So now that the holiday season is over and the new year has begun, it’s finally time to set our yearly goals. I have never been a big fan of resolutions, but have always done them, because it just helps me getting things done. I like to be organised, and those are kind of a yearly to-do list for me. I don’t like to fail, so I don’t set high expectations for myself. I try to be realistic and gentle. That way, if I do better than what I expected, I’ll be so much more satisfied and happy than if I just didn’t even reach the expectation.
I’m excited for them to be out there for everyone to see, it will definitely push me to get through them. So let’s jump into it!
The first one is the most important, for sure. I do want to get pregnant again this year, and have a baby by 2019 if everything goes as planned. I do not want to feel guilty about smoking while being pregnant, so I need to quit. I need this addiction out of my life for good, and I know my fiancé and family would be so incredibly proud of me. My baby would be safer in the womb, and my general health would also benefit from it. So that’s it, it’s out there now, there’s no going back. I’m gonna quit smoking in 2018.
To carry on the healthy side of my life, I want to exercise more. I walk and move around a lot with my job, but I would like to dedicate my time to some cardio. I’d say 3 times a week to start with is definitely doable. Honestly, I just need to find the motivation to either stand up in the morning or not sit on the sofa as soon as I put my son into bed. It’s hard, it’ll take me a lot of courage at first, but it’s one of my goals and I’m determined to achieve it!
I’m not somebody that shows my feelings that much, but I’d like to learn to do it more, especially with my family and friends. I’m so grateful to have every single one of them in my life, I feel like I need to show it more to them, because they’re all amazing. Where I live, many of my friends don’t have family, we all live away and far from home. We are each other’s family, not by blood, but it feels just the same. They deserve it, and I want to tell them ho much I am thankful and lucky to have them.
My next goal is to be more organised. I love to make lists, check things off of them, but I still can’t manage to have an organised life. I need to plan cleaning days, wash days, errands days and so on. By the end of next year, I don’t want to feel like my life is a constant checklist. I want to feel like I have those things under control to live a happier family life. And I want to minimise the stress those tasks bring me when I don’t organise them the right way.
Finally, I want to blog seriously. I love writing, it calms me down. I love makeup and talking about it makes me happy. So I really want to take this seriously, respect a schedule, engage with my readers and create a little group that’s genuinely interested in what I talk about. I also want to take pictures I’m proud of. Basically, I want put my heart and soul into Totally Camille to make it grow significantly by the end of 2018.
And that’s it! Those are my new year’s resolutions. I love every single one of them, and I can’t wait to smash them throughout the year, and update everyone through my social media, so please go and follow me on there, especially on Instagram – @totallycamille which is where I share more.
What about your own resolutions? Let me know what they are, I’m genuinely interested, let’s talk in the comments section.
Have a wonderful day,
