Well, fucking finally.

2016 is finally over. We can leave this absurd, dark and at times just plain scary year behind and move into a better one. One where political decisions are logical and sane, where bigoted misogynists don’t get handed entire countries and where my heart doesn’t clench in fear every time a celebrity’s name is trending on Twitter. (And I’m sure David Attenborough is thrilled at the prospect of being released from the padded room we’ve all forced him into. Don’t look at us that – we’ve lost enough national treasures this year.)

Yes, the 365 day-long period that managed to turn a number into an expression of hopelessness, contempt and utter horror (you all know that when anything bad happens now, we’re just going to turn around and say “that’s so 2016”; don’t deny it) – is now over.

Deep sigh of relief. We made it through.

(Ironically, 2016 for me personally was a very good year. I’ve been very happy, I’ve made a lot of progress in my life and I managed to achieve most of my resolutions too. But I don’t want to say that too loudly, because it feels like standing up at a funeral and being like “damn, I feel alive!”.)

Now, to make the most of 2017, it’s time to make some goals and resolutions. Last year, I focused on New Year, Successful Me – and I think I succeeded. So, although that’s not my focus this year, I’m going to continue on with that progress with a few goals.

2017-resolutions

New Year Successful Me Goals

  • Be earning $10 a day through affiliate programs
  • Start a website and sell it on Flippa
  • Create shop landing page and separate section of site
  • Submit shop section to Google shopping
  • Start an Etsy business using DIYs
  • Get through a month blogging for every day
  • Start a side business
  • Start ranking for new keywords on Google Search Console
  • Keep a planner (and an artistic journal because a happy, creative mind is the key to success)

New Year Healthy Me Goals

Now, I toyed with the idea of this year being New Year, Creative Me – but what I want to really focus on in the first year of my adult life is improving my health. It seems easier to develop healthy habits while I’m still young and continue them into my later life.

  • Start eating healthily
  • Make sandwiches and lunches for work
  • Bake a healthy cake (or meal, but cake sounds better, don’t you think?) on Sundays, and take servings to work with me
  • Learn to cook!
  • Get back into smoothies
  • Start making my own soup
  • Start meditating (mental health is important too!)
  • Start doing exercise classes; at least one per week

Okay, so these are my New Year Resolutions! What do you guys think – and what are your resolutions for the New Year? Let me know in the comments below. (And, if you haven’t, feel free to check out my 18 Bucket List and add some hopefully not too crazy ideas to it.)

All the love,

  1. Great resolutions and good to know that I’m not the only one that has been panicking over David Attenborough’s safety (read: checking his Twitter for recent postings). All the best for a happy 2017.

    1. aw thank you so much – you too! And seriously, i think that would be the final straw. when i saw a paper saying queen was too ill for christmas i almost choked on my tea.

  2. I like you resolutions. Mines are mainly based on self growth and progress. I 2016 I was feeling stuck , so this year I really want to move forward. Good luck with your goals, I hope you stick to them. Also Happy new year. I hope 2017 is even better than 2016 🙂

  3. Love your goals <3 <3 I am also getting back into smoothies 🙂 🙂 I agree that meditation is so important, it makes a big difference in daily life. May 2017 be an amazing year for you x x

  4. Love these! I’m an Etsy addict, so if you get set up on there, I’ll be looking! 🙂 Also, reading your goals made me think you might like Kate Hudson’s book, “Pretty Happy”. It gives a lot of good tips on eating healthy & how to meditate. I loved it! Wishing you all the best in 2017!
