I thought it’d only make sense for my first post of the new year to be based on my goals for the new year.
2017 was a year full of change, I started and finished CBT, started antidepressants which have changed my life. I made so many friends within the MH blogger community which I feel like will be my friends for all my life.
2018 is the year I am going to thrive in every single way possible. My aim is to make 2018 the best year I’ve ever had. I will keep learning how to manage my mental health better and put me first.
So, as the title says.. here are my goals for 2018.
1) GO TO LONDON! It was a goal from therapy to go to London last year but couldn’t go last year, so I am 100% going next year to explore and meet with a few blogging friends who I have been dying to meet since talking to them on twitter!
2) SELF CARE! I know I blab on about self care and how important it is, but truthfully since getting my new job I haven’t done much self care, which has affected me a lot, especially my moods. I am dedicating at least four days a week to do a hour or more of self care each day!
3) BLOGGING! I haven’t blogged in months, I truly let my old blog go down the train, down to the reason of having absolute no time to think about it, I have been working so much overtime the past few months I’ve not even had time to tweet as much as usual! (which is very surprising, I tweet LOADS!)
4) CAMPAIGNING! I have always wanted to do this but haven’t had the confidence up until now. I love the work people in this community do with campaigning, like Jodie and Andrea (they are both AMAZING!) I would love to do the same work as they do, as you guys probably know I am a media volunteer for Time To Change so this will obviously help me with campaigning. With struggling with my mental health for a long time, it’s made me more passionate to de-stigmatize mental health as I truly know how it feels to be stigmatized.. it took me years to seek help, and I don’t want that to happen to others.
I am feeling confident that I will complete at least half of these goals!
I hope you all had a great Christmas and new years and I hope you all have a fab 2018!
Lets make 2018, our year.
