Happy New Year Everyone!
We’re finally out of 2016, and I couldn’t be more excited for the year ahead. I already have some fun stuff planned but I wanted to push myself to make this year one for the books, so I’ve set a some goals to keep 2017 interesting!
1. Visit 5 new places
I plan on making this a goal every year. I love to travel and I want to challenge myself to get to at least five new destinations while I’m still able to move freely. There are a few domestic cities I’d like to visit this year as well as a couple of international ones.
2. Have 10 new experiences
Whether this be wine tasting, attending a performance I haven’t been to or bunjee jumping, I want try/do ten things I’ve never expereinced.
3. Give Like the Drum a face life
I’m kind of over the basic WordPress templates and want to do a more custom design that fits the aesthetic I want LTD to have. So, I’m going to reach out to a couple of my friends who build websites and try to come up with something different for the site.
4. Create a Youtube channel
I really want to start filming videos especially travel vlogs and tips. I like writing about my experiences and what not, but I think a more visual component to LTD would be cool to do as well.
5. Cook at home more
Moving away from the blog into my personal life, I want to start cooking again. At the beginning of 2016 I cooked most of my meals but with being at work so much, I basically only started eating food from the restaurant. This year I want to try to move away from always eating at work and cooking healthier meals for myself at home.
6. Take better care of myself
Kind of going along with my previous goal, I want to make sure I’m taking care of myself in 2017. And I mean this in all senses– physically, mentally and spiritually. I think we get so caught up in day to day life that we neglect our needs, and this year I hope to stop doing that.
7. Invest in quality products
I’ll admit I’m someone who likes to save money wherever I can but I also know its sometimes worth it to spend a few extra bucks for something finer. That being said, I’d like to start upgrading some of my current stuff to better quality products.
These are my main goals for 2017 but I do have some smaller ones that I also hope to accomplish. I’d love to hear your new year goals, so comment below about what you want to achieve this year!
