My goals for 2018

Let me start by saying Happy New Year to you all! It's page 1 of our 365 page story entitled 'My 2018'.
I'm sure there are many of you having made their resolutions are starting to regret making them. Never make a resolution when you have 3 bottles of wine and 2 bottles of vodka inside of you!

Would I say I got New Year's resolutions?

No, I prefer to make to have long term goals. Resolutions usually only last a few weeks or even just a few days if that. I think having long term goals gives you more motivation to strive for what you want to achieve for the year ahead.

I've been thinking about what I want my goals for 2018 to be, there are quite a few that can be fulfilled, but some not quite so much, like winning the Lottery. I don't like to make goals that are near on impossible to achieve. I will feel like I've let myself down if I can't accomplish them.

So I've narrowed my more reasonable goals for 2018 and here they are:
 
A  G O O D  Y E A R  H E A L T H - W I S E 
I went through another calendar year in 2017 without needing IV's. Can I do it again? I didn't think I would get through 2017 without having IV's so who knows?! I had a cracking year health-wise and I hope all I'll need to go to the hospital for this year is just for hospital appointments, nerve-wracking lung function tests and port flushes!

Now, this was one goal I was umming and arring about mentioning. Yes, I want a complete change career-wise. As much as I love working in schools and helping children, I can't see myself doing it forever. In my job, I can't advance any further, that's something that annoys me a tiny bit. I want to be able to reach for new horizons and not be too shy to do so. My biggest passion is writing. I've always loved ever since I was wearing school uniform writing my first 'Once upon a time' story in primary school. My ultimate dream of dreams is to write for Liverpool Football Club. Like said, it's a dream, but possible to achieve.

I only went once last year - I need to go again at least twice this year. I have already booked to go again this year, you will soon find out when...
But yes, my happy place is called my happy place for a reason and I shall see you soon my darling Liverpool. Here's to more, as me and my best friend Tasha say "Heart falling out your arse" memories.

This is something I've been looking to do for a while now. What blog posts do I like writing about the most? What sort of blogger do I like to class myself as? Am I more of a lifestyle blogger than a fashion blogger? These are the questions I am aiming to answer in the coming weeks. I need to establish myself as one or two category blogger. Or I could just class myself as the blogger who writes a mixture of different subjects and topics. Hmm, tough decision...
 
F O C U S  O N  M E
Yes, this does sound a tiny bit selfish, but bear with me. In 2017, I didn't really think about what was best for me, I always like to make others happy before myself. Some may say that's a good characteristic to have, others may say that it's a personal flaw. The last few weeks of 2017 were a real big example. Making a decision to please others when it was making me unhappy. Why did I do that?! I need to put my happiness and welfare first sometimes, so that's what I will do in 2018.
 
What are your goals for 2018?
