I wasn’t a fan of New Year’s Resolutions, mostly because almost always I would break them a few days later. But since this one is the first “Resolutions” post on my blog, things are getting pretty serious! My blog is my personal creative space, so writing my resolutions here, it makes me want to accomplish them even more!
It took me quite a long time to write this post, mostly because I want to be 100% sure that I’m going to stick to my resolutions. So I made a big list, with everything that I want to improve and achieve this year (literally everything) and chose the most important ones to focus on (the ones I’m writing here!). Also, I made two lists. One for my Blog and one for my Personal life.
Let’s get started!
– Blog About more things.
I know that 2017 I wasn’t blogging so much, mostly cause I wasn’t sure if you would relate to what I have to say, or if things would get too personal… But this year, I’m determined to share more things about my personality. Cause Blogging is about getting personal right? I really want you guys to get to know me better and to get to know you better, so this year I’m going to blog about everything I’m passionate about, and everything that is bothering my mind. Every struggle along the way, how I overcame it and even my own personal stories!
– Improve my photography skills.
Well, I think I really need to improve that. When I started blogging I knew nothing about photography, so stock photography was my life saver. This year I need to take one step forward. It’s kinda hard because I don’t own a camera, and I’m doing everything from my phone. I hope that if I can afford it I will get one by summer, but till then I need to get better photos at least with my phone.
– Ask for help.
Most of the time I believe that I can do everything by myself. Though there’s nothing wrong with asking for help (even though I hate asking!), I know I will accomplish more things this way. So I’m stepping out of my comfort zone, and this year I’ll be asking for help when needed.
– Improve my blog/work/personal life balance.
Now this will be really tricky. I’ve been struggling with this since May. Work is consuming a lot of my time so my blog falls behind. This year, it’s going to change. I’m determined to make this work for me and stay finally sane. Also, I’m planning to do something quite big for me and step totally out of my comfort zone (I can’t tell you anything yet. You’ll have to wait a few months for that!) and this will probably change the way things are.
– Improve my Self-Discipline.
Now, this is my number one resolution for 2018. This is the one that I put above all. Because without that I won’t be able to achieve anything of these resolutions. I know how important it is to have self-discipline if you want to achieve your goals and improve your life. So this year, I’m putting this on top.
– Create a budget and stick to it.
Since I started working, I’m tracking all my money. And let me tell you something. I spend a lot! So this year, I’m gonna make a budget and stick to it. I really need to save money and do things like travel! So budget is the only way.
– Invest in Myself.
I’m already doing this since 2017 though, but this year I’m going to be more serious about it. Every day I want to grow. I want to read books, have a great mental health, and everything related to being a better person.
Things are getting pretty serious in 2018! Especially now that I’m sharing my resolutions with you guys… I was thinking of doing an update on this post in around 6 months from now so I’ll be able to track my progress!
