This is the third year that I’ve ditched New Year resolutions in favour of a year-long list of fun goals. In 2018 it was ’18 for 2018′, last year was ’19 for 2019′ and this year — you’ve guessed it — ’20 for 2020′.
This is the first year I’m publishing my goals. Mainly for accountability, but also because I want to share with you how I’ve fared by the end of the year. In previous years I’ve never achieved everything on the list. And I’m absolutely ok with that. The point of the list for me is not a stick to beat myself with. It’s a way of reminding myself of the fun and exciting ideas I’d like to try, should the mood take me during the year to get on them.
Without further ado – here’s my 20 for 2020:
- Friday date nights with my hubby.
Mostly at home as we rarely have babysitters, but a nice steak and movie is better than nothing!
- Launch my online shop – coming soon!
- Complete Season 2 of the podcast
- Get moles checked
- Take part in 30 days of yoga.
I’m not holding myself to doing it every day, but just trying my best.
- Attend a Nurture & Thrive meetup
- Make a will.
This has been on the list for the last two years. I must do it this time!
- Read at least 12 books
- Play squash at least once a month
- Crochet a blanket for our bed
- Learn to play one full piano piece
- Visit one new National Trust property
- Spend 15 minutes a week creating a ‘Facts of Life’ book.
This isn’t quite what it sounds! It contains all the essential information needed by your family in case something happens to you. Not fun to think about, but potentially saving your family a lot of additional paperwork at a distressing time.
- Print two photo year books
- Organise a capsule wardrobe for Spring/Summer and Autumn/Winter
- Create a base makeup look that can be completed in 5 minutes
- Buy a bracelet with my word of the year – Trust
- Create a House book for home projects and tasks
- Use only refillable or solid soap for the whole year
- Buy a pretty ceramic soap dish
And there you have it. I’ll check in a couple of times during the year to let you know how I’m getting on. If you’re setting your own 20 for 2020, good luck and let me know over on Instagram how you get on!
