New Year's Resolutions 2015

Hello lovelies,
It's that time of year again - when we are supposed to set goals for the next year and then give up on them a few weeks into the new year.... but not this year.

I have mixed feelings about new year's resolutions.

On one hand, I think they are fantastic - we should always be setting goals, and why not do it at the end of the calendar year - it seems natural.

On the other hand, we shouldn't have to wait a WHOLE YEAR before setting goals for ourselves. We should be able to set long term goals, medium term goals and short term goals which might even be on a daily or weekly basis.

Then there's the other thing about new year's resolutions that everyone thinks you'll just give up. Or it's the norm to stick to your goals for a few weeks and then give up until the next year comes along. This kind of thinking creates such negativity around the subject of new years resolutions.

I don't always set new years resolutions but I like making promises to myself. My whole fitness journey actually started as a new years resolutions in 2013 and look at me now, still going strong! January 2015 I started this blog and promised myself I wouldn't give up on it after a few months and here we are 82 blog posts & one year later and I've only missed a few weeks here and there.

And for 2016?

Move to London for my Master's in Marketing

What are your promises to yourself for 2016?
