok towards this year:
Sort out my sleeping pattern
I think I need to read my own morning motivation post from a few weeks ago! I used to be the person who went to bed early and woke up early, and then university happened and it all went so wrong. I go to bed later, I wake up later and it is so so hard to break the cycle once you are into it. Whenever I am forced to wake up early now (for a lecture) I remember that getting up early is the best way to live, I’m naturally a morning person and it is the time of day that I am most productive so why don’t I utilise the extra time instead of rolling out of bed at 10? I need to work on my timetable and make it better, and I know that I will be so much more productive and feel in a better mindset. Every ay I’m going to wake up a little earlier and then hopefully I will be back to my old ways, although I can’t see myself getting up at 5am like I used to do at A levels anytime soon!
Launch the business
If you follow my social media then you will have heard about this but I am actually launching my own business in January and I cannot wait to share the details with my audience. Its all very exciting and I have been working hard behind the scenes for the last few months to get it to the level that I want it, and I think that I am nearly ready to share. Im not going to talk about it too much here and going to save it for a whole separate post, but its been a long time coming and one of the most exciting things thats going to happen in 2019… I can’t wait to see where it takes me and another thing to add to the crazy adventure that is the world of Indigo Rosee. Never in my wildest dreams did I think that I would be launching my own business at 18, but here we are and I cannot wait. I have dreamed of this moment for a very long time and all will be revealed soon.
Make more time for my ‘home’ friends
Since I have been to university, I will hold my hands up and admit that I have been so bad with making time for my ‘home’ friends… and I have only just realised this when we have all been reunited at Christmas. I have missed everyone so much and I know that they are my friends for life, so why don’t I make more time to see them during term time? Some of my friends only live 30 minutes away from me on the train and I haven’t seen them since September, so I certainly need to plan time to go and visit, go on some nights out, meet their friends and overall make more memories with them. There is no way that I am leaving it 2 months until easter when I next see them, despite us all being in long distance friendships it doesn’t have to be if we put the effort in to see each other. Luckily a lot of my friends are all at university in the same city, so when I go I can see pretty much everyone which is so fab. So many people to visit and so many cities to see!
Pass my driving test
Well this is a pretty huge goal! I have been having driving lessons on and off for about over a year now, and I have even passed my theory test… so 2019 is going to be the year I pass my driving test. Quite frankly I hate driving and I am so scared of the road, but I know that it will give me so much independence so I just need to do it. Plus a lot of my plans for the next year revolve around me passing my driving test so its pretty crucial. If you are also a nervous driver please send helpful tips and tricks please!
Work on my health
This seems like a pretty broad goal but thats because there are numerous branches to this goal. 2018 has been a weird health journey for me, and although I am a lot healthier now compared to this time a year ago, there are still complications that need to be addressed in 2019. I keep my health pretty personal to me and very rarely post about it, so I won’t go on too much (its a very long story!) but 2019 is the year where I know my own mind and my own body, and I am going to focus on getting my health as perfect as it can be, as opposed to just coping with the current situation and then watching myself deteriorate. Basically we are not going to have a repeat of 2018!
In a more ‘traditional’ New Years resolution sense, I really want to start going to the gym more. I got into a routine over summer doing ‘couch to 5k’ and I was actually becoming pretty motivated to doing it, and then uni happened! But I would like to start something like that again, as I am not a very fit person and although I do a lot of walking now I’m at uni its not the same as actually going to the gym and doing some exercise. I have a gym in my accommodation block so why don’t I use it?
So there are my goals for the next year, and I do think that they are all pretty achievable over the next couple of months. Also this marks the end of blogmas, which is so weird to think that I have now posted everyday for a month. There is still Hello January going up tomorrow as always but I see this as the last day of Blogmas as I have posted everyday in December. I just want to say thank you so much for supporting me, not just for the extra content this month but for every single day in 2018. I don’t deserve any of this and so grateful that so many people have stuck around and supported me throughout the year, I couldn’t be where I am without you all so thank you so much. Here’s to 2019, full of more opportunities and you coming along on the ride once again for my 3rd full year of me blogging… thats crazy!
