Hello 2019: Goals and Aspirations

Hello 2019: Goals and Aspirations

So, that last post I published was pretty heavy, I'm still quite shocked I actually hit the publish button on it, it's not like me to share my feelings so openly like that. I guess though, it's who I want to be in a sense. I want to be able to share my feelings more openly and stop putting a taboo on my own emotions. That's not why I am here though, I want to be less heavy with this blog post, I want to be a little more positive with this post if I am being honest. I know resolutions are a bit taboo nowadays, mostly because people totally go about them in the wrong way, but I won't get into that, but I actually really enjoy making goals, big or small for the year ahead. I feel like the new year creates a fresh, blank page wherein you have a full year to adapt, to grow and to take that step closer to who you really want to be. I've found it hard to actually write up my goals this year, all I could think of for a week or so was "be happy" so that's where I am starting.

BE HAPPY
This year I want to be happy. Sounds simple enough, doesn't it? I mean, it's not like I am not happy now, not like I haven't been happy in 2018, I have, of course, I have. I just put limitations on my happiness in numerous ways. from telling myself I'm not allowed to be happy to going out of my way to look at things that make me unhappy. 2018 was the year I did a lot to make me happy, but I spent a lot of my year feeling sorry for myself, making myself feel bad, y'know how it goes, but I don't want to do that in 2019. I want to live more, do more, put myself first, take opportunities that will make me happy. I just want to stop walking on eggshells, I want to be happy and take more care of myself. 

Hello 2019: Goals and Aspirations

THINK LESS
I know this one sounds silly, but I am as type A as they come for the most part. I worry constantly, I over analyse every single thing I do, I over think and I drive myself crazy and I am sure my family and friends are also driven crazy. It's pretty annoying actually so I'd like to stop that. I would like to do things for no other reason than I want to. I want to stop trying to have a "perfect" life and instead, I want to have a happy and carefree life. I want to think less, over think less, stop making up worse case scenarios in my head or thinking about things I can't control. I want to just relax for once.

BE MORE CAUTIOUS
 I know, kind of contradictory, but while I want to think less this year I also want to be more cautious about what I do and how what I do effects the world around me. I want to make my decisions based on what will help this world and the other people living in it. My personality type means I all too often put other people before myself and don't focus on myself enough. I want to do both though, I want to be more aware of myself and my well being but I also want to be careful about what my choices do to the world. That means being kinder to the environment, to people, volunteering, not giving into fast fashion, watching what I eat and so on. I want to be careful of the effect of my actions upon this beautiful but dying world. 

That's it. That is all I want to do, three small goals, everything else fits in between. I am excited for the opportunities the next year holds. I find it fascinating that this year could hold a number of possibilities and I am currently aware of none of them. Bring it on 2019, I am ready.
