Yesterday I showed you some of my favorite blog posts and happenings of 2013, and today we're starting fresh. This is the day to resolve to love better, serve more, give yourself more grace, travel someplace new, have hope, joy and faith. This is the day to start fresh, trust in God and know that you can do anything with His help. Today I'm celebrating the hope a new year brings with some fun gold balloons, a lot of confetti, a black dress and gold heels:
DETAILS | Dress: Anthropologie; Tights: Target; Heels: Macy's; Necklace: BaubleBar (sold out but they have so many pretty ones!); Bracelets: Kate Spade & Margaret Elizabeth
This year I made a two separate lists of goals; personal and business. I always make a few goals, but never am one to make lofty statements and resolutions I know won't happen. Like going to the gym everyday... if you know me, you know that ain't happening! Each year I try to focus on a few things, words or overarching goals for myself, while realizing I might slip up. My biggest hope is just to do what God is calling me to and live fully, but because it's January 1st, I'll share a few of my goals with you. Sometimes it helps to get them out on paper (or on the internet, in this case...) so you have some accountability. Here we go...
Be more patient. Be intentional in time spent and invested in close friends and family. Read the Bible every day and grow in my relationship with God. Live a more healthy lifestyle by drinking more green smoothies, eating fruits and veggies more often, working out at least 2 times a week (this is a stretch!), and drinking water. Choose joy daily. Kick anxiety to the curb by trusting more fully in God and obeying His plan. Serve people and volunteer in the community. Plan creative dates for my boyfriend. Go somewhere I haven't been before. Continue writing down things I'm thankful for.
Continue stretching myself creatively. Learn from those ahead of me. Help young girls develop a passion for design. Teach. Develop a business venture with one of my close friends (more on this soon hopefully!) Be more organized and learn the "business" side of my business more. This will include buying more filing cabinets ;) Grow my business. Cultivate a community of passionate people and inspire others. Have my interior design work published.
What are some of your personal and business related goals? I'd love to hear them! Happy 2014!!!
