resolutions….kind of

So we are well and truly into 2012, i can’t believe i am actually going to be 24, yes 24…this slightly terrifies me when i think about all the things i am yet to accomplish. But at the same time the ability to actually do these things makes my fear of growing older subside.

I am kind of at a point were I have so many things i want to do that I am not entirely sure if I can do them all. I never ever really set my self resolutions because i know full well i wont do them. So i think i am casually going to step into this new year with my heart set on a few things and genuinely work towards those And anyway my sister keeps reminding  its the end of the world in December (very morbid i don’t actually believe it is) but i look at it this way if it is true i want to cram everything into the net 12 months, and if it isn’t then i will have done all those things.

Here is what i want to achieve this year :

Enroll on a silver smiting course

Go traveling for a while in the summer.

Work harder than what i have been (simple statement but i need to)

wear more rings

Set a shop up (be it a traveling one or a bricks and mortar shop something small)

Learn to calm my anxieties down, take things one step at a time and approach things with a smile on my face with a little more positivity.

Be more organized in business and life.

Listen to more music.

I was going to put up there be healthier but i want that to be a gradual thing, that I will try and not force. Oh and Lisa has reminded me that i need to drink more green tea! from my green camper van mug my brother got my for christmas, i ask him as a joke to buy me a camper van for christmas and he said it was all he could afford he is the sweetest thing.

Do you have any hopes for 2012?

    Your list of goals look really interesting! I hope you achieve them 🙂 I particularly like the sound of the shop and moving to Cornwall – both dreams of mine! xxx

    Great goals Ella, it's scarey getting older eh, these days the years seem to whizz by a lot quicker. I have a few things I've always said I want to do by the time I'm 30 but I will be 26 in March so time is running out!

    By the sounds of it 2012 is going to be a make or break kinda year for a lot of us!
