I wrote a post like this last year explaining my New Years Resolutions for me to remember them so I wouldn’t forget and I thought I would do the same again, however firstly I want to look back at last years resolutions to reflect on how well (or how badly) I have done.
Last years resolution was to trust myself more. I feel that throughout 2016 I have done this. I felt like I was doing the wrong thing by going to university to study geography and history in Ireland, as soon as I decided it was wrong, I changed it. I stopped packing and I decided not to go and I have to tell you it has been the best decision of my life so far. I now am at college studying film, media, photography and IT, at this moment in time I know this is the path for me. I now know that if I had gone to uni I would be unhappy and would have probably given up by now. I’m so much happier studying my new subjects in a new environment, part of me wishes I had done this a few years ago as I would have been so much happier earlier.
This years resolution is to obviously continue to trust myself throughout 2017, however, I would like my resolution to be to make sure I’m happy doing whatever I am doing. I need to learn that if I’m not happy with what I am doing or the people I am around I need to stop what I’m doing and do something else, that has been the big learning curve throughout 2016 and I want to be happier throughout 2017. I want 2017 to be a year that I look back on and think happy thoughts about.
Other smaller resolutions include uploading a video to YouTube at least once a week, whether that be a weekly vlog or a ‘main channel’ video, upload one blog post a week and also to see my Grandma once a week, my Grandma is getting old sadly and she is getting more and more complaints, therefore, I need to build and keep happy memories of my Grandma as she means the world to me. Another one would be to swear a bit less (but I know that will never happen!)
I also have little goals in mind for my blog and YouTube channel throughout 2017. I would like to grow both my blog and my channel as I enjoy doing both of these and it makes me so happy and proud when I reach a mile stone. I would like to be at 400 subscribers by this time next year for YouTube, I would like to think that is possible, however growing on YouTube is becoming more and more difficult! I don’t have a number in mind for my blog, however I would like to grow my blog following as well!
There we have it, my resolutions for the new year!
I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a Happy New Year and that I hope that 2017 brings everything that you ask for and when you are old and grey you can look back at 2017 with happiness and love.
Happy New Year!
