I don't make resolutions, I never stick to them. But there are some things I'd like to do in 2017. My goals are pretty low key (mostly) because I don't want to fail any of them. So I've kept them achievable. I think! ;)
They are, in no particular order

1. Sort out my relationship one way or the other
2. Get off zero hour contract at work and be made permanent
3. Lose a stone (14lbs) in weight (I need to lose more but a stone is a good place to start, as I said I'm trying to keep it realistic)
4. Decorate my living room
5. Start exercising
6. Go easy on the alcohol
7. Be kinder to myself and treat myself with the same empathy I would others
8. Try to forgive myself for past things I can't change
9. To try and open up more to my family
10. Be happier than 2016

Wow, reading it back it's quite a list!! Not sure I succeeded in keeping them low key. But this is it! This is what I would like to achieve in 2017!
7-10 are going to be tough, but I need to give them a go.

Please feel free to share your resolutions/goals :):):)

Great lists everyone :)

Mine would be:
1) Be nicer to myself and learn to love myself.
2) learn to have fun
3) be forgiving, myself, for my past mistakes
4) get back into being creative with things and have my kids involved so they learn as well to be creative (for their uniqueness).
5) becoming more social by getting out and meeting people instead of hiding at home.
6) learn to laugh more
7) be okay to cry and make mistakes (to realize and accept I'm not perfect)
8) find better ways of coping instead of self destructive ways.
9) find a new, fun activity to do with my family

So far, that's all.

1. Lose half a stone. Last year my goal was to lose a stone (14 pounds), currently I am down 18 pounds and for the first time in living memory I am in a healthy weight range.

2. Sign up to a gym or sports club where I can exercise each week because I've only done a few hours of exercise this whole year. I'm so lazy.

3. Go out more. I get told off by my parents for spending too much time indoors lol

4. I would like to move out by the end of the year if I have enough saved up. This is a big ask, but it doesn't have to be completed in 2017, I can make progress towards it.

5. Go on holiday in Europe.

I try not to make new year resolutions since I tend to fail them all anyway... But here goes!

1. Learn to truly love myself
2. Rent a place or buy a place I can comfortably call home
3. Get a dog
4. Come to terms with my breakup
5. Learn better coping mechanisms
6. Open my heart to being loved and loving again

Some of them sound romantic and trivial, but hey, loving yourself starts with being honest right? And I want to be loved.

I need to get back to exercising. I feel so good after exercise it's a wonder I don't do it. I love being fit and i don't know why I don't make the extra effort to continue.
I also need to keep crafting and woodworking. Same thing I feel so good. And it shouldn't be a struggle but I don't.
