Resolutions...

I've never really been one for new years resolutions, realistically if I'm not doing something now, deciding to do it in January isn't REALLY going to change my mind. I made resolutions last year and just didn't stick to them at all so I was apprehensive about doing the same thing this year. I thought for this post I'd go through last years resolutions and decide how well I fulfilled them and come up with a good list for 2020 by building on 2019s goals and putting it in a blog post and posting it on the internet keeps me accountable!

Grow Online Following
I didn't grow my following that much this year but I've created a following that engages and enjoys what I have to post so I count that as a WIN! Obviously, the goal is still to grow my following more but having people actively engage and enjoy your content is all that creators want!

Will I stick with this goal in 2020?: Yes!!


Spend Time curating good online content
I think I did this one well, with Instagram so increasingly becoming a cause of stress and anxiety I wanted to be mindful about the content I was creating and not just sticking something up on Instagram for the sake of it, being open and honest online, say when I was struggling and not just post the highlights reel. 

Will I stick to this goal in 2020?: Yes


Read at least one book a month
This one I FAILED in all caps! It's funny because it's actually something I did with no problem in 2018, 2019 was just a really poor reading year for me and I'm planning on righting all of my reading wrongs this coming year!!

Will I stick to this goal in 2020?: Yes (and hopefully I'll actually do it this time)

Launch photography business
I did and I didn't, I put myself out there and got some paid gigs but I haven't officially launched anything yet... will this be the year I finally do it? Probably not because final year of uni is KICKING MY ASS but you never know what the new decade will bring!

Will I stick to this goal in 2020?: No, but I'm not ruling anything out!


Read entire Bible
Another one that fell flat on its face! I started out with the best of intentions I joined a bible reading group on Bible app but I inevitably got kicked out due in inactivity...oops. This is still something I want to do but I, unfortunately, don't think that 2020is the year for this either.

Will I stick to this goal in 2020?: No, but I bought a new year-long devotional so that is a new challenge for this coming year for me to stick to

Be more organised
I think I actually managed this one, I don't have anything to show for it, I bought a planner and didn't use it but I'm definitely more on top of my work so I guess I'd say I'm more organised than I was last year... maybe.

Will I stick to this goal in 2020?: This is a goal I'll have to stick to for the rest of my life because I am the princess of procrastination.



Some extra goals for 2020:

  • Eat less meat
  • Manage my money better
  • Pick up a language again

Do you make resolutions? If so what are your resolutions for 2020? Maybe it'll inspire me to try something new!
