2015 Goals

Goals… goals, goals, goals. Indeed.

It’s hard to think what I want to be doing with myself this year… Running a business takes up a lot of time and effort, and in the evening and at weekends [when we have them spare] I don’t really want to be pushing myself to be doing all that much.

The things that I came up with for this year fall into three main categories. Upgrade, Organise and Share.

The first category UPGRADE: what I mean by this, is finally getting around to all the things I’ve been meaning to do for yonks. It includes buying a pair of trainers to replace the Nikes I’ve had for 6 years, they have holes all over and I have a bad feeling that they will soon be able to talk back to me. I’m very picky with footwear, so it takes me a long time to let go of such a trusty pair. I will do it though. I deserve a treat. I also intend to replace some of the tired looking things for the house.

Next  we have ORGANISE: Lately I’ve been leaving things until the last minute to deal with. Or letting things mount up until it feels like too much of a job to deal with. My main goal in this category is to sort out my postcards from PostCrossing, I want to display them in such a way that they are nice to look at, and pleasing on the eye. There must be a better way than shoving them in a box. I also want to make the most of my cloffice space. There is a lot that needs to be done here … I need to get a boit creative with the space, as it is mainly a wardrobe room. We’ll get there.

Final category is SHARE: This covers a multitude of things. Part of this will be sharing with you guys, I want to talk more about my hobbies on the blog. Be this showing off swap goodies, writing about subscription boxes or crafty things that I’ve been getting up to. I want to tell you about it. So that is a thing I’ll be adding this year. I also want to do more happy mail projects this year, you know, spreading a little bit of love to the world in the form of trinkets and notes to people that make me smile, or that deserve a smile.

There is also the obligatory reading challenge, I’m sticking to the same format as last year for now. I plan to read 100 books again, if not more. I hope that I get there, but if I don’t at least I’m back reading again after a couple of months off books at the end of this year.

Last year I took on too many swaps and projects at the same time, so I plan to spread them out better this year. I don’t want to overcommit. I’m going to try to limit myself to two swaps a month. Princess Penpals is currently on the back burner, but I am hoping to get back on this and get my second letter out soon. If you don’t know what that is… then go and check it out here!

That’s all for now, I know that a lot of this isn’t groundbreaking, but these are what we have to work with. My constant attempts at healthy eating and being more active still toddle on in the background, I’m finding food a chore right now, and I dislike winter greatly, so these things will come back with time.

What are your goals for this year? Did you make any resolutions this year?
