New Years Resolutions

I am a big believer in the power of a new day, a new week, a new year, and a crisp, blank page of a notebook unsullied by any ink or thoughts. So it won’t come as any surprise that I love taking the time between Christmas and New Year to write out my resolutions for the year ahead, and getting started on them as soon as I can.

I wanted to share my NYRs with you here, and hold myself accountable by updating you on my progress throughout the year…

  1. Unfollow anyone on social media that is posting about diets/eating clean etc. This is the first year in about 14 years that I haven’t started the new year on some diet.
  2. Have a shower and get dressed everyday. I’ve been living the pyjama lifestyle for too long…
  3. Eat dinner at the table with my husband.
  4. Pay off my credit card by the end of 2019.
  5. Complete and pass AAT Foundation Certificate in Bookkeeping.
  6. Make exercise a part of my daily life.
  7. Move to forever home.
  8. Have a glow up.
  9. Publish 100 blog posts on Country Made Girl.
  10. Start a feelings/creativity journal.
  11. Complete the second year of my five year memory journal.
  12. Go for a smear test.
  13. Change over to my married name once we move. I got married in 2014, so I really should have myself together now, but there you go…
  14. Go back to my ginger roots.
  15. Do a style overhaul. This might take a little time to save up the money, and find pieces that will become a part of my new capsule wardrobe.
  16. Get new glasses.
  17. Make time for my spirituality every day.
  18. Get my ears pierced.
  19. Get a tattoo. (Yes, I agree, I am probably having a mid-life crisis…)
  20. Finish writing that novel I have been working on, and find an agent.
  21. Start posting daily on Instagram.
  22. Start posting daily on Twitter.
  23. Try mochi. Blame the ASMR videos I watch at night on Instagram…
  24. Switch to eco pads.
  25. Make a new friend.
  26. Read and review all young adult books on the blog.
  27. Do mensa/IQ test.
  28. Write more poems.


Some of my resolutions are bigger, or more important than others, but I like to have ‘silly’ or smaller resolutions in with the bigger ones because I want to build momentum to keep going with them, and I also like to have fun.

What are your NYRs this year? What is your smallest, or most fun one?
