New Year, New You 2020

People often get reflective towards the end of the year or the start of a new one. It’s a great time to start planning your new year, making resolutions or reevaluating what’s important in your life. This time, that’s doubly the case for me. Almost two months back, I handed in my notice. I had absolutely no idea what I’m going to be doing in 2020. For the first time, I didn’t really make any plans. I just knew that I wanted a change. In order for the end result to be different, you have to change the process. You can’t stick to the same habits, the same hobbies and the same behaviour but expect completely different results.

2019 Goals Review

Wow, okay, so it’s somehow been almost a year since I wrote my 2019 goals. A lot has happened since I wrote this post on the 11th January and whilst my blog has not always been a priority, there are definite moments when it has been a success. I wanted to take a few moments to step back from the hectic lifestyle of everything and just reevaluate where I am and how far I have come.

25 Christmas Bucket List ideas

I have decided that there is no point in doing things with half effort. So, when I do something this year, I am going to try to either go all in or not at all. I hate half-assing my way through life. Of course, both physical and mental health can be a huge factor in changing that for me but the point is, my new motto is to at least aim to go all in or not at all. As such, I decided to go all in and make a Christmas Bucket List this year. I am quite keen to share this with you as I think it’s a pretty fun idea. A Christmas Bucket list is usually a list of Christmas, winter or overall festive things that I want to do or perhaps see this winter. I have listed all of the ideas that I came up with – in case you wanted to come up with your own bucket list for the season!

Besides, I can’t really do Blogmas without having some sort of Christmas bucket list, can I? I came up with this list pre-December so I have already started to work my way through them but there’s still plenty of time to come up with your own list if you have not already!

30 Before 30

It’s dawned on me that I am a lot closer to thirty, than I am to twenty now. I have already done a few of the things that I wanted to do at this point. However, there’s certainly a lot more. There are some bigger things – like actually buying a house – that I’ve not gotten the chance to do yet. But more than that, I realised that there are a number of small things that I keep saying I’ll do and simply just never got around to. It was “I’d like to do this sometime” but without a fixed deadline or date, it never really happened. So, it seems like a good time to start a 30 before 30 list of things that I want to try and do in the next couple of years. A number of these are, most definitely, stationery related goals. A few are things I’d just like to do more of, and so have set some targets for them.

I’ll be honest… A number of these were influenced by my Stationery Self-Care post, which lists a bunch of ways that stationery can help improve your self-care routine. It’s something I need to focus on right now and that’s why, I think they quite rightly deserve to be goals that I aim to achieve. So without further ado, here we go~
