Happy New Year! 😊😊 I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and enjoyed the last days of 2017 🎉🎉
It is the 1st of January 2018 here in Australia (it may be New Years Eve for you, depending on where you live in the world).
2017 went by so quickly. I managed to achieve most of my goals (which I am very proud of). I am looking forward to working towards new goals this new year and complete those that I did not achieve in 2017.
I thought it would make a great start to 2018 by uploading a goals painting time-lapse video as my first video for this year.
There is lovely meaning behind the colours I have used. I am going to stick this painting up on my wall, in my art room to remind me that time is very important.
My two main goals for 2018 are:
Consistency – I want more than anything to be consistent with my work. Meaning, having more focus on my art, writing, blog and YouTube channel.
It has been difficult finding a balance as I work full-time and also study. I want 2018 to be the year where I find balance and can manage each of these passions.
Don’t get me wrong there were times in 2017 when I did have balance and then other times when it slipped away.
I not only want to be consistent with all my work but also be more involved in the online social community; being supportive, participating in collabs and keeping up with replying to comments.
Positivity – I already have a positive mindset but I do believe there is always room for improvement. I want to become more positive for longer periods of time on a daily basis.
It is a bit finicky because life is not perfect for any of us. There are days where we just do not feel our best. What I want to do when it comes to days like that is to have a personal journal and write a diary entry everyday.
Having this diary will help me write out solutions (writing things out always helps me). I will include positive quotes and note my goals for 2018 in it. That way I can reflect on them everyday which will keep me on track.
I hope you find the video above helpful and inspiring. If you are new to my YouTube channel please subscribe, like and share your thoughts.
I wish you a successful 2018 and that you achieve the steps you need to reach your goals. Keep going for your dreams, you never know how close you are to achieving them. You may just be two steps away. Never give up!
Thank you so much for reading and watching. Have a beautiful day and amazing start to 2018!
