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.
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!
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.
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!
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?
