So I've decided this year I will do my utmost to push past the self doubt and lack of motivation and put some targets in place that I can try and accomplish. If I don't, so be it, but I want to at least say I tried. So in no particular order they are:
Get healthy, both with my diet and with my fitness. Due to having chronic fatigue the latter is and always will be a struggle, but I do feel I've become very stagnant and somehow need to push myself. I am also at the heaviest I have ever been and bordering on overweight. As a young adult who never ever struggled with my weight, it's been a huge shock seeing the weight pile on and I know I need to do something about it, if only to improve my mental well being about the whole thing as I am pretty low about it.
Earn some money. After nearly six years of blogging I think it's time I tried to make an income from sitting in front of my computer for hours at a time. I've been looking at others who have been successful in this and trying to pick up ideas and tips as to how I can do the same. I have also been looking at how I can transfer the skills Ive learnt through blogging to try and do some freelance work. Watch this space.
Try and manage our money better. In the last few months there has been a lot of uncertainty in Mr H's work and that has meant our income has been less than it was. However because it can be so uncertain and we were confident that it would soon return to normal we didn't really adapt our spending. So now is the time to try and have a good look at what we spend and try and manage it a lot better - and another reason for me to try and bring in some income.
Try and enjoy the moments. This has been a focus of mine for a few months as I am very aware that these days with the children are fleeting and I want to make the most of them. Sometimes, though, life really just gets in the way and tiredness and being busy takes over and you forget to just enjoy yourself. So this year I'm going to start my happiness jar back up and write down our happy little moments as well as try to sit back and look at what is around me and take it all in.
