My Goals for 2015

Happy New Year! Hope you had a lovely and fun night welcoming in 2015. Did you make any resolutions?

A lot of people don't bother with resolutions - or at least I know a lot of people who don't - because they know that they won't do them. I use to make resolutions and that was indeed the case. This year I have made myself goals, which I know kinda seems the same as a resolution, but if it is a goal I know I will work toward it.

Lose a stone and a half - I know, tons of people say they are going to lose weight when the New Year hits. Well, firstly my focus is on getting rid of this weight I gained over Christmas. I ate a lot. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed everything lol but now I want to get back on a healthy eating kick. My aim is to be a stone and a half lighter by the end of November 2015. I have 11 months. It's possible.

Finish writing, and publish Blood Book Two - I mentioned this in my last post of 2014. So, you already know this is my main aim for this year.

Start writing Blood Book 1.5 - if somehow I am able to complete this novella and have the time to put it through edits etc and release it, I will.

Read more - Self explanatory, but I am waaaay behind with my reading. My TBR pile is huge.

Join an amateur dramatics group - I have already set this plan in to motion by enquiring with the local theatre groups. Why do I want to get involved with a drama group? I originally wanted to be an actress - something that I decided when I was five years old - I had this want until about 5 years ago. I wasn't confident enough in my talent or appearance to actually follow this dream of mine. So, I didn't. At the time I was writing like crazy, so my attention turned to the written word, which I don't regret. I love writing, but any time I watch a good programme, film, or even a live show I will find myself thinking, "I bet it's amazing to be a part of such a programme/film/show." So, I've decided to go back in to drama and see how I feel about it. Wish me luck. It's been a while since I performed.

So, they are my goals for 2015. All achievable.

What about you? Do you have goals/resolutions for the year? Do you feel they are achievable goals?


  1. Losing a stone in the states is passing a kidney stone, so I definitely don't want that on my bucket list! But losing weight in 2015 and definitely writing and more writing are super important goals. The top priority is working through pesky issues with grace and integrity.

    I've enjoyed your blog for the few months I've been following. Happy new year to all at a Stiff Upper Lip!

    1. Well, I do have a year to lose a stone and a half. So, a couple of pounds each month, I think I can do that. The trick is maintaining it lol

      Yes, grace and integrity... and under the breath cursing lol

      I'm glad you're enjoying the blog. It's nice to know that my madness makes sense sometimes lol

      Hope you have a fab 2015, Carole.
