I’ve been staring at this post for a while now, trying to figure out how to make it a little prettier, but really, the past year was rough. I’ll admit, I’m really disappointed in myself which, probably, isn’t a great way to start the hew year.
I mean, I had some wonderful experiences with old friends, met some amazing new friends, and I’m still here and relatively healthy, and so are my family and friends. Those are obviously the most important things. So, I’m trying very hard not to beat myself up for not accomplishing the things I wanted to accomplish.
I’ve noticed that I have a tendency to put other people’s work before my own. Sometimes, that’s necessary because of agreed upon deadlines, but that’s not always the case.
So, this year, I’m going to work on valuing my own work as much as I do the work of others. In addition, I’ll be taking time to decompress. I don’t want to burn out. I’ve done it before, and right now, I feel dangerously close to it, again.
I realize these goals aren’t particularly tangible or quantifiable, like the goals I usually make. But, right now, I think that’s for the best.
What are your goals for the upcoming year? Also, be sure to check out the other bloggers’ goals for 2019.

I think those are great goals! Sound to me like you’re joining the Year of Self Care!!! 🙂 I think we all need it.
Uh- decompressing is a tangible goal, and so is taking more time for your work. Those are great goals. Just assign some number values to them. Like 2 days a week go to your stuff or something better.
Very commendable goals! Absolutely nothing wrong with a bit of ambiguity. My one stated goal for the new year – to survive another year. It’s going to be a good year!
I look forward to seeing what you do with this year and know I’m here to support you in any way I can! One of my goals for 2019 is to read/listen to some of my TBR – books I already own, rather than taking on new review titles (unless it’s from a favorite author – hint hint!) Happy New Year, my friend! xoxo
P.S. Look at the URL for this post. 😉
Happy New Year, honey! I adore you! <3
Valuing your own work is huge! And yes, some of us are already seeing that you’re still riding that edge too hard… justifying working yourself way too much. Self care…
And you did lots… it’s just easy not to see that when it’s not the stuff you’d planned on. Doesn’t negate all you did, though. You’re amazing.
You are wonderful 💗 Don’t be disappointed in yourself, love.
