So 2017 has come and gone. If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll notice I posted a little blurb about how this year was a rollercoaster. While 2017 had it’s shortcomings, I definitely came out better than the end of 2016. Let’s be real though, the end of every year sucks because we look back and focus on all the things we didn’t accomplish.
So here I am again ready to make my cliché reso-lose-tions. This time, instead of focusing on everything I didn’t accomplish, I’m going to focus on the things I did accomplish and set attainable goals that will help me keep up my success.
Goal 1: Sharing is caring
One of the things I found success in was this very blog. In addition to the collaborations it’s earned me, I found that the more vocal I am, the happier I am. I finally feel comfortable and confident in myself to share my personal thoughts. I am particularly proud that I started my year by sharing that I have anxiety on this blog, and because of that, I now know that there are others experiencing the same issues as me. Going into 2018 I look forward to sharing more of my personal experiences.
Goal 2: Mental well-necessary
I can’t really declare my mental health a “success” but I can definitely say that I’m happier than I’ve been in years and I’ve been able to successfully keep it up. I don’t necessarily look forward to the hard work it takes to stay pawsitive, but I know that I can do it. I guess I can say that I’ve found success in not just sharing on my blog, but I’ve also found success in sharing my concerns with friends and family. Going forward my goal is to prioritize my mental health – to take the breaks I need and take time to do things that help me get back to my normal.
Goal 3: You should go and love yo self
I feel like I’ve quoted the Biebs so many times on this blog, but it’s TRU DEAU (that’s a little Canadian humour for you). 2017 was truly the year I embraced myself. It’s not to say that I am 100% comfortable in my skin (because I’m still very selfie-conscious), but I’ve learned to love my flaws. I know that I don’t look like society’s ideal woman or I don’t compare to those beautiful Instagram baddies, but that doesn’t mean that I’m not beautiful. I’ve learned to embrace my unique beauty and not give a fudge about the opinions of others. So in 2018, I’m going to work it because I’m worth it. Going to put my thing down, flip it and reverse it.
That’s it. Those are my resolutions…for now.
While I’m making these promises to myself now, I know things change. I also don’t think resolutions have to start and finish at the beginning and the ending of a year respectively. Of course I’m going to try to set goals throughout the year and update you all of course 😉
It’s never too late to werk it.
Until next year haha
Happy New Year and see you in 2018! 🍾
