My Personal Goals for The Year! #BeBold2016 Linkup
Welcome to the final week of the #BeBold2016 linkup – a blogging community to make your 2016 brighter! I can’t believe we’re already on the last of our goal-sharing posts for this linkup!
I’ve loved reading everyone’s goals so far and getting to connect with so many different bloggers (and the lovely co-hosts – Kate, Gina, Allie, and Christina) to encourage each other with our bold goals! In case you missed the introductions, Be Bold 2016 is a linkup for bloggers to share their goals for the year and connect with other bloggers. Through this, we can all grow our blogging communities and find cheerleaders and accountability partners to help us own our goals and make 2016 bright and bold!
My Goals So Far
Our last prompt for the linkup is our personal goals for 2016. You all know how big I am on personal development, so I’m sure this list will grow throughout the year. But for now, here are my personal goals for 2016!
My Personal Goals for 2016
1. Make The First Move
I would love to step outside of my comfort zone this year and start taking the initiative. I’m the kind of person who usually waits for other people to talk to me, but I think it’s time to change that! I want to reach out to other bloggers, old friends, new people, and work on my networking skills as well. This definitely ties in with my word of the year (see why I’m embracing possibility in 2016) because opening yourself up to opportunities gives so much room for possibility! If I hadn’t reached out to Gina in December telling her how much I loved her blog, I probably wouldn’t be co-hosting this #BeBold2016 linkup – there is so much good that can come from putting yourself out there!
2. Travel To Europe
I used to travel a lot before I became an adult (yeah, right…I’m still not an adult) with a 9-5 job, but it’s been a struggle to find the time/money/resources to go somewhere again. I really feel the need for some adventure in my life, so I’m making this the year that I visit Germany for sure and hopefully Austria, Amsterdam, and the Czech Republic if I can squeeze them in!
3. Start Coaching Services
In case you missed the announcement, I started grad school in January to get my master’s degree in Health & Wellness Coaching, and I would love to get the ball rolling on coaching! Even though I’m obviously just getting started with this program, I still feel like I can offer services to others and get a feel for what this might look like as a career in the future.
4. Read More
Isn’t this always everyone’s goal? I feel like I majorly slacked with my reading in 2015, so I’ve set myself a goal to read 15 books this year. That may not sound like a huge number, but I know what’s reasonable for me. If you are interested in some books I’ve been reading lately, check out this post about 5 blissful books to read in the bath!
5. Learn More About Photography
I’ve always loved taking photos while traveling or being with people I love to really savor the memories, but I’d also love to learn more about the ins-and-outs of photography and improve the photos I take for my blog and Instagram. Maybe I’ll take a class or just ask my step-dad for help since he’s definitely a photography buff.
