My Goals for 2015

I am one of those people who hates new years resolutions and the whole 'new year, new me' idea. I just feel like it can often be pretty unrealistic. The date has changed and not much else! Nonetheless, I do have some personal goals and things I want to do in 2015. I thought I would just keep them all in my head but hey, I may as well share them on my blog! You're support and advice would be lovely, hehe.

Better sleeping pattern | I am SUCH a night owl. I never go to bed before 12 no matter how tired I am. I just love being up on my own, with nothing or no one to bother me, sounds weird I know! I seriously need to make an effort to sort this out this year as I'm sure it ain't healthy.

Read more | I am an English teacher who is shit at reading. There I said it, the secret is out! I really want, scratch that need to get in to the habit of reading regularly! I'm going to aim for at least one book a month. I know some people who read 1 book a week would laugh at that but hey, baby steps! and I mean proper novels too. No 50 Shades malarkey!

Try new things | I really want to try some new hobbies this year. I have no idea what yet but maybe I will join a yoga or painting class, who knows! I've realised how it's so important to give new things a go, it may turn out to be a new passion.

Go for more walks | I want to take Nicky for a walk most days. As it is, I only take him once or twice a week and my dad takes him 2 or 3 times depending on the weather. I want to go more often, no matter what the weather. Getting some fresh air and exercise is so important for my well-being. 

Visit new places | I need to see more of my own back garden. So day trips around the country would be a lovely thing to do more of this year.

Keep a diary | For some reason, I really want to keep a diary this year! I bought a lovely one yesterday that has an entire page for every day of the year. I would love to fill it with all my thoughts throughout the year.

Organise my blog | I want to get my blog in to a nice flow and routine. I want to come up with some unique post ideas that really excite me. I feel like January will be pretty quiet on here, I will spend it brainstorming ideas!

Get sh*t done | I really need to get my ass in gear and start taking the initiative to create the life I want. I need to be more confident in myself and less afraid of rejection, this is so hard for me but I really need to get motivated and be productive this year. 

There we have it, some of my goals, hopes and wishes for 2015. I just want to be a better version of myself. As they say 'the only person you should try to be better than is the person you were yesterday' so I am all for personal growth and improvement.

I would love to hear what your new years resolutions are in the comments!

Ooh great goals! I really need to make an effort to sort out my sleeping pattern this year too, being a night owl really isn't practical is it? x

I am in the same boat as you when it comes to New Years resolutions. I love the idea of them and I think it's a great time of year to be reflective, but I try not to get carried away. One of my big goals is also to read more. I feel like I read so much for school that I've really let my reading for fun fall away and it's something I want to make more time for.

What great goals! I'm totally with you on developing a normal sleeping pattern! It seems like my body just wants to stay up till 4 am every night regardless of things I have to do! Haha. Happy 2015!
