Not too long ago I found myself making a list on my iPhone about everything I needed to achieve in 2017. In all honesty, 2016 wasn’t terrible but it wasn’t remarkable either. I spent most the year trying to find my path and forcing pieces of my life together at times that weren’t meant to be. Towards the end of the year I started to take a step back and soon, miraculous things began to fall together.
In case you’re wondering where I’ve been, I can explain… I got a full time job and have officially started adulting. It’s been hard trying to balance uploading meaningful content during such a transitional stage in my life, so I figured I’d start getting more personal.
Going forward I’ll be recapping my months where I share what I’ve been up to, some goals I want to conquer for the next month and more. So, let’s kick off 2017 shall we?
January was eventful and quite the rollercoaster. I turned another year older on January 8th, celebrated it with the boyfriend and a ton of my close friends. I spent this weekend at the Trump Toronto hotel where I was treated to breakfast in bed and an overall luxurious staycation.
On that same day, this blog turned two years old! That weekend I couldn’t stop reflecting on how much my content has changed and how amazing it’s been to watch my audience grow. I have a few things planned so I’m excited to share more with you guys, so be sure to stay tuned!
Like everyone else I made a ton of resolutions for the New Year and last week I was able to cross off a big one off my list; I bought myself my first car! Truth be told, last year I had a fear of driving. I never saw myself as one to drive but I later learned I was limiting myself. With the extra push from my parents and my boyfriend, Justin, I got my license and now I’m completely mobile!
Goals for February
I have many hopes and dreams that I want to see come to life. Lately, it’s been difficult to find a way to achieve them however, I simply want to master being patient. I’ve learned that I cannot base my happiness off of my successes yet I should be basing it more on all the good around me, whether it be small or big. Practicing being patient is not only something I want to work on for next month but it’s a quality I want to obtain all year round.
Additionally, I want to finally start reading a few of the many books I was given over the holidays which include Nasty Galaxy by Sophia Amoruso and Cravings by Chrissy Teigen.
