this week i decided to get a head start on my new years resolutions. it’s something i’ve been thinking about a lot recently. it could be the fact that i naturally just reflect on my year and goals, etc. when december hits, but there are so many things i want to accomplish in 2018.
YES 2018 – CAN YOU BELIEVE IT. like where did the last 20 years of my life go?
this weekend we also finally got a good amount of SNOW. once february hits, i’m sick of the snow. but i hate when it’s cold in december and we don’t have snow. it’s just a waste of freezing and cold weather lol
wake up earlier
i say this every night before i go to sleep BUT i really want to start waking up earlier. even just 15/20mins. it would make all the difference in my morning! it’s so so so so hard to wake up any earlier than you have to in the winter. i find that the fact that the sun isn’t up yet, just means i shouldn’t be either haha but i’m going to make much more of an effort.
i feel like for the most part, i’m a pretty confident person. BUT, i wouldn’t say i’m as confident as i could be. i still second guess like every picture i post on instagram and i’m constantly telling myself “i’m not good enough” when it comes to blogging, etc. that sort of negative thinking needs to stop! but in a world of social media and comparison, it’s no wonder i can’t help but think that way sometimes.
people are going to judge you no matter what the heck you post – and do you know what? – who cares! does it really matter what anyone thinks of the photos i post? or the content i write? no. it really doesn’t. it doesn’t affect my life or theirs in any way.
SO I NEED TO KEEP THAT MENTALITY ALL THE TIME. everyone on the internet is so sensitive anyway. it’s rather annoying. so i’m going to be confident and just post what i want because I CAN.
i’ve probably made this one of my resolutions since i was like 10 years old but PATIENCE. i am without a doubt the most impatient person you’ve probably ever known. it’s so horrible. i need to learn to relax and let things just happen when they’re meant to. this literally applies to my bagel taking too long to cook in the toaster to bigger things like reaching 5’7″. jk.. kind of
i’ve been in such a writing rut lately – with poetry and blogs and everythingggg. idk what it is. possibly the turn of the weather and seasons? i’m really not sure. but i def haven’t been hitting my goals as far as writing and what i want to accomplish. i’m going to really push myself in 2018. REALLY. with working a full time job and being a dog mom and just your typical every day life chores, it’s sometimes hard to manage a blog and make sure you write and even take time to do the things you love.
i really need to make sure every single week i am taking time out of my weekend to do what i enjoy. it can be so easy to get caught up in errands and chores and all of that jazz.
now! enjoy a few photos from this weekend – rockin’ a green suede skirt from h&m and my top is from zara. they’re both pretty old so i’m not sure you can find the exact ones but possibly something similar.
there’s also a few cute pics of kylo!
