I’m a huge resolutions and goal junkie. With the turn of every new year I spend countless hours thinking about what I really want to focus on the coming year [and by that I mean the first 10 days of January] and evaluate what’s working and what’s not working currently.
While I absolutely loved 2015, when I think about it overall one word comes to mind over and over again – unbalanced. With managing three different jobs, a husband, a social life, sleeping, and everything else in between it felt like I was both running on empty and always behind for the majority of the year. While I know a perfect balance is never attainable, it is one thing that I hope to focus on more in 2016. It’s the whole learning how to say no thing that screws me over every time, I love the yes word. A lot. Aside from focusing on balance I’ve got a few [like 100] more things I’m hoping to do/accomplish. Because I don’t want to forget them come February, I’m publishing it here. Somebody, anybody hold me accountable. Thank you.
+ go to church more times than not [we made it there yesterday! winning!]
+ workout 10,000 minutes in 2016 [the thought alone makes me sweat – 30 minutes down, only 9,970 to go!]
+ run a 10k with my martini club [on the calendar for June! lets do this!]
+ eat less crap and more salads [starting tomorrow obviously]
+ have something on the calendar to look forward to every month – from fun events with friends, to getaways, to date nights, etc. [because you can never plan enough when it comes to fun!]
+ travel somewhere awesome that we’ve never been before [thinking October for our 10 year anniversary – suggestions welcome!]
For a lipstick virgin, these Burt’s Bees lipsticks have been the perfect tool to get me on my lipstick a-game. They seriously feel so good on – you have to try them as I promise you won’t be disappointed. Burt’s Bees does it again, bless them.
+ watch every episode of the bachelor religiously [being that there’s a slim chance I could be in the background during one of the episodes, this is very important I’m tuned in at all times]
+ read a book every month [fitting because of the book club that I’ve been in for the past couple of years. It’s never too late to start participating in more than just drinking the wine at our monthly get-togethers!]
+ experiment more [try testing out different revenue streams, start a new weekly or monthly series – thinking #liyonadime where I show off my latest inexpensive fashion finds, and other good stuff!]
+ completely new design [even with all of that lipstick i’m ready for a face lift!]
+ infuse more personal life into this space [get back to the funny, real every day random stories – get a little more crazy again!]
+ get organized and a handle on things – personally turn to a personal assistant for help [i’m currently only 900 emails behind. oops.]
What’s one of your goals or resolutions for the year? Please tell me your’s involves lipstick too 😉
