Happy New Year folks! I finalized my resolutions and goals for the new year and I’m excited to put them out there into the universe. Last year I was afraid to announce my goals to the public because “quitting my job” was my most significant goal (ever!) and I definitely didn’t want it to make its way back to the company I worked for. But this year? This year I can share my goals because I am FREE!
In years past I’ve made smaller personal resolutions. Two years ago I resolved to ‘wear mascara everyday’. It was actually a big change for me! I would put makeup on but just be too lazy to finish it off with mascara. Come to find out now that mascara is part of my daily makeup routine, I feel so much more confident! Last year I resolved to ‘wear lipstick everyday’. This one also seems silly, but again, lipstick was just not something I felt comfortable wearing. But now? Through the process I discovered 3 favorite lipsticks that I rotate on the daily that I love. I have identified the everyday lipstick color that I feel most comfortable wearing, not to mention my lips are less dry and stay hydrated!
For this year, I’ve categorized my resolutions and goals into three categories: personal, business, & home. Let’s get to it!
In 2019 I want to make a significant effort to spend more time with my mom and dad. Some of you may already know, both my parents are battling cancer. It’s not that I don’t spend time with them, I definitely do. It’s important to me that I shift my mindset to make sure my every day priorities include spending time with them.
Everyone sets a health and fitness goal for the new year, mine is to do 52 weeks of BBG! I just finished week 4 of BBG and while it is challenging, it’s also a program I feel I CAN commit to without feeling like I’ve set too big of a goal. I can do these workouts at home, it’s a 30 minute commitment 3 times a week. Very doable! Plus, it’s been a long time since I’ve been this sore, and it feels great.
My third and sorta lofty personal goal for 2019 is to travel somewhere that requires a passport. It’s been a long time since Antonio and I have gone somewhere exciting, hopefully we can make it happen.
My overall business goals are pretty straightforward: post more frequently (on the blog as well as Instagram), and to grow. Growth is the goal that covers all facets of my business: grow inventory, grow followers, grow sales, outgrow my home studio and into an office or warehouse, and maybe even grow to have a few full time employees. Wouldn’t that be something?!
Home Project Goals
I’m going to bullet point my 2019 home project goals, and dive into them in more detail at a later time. A couple of these projects are currently works in progress, while the others require a cash investment that we will be prioritizing this year (I’m looking at you HVAC!). The project I’ve recently been obsessing over is a kitchen refresh. I have come to terms that 2019 isn’t the year I will get a new kitchen (ha!) and the thought of living with the inherited chili pocket door and sunflower yellow cabinets for at least another year really bums me out. So I have a plan for a kitchen refresh and will share it with you in the coming weeks! Here are the 5 projects I hope to tackle in 2019:
- Finish our master suite bathroom
- Finish Mara’s big girl room
- Upgrade/re-work HVAC
- Kitchen refresh
- Get drawings completed for a home addition
2019 I’m ready for you!
