New Year Resolutions - My Top 5 goals for 2020

Hi everyone

A New Year's resolution is a tradition in which a person resolves to continue good practices, change an undesired trait or behavior, to accomplish a personal goal, or otherwise improve their life. When I published the "2019 year end reflection and review" post, I noticed some comments stating it was non-achievable to set your mind on something and actually work hard to achieve it. So today, I would like to share some tips, based on my personal experience, on how you make the "new year, new me" into a reality. I actually prefer "new year, better me".

So what's work for me is not to go over 5 new goals per year so I can also improve, if need be, whatever goals I I have not fully achieved the previous year. I also try to review every month (some of them are being reviewed almost daily: hair, health, weight, workout) to ensure that I am on track or at least make some progress. So today I am sharing my top 5 2020 goals with you:

  1. Create more time for the kids;
  2. Spend more quality time with hubby (we always together as we have been lucky enough to work full-time together but we need to go out more often);
  3. More savings;
  4. Increase my clientele base & stabilized my consultancy services;
  5. Generate more revenue from the blog.

Follow-up from last year goals:
  1. Healthy lifestyle: Keep my weight down between 110 lbs.-115lbs. (currently 113lbs.) and be more disciplined in my workouts.
  2. Healthy Hair Journey: I exceeded my hair length goals of bra-strap to something between mid-back and waist length. I want to fully reach waist length and to maintain them healthy.

Outfit details:

Venue: Yearly Family dinner (sorry for the lighting issue)

What about you? Did you archive all or part of your 2019 goals? What is your ultimate goal for 2020? Comment below. I would love to know. And again, best wishes for the new decade.

Thanks for stopping by.

  1. Such a darling little white dress! And I love the leather jacket with it. Your goals are totally achievable and I say do whatever works for you! If it is making resolutions, setting goals, creating a word of the year, or doing nothing different at all, to each her own! Wishing you much success in the new year!


  2. Excellent advice in regard to keeping the number of goals manageable. I think people underestimate the work it takes to change a habit, and often make more resolutions than they can reasonably be expected to achieve.


    1. Indeed, it's very hard to change a habit. Thanks Michelle

  3. Such a pretty white dress. I'm still working on my goals for 2020. Let's work on our better-selves. o)


  4. Your white dress is adorable! Love it. Jacqui x

  5. I actually think it's good to have things to look forward to achieving each year. I suppose it's that "hope" thing. But I do work at my goals, and yes, sometimes life has other plans for me. Kei te pai (Maori for "it's all good")

    1. Although life may have other plans for you. it is good to have some of your own.

  6. Fabulous white dress Iris! Your goals are very realistic and I find them inspiring. It's certainly possible to improve our lives (and our selves) by changing habits. Good luck with your resolutions! Thanks for linking up at #WowOnWednesday.

  7. Love your beautiful eyelet dress, looks fabulous with the black moto jacket. I think your goals are very attainable!
    thanks for linking!

  8. What a cute little white dress on you! These seem like great goals for the year ahead! :) I'm trying to spend less this year, that was my goal last year too so I'm interested to see if I can drop my spending any lower!

    Hope that you had a great weekend :) Thanks so much for joining the #WeekdayWearLinkup! A new link up is live on my blog now, I'd love you to join again.

    1. lol Mica - this is a hard one as we, as women, love to spend :-). Let us see what 2020 brings :-)

  9. I love these goals and feel like ours are similar! It's not easy to stay focused but here's to keeping each other accountable! :)

    1. The struggle is real. I made a lot of efforts last year. Let's see if I can improve this year :-)


  10. I tried this several years ago and had a terrible time with getting all of it to be straight. I eventually made some shorter, some longer and used that layout.

    1. You should definitely go by what you think will work best for you ;-)
