A new year can mean a lot of things, for me one of the first things it means is new goals and plans. I personally love hearing about others goals and plans because I love to support others and I also find it super inspiring and motivating for my own journey too.
How I set my 2019 goals and plans was through doing the New Year Challenge which I created (read it here - ‘Darling, this is YOUR YEAR New Year Challenge‘ ). This challenge really helped me to hone in on what I wanted for 2019.
My 2019 Goals
Short term everyday goal.. I will move my body daily
I really miss being more active in my daily life. In all honesty I have felt a little lost when it comes to my health and fitness lately and have been unsure of my direction after letting the busyness of life get the better of me. Whether I get up early and go for a walk around my little neighbourhood before work, go for a walk on my lunch break or sign up to a local yoga studio, I will move my body daily the best I can.
Long term goal for the year.. I will be smarter with my money
I’m doing ok financially but I do still have some debt that I need to rid myself of once and for all (though I don’t have a credit card anymore which I’m super proud of), and now I have started the big journey of fixing my teeth too, so being smarter with my money is going to be really important. in 2019 my teeth will be my focus which I think in turn will actually help me pay off the rest of my debt as I won’t be looking for short term satisfaction with this goal in mind. I will be having some maintenance done first, then my wisdom teeth taken out and then once that’s all healed and my dentist gives the ok.. I will be getting braces, which I might have on by the end of 2019. It’s going to be a long road, but I know it will be worth it, I just have to be smart and focus on what’s most important.
Dream goal.. I will create and produce an Ebook
I have dreamt about creating an Ebook for as long as I can remember. I have dreamt about producing something which I can finally monetise because I put so much effort into what I do online it would be nice to have a way of helping me fund it so I can continue it. This goal for me is really exciting, not only will it help me with the above goal, but it’s a step closer to my even bigger goal of one day writing a book. I love that saying.. ‘Start where you are, use what you have, do what you can.’ which is exactly what I’m going to do.
My 2019 Plans
To motivate me to move my body daily I will be scheduling my workouts in by at least 1 week in advance using my beautiful Lorna Jane 2019 Active Living Diary + I will be laying out/packing my activewear each night before bed.
To help me to be smarter with my money I will do up a detailed budget which will include daily/fortnightly/weekly and monthly expenses in an Excel spreadsheet + I will download a money app to keep track of my daily spending.
To inspire me to create and produce an Ebook I will put together a vision board specifically for this purpose, first on Pinterest and then on my pin board at home where I work + I will begin to research all of the how to’s when it comes to publishing an Ebook, because the truth is other than the content itself I really don’t have a clue where to start, especially when it comes to how to monetise it.
I am so excited about the goals I have set and the plans I have made for 2019. I absolutely cannot wait to share the journey of them all with you this year, my sparkling reader, on SPARKLE on darling (especially my Ebook journey).
I hope through sharing my own 2019 goals and plans you found some inspiration and motivation for your own, when we share we inspire and also hold ourselves accountable to achieve. If you would like to share your goals and plans for the New Year I would love you to do so in the comments below, let’s inspire and motivate each other.
All my love,
