2017 Resolutions

Jan 5, 2017

I can't believe we are already 5 days into 2017! Like seriously, wasn't NYE like yesterday?! I feel like I'm a little late to the party getting my new year's resolutions out but you know what? I'm not going to worry about it! My theme for this year is going to be let it go! I'm usually very uptight and anxious but, I'm trying to just let go and not let things bother me. So if you see #letitgo you know what it means!

I have big plans- nope, goals- for 2017 and these goals are something that I will achieve! They are attainable and some things that I've wanted to do for years. This will be the year that I am a #goaldigger!

This IS the year that I:

Let things go and let God take over- I will NOT let anxiety rule my life!

Choose happiness when I have the option of pouting/sulking

Make healthier decisions when I have the choice- maybe choosing the salad over the burger

Move more tomorrow than I did today- no more just sitting on the couch all day doing whatever

Invest in myself and what I'm passionate about

Make lasting friendships and commit to them

Let go of anyone who makes me feel inferior or small

Seek counsel when I feel lost so I don't stay in a low place for too long

Be present with the ones I love and make them a priority

Rejoice in the small blessings/wins/things


Do I think I will be perfect? Oh no, never, but I am going to do my absolute best and I'm going to #ownit when I fail! If I can still laugh at myself then things are always looking up.

What are some of the goals that you want to reach in 2017? I would love to hear them and keep you on track if you help me too!

I also want to share my 2017 bucket list with y'all! I was able to accomplish quite a few things on my bucket list last year and I loved making one for this year. If you haven't made one yet I encourage you to quickly! It helps you plan your months out when you know you want to accomplish new or old (!) things. My bucket list is always growing but I choose things that I know are attainable for the year- like traveling to one or two places but not traveling across the world 6 times (even though I would LOVE to do that, Germany and Poland are calling my name)!
