2017: A Review

2017: A Review

2017 is nearly over and, I know everyone says this every year, but it has gone by so quickly. Quicker than any other.

At the end of last year, I set myself some goals for 2017 - read the full post here. Within today's post, I wanted to refect back on the past year and the goals that I set myself.

These goals included:
1. Make my blog the best it can be 
2. Organise my time better 
3. Keep ticking things off my 30 before I'm 30 list
4. Travel more
5. To complete the Bath Half Marathon 
6. Do things that make me happy

In terms of the blog, I think I have come a really long way in the last year. From working with brands to attending more events, I've really been focussed on putting myself, and this blog, out there this year. I'm pretty pleased with how it's all paid off. Here's to another year of blogging and growth of Kate Morgan Cecilia.

Organising my time is something that I feel that I have nailed this year. Granted, I'm not perfect, but I'm so much better than I was. At the beginning of 2017, I bought myself a cheap diary from Wilko where I write to-do lists for the day in. This has allowed me to be more productive and plan my time more efficiently this year. This is definitely something that I will be taking with me into next year.

The 30 before I'm 30 list has been well underway this year, including getting new piercings, running the Bath Half Marathon, hiking up Pen y Fan and giving blood. The Bath Half was one of the hardest things I have ever done, but I'm so glad that I did it. I'm really excited to keep ticking more things off the list next year.

And finally, doing things to make me happy. I've definitely done that this year. I feel that I've really found what is important to me this year. It's about being with my friends and family, it's about being the third (or thirteenth!) wheel with all of my friends and not caring in the slightest. It's about seeing my friends buying houses, getting married and having children - they are all the things that make me so happy. Whatever 2018 brings, if it's full of my friends and family, I'm sure it will be a happy one. Travel is something that I do really want to work on in 2018 - it's something that I didn't really give any priority to this year. But, it can't all be a success right! In fact, I've already started with my travel goal by booking myself a solo trip to Thailand. I'm so excited!!

Here's to 2018 - to a happy and healthy one for you all and those close to you. Here's to making new memories and more adventures.
See you next year!

Love, Kate xx
