I’ll be honest, I usually don’t make New Year’s resolutions. I’ve always found them cheesy and feel like no one actually sticks to them. However, there are several changes that I know I’ve needed to make in my life for a while, so I thought now is the perfect time!

  • Worry less about what others think of me. This is something I’ve struggled with my entire life, so now having a blog (where thousands of people have an opinion about you all the time) has definitely been challenging. I just have to remember that I’m never going to please everyone, no matter how hard I try.
  • Learn how to cook! Okay, this is super embarrassing, but I do not know how to cook AT ALL. I can’t tell you the last time I went a grocery store. I know that eating out all the time is very unhealthy, so I really want to make this change. If you have any easy recipes that you love, feel free to send them my way!
  • Step out of my comfort zone more: in life, in fashion, and in relationships. Today’s outfit is actually my first step in accomplishing this goal! I immediately fell in love with these gold pants when I saw them, but thought “they’re cute, but I could never pull them off”! I have to stop thinking like that and just take more risks.
  • Be more organized/procrastinate less. Y’all, I am the WORST at staying organized and I hate that about myself! I’m also very bad at procrastinating, which causes a lot of stress in my life. Basically I need to be way more on top of my sh*t in 2018!!
  • Continue working out on a daily basis. I actually started working out regularly in the beginning of 2017, and it has made such a difference in my life! I will be doing a post soon on Orange Theory Fitness, so stay tuned!
  • Read the bible more. Sometimes I think I have a good relationship with Christ because I talk to him all the time and listen to worship music, but the truth is I need to spend WAY more time in his word. “So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ” Romans 10:17.

I hope everyone has a wonderful start to 2018!!!

    You are the cutest. Thanks for sharing that! One thing that has helped me be more consistent with my Bible reading is either reading the Bible or the Bible app during the time I am eating breakfast. It was hard at first because your inclination is to check your social media or your emails on your phone, but I had to push myself to break that habit and use that time where I am actually sitting down to focus on the Word instead. Good luck with all your resolutions in 2018!
