My Goals For 2023

My Goals For 2023

I generally never post on Sundays. It’s my day off. But today is not just another Sunday. Today is officially the first day of 2023. Or the second day of 2023 depending on what time zone you’re in… Anyway, since today is the first post I will be posting on Lifesfinewhine, I wanted it to be about my goals for 2023.

I don’t really do resolutions but I like to make some goals for myself to help me improve as a person. So here are some of my goals for 2023:

Finish Writing At Least One Book

As you may know If you have been following this blog since 2022, I have been trying to write a book. I actually started it in 2021. But of course, you can’t force the process and I write when I’m in the right mood to. Last year, I expanded to writing three books simultaneously. It’s been fun but also pretty difficult. This year, I’m hoping to finish at least one of those books. I don’t want to pressure myself too much so this isn’t written in stone or anything, but it would be nice if I could finish one book by the end of 2023.

Learn To Play The Guitar

This is a goal I’m carrying forward from 2022. I have wanted to learn to play guitar for years and last year I finally got one. Since I got it towards the end of 2022, I didn’t have much time to learn how to play it. But I really want to learn how to play it in 2023.

Grow Down

This is another goal I am carrying forward from 2022. For those of you that don’t know what “growing down” means (because I literally invented it and pretended like it was a real thing), it simply means I want to live like a child again. And by that I don’t mean throw tantrums (although I do see some tantrums in the near future.) I want to do things that make my inner child feel good. And I want to enjoy life the way I did when I was younger.

I already started doing that last year by getting a guitar. I also started playing online games again. When I was younger, I had such a blast playing online games with my friends at school or my sister at home. I particularly love the food related games because I find those so relaxing since I played food related games when I was younger too. I love a number of the games like Cooking Fever and Pizza Cafe but my personal favourite is the Chocolate Shop game! Does anyone else really enjoy food related games or am I just weird? Maybe it’s because I’m obsessed with food in real life too, lol.

Chocolate Shop Game Free Online Food Related Games

Another thing I want to do in 2023 is more art. I loved art as a teenager and when I was younger but stopped because I didn’t have time as I got older. But this year I want to make time and continue creating my art whether on my phone or in real life.

Dye My Hair

I have ALWAYS wanted to dye my hair but it just was never the right time. I was thinking of dying my hair when I got my haircut last year. But I decided to postpone it because there’s a wedding in my family (not mine lol) in January and they seem like people who wouldn’t appreciate someone with coloured hair in their wedding pictures. So I’ll probably dye my hair around the time of my birthday (4/20).

Have A Healthy Lifestyle

This is one I have been working on for a while now and want to continue with. As I mentioned in this post a while back, I have embarked on a journey to be healthier and eat healthier. I like the way having a healthy lifestyle makes me feel. It really helps with my physical and mental health. (My teenage self that wanted to be a rockstar would hate that those words were written by me and that I’m this person as an adult lol.)

Start A YouTube Channel

That’s right people, Lifesfinewhine is officially getting a YouTube channel after years of literally no one asking me to start one! This is probably the most exciting news I had to share with you guys. I also have a query (kind of). I am not very sure what to call the channel. Like I don’t want to just call it “Lifesfinewhine.” I want something like “Lifesfinewhine” or a pun on “Lifesfinewhine” like “Lifesfinevlogs.” But I can’t think of anything good. If you guys have any ideas, do leave them in the comments below because that would seriously help me out!

Travel More

Although I did travel a bit in 2022, I didn’t get to travel as much as I wanted to. So this year, I really want to make the most of it and travel as much as I can.

Have you set any goals for 2023? If so, what are your goals for 2023? Let me know in the comments below because I would love to hear from you or simply stop by and say hi!

  1. “Lifesfinevlogs.” sounds great, Pooja! I don’t have a YT channel but use it to grab music. I would love to see what your hair colour choice is! ❤️

    1. Thank you! I may go with purple for my hair but not too sure yet. I’ll have to talk to the person that does my hair first and see what would be best for me ❤️

  2. My goal for this year is to finish my second book before this year is out. I plan to write more, record some shows, do a bit of art, and probably write some music. I do want to do some research on my skin care line that I want to create. I also plan to update my other three sites to paid plans, but it will be a while though. I just want to be more productive this year. I just want to do different things that will help my mental health as well as my physical health. It is time for me to take my life back from depression, stress, and anxiety. This is going to be a great year. Have a great week.

    1. I wish you the best with your goals. They all sound like great ones. I know how much anxiety and depression can control your life so good for you for taking back control. Have a great week too.

  3. Sorry. Something went wrong and then I was out of the comments. I was saying that I couldn’t wait for the YouTube channel. Sounds awesome! I like the lifesfinevlogs idea, but maybe lifesfinehappenings, or lifesfineupdates. Something like that! Good luck!

