Hello, my bucket list friends and happy new year! I hope you all had a wonderful start to 2018. The start of a new year is a good time to set goals for yourself. Last year My goal was to get out of my comfort zone. (you can read abut it here) for most of the months of 2017 I set comfort zone busters for myself. I had a fun working on new goals but toward the end of the year I got very busy and I stopped setting the monthly goals, but overall my 2017 new years goal was a success. I did many things to get myself of my comfort zone including talking to new people on dating apps, breaking everyday routine and writing more personal blog posts. I really enjoyed doing the comfort zone busters each month but for this year I have list of things I would like to accomplish and here it is.
My goals for 2018
- Cook more at home instead of eating out
Eating out is fun and the food is good, but it can be expensive and even unhealthy, so this year I’m going to be focusing on cooking my food at home and trying new recipes. I’ve all ready made roasted garlic this year and I’m excited to see what else I’ll make.
- Pay off at least one of my credit cards and get the other balances as small as possible
Like a lot of people, I have a pretty large amount of credit card debt. I know that having all that debt is holding me back and I’m going to be making steps to get rid of as much of my debt as possible.
- Have at least $1000 dollars in my savings account by the end of the year
In addition to having debt I don’t have hardly any money in my savings account I know that is also something that I need to change.
- Pass the MBLEX and start working as a massage therapist
I love doing massage and helping other people, but I need to pass the MBLEX in order to do that. So, one of my goals for this year is to start working as a massage therapist so I can continue to help others .
- Cross 10 more things off my bucket list
I was able to cross 8 things of my list last year and that’s pretty good but since I’m not in school this year I should have more time for list items. I’m excited to see what list items I cross off this year.
- Improve my credit score
As you can tell from looking at this list, personal finance is something I’m really looking to work on this year. While I don’t have a bad credit score it could be better, and I really want to work on that this year.
- Get back in to doing races
I really enjoy doing 5ks and I want to do a 10k It’s been a while since I have done a race and I really would like to back into doing races this year.
I hope all you have a beautiful and successful 2018
