Happy New Year! I really do hope that 2018 brings more happiness to people. I have a wide array of big life events that are happening this year, and some pretty big goals that I have set for myself. Some of these can be considered resolutions, but the idea of viewing it as a goal checklist may end in greater results for myself.
Getting married & Road tripping around Iceland
My fiance and I have been engaged for over 2 years, and our wedding plans have changed numerous times, but this year we are finally getting married! After we have our celebration, we are going to be traveling to Iceland and road tripping in a rental camper van for a couple weeks.
Writing my Novel
I have started writing a couple different books before, but I never stuck with it, but I started writing my major outline before 2017 ended, and I am dedicating myself to my novel this year more than any other of my goals. I, of course, have plans for it afterwards, but want to focus on actually completing it. I feel that it will be a huge accomplishment in my life.
A large semi-secret
There is another huge life event that I am dying to share, but there are some major reasons why I cannot yet. I can say that it’s something that feels a bit like starting over, again…but will hopefully be a great decision for us.
Writing more, in general
I have said this before, but writing allows me to feel so at peace and I want to share more. I am joining some writing groups and plan on tinkering around with what things to share on the blog.
Self-Care & Body Positivity
Everyone always has lose weight as a resolution and goal, and although that is also one of mine, I also want to focus on being good to myself, of finding things to love about myself and telling myself only positive things, not the negative, and shape the way I want to change myself around positivity and clean, healthy effort.
I used to constantly volunteer as a child and young-adult and I miss being active in the community and actually contributing to change.
