2020 Goals

Hello new decade of opportunities. A cliché post to start the New Year. For me however, this goal setting period has become one of my favourite times of the year. 

The New Year seems to create a great divide when it comes to people’s attitudes. I observe people to be either in a post Christmas slump or in a very excited way about the possibilities of the new year.

The 2019 Wrap Up

Howdy All,

I did that thing again, where I forgot to post. As much as I love blogging and still love the same interests (minimalism, finance, goal setting, etc.). I don’t have as much time as I used to for all of it. To put it simply, Brisbane is busier. Update, I love it here. It feels much more suited to where I am at in life.

I am starting to reset and prepare for a New Year. As part of this, I reflect and set my goals for the next year. As I often write majority of this down, I thought I would share this with you. I will have a busy last week of 2019, with my family coming to stay with me (eek, I am so excited!).

It may not of been the year I expected, however it was the year I neededBig mood for 2019.

This year I have decided, I want to treat my personal finances like a business. I found myself wondering if we were to be more aware of our own relationship with money, and choose to ‘own’ it, would we be more successful with our finances?

Financial Goals

Happy Sunday!

A huge interest of mine, more so since studying, is personal finance. I’ve always gravitated to numbers, tracking, statistics it seems. I’ve watched YouTube videos, read books, listened to podcasts and followed many blogs and Instagram pages on personal finance. I have familiarised myself with both Dave Ramsey and Barefoot Investor methods. Unfortunately, I found neither of these particularly resonated with my way of living (or wanting to live). I think this is because I wanted something sustainable or practical to follow. Much like health and fitness or weight loss goals, I wasn’t looking for the quick fix, or a quick way to lose my debt. I wasn’t even looking for a one size fits all solution.
