I’m not one for new years resolutions, nor am I one for making un-realistic goals. I believe in setting yourself small achievable aims which are tailored to you. For me, it’s always been the smaller goals that in the long run make the difference and I believe these are just as rewarding.
I’ve recently been having a think about what I would like to do to try and make 2019 a successful year and where I would like to be in a years time. You can’t plan out exactly how a year is going to turn out but you can have a rough idea in which direction you would like it to head and I’m hoping that 2019 is going to be a positive one with these three little aims that I have set myself.
Work has always been a sore subject for me however, I love my little job. It’s not where I wanted to be when I planned my life out when I was younger, nor do I imagine staying there forever but for now, its perfect for me. Saying that, I would like to progress and I believe that with my health slowly heading in the right direction, now is the time to move forward. In the past few months I have been able to increase my working hours, I am coping a lot better with more physical activity and I am sleeping a lot better meaning I am able to cope with the longer days.
My second aim is to make the most of my days off. This may seem silly but for me currently, days off are literally do nothing days because my body cannot cope with a lot else. Now, I’m not saying that ‘do nothing’ days aren’t important because believe me, being chronically ill those days are extremely important however, I would like to make better use of my time. As much as I enjoy chilling and down time, sometimes I feel I need to relax somewhere other than home and that I need that little extra push to drag myself out of bed.
And my final aim is to have a holiday. A proper holiday. Whether that be a mini break in the UK or a holiday elsewhere, I’d just like to be well enough to go away. Again, for some reading this you might be thinking what? A holiday? Well truth is, I haven’t been on a proper holiday for over ten years because of my health and it would mean the world to just have a break away from home. Knowing that I finally feel well enough to not worry as much and enjoy my time a lot more, I feel it is the perfect year for a break.
Remember, when setting aims or thinking about ‘resolutions’, set goals that are right for you. Don’t worry about other peoples aims or what their aspirations are, do the right things that make you happy. If it takes a little longer than someone else, does it matter? If you are happy with where you are in life right now, then perfect. That is absolutely fine.
Never forget, you’re in control.
You must make the choice, to take the chance, if you want anything in life to change.
Happy New Year and all the best for 2019.
All my love,
