Happy freakin’ NEW YEAR! I can’t believe how quickly 2019 flew by. This year I got so many different opportunities to travel to my favorite places like Portland, Seattle, San Francisco and Mexico! Does anyone else feel like 2019 was a practice round year because a new decade was coming soon? For me, 2019 was full of adventures and not really caring about being financially responsible. With a new decade starting I got so motivated to take seriously what I want my future to look like. Time to grow up! Seeing people in their late 20’s/ early 30’s talk about their lives at the beginning and end of the decade inspired me. Being only 20 years old and I am looking forward for this decade to be filled with reaching all kinds of milestones and goals.
Being the new year, I of course decided to write down some resolutions! I kept it really simple and only made two. I feel like we tend to want to completely transform our lives at the beginning of the year with all these resolutions that we drop come February. I made only a couple of goals that I could realistically focus on throughout the year.
Here are my new year’s resolutions:
- Work on being physically, mentually and spiritually healthy.
- I know I’m not always the kindest to myself and I really want to work on that this year. Really making it a habit to take care of myself mentally is so important and very overlooked. I know everyone wants to work on their health at the beginning of the year but I really want to start making changes in what I put in my body and how I take care of it.
- Invest in my knowledge
- School doesn’t teach us everything. A big area that I feel everyone, including myself, can use a bit more education on is financial literacy. I really want to push myself to truly invest in learning about topics that were never taught to me in school. Specifically talking about personal finance, as an aspiring business owner or just as a person who wants to be financially independent, I want to learn how to be better with my money. We all work so hard in our jobs to spend money recklessly. This year I want to educate myself more on topics that will help me push forward.
Overall, we shouldn’t feel some kind of pressure to make life changing decisions on New Years. Everyday is an opportunity to learn, grow, and change our toxic traits. Try thinking of 2-5 realistic goals and really stick to it. The biggest part of reaching goals is finding out your “why”. Why are you wanting to reach this goal? Finding your “why” is going to keep you focused with the eyes on the prize!
