So we are already 3 days into the new year! The beginning of the year is like a clean slate. A blank page ready to be written. It’s a perfect place to start if you want to make changes to your life or work towards something you want!
2016 was a great year. I started my blog in July, had a great year as a makeup artist, and made some great memories. I’m looking forward to what this year has in store for me and my little family!
New Year’s resolutions have always just went right over my head. Never felt the need to make any. This year is different for me. I have a few goals that I plan to work for and hope I achieve them!
Goal #1: Growth!
I love blogging and it’s been a learning experience the past 6 months I’ve had my blog. This year I want to grow my blog and audience! I plan to get more content out and connect with my readers. I want to get feedback from my readers to know what they like and what I can do to improve. I’m going to work hard to make my blog amazing and something that will help/inspire people!
Goal #2: Get Healthy!
This is kind if a cliche but I really want to start eating healthier and taking care of my body! I eat a lot of junk food and fast food because it’s just easier with my schedule. Bad excuse I know but I’m going to work to put a stop to that. I’m going to try to cook everyday, keeping it healthy!
I also will get back into a fitness routine to get my body in shape. A few years ago I struggled to gain weight until I hit the gym. I gained the weight I wanted and it was all muscle! I’ve been very happy with my body up until the past couple weeks. I’ve gained some weight that I don’t really want and I would like to be toned again! So I’m going to push myself to go to the gym everyday to get back to the body I’m happy with!
I also want to try out yoga and pilates so hopefully I can start that this year too!
Goal #3: Save $ To Travel!
I’ve been dying to travel the world for years and years! I planned to travel this year but with the way things are looking I probably won’t be able to. The next best thing is to save money to travel in 2018!
Blake and I are planning to travel in 2018 so we are going to be saving our money to do just that. There are so many places I want to see and I want to make sure we can next year.
Goal #4: Make New Friends!
So i’m generally not the type of person to make lots of friends or interact with people I don’t really know. Lol. I kind of blame it on the fact that I have a twin. I’ve never gone through life alone she’s always been by my side so I never thought to make friends. I have Alex so why bother? Lol. I want to change that and make some new friends.
Goal #5: Read More Books!
So I already read a lot of books now but this year I want to read more educational and inspirational books! I love my romance books but I want to expand and read books with meaning and something that can help me in my life. I want to read books that will give me a new outlook and teach me something that I can apply to my life.
Goal #5: Monthly Goals!
So I’m making it a goal to make monthly goals lol. Honestly I think having something to work towards each month will be good. There are always small things you want to achieve and setting monthly goals is one way to do it. For example, I want to have around 1000 pageviews in one month. Or lose 5 lbs. Small things that still are important can be done in a month.
Let’s Make It Happen!
That pretty much sums up my goals for the new year! I plan to stick to them and make them happen! Some of them are easier than the others but that’s just more motivation to get it done!
Whether it’s big or small a new year is a great opportunity to start over and make things happen! What goals do you have for 2017? I’d love to hear them!
