At the beginning of this year, I made the decision to not have any resolutions because it’s always just a list of things that I will fail at. This year is no different, but I am going to set goals for myself because I am sick of floating through life.
- Study – I signed up for an online course a couple of weeks ago and I’m waiting for my course information to be delivered. In 18 months I will have a Diploma of Web Development. I’m doing this for me, and for the blog. I’m sick of feeling scared every time I do something with code, so I want to be able to learn to do it properly.
- House running efficiently – At the moment I am mid spring clean. I have had a family of mice move into my roof, who have now moved into the house after heavy rain. It’s time to get on top of things and keep the house visitor ready. This doesn’t mean it needs to look like a page of home beauty, but it does mean I need to do housework more often. I’m going to go back to some of the FLY principles that I have used in the past, especially using ad breaks and timers to do housework.
- Continue therapy – Sometimes it feels like it is two steps forward and one step back but I know that I am making progress, especially with how I express emotions. The thing that I need to work on is being more engaged with Mr 5 and what he is doing. I’m aware that some of the things he is doing are because he is trying to get attention from me, regardless of whether it’s good or bad. With him starting school next year, there is going to be less time that we spend together, so I want that time to be quality.
- Being more organised – This is a pretty broad one but I know that it can be measured. I have mentioned multiple times about how much I love lists, and I really want to utilise those and a calendar more next year. I know that with Mr 5 starting school next year, there will be a lot more things to remember and trying to remember them all makes me anxious, which impacts my sleep. The lack of sleep then makes my memory worse.
A few people also choose a word to help navigate their year. I think the word that I want to show us the way through the next year is GROWTH. There is so much happening for us next year, and I think that it really does have the potential to change us, for the better.
Do you set goals for the New Year?
