Happy New Year, It’s 2018!!! Lol, yay yay I know I am really late, but that’s ok cuz who gonna check me, lol! Naw, but for real I am late and it is completely okay! If you ever heard of the story about the tortoise and the hare, lol I’m the tortoise of course! After the holiday I am all tired and worn out and it takes me longer to bounce back into the groove of things. AND I AM NOT ASHAMED! I knew I would come back when I was ready and today is that day, soooo, HAPPY NEW YEAR, again!
I know the tradition for a New Year is to write out your goals at the beginning of the year for all to see and examine, but I like to think and make sure I’m clear on what I want to achieve for the year. 1st let’s review last year’s goals and see if I achieved them. This going to be a quick check, but you can read the full post by clicking here.
- SAVE MORE!: This was was a win for sure, I saved so much money last year, check out how I save $9,000 in six month & $16,000 in 11 months!
- BE MORE CONSISTENT: I was way more consistent in 2017, but not as much as I should have been but it was step up from 2016 for sure!
- TIME MANAGEMENT: So, yea this was a big fail, I got a lot of things accomplished last year, but it was definitely not planned, lol!
- TRAVEL, TRAVEL, TRAVEL: I smashed this goal last year, I went so many places, check out where I went here !
Alright re-cap done, now 365 days to achieve this years goals, so let’s see what I got in mind for 2018!
If you have been following me for while then you know last year I became obsessed with my finances. Last year I was able to pay a lot of debt and save over 16,000 dollars. This year it’s go big or go home! I am committing to paying a whooping $10,000 in principal payments towards my car. This will allow me to pay off my car in two years, so excited to achieve this accomplishment. I am about to Slay 2018!
This will be a bit of a challenge, in 2016, I was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease. Check the full story here. After my surgery in 2016 my diet is limited and I had to cut out a lot of foods. So I am challenging my self to try and eat healthier this year regardless of my limitations. And to kick it off I am going vegan for 31 days starting today! I am also going to commit to doing some type of exercise for 30 mins for the next 31 days! Lord, I hope this goes will, lol!
TAKE BETTER CARE OF MY HAIR:
If you didn’t know I am a bit of a hair influencer on YouTube, lol. I have been taking care of a growing my hair for the past 10 years. My hair has grown and thrived more then when I had other taking care of it. Last year I really neglected my hair thankfully I didn’t damage it too bad, so in 2018 I will do much better.
Everyone has thing that way to change about themselves and it is not always linked to looks. I want to work on my and improve my attitude and patience. Anyone who knows me understand that I have no patience and that just makes my attitude much worse. This year I want to learn to step back and think before reacting to things that would normally lead to me being coping and attitude or being inpatient. This will take a lot of work, but I here for it, it needs to be done sooner rather than later.
READ, READ, READ:
I am a avid reader and last year I just couldn’t find the time to read as much as I wanted too. I challenged myself to read 25 books last year and was shy about 2-3 books. The year I hope to reach that goal and exceed it. Check out my previous reading list here, here, here and follow me on Goodreads!
