Reflecting on 2019 And Why I Have No Goals for 2020.

Is it me or do the years just seem to be going faster and faster and even worse we’ve just left a decade that I started as 15 and now 25 now that is terrifying!

Either way 2019 for me has probably been one of the best years of my life but it has also had it low points but I have come out the other side like I always seem to do. I wasnt going to write a end of year post but I wanted to reflect on the year and explain why I won’t be setting any goals for 2020.

This year I have realised that I need to start putting myself first and looking after myself and stop always trying to keep people in my life that don’t try with me. I am good enough for the people who genuinely care about me and that’s a huge thing for me! Sometimes it’s better to have a few close friends than a big circle and all the drama.

A new year doesn’t have to mean you start working on yourself but I have no problem in people working on self improvement or realise that you actually deserve better, it can be powerful to do. So let’s have a look back at my achievements this year before I talk about why I haven’t set goals for 2020.

Achievements Of 2019.

There has been a few achievements that I am very proud of and have definitely made my year these would be reaching over 1,000 followers on Instagram, meeting new friends that I have made online, improving my mental health, getting into fitness for real this time! Finally making amazing memories with my partner and exploring new places together.

Why I’m Not Setting Any Goals For 2020.

For the first time in a long time I am not setting goals for 2020 don’t get me wrong I have few things I want to do this and the main one includes doing a skydive. The past year I have been watching a YouTube channel called Yes Theory who live by the motto “seek discomfort” this means stepping out of your comfort zone, doing something your afraid to do even if that’s saying hi to a stranger ( seriously go watch them! ) since watching them it’s made me realise you have to do something your mind says is wrong and get an amazing kick from it! This year I don’t have goals to stick to but I will be doing a charity skydive in my Yes theory hoodie and I’m excited but nervous but I can’t wait to push myself out my comfort zone and SEEK DISCOMOFRT!

All I’m trying to say is maybe take a step back live in the moment think what scares you and maybe try to push yourself past your mind saying no and you can achieve something crazy trust me. Even if that’s saying hi to a stranger in the street, taking a photo with them just do it. “a stranger is a friend you just haven’t met yet!” (that’s one motto from Yes Theory”)

Here’s to pushing ourselves this year, achieving things we didn’t know we could and to happiness and good health! Do you have any goals set this year?

    I don’t have set goals for the year either – more aspirations that I would like to work towards each day. But I love this idea of seeking discomfort and pushing yourself out of your comfort zone. Good luck to 2020 and I hope you enjoy your skydive!

    It does seem like the years are flying by, especially now that we’re in a new decade it’s crazy to think we’ve started a new one! This year is the first time I’ve set goals for myself, just to have a bit more structure, but if there’s one thing I want out of 2020 it’s to accomplish even the “unrealistic” dreams and not limit myself, there’s so much we’re capable of once we push out of our little bubble 🙂

    A skydive sounds so exciting / terrifying. If you haven’t done so already, I hope you’ve got it planned soon! 🙂
