I can’t believe that we’re entering a new year already because I still catch myself writing 2017. Sometimes I go through a whole year not feeling like much in my life has changed, but than as I look back and reflect I realize how different everything really is. Every new year is a chance for growth, opportunities, accomplishing your goals, and making new memories along the way. I like to set goals for myself and write down all the things I would like to accomplish for the new year. Writing it down and being able to cross them off one by one gives me motivation through out the year. I hope sharing my goals with you inspires you to set your own. Cheers to a new year!
MY GOALS FOR
1. TAKE MY BLOG TO THE NEXT LEVEL
I launched my blog in July and it was such a huge accomplishment for me. I’ve always wanted to show case my outfit looks and creating this platform was perfect. Building my following on Instagram has helped me to connect with other bloggers as well as create friendships along the way. This year I want to figure out my brand’s image, the direction I want my blog to go in, be more creative with my content, and create a blog post schedule to stay consistent. I also want to collaborate with more brands.
2. SAVE MORE
I’ve always had a savings account and saved money here and there but this year I wan’t to save more. Recently I opened a second savings account to build a emergency fund in case something happens I will be able to cover those expenses. Recently On Pinterest I discovered different saving challenges you can do throughout the year to reach your savings goal some start off saving as little as $5. Saving is very important and getting a head start in life will only help you in your future.
3. PRACTICE SELF LOVE
This year I want to focus on me. My whole life I’ve always put others before myself making sure they were always okay even if I weren’t. I like to keep others around me happy and a lot of the times I forget to make myself happy too. So this year I want to get better in tune with myself, spend time by myself, and pamper myself. This is a very important goal for me.
I have seen so many people this past year traveling to different places such as Paris, Bali, Dubai, and more wishing it was me. I’m 26 and the only place I’ve ever been was North Carolina to visit my sister. This year I plan to travel a lot. I want to visit Miami, California, the Bahamas and to spend my birthday in Paris this year.
5. BUY A NEW CAR & MOVE OUT
We are only two days into the new year and I’m already having car trouble. I’ve had my car for 6 years now and unfortunately it’s on it’s last wheel. Although it may be hard to part ways, I find myself constantly putting money into it and it just isn’t worth it anymore. So as of now I am on the hunt for a much more reliable car. I also plan to spend time looking at apartments. I am so ready to move out and have my own space again, nothing is better than that.
