2018: whats hot? whats not?

Well hello readers! Its been a hot minute since I have updated this blog of mine. In fact.. I haven’t blogged since LAST YEAR… ba dum tss!!

Haha anyways, so instead of making the typical “here are my new years resolutions” post, I decided to jazz it up a bit. Im calling it my hots and nots list! Basically it will be a confined list of things that will be present in 2018 for me and things that will not. The hots are things I would like to do, and the nots is kinda a “stop doing it” type of list. I hope you enjoy these, as I put some thought into them. If you would like to share your personal resolutions, I would love to hear them, comment them!

Enjoy 🙂

What’s hot?

I will….

  • stop procrastinating
  • improve my concentration and mental skills
  • meet new people
  • become more confident
  • take risks
  • learn how to love myself
  • become more active
  • maintain constant happiness
  • read more
  • start saving more money
  • adopt a cute pet
  • learn how to turn my hobbies into a career
  • face my fears and insecurities
  • stick to the healthy habits I have established
  • start putting myself before others when needed
  • be myself, and love who I am

Whats not? 

I will stop…

  • making excuses
  • feeling guilty for things that are not my fault
  • overcommitting
  • acting like “no” is a dirty word
  • pouring myself into people who can’t reciprocate
  • complaining about what I don’t want to do, until I can do better
  • confusing what I “want” and what I “need”
  • listening to other’s opinions of me
  • forgetting my self worth
  • comparing myself to others
  • sweating the small stuff
  • trying to please everyone
  • letting other people’s words define me

New years resolutions are tricky because its something we all say we will stick to but many of us fail. This year is going to be a year of change for me as well as a year of growth. I am truly going to work on bettering myself and become the person I dream of being. With that being said, I hope all of you stick to your own resolutions and have a year filled with joy and love. Thanks for reading. Happy New Year!

xoxo, laurel
