2019 has arrived! Based off social media, it seems like everyone is ready to celebrate their efforts of last year, and start working on their 2019 goals. It’s been nice to see everyone embracing change and positivity for the new year, now we’ll just have to wait and see if that lasts. 😉
Last year my goals were career focused and about being more vulnerable, and this year I’ll be focusing on other parts of my life. I always think that you should have goals that are both internal and external.
My main internal goal for 2019 is honesty. This doesn’t mean I have a problem with being dishonest, I mean that I want to live more honestly. I’d like to speak up more when something is bothering me and trusting myself to reveal the truth when necessary. I think bringing together what I’ve learned about vulnerability last year with honesty this year will be a positive change. Being honest with myself means holding myself accountable for how I’m feeling, in good times and in bad.
My external goal for 2019 is money management, primarily to focus on upgrading to a more adult apartment. With better job security, I feel like the time is right to start focusing on keeping what I’ve earned, not frivolously spending it. Having the chance to find a new place and take ownership in the process is really exciting to me. Of course, in the interim, cutting back on shopping will be rather difficult for me.
Like I mentioned last year, resolutions shouldn’t have a deadline. Having a new year just means a new chance to add more positive change into your life and when the year ends, you get to look back at what you’ve been able to accomplish! Sending my best to those setting out to resolve or begin new goals for 2019!
Happy New Year!
