Hello 2019 you fabulous creature you!! I actually have to write down what made 2018 such an incredible one because I’m still pinching myself that it actually happened…
Highlight of 2018 (& my life, really) was:
🌿 My elated welcome to MOTHERHOOD | My incredibly healthy & glowing pregnancy, birth of my precious little Penelope was a dream come true that I’ve secretly wanted my entire adult life. How the cards have fallen for me in the past has been 100% related to the wrong time in my life (with an equal 2nd place also being with the WRONG partner).
🌿 Adding a new industry/clients to my PORTFOLIO | A consistent goal from when I first started my consulting business as an aspiring 18 year old, fresh out of high school and starting University: to build my digital design and strategic marketing portfolio with clients from diverse industries, locally, nationally and internationally. I do believe ’20 year old Kate’ would be proud *wink*
🌿 Getting out of debt & SAVING | This is a goal of mine that’s fluctuated for nearly 3 years. Why? It started out as business debt (buying inventory, warehousing, investing in marketing, etc) when I first started my online store a few years ago, which then merged into personal debt around my divorce in 2015 and setting myself up in my own home as a singleton for the first time in my adult life (ouch). The messy-merged-debt then dragged on as long as it did from (embarrassingly) believing in a partnership built on a lie – whilst I was taking time out of full-time work to invest in a person, project and ‘family business’, the writing was on the wall and I paid for it – emotionally and financially. Living in fear and denial around debt, however it starts out for you, is crippling. With that part of my life now behind me, I’m elated to be back on track… with MANY lessons learnt.
How many of us make “New Year Resolutions” only to quit the dream & lose hope by February!!?? Me: guilty (I think we all are) 🤦🏼♀️ We all have the ability to chose which way we want to go. How badly do you want it? Visualise your success – do everything you can (prepare, pray, achieve) to MAKE IT HAPPEN. The new book of 365 days is open & waiting to be filled… You got this 🙌🏻☀️
I’m making a pact with my inner self to let go of the unrealistic expectations I set for myself.
I know, hard one. What New Year Resolutions did you make!? LOVE to hear your thoughts, head over to my post here to share!
