Hello, dears. It’s finally 2019 and I’m so excited about what this year’s gonna bring to my life. 2018 taught me so much about myself, my choices, and my goals.
I came into 2018 severely depressed with little hope for the future. I didn’t have any new years resolutions back then as I didn’t believe I could commit to anything.
It’s funny how everybody jokes about new years resolutions. About how it’s very likely you’re not gonna last till the end of January.
I get that – it’s a funny thing to joke about if you don’t have a good sense of humor and can’t think of anything original.
I like to hear about other people’s resolutions.
It’s very personal cuz it’s like admitting what you dislike about yourself and it takes a lot of courage to find your flaws and even bigger to want to get better. Everyone wants to be the best version of themselves there is nothing funny about that. With the beginning of the new year it’s only natural you feel like you can become a new version of yourself as well. Whether you stick with your resolutions or learn to live with your flaws for one more year that doesn’t really matter.
Wanting to change is what’s important.
I have made a few new years resolutions or goals for 2019 myself. I’m in the best place (mentally) I have ever been in my entire short life but I still believe I can be better. I want to improve in what I’m already good at, do something different and explore more.
I want to keep blogging.
I want to keep spending most of my time on the internet working my ass off even though my decision is not well met with my closed ones.
It’s difficult to explain why I don’t want to drink and a party that much. Why I can’t spend my after-work time out in the city when I have another job to work on after my first job. It’s hard to explain that this is what it wants to do. That it’s exciting and relaxing at the same time and worth spending my free time on.
I want to write more personal stuff, more opinions, more thoughts. In 2018 I already stepped out of my comfort zone writing about very personal topics but the goals are to do it better and bigger.
The most personal stuff I ever wrote:
- How mental health affected my eating habits
- Road to self-love is a mess but it’s worth it
- The honest story of my University dropout
- Moving out Moving on
- Let’s talk about love
I want to post at least 1-2 times per week. I want to extend my audience, be more in touch with my followers and readers. Try my best to reply to your kind comments I’ll work on it I promise.
I want to dress according to my fashion sense.
I spent a lot of time recommending your brands, clothes, styles, and outfits but I feel like I still wear the same jeans and shirt to work. I am finally at a job where I can actually afford to buy designer clothes and that’s what my goal is.
Dress how I like other people to be dressed.
I want to buy that colorful coat that none of my friends like but I do. I want to combine that different patterns that I would simply not be allowed to do in my small hometown. I want to catch your attention. The goal is for strangers to see my outfit. This is Prague for god’s sake. Nothing is prohibited.
I want my fashion brand to be legit this year.
It’s been 9 months now since me and my co-founders started working on our brand. A lot has changed over this time and I’m so glad we didn’t rush into it like I wanted to. I am the youngest of us all and I want to accelerate the whole process so much. I’m so lucky to have much wiser women along my site who would slow down my excitement at needed times. I look at things differently now. I had a lot of time to think, to explore, to learn that lead me into being more cautious and calm about this whole process.
I’m still super thrilled but I don’t want to rush into anything. I want my brand to be the best it can be. The best we can create. I want it to be morally and ecologically okay. I want our advertisement for the brand to be just right and if it takes a little bit longer than I originally intended then I’m just gonna go with it.
Website and shop 2019 for sure though. That’s the goal.
I want to travel.
I’m in love with the cities I’ve never been to and with people I’ve never met.
2019 will be the year of my first solo trip. I want to visit countries I have never been to so I can scratch down my world map and get a few steps closer to my longtime travel the world plan. My goals are to go to Switzerland, to Spain, to Ireland, to Ukraine, to Finland…. hopefully I’m gonna travel much more this year.
I want to start drawing again cuz God I miss it unbelievably. It’s the feeling of creating something that satisfies me so much. Whether it’s painting, writing, or even cooking.
The fact that I can bring my thoughts and ideas into real physical form is chilling.
I don’t like to look at or even keep the final art thought – that’s why I’m so fond of cooking as you get to destroy your creation right away. I just like the process much more than the product itself.
I want to exercise and eat healthier.
Typical new Year resolution – and hardest one to keep but I’m just happy that so many people realize their lifestyle is not good and want to make a change. I would like to minimize the amount of fast food I eat just as the amount of frozen food I consume. I’d like to add more fiber into my diet and I have already started by taking fiber supplements daily. I believe I have enough exercise as it is already cuz I’m on my feet all day long at work but I’d like to add some simple at-home fitness while watching Netflix.
I’d like to take things as they are.
I don’t want to live that stressful life like I did before that left my health a mess. I don’t want to rush and push. Everything will work out eventually and my whole life so far has been proof of that. I never knew my strength before 2018 happened but now I know no matter what god/destiny/universe/luck/or chance brings my way I’ll deal with it when I get there.
I would love to hear about your new year’s resolution and your goals in the comments.
I salute your effort, support your will, and wish you a great time living the new you.
I leave you in my first 2019 article with a wish of a happy new year full of health and prosperity and my wishes to you are greatly summed up in this quote:
Thank you so much for your attention
May all your goals and dreams come true
