I’m all about making resolutions and stickin’ to my guns to achieve them! Each year, I try to focus on how I can make my life better – spiritually, physically and financially. I usually type them in my phone and write them on paper where I can see them daily! I don’t want to be part of the 29% of Americans who give up on resolutions at week two!
Spiritually – Here I want to focus on (more intentional) time with God! With that said, this year I really want to focus on clearing my mind, worshiping him and presenting him with my concerns. Each morning I choose to have quiet time with God over a cup of coffee. No morning is the same, by that I mean some mornings I have more time than others. No matter what the length of time or day of the week, I always want to make time for Him in 2017!
Physically – To catch you up, late in 2016 I started running. Something about going on a beach vacation started this trend. While I was not in any kind of shape to brag about, I did love the effects running had on my body! Not only did I like the way my clothes were fitting, but running improves not only your health but attitude as well! Running for me is a confidence booster and stress reliever, both of which I need! So in 2017, I plan to hit the gym or pavement at least 4 times a week!
Financially – Each year, the hubs and I incorporate a new savings plan! Sidenote: The hubs seriously called a budget meeting last week… ehh, I wasn’t too thrilled. But, I will say after seeing the numbers multiply over 12 months I felt better about things (well kinda, because THERE went my shopping budget)! Each of us are in different situations, but do a little research because I bet there is a savings plan out there that you can follow too! So in 2017 here’s to saving more and spending less!
Then there are plans to read more, eat better, complain less and overall just become a better ME!
So I’m sure you are wondering, what are my goals for TCE and this little space on the World Wide Web? Well here you go!
Produce more weekly content – Sounds easy peasy right?! Well, running this lil’ blog and working full time while still trying to live a social life gets hectic at times! But, I’ll keep my word and try my hardest to produce at least 3 posts a week for you all!
Grow – The intent of TCE is to celebrate life and style while documenting it along the way! So, in 2017 I want to share all things that I love and that inspire me – faith, family, fashion and travel! So be on the lookout for many inspiring posts to come! And travel posts… who doesn’t love to travel?!
Attend more (fashion / creative) events – While I do have one event already on the calendar for the end of February (check it out Thrive Conference), I’d like to get more involved on a monthly basis! I’m always up for learning new and exciting stuff! So whether it’s an in person conference or something via the web, I want to get involved! So friends, if you ever hear about an event please pass the information along to me as well! A huge event on my bucket list is to attend New York Fashion Week in the fall! Now, how fun does that sound!
Whew! That’s a lot 🙂 2017, please be good to me!
