Hey everyone! I am sure most of y’all were expecting some New Year post so here it is! Wow, what an incredible year 2017 was. It was a year of growth and basically just finding myself. Of course I started my blog in 2017. I didn’t establish it just to talk about fun outfits and yummy recipes. Through this journey I have learned so much about myself and about this world. And to be honest, it’s been great. Through this next year, I really just want to maintain this healthy lifestyle that I am currently living but just accentuate it. I really do believe I am on he right path and I will continue to follow it. I find it really important to start this new year on the right foot. Remember the things that make you happy and keep those with you. Always remember that gratitude can only be earned through hard work, perseverance, and of course, heart. Let yourself feel your own emotions. Never hold back. Let yourself go from time to time. Live in the moment. I know these are things you have heard several times but they wouldn’t be repeated if they weren’t true. In 2018, allow yourself to explore. Find a balance in your life. Find a routine that is healthy and that doesn’t bring stress to your mind. Don’t just set goals at the beginning of the year and then be done. Set goals everyday. I just want to add, I know it sounds like I am directing these things towards you all but these are also things that I constantly will be reminding myself. Lastly, I want everyone to be themselves. I know guys, that is basically the biggest cliche ever but I really do love it. The time that we have on this earth is not very long. Own it. Own your opinions. Never let anybody tell you that you aren’t good enough. Every single person on this planet has a purpose. You weren’t put on this earth to be someone else. You were put on this earth to bring a new kind to this world. So, stay true to who you are. Every person is so special in there own way so just embrace it. I hope everyone remembers that and I give everyone the best of luck for this new year!
