17 Goals, Dreams & Ambitions for 2018 | Mrs Jibril

Hi lovelies, Happy New Year! I can’t believe today is the last day of 2017; in a very blogger manner here is my last post of the year. As some of you know I love writing my goals and targets down because then I will be more likely to achieve them or at least attempt to achieve them. Here are my 17 goals, dreams and ambitions for 2018 divided into 5 categories.



  1. Sleep early – I noticed that I have been sleeping really late even though I need to wake up early. In 2018 this needs to change so that my body get enough rest and sleep each night.
  2. Drink more water – for glow skin and better health, water is essential. I need to start drinking my 8 glasses of water a day.
  3. Get my Australian License and buy a car – I’m already doing my driving lessons each week and hopefully will be able to get my license soon * We got a Yaris hatchback


  1. Soccer lessons – I want E to like sports, soccer is always a good activity for little children around his age.  we started soccer trial in October.
  2. Swimming lessons – Once my husband joins us, I want baby E to start his swimming lessons. He loves the water and it will be a fun bond experience for them.
  3. Start the library challenger 1000 books before preschool – Our local library has a fun challenge for kids to read 1000 books before preschool (4 years) Baby E already read so many book but in 2018 I want to keep count of the book we read and maybe suggest to you the books we enjoy.


  1. Visiting Kenya – we do plan to visit Nairobi next year and visit my in laws.
  2. Hubby moving to Melbourne – we did apply for my husband’s visa and waiting to hear from immigration. I’m hoping he will be joining us sooner than later. *Update: My husband was granted his visa
  3. Explore Melbourne as a family – Melbourne is such an amazing city with so much to do. I want us to explore it together.
  4. Move to a bigger placeour current 2 bedroom apartment is more than enough when hubby moves here but I’m hoping (dreaming) to move into a bigger place closer to my mum’s place once we can afford it. We moved down the road from my mum’s house in September


  1. Post weekly and pre-plan my posts – with my big move, starting a new job and starting my YouTube channel unfortunately I ended up not posting as often as I liked. I feel rather disappointed because blogging is and will always be my passion for 2018 expect to see more posts.
  2. Collaborate with other bloggers and take part in blog series – in January I will share with you a post I did with a fellow mummy blogger from the U.K and I will continue to look for great opportunities to get to know other bloggers in my niche and hopefully collaborate.
  3. Grow my Mrs Jibril brand– I want to build a strong and recognisable brand for my blog.


  1. Start a career series – giving helpful career tips because of my background in Human resources and also recently trying to start a career after motherhood. My series will be helping others with thing like job interviews, picking a career after university, getting back in to the job market, etc.…
  2. Get more subscribersplease help me get to 100 subscribers, I’m only 2 subscribers away. *Update: I’m currently at 122 subscribers thank you so much (16.01.18)
  3. Do videos with hubby – my husband is quite shy and I will need to convince him to appear in my videos. Check out my first video with my  hubby ” The Husband Tag
  4. Attempt vloggingit will require a lot of courage, now all my videos are on the coach when I’m alone in the house so vlogging is a whole new game to film myself in public. Watch my first vlog and let me know what you think

Stay tuned to see if I accomplish any or all of these goals, dreams and ambitions in 2018.

Thank you so much for your continuous love and support. Thanks to everyone who reads my posts and shares them.

I hope 2018 brings us all happiness and health. Let’s have a great year lovelies.

Share with me one thing you would like to achieve in 2018

Thanks for stopping by,

mrs jibril

    that lot should keep you busy! Drinking more water is top of my personal goals this year. Vlogging was a failed goal for me for last year… i’ve side swiped it into this years social media/business goals as an indirect target, maybe it will feel less scary that way

    Happy New Year! Oh yes to the sleep. I’m exactly the same and end up going to be terribly late, but having to get up super early. I think that plays havoc with skin as well and not drinking enough water. Exciting times ahead with hubby joining you 🙂 #DreamTeam

      Happy New Year Annette, I haven’t been sleeping early yet even though today is 08/01 but I’m hopeful that I will make it a habit to sleep at 10pm every night so that I can have energy to keep up with work and my toddler.
      I usually wake up extra early even during the weekends but I feel like it is finally catching up to me! On the bright side I have been drinking plenty since the start of the year, fingers crossed I keep it up.
      Thanks for reading my list, I hope 2018 brings you and your family health and happiness xx

    You have some great goals here and good luck doing them, even if you don’t fully complete them by the end of the year then just look back at what you have achieved. It certainly looks like you’re on track for a great year. Thanks so much for linking up at #fortheloveofBLOG. Claire x

      I did that last year but it was all my blogging goals because I was new to blogging back then.
      I did accomplish some of them but not all. In my opinion even small steps in the right direction are worth it.

      I hope you also have a fantastic year.

      Thank you so much for hosting #fortheloveofBLOG and commenting on my post xx
