My New Year’s Resolutions for 2017!


I have decided on my New Year’s Resolutions for 2017! They aren’t set in stone but I’m going to attempt to accomplish all of these during the year.

My list!

  1. Be BRAVE! This is my first and main goal. If nothing else gets done, then I want to be brave this year. I want to do more things that scare me or make me hesitate at first and to do things that I’ve wanted to do for a long time. Anxiety has always been a problem for me and while I know that it may continue to bother me, I don’t want it to control me anymore. Brave is also going to be my word for the year in my bullet journal. Bullet journaling is an idea I’m trying out with a spiral notebook even though it is usually done in nicer notebooks.
  2. Get my license. This one goes with #1. I’m going to get my license and stop letting fear get in my way.
  3. Savor my time with my daughter. This one is self-explanatory. Time goes by so fast and my sweet baby girl is already almost four months old! I want to make the most of my time with her, especially during her first year.
  4. Relearn to crochet. I plan on getting some crochet hooks and learning how to crochet. I always see beautiful crocheted pieces online and I want to learn to do that too.
  5. Write, write, write! I’m going to work on blogging more often, edit books I have written and write and publish more. I miss writing and creating worlds and stories, though I don’t miss the editing portion!
  6. Become a better photographer. I love taking pictures and I’m hoping to one day become good enough to use it as a side job but I need to be better at taking pictures first and then get a different camera, preferably a DSLR. The little point and shoot we have doesn’t take great every day pictures, let alone professional ones. My hubby says his phone camera takes better pictures! Lol!
  7. Do yoga at least 3 times a week. I miss doing yoga every day but I’m going to shoot for at least 3x a week for now. It was always so relaxing for me and incredibly enjoyable. Which brings me to my next one…
  8. Lose weight! I have a personal goal that I want to get to and I’m hoping to get there this year by eating better/ less and exercising.
  9. Do 15 minutes of Spanish at least 3 times a week also. I haven’t done any Spanish before my baby girl was born and I was getting pretty good.
  10. Go green…ish.  I want to use less and waste less by reducing, reusing, and recycling.


My list is pretty long but I’m going to do my best and if I can’t quite accomplish them all, then that will be ok. I don’t plan on stressing myself out to the point of frustration and exhaustion to get these things done because I feel like setting resolutions is a way of bettering yourself. You can’t better yourself if you’re stressed out all of the time.
