HELLO 2019! My New Years Resolutions!

Hey Everyone!

I hope that the start of your new year has been amazing! Other then Christmas break ending my new year has been pretty great so far!

All week I have been getting emails with posts that titles are variations of my title for this post, so I thought that once again I might as well join them. I have never been successful at fulfilling any of my New Years resolutions in past years (I’m sure I am not the only one), but then again I’ve never really tried very hard. My hope is that if I try I will be able to complete most if not all of these resolutions!

Complete My Goodreads Reading Challenge

Last year I set the pretty unrealistic goal of reading 400 books. Unsurprising I ended up not being able to complete my challenge, falling 123 books short.

I am kind of proud of my self, that I read at least 277 books in 2018. That is pretty good right!? If only I hadn’t set my 2018 challenge as 400 books. *sighs*

Anyway, I am pretty confident that I can read 300 books this year! I’m excited to see what books I end up reading in 2019!

Write In My Journal Almost Daily

During the last six months or so of 2018 I hardly ever wrote in my journal. I really missed it but I just couldn’t (or didn’t make time for it).

A couple days ago I started a new journal for 2019. I am hoping to finish it this year, filling it only with writing, not turning it into a scrapbook like I did with 2018’s journal.

Be Able To Do A Split

This has been on every list of goals and resolutions I have made for the past couple years, but this is the first year that I am actually stretching every day. So hopefully 2019 will be the year I am finally able to say that I can do a split!

Become A Better Photographer

I intend to read a bunch of blog posts about photography, ask my friends and family for suggestions and tips and find some good photography books to read.

Even if none of this helps I will just keep learning by taking pictures. I think practice is one of the best ways to learn anyway. πŸ˜€

Stick To My Blogging Schedule

Right now I am posting on Monday or Tuesday and Friday. It’s working well for me and I plan to stick with it.

Become A Better Blogger

I am really excited to learn more about blogging and improve my blogging this year!!

Spend More Time Writing and Putting Together My Posts

I always feel like I just end of throwing my post together. My plan is to spend more time and thought on each post.

Reach 100 Followers

I love knowing other people are reading and enjoying (hopefully) my blog, I am looking forward to my audience growing!

Thank you to all my wonderful followers and commenters!

What are some of your New Years Resolutions??? Which of mine is your favorite?

Happy New Year!Β

  1. Great post! One of my resolutions is to write a story and I’ll try my best! I also really wanna start a blog but have, like, no time unfortunately. I love your resolution on reading a certain number of book, that’s a great idea! If I have the chance I’ll try to set a goal like that too. Have a nice day!

  2. My resolution has been the splits for about six years, and I have consistently failed to fulfill it. But this year I’m actually stretching too and I think I’ll finally achieve it!!


  3. I love these goals, Esmeralda! πŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸ’“ I’ve also set a reading goal on Goodreads for this year (25, actually, considering I only read like 3 in 2018 πŸ˜‚πŸ‘ŽπŸΌ). I set a number lower than I think I’ll actually read so I’ll feel more accomplished!
    Best of luck on working toward doing a split!! That’s exciting πŸ˜πŸ’œ

  4. Love your goals, Esmeralda! Yes! 277 is a amazing number of books even if you didn’t meet your goal. One of my goals this year is to try really really hard to spend more time with God in the morning. I feel like lately I haven’t had as much time as I would like to spend with him. But again, that’s my fault cause my schedule is crazy busy:( Another goal of mine is to be able to do a left handed layup by March! I love basketball but I am SO bad at the left handed layup.
