2019 Aspirations

by - Saturday, January 19, 2019

Sure, it might be past the middle of January, but I'm going to share some of my goals for this year anyways. As I mentioned in my last post, I'm feeling so excited for 2019, and I'm ready to get a lot done. Hopefully, you're all feeling the same way, and if not, it's never too late to seize control of this year and make it what you want!

1.  Move from Blogger to Wordpress
2.  Go self-hosted
3.  Purchase (& decide between) one of the Pipdig themes I've been coveting for ages
4.  Hit 50,000 blog views at the end of the year. I actually hit 10,000 this past year, and I don't think I've ever really celebrated that, so yay!!
5.  Genuinely grow an interactive audience
6.  Grow on my other platforms: Twitter, Instagram, & Pinterest
7.  Be creative & enjoy the process!

1.  The most basic resolution of all time: get in shape, but seriously, I want to be in really good shape this year :') I've got some specifics in mind
2.  Become a full-fledged, long-distance runner again. Haven't ever gone past 3 miles, and it's been over 5 years since I would train for that, so I'm determined to hit a lot of milestones in that regard.
3.  Be independent in every aspect
4.  Read 50 books, at least. This used to be easy for me; I would read far over this mark every year, but college has made this so difficult. So far, I'm doing really well!
5.  Get a lot better at the piano and reading sheet music. Learn some of the pieces that I've been meaning to. 
6.  Take excellent care of my skin. Have proper routines.
7.  Spend time with my friends, make more memories with them, and have a life :') 

1.  Love Jesus more, love others more
2.  Read my Word more, pray more
3.  Be grateful: a grateful person is a happy person
4.  Have more compassion and kindness
5.  Be a gracious woman
6.  Be patient and understanding
7.  Pray more for my country and my future

This is a bit of the crazier, more far-fetched hopes for this year. I'd love to see at least one or two of these come to fruition, but I'm gonna put some of them out there and see what happens ;)
1.  Go listen to Ben Shapiro give a speech
2.  Move out and live on my own (or with friends)
3.  Go see the Iron Bowl
4.  Go to Texas and see if I fall in love with it like I think I will hehe
5.  Go on a few trips with my friends
6.  Go to a Switchfoot concert
7.  Maybe, just maybe, go on a trip by myself to one of my favourite places

I have quite a bit more goals for each of these categories, but these are the main ones. I always enjoy writing these up at the start of a New Year; it inspires me and pushes me to make sure I work hard to achieve these goals. I want to make it a monthly habit of looking over these and analysing my progress. 

Do you have any exciting goals or plans for this year?! Let me know in the comments!

I only made an Instagram last month, and I'd love to be friends over there; follow me @twinklexthoughts :)
