2 0 1 7

Hello my friends! It is officially 2017 and I can't wait to see what is in store for the next 365 days. I haven't posted in awhile and I apologize. So much has happened to me in the last few months and I think it will take a few posts for me to get it all out there. I am excited to share where I am and my plans for the future. 

I love the start of the new year. It is like a clean slate and a second chance. There are so many possibilities and opportunities that pop up along the way. I have some good resolutions this year and want to share them with you. I love talking about my goals on this blog because I feel it keeps me accountable. 

Here are the things I would like to accomplish in 2017...

1. Get Healthy

If you guys know me, you know that this is always one of my resolutions. I am pretty good about exercising because it relieves stress, but my eating habits are atrocious. This year I would like to educate myself on healthy foods that will keep me energized and sustain my body. 

2. Don't Worry, Be Happy 

This one is easier said than done for me. I am a worrier through and through. I recently started seeing a therapist for my anxiety and it has really helped. This year I would like to focus more on what I do have as opposed to what I don't have. I am so extremely blessed and there is no sense in worrying about things I can't control. 

3. Find a Job 

I think this is the resolution I am most concerned about. I graduated from Purdue about two weeks ago and I have no idea where I should go from here. I want to be happy and I am willing to move wherever life takes me. Any tips on how to start adulting would be greatly appreciated. :)

4. Be Creative 

Something that helps with my anxiety is finding a creative outlet. These outlets could be going for a walk, coloring, blogging or taking pictures. In 2017 I want to find more ways to be creative. I want to step outside of my comfort zone and find new passions. 

5. Kill em with Kindness 

This should always be a resolution. I try my hardest to be a genuinely nice person, but I am not perfect and sometimes I get so wrapped up in my own life that I forget about others. This year I would like to work on loving and encouraging people. Whether it is my closest friend or a stranger on the street, I want to spread the love!!

6. Forget the Phone 

Lately I have been obsessed with my phone. Like any 20-something I love checking social media and seeing what everyone is up to. However, I have noticed it has taken away from my relationships with the people right in front of me. In 2017, I want to get on my phone less. Instead of texting friends and family I would like to see them and have a good old fashioned conversation!

7. No Boys Allowed 

I hate that this is even one of my resolutions, but honestly it needs to be said. Last year I was very concerned with finding someone special. I was always looking for the next guy to talk to and it was exhausting. This year I want to stop looking. I want to be happily single and ready to seize every single day. 

Those were some of my resolutions for this fabulous new year. To be honest, 2016 was very difficult for me and I have hope that 2017 will make up for it. I think it is going to be the best year yet :)

I would love to hear about some of your goals for 2017 in the comments below. 

Have a glorious day!
