Goals for the remainder of 2021

 New Year's resolutions, and goals are something I love setting at the beginning of the year or to set out 
my 5 year plan, but after that I never think about them. Over the last 15 months, with COVID, I think it's 
put a lot of things into perspective and made everyone, myself included, how short life is. We might be 
nearly 7 months into the year but we can still set goals. There are so many things I want to accomplish in 
so many aspects of my life, so why wait until the next Monday, or the start of a new month or a new year?

I'm starting now.

This is something that I know I will complete because there are only a small amount of things that I 
would like to get, until it's finished. Obviously it will never be 100% complete, because there will always 
be accessories I want to add or things to change around, but that's fine! I'm hoping to achieve this in the 
next month or two and focus on some of my other goals afterwards.

After having a shit start to the year, I'm slowly starting to feel more like myself. Loving yourself doesn't 
happen overnight, and more people need to talk about that. Self love and self confidence takes time and it's 
a process. I'm in a much better place now than I was last week, and better than I was a month ago. This 
time last year I was in a really good place, and the most confident I've ever been and would love to get 
back to that. It's happening slower than I would like, but it 'slow and steady wins the race'.

As I mentioned in a previous post, I am now (for the first time ever, due to mental health) working full 
time. Living on my own meant that I had to push myself and I'm so glad I did. I am proud of my hours, 
work ethic and income and can comfortably afford my flat as well as treating myself and putting away 
savings. As I haven't been at my job long, I haven't built up any savings yet as I've been focusing on other 
things. However as my flat is nearly complete I can save for a rainy day. £1000 might not seem like a lot, 
but when I have an entire flat, bills and food to pay for on my own, I am more than happy with that. 

This is something that I know is going to happen because I have already booked in for some. Within the 
next 2 weeks I will have 3 new additions and by the beginning of September there will be another 5. If 
you know me then you know just how much I love tattoos, since I already have 25. I'm planning on 
making some small additions and adding onto some that I already have and then hopefully by the end of 
2021 I will have finished my thigh piece too! This is definitely a 'smaller goal' in comparison, but 
something that makes me feel good and that I enjoy doing. 

Again, this is another goal that I know will happen because I am already working on it. For so long I have 
wanted to come off my antidepressants but it was just never the right time. I decided to finally bite the 
bullet and am a week into the process already. Last time I came off my medication is wasn't off my choice 
and I was severely ill due to having major withdrawal symptoms. I wanted to do it properly so within the 
next 3 months I should be full off my medication! Which will be the first time in years, and I cannot wait. 

What do you want to achieve in the next 6 months?



  1. I think having goals is so important and these are some big ones! I have faith that you'll be able to smash all of these. I'd like to get my savings pot back up again


    1. I'm pretty confident that I'll be able to do 3 of them, the savings and being happier within myself we'll have to see x
