I had every intention of doing my usual ‘5 Goals for 2020’ post, I even had a few goals written out ready to go. However, after reading over them, I felt like I was just listing things for the sake of it. I’ve always been a fan of making realistic resolutions but it just doesn’t feel right for 2020. I think this is because its going to be a year of change. I graduate from university in June and although I’m excited to get going with my life, its recently dawned on me that I’m also absolutely terrified.
For the first time in my life, I’m not going to be in education. I never intended on going to university but it ended up just…happening. It seemed like the most natural step for me at the time and I have really enjoyed the experience. However, I’m about to be thrown into the big wide world where I have the choice to pursue whatever career I want (within reason of course). So how on earth am I supposed to set goals when I have this huge change getting closer and closer?!
Although, I’m happy to say I achieved pretty much all of my goals for 2019 and honestly I want to carry them all over to 2020. I know that doesn’t make them goals, as I’ve already achieved them but I’m happy with where I’m at. I guess thats the point, happy enough with where I’m at but also terrified for where life is heading. I think 2020 is going to be the year I go with whatever’s happening, I’m not going to set an agenda and just take it as it comes.
So I guess the point of this post is to say not to put too much pressure on yourself to create goals for the coming year. If you feel overwhelmed then perhaps its best to take it one step at a time. I know some people find goals helpful and they help to guide, but honestly I feel like you’ve just gotta let life take you where you need to go sometimes.
