NEW YEARS RESOLUTIONS 2017
I must admit, I don’t normally set myself new years resolutions, mainly as I thought they were nothing more than a gimmick. But with a whole new career path with huge goals in mind, I thought they’d be a great idea to keep me on track to the things I really want to achieve.
As the new year rolls in, setting yourself things to accomplish is the perfect way to boost your sense of motivation. Whether you write them down as a constant reminder, or subconsciously remember the things you want to achieve, there’s certainly no harm in aiming big.
I love to see other people’s resolutions for inspiration and encouragement, so I thought I’d share mine with you too!
Travel as much as Possible ✈
I’m just completely obsessed.
I already have a lot of things planned for 2017, but the more places the better.. I really have no idea where the road will take me, but no doubt it will be memorable.
Be more Eco-Friendly ☀
Being environmentally friendly has been a big change for me in the year of 2016, this year I want to step it up a notch.
There is only one earth, and in my perspective, we really do have to take care of it or else there’s no hope. I’m trying my hardest to find sustainable alternatives to things in my life, including travelling and lifestyle.
It’s a big goal that needs a lot of work, but it’s so very important to me.

Remove Plastic from Lifestyle ♽
One use plastic products are incredibly destructive to the environment. As much as plastic may be convenient, they’re also completely unnecessary.
I’ve already cut out a lot of products from my lifestyle that are incredibly damaging, but I’ve set myself a goal to remove them all together.
Write over 150 Blog Posts ✍
3 blog posts a week for 52 weeks, that’s 156 posts..
I’m allowing myself a few days off, so 150 it is!
Grow Social Media ♥
I love photography. I’m certainly no professional, but sharing photos from my travels is something I find so very rewarding.
Create own Product ✄
This is definitely one of my favourites.
At some point in 2017, a huge goal of mine is to design and create a product to sell. There are few ideas that I have in mind that I think any traveller would love to have – Unfortunately I’m keeping this one a surprise, so there will be no spoiling here.
Donate every Month $
As someone who lives in a country with a lot of privileges, supporting people around the world who aren’t in such a position is incredibly important to me.
At the end of every month, I want to donate to a different organisation to help the people of this planet who really are in need.
Help out at a Non-for-Profit ✧
Following from my last resolution, I’d really love to support a charity/organisation that is tirelessly working for the better of our world. It’s important for us all to give back in whatever ways we can, I think it’s time for me to give my fair share.
Be more Compassionate ♡
Compassion over Comparison. It’s something I’m constantly working and improving on, and also something I’m never going to give in to.
Work on Relationships ➳
Whether that be with my partner, friends, family or new acquaintance… Working on relationships and better connecting with people is something I’m really striving to achieve.
Live life with a Purpose ❀
I want to live life with more meaning. With a reason for all my actions; to think hard, challenge my thoughts and always have a purpose.
