Goals for 2015 - Update

Hi Lovelies
I can't believe its nearly Christmas and also the end of 2015 and I'm already writing an update! I really think 2015 went by too fast, probably the fastest one I can remember. I almost forgot what my goals where for 2015 until I recently checked the post I wrote last year, I must admit I did not complete most of my goals but I did achieve other things which evens things out for me.
My Goals for 2015 were as follows
Schedule blog posts - This one was a bit of a hit and miss for me as I did have a few times this year where I actually did manage to post everyday but also they was other times that I completely had an irregular posting pattern. This is a goal that I will continue to have for 2016 and hopefully will be able to achieve, the dream is to post everyday in 2016.
Learn Arabic - I totally failed at this one to be honest, I know very little Arabic and I don't think I have even learnt anything new from 2014, I probably only know how to pray and simple things like the Arabic alphabet. I am a little disappointed with that but on the other hand I am happy with my learning of the Quran.
Complete my Makeup Artistity course -  I failed this one but not because I was rubbish at it or anything like that, its because I would rather be something else in life which I am currently working on and will share with you all later on. I am very happy with the way I apply my own makeup and my fab makeup collection I just don't think being a makeup artist is the job for me.
More Charity work -  I wouldn't say I did more charity work this year but I think I did a pretty good job in 2015 with giving to charity. Charity has always been important to me and every year I will continue to give and do as much as possible for people in need.
Be more confident -  Being confident is one the biggest thing I wanted to do in 2015 and I wouldn't say I'm the most confident person in the world but I have came a long way since the end of 2014 and hopefully through time my confidence will continue to get better and better.
Visit my dads side of family - unfortunately this is a goal I didn't do as they is so many reasons why such as its so far from where I live and its very expensive to travel for me with my 3 children and my husband at the moment too. Hopefully one day when my dad decides to talk to me.
Save money -  I think this one has went very well and we are very well onto our way of buying our own house. I am so looking forward to having my own house instead of paying rent and not being able to design the house the way I would like.
Lose weight -  I gained a lot of weight this year that I am not even going to write down how much I have gained because sharing it is not going to do anything. I am not even upset about it to be honest as I know I will loose it eventually through time. I am happy with the way I am at the moment and will continue to be regardless of what the scales say.
Did you achieve your goals for 2015?

  1. 2015 was an utterly unexpected year for me. I haven't really checked my goals list, but I did almost everything as planned. I turned 18 this year, which was quite a milestone (not my accomplishment though, haha!)

    Good luck with Arabic. I know the basics for Quran and religious things, but I wish to learn more. One day, InshaAllah!

  2. Good luck with your Arabic, I am trying to learn Hungarian but it's so difficult so when my other half teaches our daughter I try and listen and pick it up but it will be a long time before I can have a conversation, so I guess that's on my 2016 goals.

    I hit a huge milestone with my blog reaching over 1k followers which was crazy but also really lovely and has boosted my confidence. I hope I can grow it more next year!
