“I can’t believe it’s the last day of 2018” has been the phrase most said in the Snow’s household today.
This last year has just flown by for me. When I wrote my “a look back on 2018” blogpost, I realized that I remember what I did every month. I also still find it strange that it’s cold outside, as if summer just ended.
Each new year brings with it a feeling of a clean slate ready to be filled with new projects, adventures and self-improvement goals.
Here are a few things I would like to achieve in 2019 that I have been thinking about repeatedly.
Now that I’m working full time and workout three times a week, I have less time to work on my blog. Ever since I started working on it more seriously, my goal was to post regularly and at least twice a week. But recently, I’ve been struggling to work, workout, sleep, visit my parents and blog at the same time. I end up each night exhausted and barely keeping my eyes open every Friday night.
In 2019, I want to organize myself better so that I can fit in more productive times to work on my blog. I love this little corner of the web and I would love to expand it. I still want to create quality content though, so I might have to resolve to only posting twice a week.
Regarding social media, I’m trying to really curate my platforms. The end of 2018 was filled with a lot of despair regarding Instagram and how little my account is growing (think follow/unfollow game).
I realized that looking at my feed often would make me feel bad or down. I already started by curating who I follow to only follow accounts I love and who fire up my creativity.
In 2019, I’m going to try to keep this organization but also to engage more. For some ridiculous reason, I always feel like I’m not “good” enough or “important” enough to engage with bigger accounts (aka every account I follow pretty much as I’m super small). But I always want to so I’m going to do my best to really comment more and react more.
I’ve always had the traveling but this year, it’s been stronger than ever. I love traveling and I want to do a lot more of it this year. First on my list (and of course, super expensive) is New York and Montréal.
I’ve been thinking about it a lot recently and talked about people who visited Montréal and it could be the best city for us to move to a couple years. But before actually thinking about it it’s necessary to see the city for ourselves and why not include NYC at the same time as it’s close by!
Northern Italy is also high on my list, it’s such a beautiful country and damn the food is good.
I would also love to go back to London and I wouldn’t be mad to visit Amsterdam as well…
I feel like I say this every year but I’m still not there: self-confidence. *big sigh*.
I’m so sick of always wanting to change things about my body and comparing myself. It’s such a bad thing to do to my mind to be so negative. Instagram has definitely not helped – hence the big clear-out – but I also think it’s a mind problem.
This new year, I want to continue to work on my fitness, but also to work on the mental side of it. I want to turn 25 and feel confident and beautiful. I want to stop looking at myself and mentally cutting off chunks of my body. Here’s to feeling good about our body!
That’s a tough one. 2018 has been such a hard but good year for me. It’s the year I’ve really realized that I have an entrepreneurial mind and need to be creative to be fulfilled. I also became aware of how hard it’s going to be to turn my dreams into a reality.
2019, I’m hoping you’ll be there year where I can take a few steps into the right direction. I want to have a clearer idea of what I want to do, how I want to get there and where my life should settle.
I’m scared. I often feel down about it, like it’s not going to happen for me because I’m not good enough. But I want it so badly and I know that’s where I’m supposed to go so here’s to working my butt off to get there.
Wish me luck…
What are your resolutions for this new year?
