As the new year fast approaches, it’s a great time to reflect on your past one. Hopefully, 2019 was a year of growth and success for you.
Most likely, you’ve also made a few mistakes along the way, too, which is entirely natural. The path to being your absolute best isn’t about never making mistakes, but being able to reflect on them and grow in the future.
Whether it’s your career, love life, social or personal life, consider what went right (and wrong) this year so you can level up in the new year!
1. Consider Your Biggest 2019 Trip-Ups
An excellent way to have a great 2020 is to recognize where things could’ve gone better this year. What were some of your biggest mistakes or regrets?
You don’t have to dwell on the negatives, but it’s essential to recognize where things went wrong so you can know how to make them right. Perhaps you made a wrong career move, or dated someone who turned out to be less-than-amazing.
Whatever the case, take some time to genuinely reflect and recognize how you can actively avoid making the same mistakes.
2. Focus on Your Goals
What do you want to accomplish in 2020? It’s essential to be mindful of your goals, both long-term and short-term. Make these goals your priority in the new year.
Are you ready to find a long-lasting relationship? Or, do you want to remain single to focus on other things? What career-related accomplishments or milestone would you like to cross off your to-do list?
Recognize where your priorities lie. Keep them in mind going into the new year and throughout it. Go as far as writing your goals down so you can gauge your success, making adjustments as needed.
3. Make an Effort to Socialize More
Whether it’s going out with friends or going on dates, make an effort to socialize more in the new year. Not only will it make you happier, but it can help you expand your horizons, too.
You could try a new restaurant, bar, or even a new workout class with friends. As for dating, you could challenge yourself to be more out there and adventurous when it comes to dates.
You don’t have to push yourself farther than you’re comfortable. However, if you’ve been less than social in 2019, consider expanding your social horizons in 2020.
4. Identify Your Relationship Goals
If you’ve been single in 2019 and are going into 2020 the same way, you may be feeling antsy to get in a relationship. Or, you may be content with your single life!
There is no right or wrong relationship status. In 2020, take time to consider what you want in a relationship. Are you still looking to date casually? Or, do you want to find someone who you can be with long-term?
It’s crucial to have your relationship goals established before you enter the dating scene next year!
5. Make Yourself a Priority
More than anything, make sure you put yourself first in the new year. If you devoted too much time to pleasing others this year, try to make decisions based on your preferences this time around.
Put your wants, needs, and priorities before anything else. Furthermore, refuse to settle for less than you’re worth. Leave behind bad relationships in 2019-make 2020 the year of expecting only the best!
A new year is exciting because it presents the opportunity for growth and introspection. Utilize this time to set goals for 2020 and recognize what you want to accomplish.