  4. I can’t stand it. I think it is so cool that you got a guitar. Adult females never do that. Well why the hell not. Just don’t grow down so much you break the guitar. And about your bday. I don’t know if this is exclusive to US or worldwide but 420 symbolizes marijuana. LOL I’m not recommending it. But I’m not NOT recommending it either. In fact, if you really wanted to, I wouldn’t object to you breaking the guitar like a rock God.

    1. Thanks so much. Yeah I really wanted to learn an instrument and guitar was at the top of my list so I went with that one. Lol yeah I am very aware of 4/20 and think it’s a very appropriate birthday for me haha. I would absolutely love to break the guitar like a rockstar after playing the greatest solo of all time (another goal to add for 2023 lol).

  5. You don’t need to postpone something that you love to get appreciation from the society. I am referring to your postponing hair dying. Just do whatever you wanna do

    1. Thanks and I definitely know what you mean. It’s just I don’t want to stand out at the wedding which I’m guessing will be very in the social norms because it always give me anxiety to stand out.

  6. Great goals! I wish you the best, that you will get the power to reach all your objectives! Happy New Year! xx Michael

  7. I think you’ve got some good ass kicking plans for this year!

    Sending all the good luck to you on venturing into a YouTube Channel as well! That’s really awesome! I will also add that I personally vibe with the “Lifesfinevlogs” name.

    With all of that ambition and drive that I can sense from your words, I can tell you’re going to kick ass this year. 💪

    1. Thanks so much! “Lifesfinevlogs” is good but I feel like I may not do a lot of vlogs so it may not be appropriate. Let’s see. I really hope I kick ass this year but the year may just kick my ass 😂

      1. Ahhh yes I gotcha. That makes total sense. And who knows it may just kick my ass too! 😂 That is, unless I come in with my majestic unexpected left hook…oh shoot I just gave away my secret weapon, it’s probably kicking my ass now 😂

          1. That’s what I get for giving away my secret weapon. 😂 In all seriousness though, I hope that you’re having such a beautiful day today. And I’m confident you will kick ass this year! You’ve got this!

  8. Writing a book… I too plan to write it in near future
    One of my goal for this year is to learn atleast any one musical instrument
    Oh, I too loved playing these games
    Dyeing hair.. I am sure you’ll look good in them
    All the best for your healthy lifestyle and travel goals too😊

      1. Yeah book… It’s just an idea for now

        Not learning any at the moment, but I plan to learn one.. Guitar, piano, sitar (any one)

  9. Travel more at your own risk, ha-ha… I have never dyed my hair either, which color do you want to go for? starting a YouTube channel sounds like a fun adventure, yay

  10. I love your goals, especially the ‘grow down’ one. It’s good to reach into our inner child. If you ever play Boggle, I’m on there if you wanna play! My username on it is “kirstenghost”. And if you make a YouTube channel I would totally watch. You’ve established a huge audience here which is already a fantastic start for you. Many blessings and success for this new year my friend. 😍💕

  11. Is there a reason you don’t want Lifesfinewhine? It’s so unique and sets you apart. Could you not tact vlog at the end of it? I don’t have any ideas as not great with that stuff. Just wondered.

    On another note, sounds like a good year ahead. I would totally watch your videos. I hope you manage to meet your goals.

    1. I don’t know why but I’ve never liked the name “”Lifesfinewhine” even for my blog. It’s a silly name I came up with as a teenager and feel as though it won’t suit my YT.

      Thanks so much, appreciate it.

  12. I am so excited for the YouTube channel! Lifesfinevlogs sounds great – it connects your blog with the channel.
    I’m not sure what I want to do in 2023 yet. Just that I want to write

  13. Thanks for sharing your goals with us! Writing a book takes a lot of commitment. I’m a developmental editor (so in a nutshell, I focus on plot and character development). One of the authors I work with started writing her book a year ago and she is now working on the final stages. After rewrites and edits, she is looking forward to publishing this year.

  14. Omg I love food related games too!! My favourites are Cooking Fever and Hay Day. I personally think Lifesfinewhine is already a good name for the YouTube channel!!

