New Year Bucket List

I don’t set New Years resolutions anymore, I just cant stick to something for a whole year -maybe thats why only 8% of people actually stick to them!

The new year, as cliche as it may sound IS such a great time to reflect and prioritise what you want from your life!! I’m so excited to begin 2018!!

Instead this year I am making a years Bucket List.  Smaller goals that i can tick off (love the ticking off part!!) throughout the year, but can also be up-dated/changed because priorities can change!! I have a work column, to do and to have column.

I have alot of work goals!! I want to up my freelance work as a VA and grow my business, so this column will be pretty full for me!! This year I’m determined to rock it!!!

The to do column is more fun-adventures I want to have and other things I want to do! Yes it will include the boring old ‘get healthy’ but also finally learning to play my ukulele and a family trip to Rotorua.

As for the to have.. disclaimer I Love Stuff!!! So I have to add it to my bucket list so I can make shit happen!!! New couch here I come.

I always say lets make this the best year so far! That way each year can keep getting better and better. 

2018 is my year!!! And it can be your year too xx

Friendship 

Making friends when your an adult is alot like dating.  You eye up the ladies in the room, decide who you think could be an awesome fit and attempt small talk. If this seems to go well you swap numbers and organize meeting for a drink.

It’s scary-and not as easy as you think! And if your new to a small town alot of the ladies have been friends forever and have there clicks sorted.

I have a million acquaintances, some great friends online and I’m lucky enough to have an amazing family and husband -but I dont have many really close girlfriends like the ones I see on T.V.  I watch those shows and feel like I’m really missing out on something everyone should have!

I see alot of women reaching out online looking for friends so it must be more common than I thought. Motherhood can be really isolating, I had my babies quite young and lost most of my friends in the prosess-and being a stay at home Mum means you lose the friends you’d make in the workplace.

Maybe they should make an App like Tinder- but for Mums looking for new friends! (They probably have-if you know what it’s called let my know!!)

So with the New Year approaching I’m really going to try and form closer friendships.  So reach out ladies!! With social media we never have to feel alone-and I’d love to connect with some like minded bitches xx
