New Year Resolutions 2013

It's that time of year again where we make new resolutions for the year ahead only for them to be broken by 31st January. Sometimes they last a bit longer but generally by the end of the year they are forgotten. Now with my blog though I can write them down for all to see. Then at the end of the year look back and see if I actually achieved them.

2012 was a great year in many ways. I went on my first upside down coaster :D yes to many I know this is lame but to me it was a huge achievement and made me realise I can overcome my fears. I left a job which I hated! Stacking shelves at Sainsburys for nearly 8 years and on nights was draining me of my personality. I had to leave and get myself back. It was hard going not having any money for awhile but I found work again, albeit part-time, and money is slowly coming back. It'll be awhile before I pay off my debts I feel.

I aim to make 2013 a happier and more fruitful year. I've had enough of not having money to do simple things like pay bills, go on mini-breaks or even just meals out.

Things I loved 2012 for ....

1. Fifty Shades of Grey
2. Celebrating my boyfriends 30th
3. Becoming an Advanced Sales Leader with Avon (I'll do it again when I re-start)
4. Buying our first pet .. our cat Tifa
5. Starting my blog
6. Starting a new job at the Holiday Inn
7. Making MANY new friends ... online and locally
8. Seeing Shinedown twice on one tour
9. Bonding with Stuart

My 2013 New Year Resolutions
1. Be more active - like walking, wii fit, cleaning ... anything besides sitting and typing
2. Set small achievable goals - each month as when goals are broken down into bitesize chunks they are easier to achieve
3. Pay off credit card - this may come later
4. Blog regularly - at least 2-3 times a week, AT LEAST!
5. Be a better friend/girlfriend - not that I'm a horrible one now but I do spend too much time in my own world & need to pay attention to others around me
6. Go Abroad - somewhere hot! It's been over 10 years since I went abroad
7. Become a qualified Make Up Artist - with Jackie Hamilton School of Beauty
8. Decide what to do with new qualification - may learn some other skills on top like threading, eyelash extensions and waxing
9. Re-start my Avon career - for those of you that follow me you know I left Avon in December as I had too much going on and was no longer being motivated by my mentor. I am waiting until May/June when I can go back under a NEW mentor and re-start my business
If you have blogged your resolutions I would love to give them a read. Just leave your name and web address below via the linky which will be open throughout January.
