New Year's Goals

This isn't a post about resolutions rather a post about what I want to do this year. The commitments that you make to yourself are important and should be honored all year long, not just at the turn of a new year but that being said there is something nice about putting your goals down in writing so you can refer back to what you'd set out to do because if you're anything like me, well, you forget a lot of things. So the things I want to do, in no particular order, are as follows:

Avoid Over Committing Myself: I do it all the time. I have a hard time saying no to people, invitations and I often am tired at the end of the day. I don't need to do it all and if I am more mindful of how I am spending my time, I will have more time to do what I want to do, which is to work on my handbags.

Ask for Advice: I do not know everything. I don't claim to. I often consider myself smart but there are a lot of times that I just need to know what others' opinions are on things. Instead of keeping my trap shut, I am going to reach out to the crazy talented and friendly people that I surround myself with. These people will help me, I just know it, and their advice will be super valuable.

Take Advice: Asking for advice is one thing but taking it is completely another. I need to learn from others in order to grow and I am all about personal growth this year and forever!

Collaborate with Honest and Worthy People + Brands: This blog is important to me but I am not going to sell my soul down the river just for some product samples. I am going to be very mindful of my relationships this year. Are they good people? Do I like what they are doing? Do they align with my values? Can we provide each other with a mutual beneficial relationship? All these are questions I will be asking myself.

Do More Yoga: I just feel good on the mat. I need to make this a priority so that I can focus my mind.

Use my Real Camera More: We paid a nice chunk of change for this thing and I even bought a tripod so it's on this year, Canon Rebel!

Be Healthy without Stressing: This one is important because I am not about to "let myself go" but I am kind of sick of stressing about how I look in skinny jeans or why I have to wear bras with thick straps (because my boobs are so big). I am what I am and while I would love to be smaller, I need to focus on just being healthy and mindful.

Make Handbags: I want to make handbags. There, I said it. I put it on my blog. I took a class the Summer before #PropahToddlah came along and it's been jangling around in my mind ever since. I want to make them and I want people to use them. More on this to come, but I want to make this happen for me no matter how long the process is going to be.

See Celine Dion in Vegas: Her residency ends in June. I have Brandon almost convinced that we can make a long weekend of it. I will make this happen this year.

What do you want to make happen this year? Do you have a resolutions post?
