Two Thousand & Eighteen

Happy New Year! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday and are ready to take 2018 on by storm. While 2017 was one for the books — for both good and bad — I am definitely ready to leave it behind and look forward to a bright new year.

While I pretty much never set “New Year’s Resolutions” for myself, I do always head into the new year with a list of goals and some quotes that I strive to live by. It just works best for me that way, and I almost think of it as more of a mood board than anything else. That being said, I wanted to share that with you today, and maybe it will even inspire you to make your own list of non-revolutions for the new year. Even if you don’t share it with anyone, I encourage you to create it for yourself. It’s always super interesting to look back on previous year’s lists and reflect on them — you get the chance to see how far you’ve come, in addition to what you still need/want to work on for yourself. Anyways here’s mine for this new year, if you’re interested:

  1. Relentlessly follow my dreams to turn them into realities.
  2. Continue pursuing a lifestyle centered around wellness and happiness. This includes meditating every day — without exception.
  3. Keep booking plane tickets. Maybe even book a one-way.
  4. Don’t stop fighting for what I believe in. #resist
  5. “Worrying will never change the outcome.”
  6. “Everything you can imagine is real.”
  7. “What you seek is seeking you.”
  8. “It’s not what happens; it’s how you handle it.”
  9. “Make every day count.”
  10. “Be the energy you want to attract.”

In honor of the new year, I also wanted to share some highlights from 2017. I posted these to my Instagram Story, and thought they summed up the year pretty well.

I hope this inspires you to create your very own mood board for the new year. I would love to hear all about your peaks and pits from 2017, along with your big plans for 2018.

The best is yet to come. xx
