Blogging and Life Goals for 2016

I know I’m a tad bit late but happy new year guys! I hope you all had a lovely NYE. I thought I’d kick off the new year with a more personal posts so here are my blogging and life goals for the year of 2016.

But first let me take you a bit back in time. Since the last half of 2014 turned into quite the nightmare for me I didn’t set any resolutions or goals for 2015. All I wanted for 2015 was to get back to my old self and find happiness again and I think I came pretty close to that. Though I’m not entirely the same person I used to be I can finally recognize myself again. But honestly I think when you experience something traumatic it is going to change you and you can never go back to that exact person you once were because you cannot just forget what happened. I’m sure we’d all like to forget certain moments, experiences or even people but that’s just not how life works. In order to move on you have to deal with it.

While it took most 0f 2015 to get over 2014 I eventually managed to cope with everything that happened and now I’m finally at a much much happier and better place. I have my motivation back, which is why I’m determined to make 2016 my year!

  1. First off I want to get back in shape. After not being allowed to exercise and work out for so long I really want to push myself to hit up the gym regularly again and get back to a healthier me.

2. When I first started University I was so determined to do much better than I did in high school and get really good grades because I finally got to study something  I was really interested in. However, having to start my second year late because of health reasons I stopped caring about school for a while. I’m still not even sure how I made it through my second year sometimes. I guess I just forced myself to function but I didn’t actively put any effort into anything. Since I now finally have my old motivation back I really want to work harder for those good grades

3. I hope that just like last summer I get to travel again! Traveling has always been a huge passion of mine because I love to explore other countries and cultures, so I hope that I get to do a bit more of that in 2016.

4. One of my main goals this year is to focus more on my blog again! I’ve really been slacking with blogging lately. I used to enjoy blogging so much and I still do but life has been getting in the way so much lately. Additionally I just couldn’t motivate myself to write. I’m not really sure why because I used to want to write and post all the time. But I really hope I can go back to posting new and interesting content for you consistently again!

5. In 2015 I got the chance to work with quite a few  great brands, which was incredible. Honestly, when I first started blogging I never ever in a million years thought that any brand would ever contact me to work with them. So I’m quite proud of myself that that I’ve gotten some great opportunities through my blog in 2015. For 2016 I’d love to work with more  amazing brands and maybe some more great opportunities will come my way.

6. In case you guys didn’t know I’m a huge Instagram addict! I spend so much time on Instagram it’s probably not good. But it’s definitely my main source for makeup, nail and outfit inspiration. And obviously I also love posting on there myself. I’m currently so close to 6000 followers, which is so little compared to some but a lot to me. For 2016 I hope to improve my Instagram as well as my blog and hope to gain some more followers on the way. 10K would be like my ultimate goal for 2016.That seems like so many people to me but I’m already more than halfway there so who knows? Maybe I can get there.

So these are my personal goals for 2016. Basically I’m just really motivated to hopefully improve many aspects of my life, which will hopefully lead to a more confident and happier me. I guess happiness is my absolute main goal of the year because being truly happy isn’t as easy as some people make it out to be.

Did you set any goals for 2016? What are they?

Thanks so much for reading!

Lots of love,

Sophie

  1. I love them all! I’m pretty much going through what you were.. trying to find myself again after a truly terrible year. And the thing that keeps me from giving up on myself is the fact that we are all constantly changing. Just because I don’t feel exactly (or close to…) the same way I did two years ago, doesn’t mean how I feel now isn’t the “real” me. (Though I’d much prefer going back to how I felt before!) If I’m happy, then that’s the goal.

    I love reading your blog, and these pictures are AMAZING!

    1. Hi Anna! Thanks so much for reading and sharing your view on this. And I totally agree ultimately happiness is all that matters.

      Thank you that genuinely means a lot to me! All the best for the new year.

  2. Hi Sophie! Thanks for sharing this post, very personal but inspiring, thanks for that! :) My situation has been a bit similar as well, had some issues messing with my normal life, but now it all starts to look better again, and most importantly I feel better and like my “old” self again.

    1. Thank you for reading and for taking the time to comment! I’m glad you can relate and are starting to feel better! Hope this year turns out to be a great one for you!
