Reflection of 2015 & Goals for 2016

I hate the cliche “new year new me”, but I have to admit that there is something about a new year that is so refreshing. January is the month to get organized and think forward on what you want your year to look like. For me, I personally like monthly goals as opposed to yearly ones, because I find that things get lost in the way but this year I have some defined things that I want to do.

Travel

My first plane ride was when I was 2 months old, so it’s safe to say that traveling is in my bones. I absolutely love it! I’ve been fortunate enough to have a family that loves to travel and thus I have been able to tag along to places all over the world, but this year I plan on making my own adventures. I have Tahoe booked for February and Europe for October. So excited to see what else this year will bring!

Confidence

I ended the year 2015 on a fairly high note. I was finally in the gym and challenging myself in ways I had never physically done before. It really helped with my overall confidence and feelings about my look (the way I dressed etc) I also started to hone in on my minimalist wardrobe concept, my day to day beauty routine, hairstyles that I liked and could afford to do regularly. All in all spending a lot of time on my appearance. This year I want to continue that but on a bigger level. I want to actually reach my target weight, I want to feel confident enough to take outfit and beauty photos for the blog and overall feel comfortable enough to put myself out there.

Blog

I know every blogger talks about ways the want to improve the blog itself, but I feel like for me this blog is always a reflection of where I’m at in life. If I’m super busy, then things are late with the blog, or maybe even dare I say sloppy? If I have a lot of time on my hands then my posts are more detailed, If I don’t feel confident then I don’t want to post any pictures of myself, here or on social media……..and the list goes on and on. My goal is that as I spend more time focusing on the goals above that I will be inspired to share and hence grow and invest more in my blog. I really think that this could be something special and I plan on nurturing it so that it can grow to its fullest potential!

Discipline

Last year was a big chaotic for me, I had just moved back to the Bay Area, I had no job for the first three months, and when I finally found one it was a freelance gig. Nothing felt very secure and I was constantly working to get myself in a more stable position. Now that I’m in a better place I want to be more intentional and disciplined with my goals, especially the ones I have listed above. I spent all last year thinking about what I would do when I finally got settled and now that I have I want to work hard to accomplish things.

What are some of your goals for 2016?

    I get really inspired by the clean slate of a new year too. Europe sounds like an amazing trip– how long will you be there? I go through similar cycles with my blog as well. Sometimes, plain and simple, life gets in the way but for 2016, my goal is consistency. Slow and steady wins the race, right?! Haha, let’s hope so.

    Cheers to 2016!

      Hey melody! I’ll be going to Spain, France, Italy, Greece & Turkey. And I’ll be gone for roughly 3 weeks.
      Yes slow and steady is my motto too! Even if I don’t have the perfect picture or whatever I’m not going to let that discourage me!

      Thanks so much for stopping by! =)
