2016 Goals

Hello everyone! I hope you all are having a sunny day :)

Today I wanted to talk about my goals for the year of 2016. This past year was great, but I feel like I just coasted through. This year I want to set attainable goals and work to achieve them. There is definitely a sense of accomplishment when you set goals for yourself.

My goals for this year have a lot to do with my blog, but also my life in general. I didn't want to set too many because I want to give 100% to each.

1. Achieve 1000 followers on Instagram 

Instagram is a platform that I got into this year. I really want to work at it more and create better content because I think it could be a really great outlet for my blog. I almost have 500 followers and would love to get to 1000 this year. Here is the link if you'd like to check it out :)

2. Get healthy

I know this is probably on everyone's to do list, but I think it is really important. I make an effort to go to the gym at least once a day, but an area that is lacking for me is eating healthy. A lot of times I will just grab a bag of chips because I'm always running around. This year I want to prepare healthy snacks for myself so that I feel better physically and mentally.

3. Volunteer

You all know this is always one of my goals, but this year I want to devote my time to this. I want to get more involved around my campus and do something to help people at least once a month. If you have any suggestions of fun ways to volunteer I would love to hear them!

4. Blog once a day 

This one is definitely hard for me especially when I am at school. I get so caught up in homework and stuff that I put blogging behind everything else, but not this year! I plan on trying to blog at least once every day for the next 362 days.

5.  Encourage  

During school I am always so busy that sometimes I forget about the people around me who are always helping me achieve my goals. This year I want to thank someone or encourage someone at least once a day whether it be my friends, family or my followers!

6. Distinguish Anxiety 

I have always been an anxious person and it is really hard to keep the worry at bay. This year I want to try and not think about things I can't control. Worry inhibits me from doing a lot of things and this year I want to change that. I would love to talk to any of you that also suffer from anxiety.

7. Eliminate gossip 

As women gossiping is something that comes natural, but I find that it is really not helping me accomplish anything in life. It is pointless and I would really like to cut it out. I want to build people up, not tear them down!! :)

Those were my goals for the year of 2016. I know I am not perfect and I know achieving these will be hard work, but I know by New Years Eve of next year I will be proud of myself for trying. I would love to hear some of your goals for this year down below!

Have a beautiful day!

  1. These are great goals! I have pretty much exactly the same instagram goal as you, I also want to reach 1000 followers and I want to post at least a photo a day to help that (I'm @curlyandwordy).

    Well done for aiming to blog every day - that's amazing! I'm sticking to every other day and that's hard enough for me haha.

  3. I absolutely love all your goals and even found some shared resolutions we have. <3 I'm definitely following. ;)
    One major goal I have this year is to take better care of my skin and body - from the inside and out. I'm hoping to do a healthy living series on my blog later this year, so please do let me know if you'd like to participate. If so, I'll definitely shoot you an email when it's time to plan and discuss. Love it!

    1. Hello! Thank you so much! I would definitely love to participate in your healthy living series. I should probably add healthy skin to my list as well :))
