My Personal Goals for the New Year – 2017

What’s up you guys! I know this post is a bit past when I should be announcing my new year resolutions, but I guess there’s no time like the present right? Regardless of timing, I felt like my goals still needed to be documented and written down for my sake, and also I think maybe my goals can inspire you to realize things you guys would like to accomplish in your own lives. So, here are my 5 goals for the new year:

Make Content. Be Creative
If you read last week’s post, you know I have made plans to get back in touch with my creative endeavors. Last year, school was great and it also kept me busy, but towards the middle I began learning how to organize and manage my time, and with this control over what I’m using my free time for. I want it to be used to make content for this site and getting closer to my career goals.

Health
Health is wealth, and with that being said I want my mental health to be okay. I think in life, we get caught up in everything and we take it on all at once. For me, I think it so much easier to handle a things when I think about what I need to do to make through today. I also, want to try and get more in the gym, so I can improve my overall physical fitness. Yeah, I know “everyone says that and gives up by March”, but I guess I’ll just be reiterating them too.

Title Boxing

Travel
This one seems more like a cliché goal to have, but is it not it a goal many of us would love to be able to do more? Well, I would love to have more opportunities to travel around the globe and just meet people, talk to them, and just open my mind more about the world around me.

Compete with Yourself & Learning to Be Aware of My Own Journey
In the age of social media I definitely think this can be hard. We are consistently seeing an abundance of images where this person is here, and this person is there in their career. I found myself becoming more and more disappointed with myself, like I wasn’t doing anything meaningful because “look at them, they’re doing it”. I began feeling like the work I was doing wasn’t another step up the mountain because people who are doing what I want to do, are doing it everyday, successfully, and us being the same age didn’t bring my spirits up either. I eventually realized it wasn’t healthy for me to do that. I found that I was becoming disappointed at things that I couldn’t control, but more importantly wouldn’t take me to where I wanted to be career wise, money wise or life. I also, realized anything that the posted didn’t subtract or take anything away from where I am now and what I’m doing now to get to where I want to be. These people who’s lives I was viewing an Instagram picture at a time, were completely independent of me. Life is a journey not a destination. Our paths are our own, and when your constantly comparing yourself you’ll always find those in a better circumstance or a worse one.
