Eek! Less than a year to go before I hit that point where I should probably figure out how to adult. (Why don’t we instantly learn how to adult when I hit thirty, right?!). I actually created my 30 before 30 list when I turned 28 to give myself two years to complete it. It seemed apt to try and get down what I wanted to have achieved in the next two years. Since I have less than a year left, I thought it best to review the list and see if there has been any progress towards it in the past year. I know I did not dedicate as much time as I would have liked last year towards it so this is something I will have to actively add to my planner over coming months.
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.
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.
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!
I started off my return to blogging by talking about my goals and what I hope to do this year. However, talking about goals and actually achieving them are two very different things. So today, I wanted to invite Alyssa Pierce from The Sacred Space to come share some of her favourite tips to stay inspired and work on those goals. Let’s work together to achieve your goals! Over on her blog, Alyssa regularly offers tips and advice to help stay motivated. So without further ado, I’ll hand it over to Alyssa to share her five top tips today with you all.
