2017 – What Did I Accomplish? – My Bucket List


So, for the past couple of years, usually a bit closer to New Year but I’m late, I post a “goals/bucket list” post on my blog to give me things to strive towards and see what I’ve accomplished in the past 12 months. 2017 was an absolute rollercoaster of emotions and I can’t say it was the best one of my life, but it’s been the year where I feel like I’ve grown most and learnt a lot so at least I had some benefits come out of it. Following tradition, I wanted to share with you what I’ve done, how far I’ve come and how far I have to go to accomplish all the goals I set for myself.

I didn’t manage to cross off many last year which sucks but i’m looking to accomplish a lot more this year and better myself as a person every day. However, here’s a list of things I’ve accomplished that weren’t on my bucket list:

• Save up £500
• Travel abroad by myself
• Reach 500 subscribers on YouTube
• Reach 20,000 readers on my blog
• I’ve been blogging for 4 years
• Move to self-hosted
• Reach 250 likes on my Facebook page
• Make more connections

I’m sure there are plenty of other things I accomplished that I can’t think of right now but I’m slowly progressing in life which is better than not progressing at all. I hope you all have an incredible 2018 and may you be blessed with self-love and happiness. If you have any suggestions of things to add to my bucket list then make sure you tweet me!

See you next Monday!
