Overall, January has been a pretty good month for me. I mean, the last couple of days have been stressful (house problems!) but up until then it was great.

My word for this year is “happiness” and I can honestly say with confidence that I have felt the happiest I have felt in a very long time.

I’ve spent a lot of time looking after myself and focusing on how I can incorporate more positivity into my life. I’ve been working on projects that make me excited and that genuinely inspire me, and I’ve been bringing ideas to life that have been floating around in my head for years.

I barely published any Weekend Blog posts in 2017 (or just blog posts, for that matter!), but I’ve really missed writing them and I’d like to bring the series back for 2018.

For those of you who don’t know, The Weekend Blog is a series of posts, published either on a Saturday or Sunday (it was previously called The Sunday Blog), where I write about what has happened in my week. Admittedly, I don’t have the most exciting life ever, but I love to write and share these post for myself more than anything, and if you enjoy reading them too then that’s an added bonus!

Back in October, I started to think about what I wanted my goals for 2018 to be. Yes, I started thinking about this very early, but 2017 was a pretty terrible year for me and I couldn’t wait for it to end!

Last year, instead of setting myself multiple goals, I just chose one. My goal was to buy a house, and I did accomplished it. In previous years I had set myself multiple goals, but I always failed at achieving all the goals I set and it just made me feel really bad about myself.
