2018 Year Goals

16th February 2018
Nora and Woody Reading

January 1st 2018. I unwrapped the flower clad 2018 calendar and hung it in the same familiar spot that held its predecessors. A new year, a new start, full of unknown beginnings and a chance to try everything all over again. And now, January, the month of good intentions, resolutions and more often than not, unrealistic expectations has been and gone, but on that very first day of this brand new year I made an unusual resolution; not to commit myself to too much and to think really carefully about what I want to achieve this year. I’ve spent January pondering and planning before penning my goals, hopes and wishes for 2018. 

2018 will see me leave my twenties behind and enter a new, unknown territory. These years have been so very kind to me, they gave me my business, made me a home owner, a mother. I’ve seen parts of the world I’d never dreamed of, found passions for the most unexpected things. I’m nervous to see what lies ahead but also grateful for all the growing and learning I’ve done this past decade, I think I finally know who I am and that feels so good. I hope thirty brings me more happiness, even more adventures and maybe even a party – we can’t let it pass quietly, surely?!

I spent the majority of 2017 spreading myself way too thinly across far too many tasks which meant nothing I did was ever 100% and I dedicated hours upon ours to stressing and feeling generally rubbish about pretty much everything. I must remember to say ‘no’ more often and to place my efforts exactly where they’re needed. With this last crazy year behind me, I plan to make more time for myself. Self care is so essential for a healthy mindand my goodness me, I have neglected myself this last year. It’s so cliche to say my goal for this year is to lose some of my comfort eating acquired baggage but really, I want more than that. Of course I want to lose weight but more so, I want to look after myself. I want to feel good in my own skin and to feel positive and happy and in order to do this, I need to dedicate time to myself. I so often feel guilty if I’m not spending every spare moment with my babies but I’m no use to them stressy and burnt out. I’ve already enrolled myself into a mindfulness class so hopefully that will aid me in my path to self appreciation and acceptance.

Another huge goal we have for this year is to pick up sticks and leave our ‘five year house’ that we’ll have lived in for seven years this year. We’ve spent so much time and effort on our lovely 1920’s semi but I’m so ready for a new project, somewhere bigger and most definitely detached – these kids don’t have the volume settings for neighbours, that’s for sure. We totally need to get our financial bottoms into gear to make this goal a reality and thankfully we’ve enlisted the help of the lovely folk over at Newcastle Building Society and their brand new Financial Advice Branch in Durham City Centre. Their goal with their new branch is to help people in the Durham area, like us, create a better financial future. Newcastle Building Society are also launching a savings account exclusively for people like us who live within the Durham area. It’s a six month ISA which can be opened with a minimum of £500, offering an interest rate of 1.25% and can be opened exclusively inside the Durham branch. We will be heading to the new Sadler Street branch soon to discuss all things savings to ensure we can hop up that housing ladder a rung or two. Now to move the Right Move app to my home screen and religiously check for the perfect place to call home.

2017 was definitely a testing year and one I’m glad to say goodbye to. I’m certain 2018 is going to be filled with new family adventures, self care and heaps of fun.

    Sounds like you have a busy year ahead of you this year, but definitely agree with you about the self care, we can’t always take the best care of others if we are not our best selves because we are somewhat neglecting ourselves.

    My goals for this year are to finally get the house sorted – de clutter and redecorate. We’ve been here over 5 years now so it’s time we did the things we always wanted to do. I’m also going to train to run a half marathon again this year – I’ve only done it once before but would love to do it again. Finally, but most importantly my main goal is to support our kids – one with her studies in a particularly challenging year, one with his preparation for GCSE’s to start and one with the challenges of learning everything because he’s just 2! lol

I have always wanted to do this walk and after having had PND twice… i think t is now tie o do it. I leave on the 9th of April and Im hoping to do it over 6 days. I’ll be blogging about it and i’ve started my prep .. Best of luck to you and your goals this year!

    My goals this year are to reduce my spending, in order to save to be able to take my family on a family holiday to the sun, something we haven’t been able to do for a while. I also have a goal to seek out and actively get involved in alternative ways to manage my medical conditions, to see if this helps even more, along with medication.

    My goals are to start a blog and earn enough to contribute to my family’s upbringing, perhaps save a little, to love and cherish my husband and children and care a little more for me

    I want 2018 to be a happy and healthy year.
    So far so good! I’ve recently joined a gym as well as doing daily runs and circuits with my best friend. Now to get my diet in check.

    Well there’s one or two I would like.

    After seeing myself last season with some of my favourite rugby players I need to lose weight. I hate the photos of me and them although have been waiting ages to meet some of them.
    I would really love a paid job – I volunteer at the moment and love it, but it’s not busy enough to become a paid position so would love to be in paid employment, I do have an offer of 2 references though when I need them.
    The third one (sorry for the long essay) is something I’ve wanted to do for a number of years. I would really like to learn sign language. Not sure if I would be any good, but another string to my bow if I learnt.

    My goal is to make a start towards saving for a deposit towards a mortgage. And to also make a start on my ‘bottom drawer’ for when I can eventually move out! They are my main two goals to aim towards!

    My goal is to be more organised and keep on top of what I’m doing with work, what shifts hubbys on and whats going on with the kids at school. No more last minute world book day outfits or hastily baked cakes for me :)

  • Reply Pia S 23rd February 2018 at 3:52 pm

    We moved right before Christmas so my goals are making sure my 3 kids settle into their new school and we get our new home renovated and made into a proper home for our family. Then if there’s enough time left from the plastering and painting I’m finally going to setup my sewing machine and make kinds of nice things for the home and the kids x

  • Reply CAROL PATRICK 23rd February 2018 at 5:53 pm

    My goal is to de-clutter and make more space. I have a lot of health issues & I have accumulated clothing in small and medium sizes. I have gained weight due to medication & can’t bear to throw out really good items that are too small for me at the moment. Although I2 carrier bags of clothing have recently gone to the charity shop, I must sort through more. Also kitchen cupboards need sorting, not sure what’s lurking in the back of some of them,

    To loose some weight… I’d be happy with half a stone, but it’s such a struggle ! and to keep up with my Gym sessions, I know it does me good, both mentally and physically.

    My goals this year are to get my whole house completely decorated. I seem to have started every room, but never actually finished one! I also hope finally work up the nerve to get officially diagnosed with Asperger’s and ADHD. The ‘label’ won’t change anything, but it will be a step towards helping me in the future!

    My 2018 goal is to use my bike a lot more, especially as an alternative to taking the car for short journeys. Save some petrol / money, help the planet, and get fitter at the same time. Win Win!

    I fully appreciate the ‘spreading myself to thinly’ 2017 involved too many projects that this year my one and only main goal is to relax, have fun and just glide through 2018 x I need to be more relaxed for my children.

    My year goal is to lose a stone (say that every year!), organise my finances so that I can move into semi-retirement and make a friend after years of putting my family first and being the original Billy-no-mates!
