New Year goals, resolutions & updates

Sigh, the first day back at the grind after the joy of Christmas & New Year festivities. Yep, it's definitely a set of first world problems, but it's this time of year when resolutions are made (to be kept for a few weeks then forgotten), the year past is mourned and plans are beginning to be made for the next 12 months.



I don't make resolutions as a rule (rebel that I am) but I've decided to set a few loose goals.

- Love, laugh & live every moment to the full
- Admit when I'm getting tired and take rest
- Practise overhead and manual photos, both of which I'm terrible at
- Everything in moderation (except brunch and bubbles which will be imbibed as often as possible)


I've also quickly scanned through my 101 goals in 1001 days list, and with a few unrealistic goals I strived to do (swim 50 laps, run an entire 5k and photograph red squirrels in the wild) I know that there may be a touch of disappointment in February when I run the full total but there are so many experiences I wouldn't have had if this wee milestone counter hadn't been running in the background of my conciousness.

The question is shall I run up another 101 goals, draft a life bucket list of some kind or find another project to run?

What are you planning to do in 2015?

  3. Great Ab Fab image! My 101 list will probs leave me disappointed too, but, like you, I like to refer to it as inspiration!

  5. I like your goals for the year! Sometimes it's so easy to forget these small but important things like getting rest and just living in the moment when we have so much to do. I am going to be working on my photography as well this year so I can't wait to see what you do!

  6. I toyed with the idea of a 101 in 1001, but to be honest, it's just such a long list to make! In then end I came up with a combination of a 26 before 26/resolution list for 2015.


    I will definitely be practicing more of my photography this year (not that I thought to add that to my goals...), I'm not great at city photos or taking more every day photos. I'm hoping a 365 challenge will help me with that!


    Here's to 2015 and I hope you achieve all your goals!

  7. I think bucket lists are good as you said you've done things you might not have done otherwise. I don't write them because I feel crap when I don't complete them though!

  8. Admitting when you are tired is a good one! I always burn myself out and then CRASH

  9. It's been a great rainy day inspiration list - I'm thinking of running another one but can't decide if I can cope with the possible disappointment (just being a bit of a diva right now)

  10. ...and I kinda love that we probably wouldn't have achieved so much if we hadn't had it?

  11. I don't because the few years I have it's like a red rag to a bull and I normally destroy the good intentions before the end of the month. Oops!

  12. 365 challenges are awesome - I did one and it's how my blog was effectively born! Do mini-challenges within the 365 it helps, especially in the dark days of winter!

  13. Exactly, although mine only really started in September (it took me the best part of the year just to write the list)!

  14. And just think of all the things you have done that weren't on you 101 and 1001 list!
