Goals for 2017

I know I am so late on the bandwagon on this post, nothing like making resolutions in the the middle of January! I usually never make resolutions just out of fear of not being able to keep them, but this year I decided to challenge myself, make a few, and post them online where people can read them eek!! What I've done in the past was made a few loose goals in my head of things I wanted to aim at, but I end up brushing them off and forgetting about them so maybe writing them down will help... We'll see...

1. Graduate.
This may be quite an obvious one, and an unavoidable one as I am on a one way street to graduation. I decided to add this first off, because I mean graduating isn't a bad goal and secondly because it is nice to have some goals that you know are achievable on your list.

2. Just say yes.
Fun fact: I am really bad at saying yes to things and challenging myself. I am good at staying in my comfort zone and I always worry about what will happen, but I want to challenge myself to say yes to more things this year for a number of reasons. First off, you never really grow as a person unless your challenge yourself and also you do not know if you will like something unless you try it. You know that saying, "Life begins outside of your comfort zone," I feel like it's true and I just want to try to challenge myself this year.

3. Figure out what I want to do with my life.
So here is my problem in life I am hard working and I do have drive and dedication but I am lacking in direction. I know if I had goals and aspirations and I would love to work towards them. But I just don't know what I want to do or what I want to do with my life and I would really like to have some sense of direction. About all I know is I do not really want a traditional desk job.... so yeh...

4. Be more creative.
I feel like creativity takes practice, just like anything else in life. No matter if you were born to be a "creative", I feel like practice is necessary. I feel like in order to be more creative you need to be actively practicing it and engaging in creative thinking. Things that "non-creatives" (which I hate that phrase because I believe anyone can be creative if they decide that they want to) do not understand is that brilliant ideas do not come with the drop of the thumb, it often takes a lot of trial and error to reach that brilliant conclusion. So, I just want to try to immerse myself in more creative things just to kind of grow that area of my brain. Hope this makes sense... hah.

Have you made any resolutions this year?
Thanks for reading!!
xox,
Amanda
