2019 goals toolkit [+ giveaway]

I loved Sophie Cliff's post on setting goals about feeling rather than doing, and so this year I'm not going to strive for more followers, write out a list of places to visit, or aim to finally lose the baby weight (is it still considered baby weight after three years?!).
