As we storm through 2021, we have had plenty of opportunity to set ourselves some goals and begin to review how far we have come with them. Here are a few of my 2021 Goals and New Year Resolutions.
Before I begin with my separate goals, I always start each year by looking and curating a word of the year. This is something I have done for the past 4 years, and gives me a little insight into what I want to work towards and a little flag to aspire to. This year, I chose the word create as it not only signifies my newfound love for artistic creativity (although I am still slightly lacking in the talent field), but it also highlights how at 22 it is time to create something for myself, a life I want to lead, act in the way I want to and think in a way I admire others for doing so. It is time to create a positive mindset, a positive outlook and hope for the future.
Now I have covered my word of the year, I want to highlight just a selection of the things I want to achieve in 2021. Firstly, I want to create a healthier lifestyle. This may sound incredibly typical and obvious as health or losing weight goals are incredibly common, however my goal comes with a slight twist. Notice how I haven’t set myself a particular weight? For many years I have fallen down the rabbit hole, stating how much I will lose in any given time, which I most often fail to meet. This year, I am focusing on the way I live my life and creating habits which are healthier not only for my body, but also my mind. I have put into place a fitness regime, nothing to extravagant but just 10-30 minutes a day of light movement to help me stay mobile and destress.
2021 will also be the year where I create an income goal which allows me to fulfil my dreams and is continuous. My initial goal will be to bring in £500 a month. Whilst I do not need to go too much into my personal incomings and outgoings, I know that £500 a month is a nice rounded number which will allow me to live a comfortable life. Eventually, I would love this goal to increase to £1000 a month, or even £2000 a month to match me with the average wage. However, goals should be realistic, hence why I would like to begin at just £500 a month and progress from there. I also want to create a look which fully represents me and helps to boost my confidence.
2020 was certainly the year that I began to find clothes which made me feel like me and now I have a whole year ahead of me to develop my sense of style and identity, learn how to piece my clothes together to ultimately aid me in self-love and beauty and appreciation of my body, no matter what.
My last goal I would like to share with you today is that 2021 will be the year that I create a future. If you missed my 2020 video about university, I embarked on a new journey of my life after enrolling into The Open University. This has led me to further research the jobs and education I want to pursue in the future, so whilst I am still only a Year 1 University Student, I feel now is the perfect time to get a few plans in place so I am aware of what I am working towards and how long it will take.
I hope you enjoyed reading this post about some of my goals of 2021. Did you set yourself any goals or New Year Resolutions this year?
