2019 will be my year, I am determined to have a year where I can walk away from it proud and happy that I have achieved all that I want to achieve. This last year has been one that I look back on positively, and have achieved a lot to better myself; but there always things that could be improved, and 2019 is going to be the year where I do everything to the best of my ability. Look back at my Initial plans posts to see what I have coming up this year..
The biggest goal for 2019 is to be happy. Be happy in absolutely everything I do; often I have little to no control over what I am able and capable to do physically, leaving me in bed quite a lot and missing out on things I may of wanted to do. But life is too short for regret and being unhappy, so I am going to make sure that no matter my physical state this year, I am going to be happy and enjoy myself. Whether that’s out having adventures, or at home with a book, I am going to learn to be happy and see the positive in everything I do. I know its cheesy, but its something that I think is going to really improve my mental health; at times it’ll be easier said than done, after all you don’t have full control over your mental health, but its a goal none the less to strive to see the positive in every situation. Fingers crossed to keep my depression at bay this year.
My second goal is to read; get back to reading to the level I have in the past. This year I have really put reading on the back burner while I’ve been busy with lots of different aspects of life, and I truly miss it. I want to get back to reading a book a week, if not more. I have set my Goodreads goal to 50, so a bit lower than 2018, but I am working on the basis that’s it more positive to reach a goal and exceed it, than to miss it and be disappointed. There is also lots of good new books coming out this year so I really need to get back to my reading rhythm.
My final goal is to start making healthier choices. I am not going to say that I nessacarily want to lose weight or exercise more as my health doesn’t always allow me to do that. But I am going to start doing this to make myself as healthy as possibly mentally and physically. My health has declined a lot in the past few years, and I can see the ways in which I have not helped it, so I’m going to make this a year of smart healthy choices.
That’s all my goals for this upcoming year. I don’t want to set anything too rigid as with many spoonie lives, it is not always easy to stick to things too solidly, you have to listen to your body at all times.
What are you hoping to achieve this year?
