by - 12/03/2019 12:00:00 AM

For the last couple of years, I've been sharing with you guys my overall goals for the following year. I post this information on the blog for several reasons, and one is to keep myself accountable for my goals throughout the year. This year has taken so many twists and turns, and honestly, I didn't see a lot of it coming. This year I really worked hard on my reading goal, and I've already had excited my expectations. I might even share some of the books I read this year with you guys. I've also had been getting better at just not buying to buy I really started implementing that during the after Christmas sale last year. It's so easy to put things in your chart when they're 90% off or simply on sale. Below, I've crossed out the goals that I've really enforced in 2019. I still have so many areas in my life that I have to get better at. Do you have any goals?

Update: 19 Things that I want to Start, Stop and Splurge On

1. Read More- I did horrible reading this year. Not going to sugar coat it. I just have to get better at making time to read.
2. Date Myself- This year was the first time that I consistently dated myself. Even when I was single I never dated myself this much. I love every minute of it. I explored so many new places, and just had an overall good time.
3. Stop buying just to buy! - I did great with this in 2018, I want to continue to not buy just to buy.
4. Treat myself- I still struggle when treating myself, however, I jump for everyone else. I guess it's hard because I've stated that I want to stop buying to buy. It would be nice to treat myself though.
5. DSLR- (Learn how to shoot in manual mode) My photography has improved, however, I still don't know how to shot in manual mode.
6. Nails Done- I want to continue keeping my nails done. I did really great with it this year, and I want to continue with this routine in 2019.
7. Quality- I want to invest in a couple of high-end pieces for my wardrobe. I have to really narrow down the pieces I want and maybe create a buying schedule.
8. Planner- Spend more time using my planner, checking it daily, and really using it in depth.
9. Hobby- I didn't attend any classes this year, however, I'm still open to the idea. I love crafting and baking, and I just have to take time out for me.
11. Travel often - I didn't travel as much as I wanted to this year. I would love to travel more.
12. YouTube- I just did horrible with YouTube this year, not sure what's up with me. I just have to do better.
13. Language- Learn the basic phrases. (brownie points, if I learn a new language.)
14. Silhouette machine - Mid-year, last year I rearranged our home, and typically around this time of year, I use my machine a lot. However, I really do love using my silhouette and I have to get back into the habit of using more often.
15. Drink more water - For some reason, I struggle with drinking a lot of water during the colder months. I have to be more consistent with drinking water no matter what time of year it is.
16. Self-Care Day - This year I did pretty well with incorporating a self-care day. I know this wasn't mentioned in my last year. However, I really love having self-care days, and I want to try to be more consistent with having them.
17. Makeup- I've noticed that I've done well with doing my makeup, However, I haven't really done any dramatic looks. Not sure what's up with that, however, I really do enjoy playing in makeup.
18. Get Dressed Up - I noticed that when I'm dressed up my entire mood changes. I have to get better at being overdressed. I used to be really good about this.
19. Minimalist- I want to continue to purchase what I need and all areas of my life.
