This Time Next Year...

Happy New Year! I hope you're reading this with a blazing hangover, having welcomed 2017 in with a bang! As it's the start of a brand new year, I thought what better time to make some resolutions for the next 365 days. Back in November, I was tagged in the 'This Time Next Year' lifestyle tag by the wonderful Pandora from Pandora's Jar of Curiosities, and I thought that today provided the perfect opportunity to share this post. So, let's get cracking!

Rules of the Tag:
  • Thank the person who tagged you (thanks Pandora!)
  • Write your goals for next year
  • Write how you’re going to achieve your goals
  • Tag at least 5 of your blogger friends to share their goals
  • Then, if you wish, in 365 days write a post for everyone to see if you have been successful or not.

This time next year... I'll have graduated from my Masters degree with a distinction.
I'll achieve this by... working hard, retaining my focus, not procrastinating, taking a well-earned rest when I need it, not being afraid to ask for help when necessary, and not giving up!

This time next year... I will have been blogging for over a year and a half!
I'll achieve this by... staying motivated, organising my time well, setting small but achievable goals, staying engaged with the blogging community on social media, and not giving up!

This time next year... I will have a better handle on my anxiety.
I'll achieve this by...  attending a mindfulness course, reading self-help books, talking to friends if I need reassurance, putting myself first when I need to, and not giving up!

This time next year... I will be a more well-rounded person!
I'll achieve this by... learning another language, unleashing my artistic and creative side more, reading more widely, listening to more music, reading the news regularly, and not giving up!

As you can probably tell, my theme for 2017 is don't give up! I really want to make this year a success and being determined and never giving up will be a big part of that. To just keep going and battle through is my over-arching goal for the New Year, and with a bit of grit and bravery, I'm sure I can do it!
