I’m that type of person who loves to make a list, loves to feel organised, like she’s moving forward (even if nothing is really happening right now). So, needless to say making a list of goals no matter the occasion feels like I’m doing something to really motivate and push myself to make a difference. Does that all sound ridiculous to you? I hope not.
There’s a few goals that I’ve achieved already and some not so much, but I’m always adding to my list, so here’s an update of what I desperately want to achieve by the end of 2018.
This sounds completely harsh and selfish but that’s not my intention. I am the ultimate definition of a worrier and I loathe it with a passion. This little trait of mine has taken over my life at times and I can’t seem to stop obsessing over the most small and ridiculous things. Honestly I worry about worrying and I just don’t want to waste my energy. I know there’s no point in worrying if I can’t change something so I’m trying to just roll with that. I’m guessing this will be a lot easier after the wedding.
Be my best self
If I’m being completely honest (and I’m not here for the sob story), I very rarely feel like I’m being completely myself. There’s so many things I’d live to do, things I’d love to wear etc but I’ve always been caught up in the worry (there it is again) of how others may look at me. In the least vain sense, it can be daunting putting yourself out there without thinking “oh why did she just stare at me, do I look silly?”. I’ve been noticing these thoughts a lot more and before I start YouTube (which I really, really want to explore for myself) I want to grow a little more of the “I don’t give a crap” attitude when it comes to being myself.
Cut down on stress
Well these points all seem to be related don’t they? But seriously I have spent so long stressing pointlessly this year and I need to break the habit before it drives me crazy. It’s not beneficial to me so it’s not worth my time. I’ve been exploring meditation and breathing techniques so hopefully I’ll combat this over the next few months.
Keep pushing myself
This is what goals are all about anyway but I’m looking at this point in a blogger sense. I know what I want to achieve from Thimbles and Spoons and how I want to push certain elements in a positive way. I love the enjoyment I get out of blogging but it can sometimes be difficult to keep going. I totally believe that you get out what you put in, so I’m just going to just keep swimming. I just had to get a Disney quote in there.
Have you been setting any new goals lately? I’d love to know what’s on your list.
