When you are looking back, where are you comparing with a year ago? If you are at the same place as last year and happy with it , good. If you haven't moved forward in spite of wanting to do so you should have a look what you can do to create positive changes in your life. This is a old saying but so true. Even the longest journey starts with one step. Don't try to do a lot of things at once, begin with one small thing. For example if you are tired of your work and want to something else. Sit down with paper and pen, yes not a tablet or computer. Write down what you like to do instead. Does it mean you need to get back to school in one form or another? On a more personal level, are you involved with someone who isn't good for you or you are together just because it's convenient, do yourself and the other person a favor and end it if you aren't able to change it. If you're in abusive relationship; psychologically or/and physical and can't get out. Get help! Maybe you have an old friendship that is only draining and don't give you anything. It's hard to break these off, many times it works itself out. You slowly drift apart.
I suggest make 2018 to the year you make a new friend and get a new hobby, both will change your life to the better.
Continue to make a plan how to get where you want to do, to get to your main goal. This could be a year, or 5-6 years from now. It's crucial to have a plan with steps how to get where you want to go.. Don't beat yourself up if you occasionally loose momentum so long as you slowly are moving forward. The Japanese word kaizen means moving forward. Move forward, even if it's with baby steps.!Try to put down short term goals and it perfectly alright to have modest goals.
It is holiday times and I wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy Healthy 2018!
