Happy 2016, friends! Hope you had a wonderful weekend after the celebration. It was kind of amazing that Christmas and New Years both fell on Fridays this year. It was two full straight weeks of festivities (and time off for the Pilot; reason enough for celebration right there!) and we are getting back in the swing of things. I would say this is finally a *normal* week, but my mom is coming, and Livi’s birthday is on Friday, so more partying is in store. 🙂
As you guys know, I’m not a huge resolution-er. I feel like if you want to make a change, do it now, instead of waiting for an ominous date on the calendar and the unnecessary pressure that can accompany said date. At the same time, a fresh new year is a great opportunity to reflect on what you’d like to get rid of, what you want to accomplish, and habits you’d like to keep in the new year. In the past, I would make a glittery inspiration board to hang in the closet and remain mindful of my goals. When you have visual reminders of your goals, you’re more likely to create steps each day to accomplish them. Since the beautiful invention that is Pinterest, I’ve started using that as a mode to track ideas for my own goals, and love when you share yours with me, too.
Here are some of the things I’d like to accomplish on the personal, health, and career fronts in the new year. (You can check out my inspiration board pins here!)