  15. Growing down sounds so great. Often it is nice to pretend for a while that you arn’t an adult. Good luck with YouTube and the guitar. YouTube can be tough to crack with such large channels. But the process of making videos can be fun anyway 🙂

    1. Thanks so much and yes being childlike for a while helps a lot. I think for me YT will be more about fun and content. I don’t really care too much about growing it like I do my blog

  16. Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh wow!!
    I am excited to know this news.
    I want to read that book, I’ll buy it. Please complete it soon.
    Eating healthy is good, I am happy to know that it’s your choice and not a forced decision.
    I would like to see Blonde PG, jk. I think red will look good on you. Or how about Green? And then travel, that will signify Herbivore on a journey. Haha, a bad joke I guess.
    Growing down is a good concept, you need a separate blog for that. A suggestion not an order.
    How do you even get time for online game?
    Just how many PGs are there?
    Does your sister occasionally blog here? Well I don’t mind.
    Speaking of her, please say my Hi to her.
    Congratulation on YT. It will a fun idea to learn more about my favorite blogger, through a new way. However, I don’t use YT much, but now you will make YT worthwhile. I suggest you to go with Lifesfinewhine as channel name, because if you won’t, I will, haha
    Jokes apart, I think keeping the name of the channel same as site because, that would not create further confusion.
    Usually if the name is similar everywhere, it will be easy to remember.
    Your Site name is your identity now, it represents you, your brand, The PG brand. Plus take less space on Business card and portfolio.
    Think about it, however it’s your decision buddy, I am super happy for you dear.
    Seeing you on Monday is great. Hugs

    1. Thanks so much. Lol the book is a work in progress for now.
      Lol never ever blonde. I’m thinking purple highlights for now. Not too sure though.
      My sis says hi back!
      Haha yeah I may just have to use Lifesfinewhine for YT too since it seems I’m stuck with it. Should have changed my domain when I had the chance 😂

  17. Some great goals here, best of luck with them all. I am definitely also making 2023 the year of creating more art and more writing. These are things I have always loved but did not do enough of due to circumstances last year. Here’s to a healthy, happy and creative 2023!

  18. Hi Pooja, Hmm – as always you inspire me. Now, I’ve set 3 goals that’ll keep to myself for now. Regarding yours: Wow! Very ambitious. You’ve written much about how you schedule your time and how important that is. So … keep that in mind? w/r/t finishing a book, a YouTube channel, travel, guitar and all. All require time and discipline. Discipline you got. Good luck.

    1. Thank you so much. All the best for your goals. I hope you achieve them. And yes, the time is really the problem but I am hoping things fall into place if it’s meant to be.

  19. These sound so exciting! Good luck Pooja. I hope to start a youtube channel too. Just fear and anxiety getting in the way but fingers crossed 🤞

    1. Thanks so much! I put it off for so long because of anxiety too but this year I just decided to go for it. I hope you do the same and if you do start a YouTube channel I’ll definitely subscribe.

  20. Writing a book is a huge task. Dying hair is a very bad idea. It will make your hair worse. If you want to color your hair, use Mehandi/Heena. Never use chemical products. If you use any wrong product by mistake, your hair will start growing grey. Use even natural or herbal products only if you are sure because some companies sell their product claiming to be natural or herbal by hiding chemicals used in their products.

    1. Thanks so much. I have picked products that I know suit my hair and I won’t be dying my roots so there won’t be an issue of damaging my hair. I’ve tried henna but it made my hair really dry which led to a lot of hair fall.

  21. I love your goals Pooja and I wish you all the best with them! Please don’t be like my husband who bought his guitar and left it sitting in a corner of our room untouched 🤣. Regarding dying your hair, I have never dyed my hair in my entire life and at 54 I barely have any gray hairs. Right or wrong, but I swear there’s a correlation between frequent dyeing at an early age and graying 😊.

    1. Thanks so much! Lol mine is sitting in my office for now but it will be played soon 😂
      I think so too but the thing is I already have grey hair. I have early greying genes. And I plan to dye my hair below the roots so as not to damage it or cause greying.

  22. Happy New Year! Your goals for the year ahead are fantastic, and I’m sure you’ll crush them! I especially love the “growing down” part and will undoubtedly think about it again because I just love this idea! It’s also amazing that you want to start a Youtube channel!! Sadly I don’t have any name ideas but “lifesfinevlogs” sounds great!!

  23. Good for you! All wonderful goals! Regarding books, not to worry, sometimes you need to let it sit for a while to come back with fresh eyes. Having been through that process, I have learned to respect it instead of feeling like a blossoming failure for not completing something I set out to do. Books have a mind of their own sometimes!

    Wishing you and your readers a wonderful and magical New Year!

  24. I hope you accomplish all of your goals this year. Congratulations on starting your YouTube channel. I know it will be a success. My goal is trying to write my first book. Maybe getting a salaried job can squeeze into one of my goals too. That would mean less stress for me. Another goal is to write and blog more and get more followers and really make this work for me. I know you will be very successful in all of your ventures.

  25. Hello! Your goals sound super cool. If you do end up starting a YouTube channel, definitely let us know! I’d subscribe and share with my 10k+ subscribers. The finish a book goal is something I think we’d like to keep updated on also – please do!

