Well here we are, a new year. I know 2020 was a shit show, I think that we can all agree on that. I know that everything is not going to be better because it is 2021, but things are looking up😊.
So just like a lot of people, I set myself some goals for the new year. NOT RESOLUTIONS, goals. See last years post if you want to read my dislike of the word resolutions
Looking back at 2020s goals, I didn’t really complete most of them and that is OK. I have to be easy on myself. I also recognize that I didn’t have a lot of drive to do a few of the things on my goals list.
Anywho, 2020 is in the past. Let’s look forward to 2021’s goals.
1. Get 1000 followers in Instagram
Last year I had the goal of 500 and I was 120 follows short at the end of the year. I know what I need to do to get the follows and I really just didn’t do that. I have to be more consistent and create some quality stuff. So let’s see if I can make my goal in 2021.
2. Learn to roller skate
Last year, I bought roller skates. I use to roller skate and roller blade all the time as a kid and I thought I could just pick it up again. That was a hard ass smash on the ground NO. As an adult I know very well that my balance is great. I feel like balance is a big part of my roller skating goal so for the rest of winter I will be working on that and ankle strength. Hopefully in the summer I will be rolling up and down the block!
3. Read 21 books
In 2020 I had the goal of 20 books and I got there (YAAAAAY🥳) Naturally for 2021 I have to up it. Even if it is by only 1 book.
4. Blog consistently
This will probably always be on my list because as a blogger you kinda have to do it and sometimes I am a lazy ass. I actually feel like I did pretty well with this one last year and because I have planned out a lot of the stuff for 2021 I should be good to go👍.
5. Be more mindful
This one is just something I always need to set as a goal. I feel like it is something I can always work on and especially with my new job. I always have a million things in my mind and I need to remember to take time and breathe.
6. Go to therapy
I am hoping that putting this one on my goal list will make me more accountable. I have really been meaning to go to a counsellor for a while. I did try one out back earlier in February, but what I thought would be an amazing set up was actually not at all what I needed. And then COVID happened, so I fell off the boat with it. Hopefully this year I will put more effort into it and actually find a setting that will work for me.
I really want to write 10 goals, because in my mind that is what is required of lists, it has to be divisible by 5. However I think that this is a good place to stop; and not having my goals at a certain number helps me break that standard that I set for some odd reason.
So tell me about your goals! Are you setting some for yourself? Let me know in the comments, I would love to help and cheer you on!
Until next time,
