My Goals | 2016

Hello Again!

So it's a New Year, it's 2016! Cue all the 'New Year, New Me' sayings and all those new Gym memberships that will be forgotten in a few weeks. The only reason I'm saying all this is because I've done it before!! Over the past few years I have been the worst at making New Year Resolutions, well I've made them no problem but I've never really stuck to them so this year I'm switching it up a bit. I'm going to set myself Goals!! I just think that way I'll find it more fun trying to challenge myself, does that make sense?! Hmm, I think it does! So here are my Goals for 2016! 

Now I think this is manageable! It may not sound a lot, but there's 52 weeks in a year so (if my math doesn't fail me here, which let's be honest it probably will) that's just under 4 stone! That's a lot - I'd be happy with that! Let's just not do the whole, 'Yay I've lost a pound, let's celebrate by eating everything in sight'.

This may sound like a simple one but I'm the kind of person who stresses out about pretty much everything. 'There's no bread left - it's the end of the world', (yeah I know). So I'm going to try and smile and not stress out as much over things. Plus - you know when someone really pisses you off and they know they have, smiling at them right in the face will piss them off!

This is something I've struggled with for a very long time. Some examples of this is having the house immaculate when people come over to the extent where I'm telling April not to play because it'll make it look untidy! I don't want to be that person, I want her to remember growing up being able to play and make messes! I also want to start wearing what I want to wear and yes, this includes Red Lipstick! I always feel like people are staring at me and judging me for wearing it wen in reality I'm sure other people couldn't care less! Come on Sarah - wear that red lip! 

This will definitely be a challenge for me. I'm one of the most impatient people EVER! I hate that fact about me so let's try and change it!

 I have really enjoyed this blogging stuff and I'm impressed that I have kept it up (I've now been blogging for 5 months). I'm proud of myself for writing about what I want to speak about and I'm glad I've been honest! I'm excited to see what's going to happen this year blog wise!

Sam and I got engaged in 2014 and we haven't planned anything yet. This is just because we are in no rush (plus we need to save - face palm). But this year I'd like to make a start, I can't wait to be Mrs Sarah Donaldson! (That felt rather strange typing that - good strange).

 I am 23 and still do not drive and this really bugs me. When I was 17 I did quite a lot of driving lessons and I was so happy with my progress and I was confident enough to take me test them BOOM, confidence gone! I do wish I stuck with it as it would be so much easier being able to drive especially with having April.

I'm just going to leave this one here. 
(Please whatever powers there are out there please, I'd love this very much)

 I'd love to do this! Either just go along to one or possibly organise one! I actually don't know where I would start but I'm sure it would be fun. I'm in Aberdeen and there's not much of a blogging community here (I don't think so anyway) so I either love to arrange something here or team up with other bloggers elsewhere!! If that sounds lie something you'd be interested in contact me!
You're walking down the street and someone bumps into you, you end up turning around and saying 'Sorry'. I think this is a very British thing, we apologise for everything!

So that's my Goals for 2016, what's yours?

'Till next time ...


  1. I expect to see a red lip at next weekend's blogger meet up!! ;)

  2. Apologies less absolutely cracked me up!! I do this constantly and then get mad at people who don't extend the same British! And just to make your feel better I'm 25 and still don't drive...god it's depressing!
