New year , New Goals

So with us all settling into 2023 , I wonder if many people set goals now , if so , what goal/goals have you set yourself to achieve ?

Mine is to try and not stress about things as much as I have previously.

I know easier said than done right! :joy::joy:

Hi Aaron, Happy New Year to you.
Mine is to stop procrastinating, get my teeth sorted, and write a will (im getting on and i have no family so want to leave to animal welfare charities, protection and conservation). I would be posthumously miffed if the Govt got it! Now i have written these down perhaps i will get round to it, and not keep putting things off, plus other big stuff I need to tackle and have avoided.

Maybe a holiday too, its been a long time! Oh and some little things like trying to get to like green tea and herb teas - why do some things that are good for you taste yukky?! I’m trying to drink green tea now and you would laugh at my facial contortions! It’s worse than that Valerian spray! I love coffee but do try to avoid caffeine after 4pm.

I hope you manage to reduce your stress levels :sleeping:

I want to be braver and to have more fun and I have decided to book to go on a holiday on my own. It is a scary thought so would start with a mini-break maybe 3 nights. Has anyone got positive feedback on doing this? I need a push to get something booked. Question - UK or abroad?

Maybe a mini break in the UK to start with to see how you feel about it and try to slowly move towards the idea of abroad?

I have a goal of doing all the little jobs that have hanging round for a while. Tidy cupboards, organise wardrobes, use up all the bits of jars of chutney etc in the fridge and shampoo, creams etc in the bathroom. Not buying new until all the long forgotten stuff has been used or thrown out. Another goal is attempt one goal at a time and congratulate myself each time I achieve it.

Probably makes sense.

That’s a great goal, I would hate to organise my wardrobe though :joy:

I want to become a better listener … I love listening but when it comes to things I’m passionate about I become a less than enthusiastic listener … :slightly_smiling_face: …. There are loads of milestones and missions I have for our sofi but this isn’t the chat for that I don’t think! :pray:

I second the “being braver” part! My goal this year is to step out of my comfort zone in a few different ways (starting with relocating, getting my UK driver’s license I’ve been putting off due to fear of having forgotten everything, and starting a veggie plot) - and to make some new friends while I’m at it :crossed_fingers:t2::sparkles:

Those sound fantastic objectives. I wish you success and hope that you achieve them this year. We are both stepping out of our comfort zone and that can only be a good thing.

Good luck.
