2013 New Year's Resolutions

I make them every year but rarely ever stick to them.

Let's take a look back at my resolutions from last year and see how many were kept...

1. Health and Happiness

I vowed to become healthier and happier in 2013 both physically and mentally. I lost nearly 2 stone and have made huge progress in my recovery from my anxiety disorder.

2. Get A Life!

I wanted to get out of the house and socialise at least once a month. We haven't been particularly good at this one simply because we haven't had the money but we have been going our and doing things (even if it's just going into town for lunch) considerably more this year.

3 . A For Effort

This one was business related. I wanted to put more effort into my business and set myself targets that included.
- Get online shop up and running.
- Build brand.
- Blog more.
- Attend one event as a business.
- Gain a stockist.

We'll I've done all of these things and more, including winning 3 small business competitions. I think we can safely say that this one gets a big fat tick next to it.

4. My Dream Home

I aimed to save at least 50% of the deposit needed to buy our own home.
This one was a big fat fail as money circumstances have not allowed us to save a single penny. Oh well, maybe next year?

5. Be True To Yourself

This one was about embracing myself and making more of an effort to show my personality.

I have definitely made more of an effort to show my rockabilly edge with the way that I dress and it's something that I plan on continuing to do.

All in all I think I did pretty well at completing some of my resolutions from last year and I'm pleased to say that I continued to work on them all throughout 2013, not just the first two weeks of January.

What were your resolutions for last year? Did you stick to them and will you be making new ones this year?
