Happy New Year + Goals for 2017

Posted on Jan 1 2017 - 9:51pm by Ave

Home Life Abroad team wishes you Happy 2017! We hope that you are able to keep your New Year’s resolutions, achieve the goals you have set and make 2017 the best year ever!

Happy New Year Goals

I don’t do New Year’s resolutions because I’m really bad at keeping them, but I do set some goals. So without further ado here are my goals for 2017!

  • Spend more mother-daughter time with my daughter
  • Have more patience with her (sometimes I keep forgetting that she is just a kid)
  • Take time off for a “me time” regularly
  • Think more positively
  • Criticize less
  • Keep up with my skin care routine
  • Tackle the household chores before they get out of hand
  • Be more active on social media

What are your goals for 2017?

    My goals for the month is to finish up my bathroom project. I am currently renovating my master bathroom.

  • Got a great goal for yourself and your daughter. Truly family should comes first and of course, devoting this year to love yourself more.

    I plan to get my butt back in gear and work out more. As far as business goes, I am focusing on SEO and building my VA business.

      I have to focus on SEO too! There is so much to learn!

  • Happy New Year!

    I also want to be more active on social media–plus grow those accounts.

    I think it’s better to just set goals instead of resolutions. Happy New Year! And I hope you’re able to achieve all your goals for this coming year!!!

    • Ave T

      I prefer goals too! Happy New Year to you too!

  • Nice short list that’s achievable with some focus. Maybe I can follow your lead & do something similar for myself … and yes, I’m trying to get my new social media posting schedule straight.

  • Emma Oxley

    Happy New Year to you too – some great goals there. I also want to spend more mother daughter time, but with my mother!! Hop you manage to achieve all of this!

  • Happy New Year to you too, I am a goals person than resolutions too. Good luck with your goals

  • We almost have the same goals. I noticed my skin tends to get dry so I wanted to invest more on skincare rather than makeup.

  • I love goal setting. I think resolutions are outdated and everyone breaks them before the end of the year. Goals doesnt sound like it limited to a year it can be ongoing and it sounds more positive. Good luck with accomplishing your goals.

    Happy new year!! Nothing like a new year to start all our goals! One of mine is working so hard to redecorate my house <3

    If you have a knack for criticizing (we all do to some extent), you could turn that around and spin it in a more positive way. Doing that, there are no restraints for the number of attempts, but you’re words are better.

    Every year we all try to achieve some goals and it is good that you have goals that are pretty much close to mine. Spending more time with kids is the biggest gift and of course your patience test is all about handling them. I would love to travel to few of my favorite destinations as well this year!
