2016 is upon us. I wasn’t going to do a year end post, but I’ve enjoyed reading so many of my favourite bloggers best of 2015 posts and their resolutions for the upcoming year which made me want to start thinking about my 2016!
One of my favourite posts I shared in 2015 with you lovely readers was about feeling overwhelmed and having to let things go (read it here). I’ve been thinking a lot since writing that post about how I stress too much about the little things, instead of what really matters in life- people. 2016 is going to be the year of KISS for me, Keep It Simple Sweetheart. I know the typical acronym uses the word stupid, but there is no reason for the sort of negative self depreciation, sweetheart is a much better option! I’m not going to beat myself up when things get done a day late, or I forget to do a task, or I don’t get all the errands done. 2016 is about spending quality time with those I love, and taking time to focus on my inner joy and peace. I’m still brainstorming about what I want out of 2016, but here are my starting goals for the New Year:
1: Put people first: Take a friend for coffee at least 1x a week.
2: Inner and outer health- yoga at least 2x a week.
3: My personal happiness: Blog at least 3x a week.
4: For personal growth: Read more books! (Suggestions welcome, I’m putting a list together!)
I’m all about starting things when one thinks about them, instead of waiting a day or two. So here it goes: These pictures are from a photoshoot I did a while ago, but I couldn’t narrow down the pics for a post so I posted one on Instagram and put the rest away. This week I decided I don’t need to share a ton of them, or spend hours editing- these are the ones I like and showcase the scarf and acessories like I wanted to! Easy peasy lemon squeazy.
Here’s to taking life one day at a time, putting people before anythings else, and taking time one’s self. I wish you all the best in 2016, may it be full of love, joy, and laughter.
