Happy 2018 everyone! We decided to poll the girls in the office on their goals, dreams and aspirations for 2018. Some reckon New Year’s resolutions are SO 2017, others have some clear ideas….

Monade – Explore and travel more

A passport has approximately 26 blank pages and is valid for 10 years. In my previous passport (that expired about 2 months ago) only 2 of the 26 pages were stamped as I lived in the Netherlands for 1 year and spent almost half a day in Namibia. At the start of each year I challenge myself to travel more, not only internationally but locally as well. This year I will follow through and not waste another 26 pages. “If we were meant to stay in one place, we’d have roots instead of feet”. Let the money saving start and the travelling begin. Bucket list destinations for the year includes: Botswana, Zimbabwe (Vic Falls), Zambia, Vietnam, Thailand, Cambodia, Singapore & Malaysia.

Bianca – I don’t believe in New Year’s resolutions and my real name is last-minute-dot-com

People love micro managing their lives to the last T. What are we going to eat tonight? What am I going to wear to that work thing tomorrow? I wish my hips were smaller – no more carbs starting Monday… yeah right. Not me, the word resolution means “a firm decision to do or not to do something”. Today I might decide to not eat chocolates anymore, but I most certainly will not abandon my sweet friends for an entire year. I want to travel the world, but I’ll only start planning the trip a week before. I might not believe in New Years resolutions but maybe I’ll start a new trend of New week resolutions.

Lauren – In past years, when it came to new year’s resolution, getting into shape and getting out debt was the trend for many people.  This year, I’d like to take a different route.

  1. To become more confident and take some chances: If you are confident other people notice it, and it is much easier to have your opinions heard, ask people out on dates and get ahead at work among other things. I think that caring too much about what other people think keeps me back a bit and I aim to change this in 2018.
  2. Another new year’s resolution I’d like to take up is writing. I used to love writing and it was something I did all the time when I was a teenager, but this year I think I’d like to start again as it is a great stress reliever and a great way to express yourself not just emotionally but artistically as well.

Khunji – This year I will wake up every morning:

  • Be awesome,
  • Work very hard
  • Live life colorfully,
  • Choose happiness every day,
  • Chase adventure and do what I love 😊
  • And lastly stay out of debt!

Imogen – be healthier, travel more, hang out with my dogs more…

 Yandisa-think and dream big!

  • Learn to believe and stand up for myself
  • Overcome fear and dream big
