The clock struck 12 about 28 hours ago, making 2017 official! Do a little dance with me as we celebrate the end of the most treacherous year. Personally, 2016 wasn’t that bad. I got a decent job that doesn’t drive me crazy, I gained financial independence and stability, and I learned a great deal about myself. Now that brings me to 2017, I have a New Year, no resolutions mentality.
I don’t like to make resolutions, because I believe they set you up for failure. Resolutions are short-lived and I ain’t got time for that, so instead of making resolutions, I set at least one major yearlong REALISTIC goal. This year the goal is to pay off my car. It’s going to take some sacrifice, and maybe even take me getting a second job, but I’m willing to work for it. Of course I set other (mini) goals throughout the year, but this one is a kicker. I’m so over having a car note and I’m setting myself up for my “Before I hit 30” goals.
Now that I’ve gotten my yearlong goal set, let the work begin! What are your New Year’s resolutions or goals?
