dreaming at twenty-one

January 30, 2018


I've mentioned this a couple of times already, perhaps one too many, but I don't have any resolutions for the new year. Whatever happens, happens, and I will accept anything new and different into my life. I do, however, have some goals I would like to accomplish. But again, if these don't go the way I've planned them out in my head, I'll gladly accept whatever happens to them. If you're curious to find out what I've planned for this year, please continue reading!

FINISH MY NOVEL (FOR REAL)

I've been working on a fantasy book for nearly two years now and, as I'm busy writing the final chapters, I'm already wishfully thinking about completing this work. Although this is only the first draft, and many frustrating days filled with editing the drafts are yet to come, I'm excited to have a final product of this novel in my hands. It's a long way, but I'm ready for it.

PROVIDE MORE QUALITY POSTS ON THIS BLOG

The feeling of blogging is indescribable, though I'm aware that this may sound odd to some people. But, whenever I write my thoughts onto the little blogger page, publish these writings, and hear what you think of them, it makes my heart flutter. For many years now I have been scribbling down words alongside photos on this blog and quitting is most definitely not in my dictionary!

READ 20 BOOKS 

If a writer wishes to better his writing, he has to read. I want to read more to both improve my English, my writing and my general knowledge. Nothing can make you travel more than books do and I love getting lost in the creative space of a writer's hand. Last year I wasn't in the right space of mind to read often, but this year I'll be making a conscious effort to read more.

PRACTICE MORE RAD SELF-LOVE

I am worthy of love and respect, from both others and myself. It's so easy to lose yourself in daily routines and worries. People struggle with burn-outs, stress and self-hate so often it's truly saddening. If we all spent a little more time on being aware of ourselves and our limits, how much of a better place would the world be?


TRAVEL TO 5 DIFFERENT COUNTRIES

Although I have been living in a different country for nearly six months now, my heart is aching to discover more beautiful places in the world. Ever since I was a little kid my parents took me to the most wonderful places and the wanderlust has never quite disappeared. 

LIVE A MORE ZERO-WASTE LIFESTYLE

Plastic makes me feel rather anxious, and so should you. It either takes centuries to break down or worse, it never does. I'm already making sure I buy and use less plastic, but this year I'd like to make a conscious effort to reduce my waste and reuse whatever I can.

These were my goals for the year and I'm honestly super curious to get to know yours! What's something you'd love to achieve in 2018?
