Realistic Plans For 2020

Hey lovelies, I can't believe the year has flown but so quickly and that 2020 is on our doorstep. I'm in a position where I will have to work so much more for the festive season and because of this I probably won't be able to blog as much as I'd like. I've had time to reflect on 2019 and I've decided that in 2020 I just want to do things that make me happy.

Bin off people that are disappointing

Sorry but this is the first thing I'm doing in 2020, y'all shitty people are being left in 2019. This year has taught me some really valuable lessons about other people and myself, I always try to put myself in other peoples shoes when I make a decision on why their actions are shitty, I try my best to see the best even when sometimes there isn't one. I don't have the effort to continuously be there for people who wouldn't even bother to ask me if I was okay on the worst day of my life. 

There becomes a line between being caring and being an absolute mug, I find myself being the latter all the time.

Do More Things For Myself

Following on from the first point I just want to be happy, and have healthy relationships, and do things for myself when I need too. I think with relationships there is a pressure that allows you to become unknowingly so reliant on others for validation or care. I'm trying to step away from acting that way when I can.

I picture myself sitting somewhere gorgeous in Italy one day, drinking all the coffee, reading some beautiful horror and knowing that I got there all on my own. I really hope that I can be more independent in some ways. I live on my own, and I do lots of things on my own but that attachment level is just too easy.

Start Saving Money

Honestly I'm almost 24 and I'm absolutely want with money, and really there is just no excuse for it right now. I work a decent job, yes I live on my own which is more expensive but there is always other ways I can save money. Whether it be a reduction in online shopping, nasty gal I'm looking at you, a change in where I purchase food or how many meals I eat out. There's definitely room for better budgeting. 

I want to be able too finish 2020 with a fair amount of savings, especially since I've spent most of 2019 paying off debts, and if I'm honest I never want to be in that position ever again. I want to have a beautiful little fund for a rainy day.

Be More Creative

Honestly I spend half of my life creating artworks and screen printing, I really want to make this the real deal for me. My job why great, is not a creative one, I have a masters and I'm working on my PhD in Fine Art I want to do more arty bits.

I think about opening a print store as a side hustle, but even then I'm not sure if I physically have the time to send things etc. I've been doing a lot more blogging this year too, which has helped income wise but it does take up a large section of my free time. So I'm not sure whether I can manage that, work, family, writing, PhD and a potential relationship.

I'd love to know what you all want to achieve in 2020 and if you have any goals already!
