goals for 2019Once again this year I have decided not to set goals or resolutions, but pick a word, theme or phrase for the year. But again like last year I have chosen two themes for 2019. Around the middle of 2018, I decided to start thinking about what I wanted to accomplish in 2019. I have heard that the best time to set new goals for yourself is your birthday, rather than the start of the year. I think this makes it a bit obvious that my birthday is in the middle of the year.


Health encompasses many things. Physical fitness, mental health and nutrition.
I’ve been really sneaky here and actually started this one a little bit earlier than the new year. I started exercising a little bit more in August. But by exercising more I just mean choosing to exercise. Any exercise I was doing before that was unintentional. I’d like to suggest to my friends that we attend a fitness class for a Squad Night Off. Perhaps water aerobics, yoga or even belly dancing.
I also find it so much easier to eat better and drink more water during the warmer months, so it made sense to ease into it as the weather was warming up.
I hope that by choosing to improve my health this year, that it will also have a flow-on effect on my husband and daughter.


This year I want to work hard and make something of myself. I’d like something financially rewarding to put my energy into.
But again, I cheated. I started looking into this around August. I’ve been listening to the Side Hustle School podcast by Chris Guillebeau since it started in 2017. Although this podcast is so motivational, it took me a long time to come up with an idea that I was confident with and then implement it.

On top of these two words, I have decided to take part in 19 for 2019. It’s a list of 19 things that I want to accomplish in 2019.

Do you have any goals for 2019?
