Goals for 2019

It’s that time of year again when I start to think about my 2019 goals and if I am honest I did not think I was going to set myself any as I always fear that I won’t achieve them and disappoint myself and you guys.

Yet here I am, putting out my 2019 goals.

Post regularly

I used to post every Wednesday and Saturday and other times when I had a review to write. And I have so many ideas these days and not enough days to post, so I want to post three days a week. Either Mon Wed Fri or Wed Fri Sat. Let me know what you think.

Say Yes More

There have been some opportunities, events and activities that I have all said No to because I have been scared, nervous or worried about doing them. And because of that, it means that I am missing out and feeling upset and annoyed with myself for not saying yes. So I want to do things that scare me and say yes more.

Don’t Give Up

This year I had totally given up hope of getting a career and getting my shiz together. If I am honest I have been feeling really low and rubbish out it, so in 2019 I don’t want to give up. Whatever it is that I meant to do I will find it and do it, I refuse to have another low year. It isn’t great for my mental health.

Pressure Off

I also need to remember that this journey of mine is a hike not a walk in the park so all of these goals including my career one, I need to remember to not put myself under too much pressure. Keep giving myself self-care days and relaxation days and time to reflect.


I want to push myself and now sit back and relax too much, just stay motivated and not sit in the sidelines anymore. I need to stay upbeat, positive and motivated.

That is pretty much it for my 2019 goals- don’t wanna give myself too many. Although I do have personal ones that I am not sure I wanna share with you yet.

What are your 2019 goals?


This will be my last post for 2018.

There have been ups and downs but I have still managed to survive.  I can only hope that 2019 will be a more positive and upbeat year.

In terms of my 2019 posts, I don’t think I will be able to post straight away as I have new year parties and of course my birthday at the start of January. So I am going to take a couple of days off to enjoy the start of 2019.

And once I have done that I will be able to tell you what I 2019 will bring to Gemma’s Journey.
