Happy New Years friends! As I do every year and as cliche, as it is, I'm sharing my goals, plans, and thoughts for the new year. I'm hoping to make this year "the best one yet" and go into it with a different mindset than I have done so in previous years.

It's crazy to think it's that time again to welcome a new year. I've always been super sad about starting a new year because I had always hate changes, accepting the fact that we're getting older, etc. etc. But, I wanted to change that this year. 

I've realized, we're going to get older no matter what. Time is going to continue to tick away no matter what. Life is going to happen, no matter what. So why not enjoy it as it comes? 

I know, it's taken me 22 years to accept and realize that.

So with that, I'm welcoming 2018 with open arms. 

In 2018 I want to start making the most out of my time.

I am the first person to admit that I complain all the time that I don't have time to do everything I need to do when in reality I have more time than I think. I get into a rut that thinking that my day is over when I get out of work at 7:30 when in reality I still have a solid 3 hours to get stuff done before I begin to wind down for the night. 

Or I can have an extra hour to knock some things off of my todo list every morning instead of scrolling through my phone. Schedule things ahead of time, plan for when it gets busy, do things more efficiently... I just want to be mindful of how I'm using my time and start making the most of it. 

In 2018 I want to take better care of my body. 

What's a new year's post without mentioning something about fitness/health? In previous years I've always made it a goal to workout regularly and eat healthily, but this year I want to just do more than that.

I've always had this on and off relationship with food where I super duper clean and healthy for a solid two weeks and then binge on every single dessert known to man a few days later. Without getting too deep into my relationship with food and my eating habits (because that's a completely different story for another day), I just want to leave it as I want to change my mindset and think of food as more as fuel and energy for yourself. This is not to say I'm going to give up on my Chic Fil A french fries and Ben and Jerry's ice cream, but I want to be more mindful of what I am putting in my body. 

In 2018 I want to stop posting half a** content. 

Pretty sure I had a similar goal last year, but I really want to crack down on it this year. I know a lot of tips and advice for starting a blog / being successful / etc. always states that you need to be consistent and stick to a posting schedule, etc. 

I know there are days where I just have a complete brain block on what to write/ post and end up posting something that I'm not 100% proud of just for the sake to stick on schedule. That needs to stop. 

I want everything I publish to be something I'm excited about and if that means only having one post go up that week because I didn't have time to put together everything to make it great, then I only have one post up that week. 

On another note of posting content.

I've always been scared to post/try new things because in the back of my head I've always been scared of what other people think. I want to step outside of my comfort zone this year and be a little bit more vulnerable and try new things. I've been talking to RJ for about a year now how I want to incorporate video into blogging and this year just may be the year it happens. So here's to new things. 

And lastly,

In 2018 I want to spend more time with friends/family/people. 

Too often I get stuck in a rut of just wanting to be alone and watch YouTube videos all night. A relaxing night in is a great an all, but when that's what you do 99% of the time, it gets old... and lonely. I want to make it an effort to spend more time with those who mean the most to me and step out of my comfort zone to meet new people. I mean, binge-watching videos of other people's lives will always be there for you to watch later, spending time with loved ones won't always last forever. 

So there it is. My plans and goals for the upcoming year! Here's to making new memories, working hard and crushing our goals in 2018. I hope you all have a wonderful new year and let me know down below what you're looking forward to! As always, thank you for reading!
