Reflecting on my 2017 Goals

 2017 has truly been a whirlwind of a year. I've changed jobs, moved house and treated myself to a new car, as well as exploring four new countries! At the beginning of the year, I set myself a couple of goals so I thought I'd have a look back at them and see which goals I can tick off!

Travel somewhere with one of my best friends from uni, Mary. We've been saying we're going to do this for three years now so 2017 is the day it will happen! No matter where we go we will have the best time I'm sure. Mary and I travelled to Stockholm in May and had such a fun long weekend! We're hoping to go to Copenhagen soon...

Finally buy a light-box and focus a bit more on my photography! I found it very frustrating last year, but only time will tell if I can improve it a little. I did buy a lightbox, but I certainly haven't focused more on my photography.

Rent, or buy (if we miraculously find a house!) a place to call our own. We're excited to be moving out but also so grateful to my parents for putting up with us for nearly two years! It's definitely the next step for us to take and I am so looking forward to it. Dan and I moved into a little one bed house at the beginning of the year, and we're still loving being together!

Go to at least three new different places: maybe even a new continent! I love exploring the world and seeing new places so this is another year to go continue to do so. I'd love to visit Germany or Poland this year! I visited four new countries, and another city in Spain! One of the new countries I visited was Poland as well which was incredible.

Learn a new skill. Learning a language, or a bit more about SEO would be great. I'm hopefully going to be able to have a bit more time to do so as well so that's exciting! Technically, I'm not sure I can count this but I've had to learn lots of new skills with my new job which has been exciting. I'm really enjoying it so far.

A very generic one, but I want to get a bit more active! I really enjoy swimming but memberships are so expensive. I want to find something that gets my heart pumping without spending too much money! A definite FAIL!

Keep up with my gratitude journal; I have been doing this for two years now and really helps me to focus on the good. Especially on bad days! I actually decided to stop writing in my gratitude journal this year because it stopped being beneficial for me. I'm still aware of being grateful but no longer feel the need to write these things down daily!

2017 has been a year of change for me, and I've loved it. I've seen some incredible places in the world, settled into my new job and house - I'm excited for what this next year will bring.

Did you set yourself any goals for 2017?
