2019 is here and the internet is swamped with #NewYearNewMe styled posts. So what harm is one more?
Going into a New Year can sometimes be daunting. Everyone has so much hope and expectations that I sometimes find a lot of pressure comes as the clock turns to midnight, I find, the best way to stay focused is to not make resolutions but to set goals and make a list of things you would like to get done by this time next year, With that in mind, here is the list of goals I would like to achieve in 2019.
1. Visit 3 new Countries
Until I have travelled the world, this will always be a goal for me. I currently have my first holiday of the year booked. VEGAS!! I have never been so I am really looking forward to this. 🙂
2. Do Something Good for Charity
I have been growing my hair for around three years now with the intention of donating it to the Rapunzel Foundation. I am making the cut early in the New Year (3rd of Jan) and also fundraising for the charity too. If you would like to start your year off with a good deed, you can donate here.
3. Complete a Tough Mudder
I have been working for Tough Mudder Ireland now for four years and have yet to complete a Tough Mudder course. Obviously, I’ve tried (and failed) many of the obstacles but I’ve never run a full course. Mainly because I work at the Irish event so if I were to do a Tough Mudder I would have to go to the UK. But I hope to do that this year and by signing up for a Tough Mudder, I’m hoping this will motivate me to stick to the gym classes.
4. Take part in the Disney Half Marathon
A few years ago I took part in the Dingle Half Marathon and I swore I would never do it again. But how could I say no to the Disney one? Also, this might motivate me to complete the couch to 5k training app that I have restarted 4 times now.
5. Finish the 3 books I started in 2018
Last year I started to read:
- It Takes a Tribe by Will Dean
- Lean In by Sheryl Sandberg
- A Complete Aisling by Emer McLysaght and Sarah Breen
I think it’s about time I finished at least one of them.
6. Make Tiarnagh Cookies
While writing this I left my laptop down to put more turf in the fire and Tiarnagh (My youngest sister) added this in… I better go preheat the oven…
As the year goes on, I will keep referring back to this list to make sure I’m staying on track. I’ll let you know every time I complete part of the list too.
Have a great year everyone!
