The first thing I want to reflect on is the “resolutions” I made for 2017. I made a post here that outlined what I hoped to achieve, so I figured I’d start with seeing how I got on.
Of the resolutions I vowed to definitely do, I managed three of the four. Getting down my finances, working hard on Closet Geek and spending time enjoying family life. Since moving house in June (which is another tick on the list), I have generally felt so much happier in life and working hard but spending time with family has seemed even easier since then. Finances have drastically improved, though there is still a long way to go. Sadly Christmas pushed me to the limits on some of my credit cards but I’m several other accounts down altogether.
Of the resolutions I said I would like to do, I pretty much managed both. We sold the house and moved which was one of them, then booking a holiday abroad was the other. Though we technically went for a week to Jersey (which is abroad, but also not really) it didn’t really feel like abroad. Luckily though we have booked something for 2018 which I can’t wait to share my plans for!
Finally I had some ideas for things I would try to do, but were really only lifestyle improvements. There was getting things done and not putting off till tomorrow, there was going swimming and there was spending more time with friends. On some ocassions I definitely succeeded with theses, but on others I know I failed. I hope to try a lot harder this year with some of the points but perhaps with others its best just left as is.
Though I don’t want to dwell on the things I didn’t manage to do, weight loss was a big no (though I did try at times) and posting on my blog personally, wasn’t as often as I liked. I hope to work on some new resolutions for this coming year and I will update once I’ve figured them out!
