Almost one year ago I wrote about my difficult year of 2015 and what I would like to accomplish in 2016. Looking back on that post really puts things into perspective and I am glad I made a list of what I would have liked to have achieved.
This is what I wanted to achieve in 2016:
- have experienced something totally new
- travelled somewhere I’ve never been before
- grown my reach and improved my content
- have acquired a new skill
- whole heartedly say “yes, I believe in myself”
Well, 3 out of 5 ain’t bad right?
Experience something new: I did experience something totally new actually! I had a Skype session with a lady who channels a 9th dimension collective of beings who gave me amazing life advice. I mean, that’s pretty damn new!
Travel somewhere new: at the end of that post I expressed that BA had started flying direct to Costa Rica from London and I in fact did book a flight and go to Santa Teresa, Costa Rica for 3 weeks where I had an incredible soul-soothing adventure. I also went to Budapest with my mom for five days and we had an absolute riot there.
Grow reach and improve content: well, I actually didn’t blog all year. I don’t really have an excuse. The light inside of me had died after a dark 2015 and a troubled 2016. That’s why my trip to Santa Teresa was so good for me, it fixed me, breathed life back into me and brought me back to myself.
Aquire a new skill: I’m not sure that I acquired a new skill per say but I have been improving my positive mental attitude and being kinder to myself.
Believe in myself: honestly, this is still a work in progress and thanks to some amazing life coaches I have had the honour of working with, I’m uncovering why I wouldn’t automatically believe in myself and where I am habitually sabotaging myself and really, it’s a big adventure uncovering these parts of me and reframing or deleting them altogether.
What do I want to achieve in 2017?
I don’t think I’d change the list from 2016 to be honest. I always want to experience something new and visit a place I’ve never been. Given that I am back to blogging my goal to improve my reach and content is still there and I am presently working on improving and acquiring new skills to support my business as a creative virtual assistant.
Ultimately by this time next year, I want to be able to look back at 2017 and be happy that I helped others by doing what I love. And was able to pay my bills without stressing in the process!
I hope I get to also go on a road trip with my mom, possibly travel internationally, finally learn to stand up paddle board, horse ride often, maybe meet someone who thinks I’m the bees knees and I quite like him back and make new friends to go on adventures with.
What would you like to experience and accomplish this year?
