It’s no surprise that I love creating Goals, over the past twelve months, I have shared with you my Monthly Goals, these, in turn, help me to achieve both my Personal and Blogging Goals. January is the perfect month to create Goals for the whole year. Of course, that’s because it is, in fact, the start of the year! Also, there’s just something fresh and exciting about January.
Today, I am reflecting on my Personal Goals that I set at the beginning of 2019 and then creating new ones for 2020. 2019 was the first year I did this and to be honest, I’m very glad I did! It helped me to stay on track in the year and who doesn’t love achieving something. Then each month I’m helping to keep on track with my Goals by breaking them down monthly.
Has it really been one whole year since I posted This Time Next Year Tag 2019 on An Ocean Glimmer? 2019 went super quick, I still cannot believe it’s a new year and new decade. I can remember when I first shared the This Time Next Year Tag all the way back in 2017, that was when I first came across the tag and fell in love with the idea behind it.
What is the This Time Next Year Tag I hear you say? Well, it’s a tag created by Sarah Lemmon, aka Little Reader, it’s basically inspired by a British TV Show where you see people present their goals for next year. Then it flashes forward 365 days later to see if they have achieved them.
I hope you’ve had a lovely start to January. I’m really excited about the upcoming month, it’s the start of a new month and a new year. I cannot believe 2019 has been and gone. December was an amazing month, as usual, I had a lovely Christmas! You can read all about my Christmas here with my December Favourites.
As I’ve been away for a while I haven’t got any Goals to reflect on from the previous month so I’m going straight into my January Goals. Fingers crossed that I’ll be able to achieve all these Goals. I’ll also be reviewing my Personal Goals and Blogging Goals for 2019 that I set at the beginning of the year. Stay tuned for that post.
I did mention I wanted to share more stationery orientated posts on An Ocean Glimmer and I’m doing just that! I am always so proud of my blog, even more so when companies reach out to me and that’s the reason behind today’s post. It’s an introduction post to Mål Paper, a stationery company that produces stylish and simplistic stationery that helps to be more productive by focusing our minds on the most important tasks.
Their range of products is the result of seeking a solution to solve the common problem of jumping from one task to the next, without prioritising them or even completing the previous task. They were tired of having countless ‘to-do’ lists on notepads, notebooks and journals that did nothing more than complicate goals and tasks further, to the point of feeling overwhelmed and uninspired to hold themselves accountable.

Goodbye April, Hello May!
I hope you’ve had a lovely start to May, is the month treating you well? As it’s the beginning of a new month, it’s the perfect time to reflect on the Goals I set myself at the beginning of April. Then create new Goals for May, I’m really excited about the upcoming month. I already have loads planned! May will surely be a great month with everything I have planned.
As I explained recently in my 2019 Personal Goals Update, creating new Goals each month helps you to stay on top of what you want to achieve for the year. If you want to see what I got up to in April, I have shared my adventures in my Monthly Favourites // April 2019 here. It’s great to review and reflect each month, sometimes you even forget what you’ve done.

It’s great to have a Goal in mind, not just a daily or weekly one but yearly as well. I love creating Goals, I feel so inspired and it’s a great way to continue achieving. Back in January, I shared with you my 2019 Personal Goals, here I outlined exactly what I wanted to achieve over the course of the year. Now we’re nearly in May, it’s the perfect time to reflect on my Personal Goals and provide an update on progress.
I know I share my Monthly Goals but this doesn’t show the overall year story. When I’m setting my Monthly Goals, I try and keep my 2019 Goals in mind. It can be hard achieving your Goals, especially if it’s one you want to achieve in one year. Your Goals can be a lot easier to achieve if you think about them monthly. If you don’t create Monthly Goals, I would recommend starting now.

Last month, I shared my 2019 Personal Goals, it’s now time for my 2019 Blogging Goals. A range of Goals that I would love to achieve of the course of 2019 with my blog and social media platforms. Each month, my Monthly Goals will reflect my overall Goals, recently I’ve been pushing myself on Instagram and Twitter just to reach these Goals. While incorporating them monthly to my Goals.
2018 was a good year for An Ocean Glimmer, I reached 15k all-time views, I was close to reaching 1k Instagram followers, was a couple of days out and reached it in January. I have found some amazing people in the blogging community and attended my first blogger event with The Body Shop. Onwards and upwards in 2019, it’s going to be a good year for An Ocean Glimmer.
It’s February, can you believe how quick the year is going? I have had a lovely January, I hope the past month has treated you well. Today I am going to be reflecting on the Goals I set myself at the beginning of January. I love reflecting and creating new Goals each month, there’s something about it that makes me more determined to achieve them.
There are no resolutions for me, it’s all about setting Goals to succeed throughout the year. My Monthly Goals always relate to the bigger picture of my Personal Goals and Blogging Goals for the year. I love creating new Goals, it’s just something about them, it also makes sure you’re on target and also it’s helpful to keep remembering the bigger picture and those Goals.
January marks Get Organised Month, a month to reflect if you’re organised and if not, how to make yourself more organised. There are many ways of being organised, but some of us certainly have better organisational skills than others. A bit of organisation can make even the most chaotic of spaces relatively manageable.
Back in 2005, the Association of Professional Coordinators decided that they wanted to increase awareness of the significance of organisation. Studies show that individuals waste up to an hour every day on average, searching for things that they’ve misplaced. January is the ideal time for Get Organised Month since “change” is a popular New Year’s resolution.
As well as January just being a perfect month and to start the New Year off correctly. I have always been told I am a very organised person, for as long as I can remember I’ve been able to organise very well. It’s always a running joke at work! I always remember things that everyone else just forgets, I’ve even been called a uber-organisational superhero.
I can’t believe it’s been a whole year since I posted the This Time Next Year Tag 2018 on An Ocean Glimmer. What is the This Time Next Year Tag I hear you say? Well, it’s a tag created by Sarah Lemmon, aka Little Reader, it’s basically inspired by a British TV Show where you see people present their goals for next year. Then it flashes forward 365 days later to see if they have achieved them.
This is how the tag will work:
- Thank the person who tagged you
- Write your goals for next year
- Write how you’re going to achieve your goals
- Tag at least 5 of your blogger friends to share their goals
- Then if you wish in 365 days write a post for everyone to see if you have been successful or not!
