2015 Goals

Hey guys,
I know a lot of you don't believe in New Years resolutions.
But don't worry this isn't one of them. This is post is going to be about goals. Around the beginning of Spring I set goals for myself for the year. 
I feel like Spring brings new life, fresh starts
& better weather.
So here are my 2015 goals!


1) Read more books
17 to be specific, I think last year I read maybe 5 books at most. ( excluding textbooks, I read a hell of a lot of those). I am currently reading The Rosie project by Graeme C. Simsion.
Let me know if you have any recommendations! 

2)  Push myself  & face fears
This was my goal last year as well. I pushed myself to do things I found intimidating & scary .Doing this made me really proud and accomplished. This year I'm also going to push myself to do my best in everything I do.


3) Run 5 k
This one scares me to be honest, now I have said it it means I have to do it.
This year I am going to start jogging & become consistent with it. I have the gear now all I need to do is put my ass in gear too. I am thinking about doing a whole blog post about this ( if I eventually do start jogging) let me know if you would be interested in reading that.

4)  Blog more
 ( you probably saw this one coming)
Last year I had a lot of exams & my sister was getting married too, unfortunately this resulted in a an abandoned blog. At the second half of the year I got my mojo back & have had huge motivation to blog. For 2015 I want to blog my heart out & create posts I really love. This is going to be my creative outlet.


5) Learn how to play the guitar
Last year I learned how to play the ukulele by myself & I really enjoyed it, this is something I want to carry into 2015 with me. But the guitar is the next instrument on the list. Mam & Dad even got me a beautiful guitar for Christmas so now I have no excuses.

Thank so much for reading this post, it means a lot.
Leave me a comment telling me your goals for 2015, I'd love to hear them!

Love always,

      Thanks for your comment it means a lot ;) xx

  4. You have really great goals! I love all of them! Just some advice, if you can invest in some running shoes that would be great. Converse is ok but the thin soles aren't very good for jogging because of the high impact. So it can be quite hard on your knees and hips and it's better to protect those. Maybe just keep it in mind :)


    1. Thank you so much! You read my mind, I got a pair of Nikes womens runners last week. I suffer from shin splints so hopefully they'll help :) Thank you so much for your advice :) xx
