#12DaysOfBlogmas// My Goals for 2020

No way is the last post if my 2019’s #12DaysOfBlogmas series, I really hope you have enjoyed it and if you have missed the rest of them I will link them here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here and here for your viewing pleasure.

This post is going to be my personal goals for 2020, now I don’t want to have them so strict or specific because I want to be able to have healthy and achievable goals to work towards. I don’t want to shame myself or others if the goals aren’t actually met, this isn’t to become a negative experience it is just nice to have things to work towards over the year.

Start therapy

Over the past few years my mental health has been a real rollercoaster for me, I have had some pretty high highs but also some fucking low lows. However the last three months have been the hardest (if you don’t know what I’m talking about then check out my life update: where I’ve been and what’s happened and that’ll explain all) and I have recently decided I want to attend therapy. I have made the first step into doing that by applying for therapy through the NHS, and I am currently on a waiting list for it. I explained to my GP that I had been struggling over a few years with finding ways to effectively process my emotions and my problems which causes me to kinda power down and lose control of my life. This is top of my list and I am really going to prioritise my mental health in 2020.

Get stronger

In the latter third of 2019 I joined the gym and started a lifestyle upheaval, I decided I wanted to make healthier choices on the regular and so I have been regularly going to the gym. However I have just been doing cardio to build up my stamina and my confidence in the gym, however in 2020 I want to do some strength training to make myself physically stronger. I have also found that doing regular exercise has really helped me become mentally stronger too as it gives me time to myself and even if that’s the only thing I do in that day at least I have worked on myself. So I want to create a stronger mind and body in 2020.

Form and develop more healthy relationships with things which I struggle with

There are many things in my life that I have an unhealthy relationship with and so in 2020 I want to form and develop more healthy relationship with them things. Most of these are quite personal to me and so I want to be quite brief with this goal but it is one of the more important ones to me. One of these things are guilt, guilt is something which I carry really heavily and it is one of the main causes of my mental health issues. So guilt is going to be something I am going to work on during therapy sessions so that I can form a much more positive relationship with.

Expand my education

Education is one of the most important things to me in the whole world, I mean it is the field I am wanting to go into in my future. The passion for learning and education as come from my dad and at his funeral everyone talked so much about how much he loved to learn and wanted to teach others, which has massively inspired me to expand on my education in 2020. I have applied for university which I will talk more about during the coming months and it is a way in which I am going to start expanding my education with.

Be more intentional with my words and my actions

Earlier in 2019 I talked about the term intentionally in a blog post and I really want to refine myself on that. I want to have good intentions behind my actions and my words. I want to do everything with good intentions and I want to be much more sincere in everything in my life. If I am around somebody I want to be present and be sincere with them, and I only want to do things for people for them and not for any other sort of gains. It is just something that is really important to me.

Have a beauty NO buy from 1st January until my birthday (9th May)

In my #12DaysOfBlogmas// My Makeup Inventory and How I’m Going To Cut It Down post I talked about a beauty no buy that I want to implement in the first half of 2020. I want to cut down on Beauty spending and also waste, I want to get use of the products I have bought and loved much more and appreciate everything in a way it deserves. So I am going to buy no makeup in the first half of 2020 and just love everything I have already.

  1. ah girl, you have so many amazing goals for 2020. Being in therapy was pivotal for me in my life (and when I was dedicated to it – so was exercising).

    As always, I appreciate how open and honest you are with your struggles and whatever you’re going through. For me, I need to work on healthier coping mechanisms for dealing with stress rather than shopping… and learning how to love makeup without spending money I don’t have.

    Wishing you nothing but the best in 2020 and hope you love uni! I think it is wonderful how your dad has inspired you to do this and he would def be proud of you.

    1. Thank you so much lovely for all of your support this year, it is so appreciated. I’m just trying to better myself and make myself a much more healthy person in so many ways. I always want to share with people that life isn’t as perfect as it can seem and it’s okay to ask for help. I hope you achieve all of your goals and have an amazing 2020! Thank you so much🧡