  26. Growing down sounds like a great idea! Keep your inner child alive while you can because I assure you if you let it die, it doesn’t come back. Lol

  27. Nice goals. Wish you all the resilience and motivation to get them done. BTW dying your hair is a good idea. It just refreshes you in some way. I went and got highlights done in the last year and I enjoy the colors so much now.

  28. Your goals are fabulous! I haven’t dyed my hair in 25+ years, I’m waiting to get a gorgeous head of silver hair that many women my age have! Nothing yet! lol!!

    I made a few goals, we’d like to power through our new mortgage quickly, i’d like to read through my collection of paper books & i’d like to donate to our local food back every month! Nothing earth shattering, but achievable I think! Happy New Year!

    1. Thanks so much! I’ll lend you some of my greys I already have a couple lol 😂

      Best of luck on all those goals, definitely achievable. Thanks!

    1. Thank you so much! One is a poetry book, one is a psychological thriller and not sure what the third one is. I’ll just where I goes lol 😅

  29. Looking forward to your youtube channel and book, Pooja! In terms of hair dye colour , purple seems to be the new black haha. But I am thinking of some red highlights myself. Also, growing down seems like a cool life philosophy.

    Happy 2023!

  30. Growing down … I love that!
    I am in the process of doing that, too, and might have to borrow that term from you (with reference, of course).

    You have my admiration for playing the guitar.
    This is something I never managed well.

    And what exciting news about the YouTube channel!

    I also admire you for writing those books and I am looking forward to seeing posts about your travels, and healthy living as well as pictures of your new hair colour in Spring.

    I’m not big on new yearÄs resolutions, myself, but one goal I have is to get healthy, again, and get my life back into shape. You probably have guessed that, already.

    1. That’s wonderful. Yes, do borrow the term I’m trying to make it a thing haha.

      Thanks so much. I don’t know how good I’ll be at guitar but it’s something I really want to do.

      Yes, I have and I wish you all the success with that.

      1. I’m sure you’ll soon play us some guitar songs on YouTube. (And if not, you’ll still have a lot of fun trying yourself out and learning.)

        Thanks for letting me borrow the term ‘growing down’. It’s such a perfect one.

        Also, thank you for the good wishes. 🙏

  31. Happy New year. Saw you liked my post. We have similar goals it seems. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve resolved to write a book and never completed. I’ve even participated in NanoWriMo 4 times but alas, I give up after a week. So many ideas and multiple books started. You should learn the guitar, I’ve been playing since I was 14. You won’t regret it. I’m Grown Down, or maybe just never became a true grown up. I have nothing in common my peers (I’m a telecom engineering manager). I read comic books monthly, collect toys, photograph toys, like and play music, play Pokemon Go (ok with my grandson but still) and play online/PS4 games. I started a youtube channel but, you can guess, I got lazy after 4 postings. It’s a lot of work.

    We have a lot of goals in common. Want to challenge each other to complete one this year?

    1. Thank you so much. Happy New Year to you as well. I’ve started and given up on some books too but I really want these three to work out. Guitar definitely sounds so fun. I’m excited about that. Those are great ways to “grow down.”

      Yes, let’s. That way we can keep each other on the right track.

  32. Omg I love all of this. Did we have the same childhood? Online games ftw! Highly recommend learning the guitar and damn, you’ve got me inspired to keep writing my own book ✍️ stoked to have found you on here and will be perusing your blog further 🌟

    1. Omg that’s so cool that we have so much in common. Online games were just the best growing up. They were so simple but so fun. Definitely keep writing your own book. Thank you 😊

  33. Love the pictures you posted. And a youtube channel? That’s a wonderful thought. Lifesfinetube? Lifesfinemotion? I am really inadequate with puns, not only in English, LOL. And wish you achieve all these things.

  34. More strength to go through with all your goals this year. Saw a comment that said “Lifesfinehappenings” think that’s perfect for your YT channel. Can’t wait for that🤞🏼

  35. Hello, thank you for liking my web blog ‘marine moments’ – yours is good too and I often read your latest – happy new year and good luck with your book(s) – I have my first book (fiction – mystery) being published on 29th March 2023 – it is very exciting – and scary!!

  36. Thanks for reading my post–your goals for your new year really combine fun, self-care, and creativity! Hey, if you need help with your book(s), I tried a writing and publishing coach named Russell Martin, who is also an author and filmmaker. He has a small press too–he decided to publish my book, He’s so supportive in the whole process and is helping guide me with marketing as well. I don’t get any kickback from recommending him, I just like the guy and what he’s done for my book! Check him out here if you’d like:

  37. growing down…..awesome phrase; love it! you have some great goals set for yourself and i hope you accomplish them all this year. 🙂 best of luck to you!
