It’s been awhile since I wrote anything here on the blog….
… is how I always start any blogpost I’ve been writing lately. After a year of having an on and off love affair with the blog, I’ve had enough time to decide on whether I should hang my blogging coat for good and just continue on with pouring my heart and soul for the business, my social media account (aka Instagram account) and our vlog. What I realized though that maybe the reason for feeling lost these past few years was because I’ve let go of what really made me love my job in the first place – an outlet and a coping mechanism with whatever life throws at me. With that being said, here’s my first goal for the new year:
Write more. Just like how it used to be. Write when I’m happy, in doubt, sad, nervous, just about anything I’m feeling at that certain moment. I used to be so candid online and I know that’s why you and I started to become friends and I want to bring back the good ol days of me writing like noone’s reading.
Be more mindful of my emotions. I’m an Aries, it’s natural for me to be very emotional. I always think with my heart and never with my brain. I dwell on my emotions too much that sometimes they get in the way of my productivity and relationships. This 2019, I want to be able to control them more and develop this inner filter when it comes to what should bother me and what I should let go.
To stop overthinking. I’ve always been the type of person to think about what’s next and sometimes it makes me miss out on all the blessings happening right in front of me. It’s one of my bad habits to break.
To finally check off Maldives, South Africa, Turkey and Dubai off my bucketlist! Last year, my sister and I decided to set our travel bucket list aside to focus on building our brand, VV & Co. We said no to a couple of travel opportunities last year and this 2019, we still want to pour our time and effort on the brand but we want to find a balance and still cross those things off our bucket list. How to do everything at the same time???? lol
To be healthier. I used to always include “To Lose Weight” on my goals year after year but I’ve reached a point in my life where I want to be healthier instead of losing weight. I’m only 25 but I already have a back, a knee and a gastro problem. It took me along time to admit it but it was because of my years and years of vanity and trying to lose weight that I developed all those. I ran the wrong way in the hopes of shedding a few pounds mid last year and I don’t eat before drinking cups of coffee in the hopes of surviving through the day without in taking calories. So I want that idea of weight out of my head and focus on a healthier me this 2019! :)
To make VV&Co grow! We never thought that we’d get the response we did on our first month and we want to continue the streak :) We want to expand our product line this year. We want to focus on products that you love at prices you love! :)
Lastly, to act like my age. I’m only 25 and I have to stop being so hard on myself. I’ve been working for almost 10 years now and I’ve done nothing but work on my goals since. While I’ve been having so much fun since and doors I never even thought exisited have been opened, I have to remind myself not to take life so seriously and I don’t have to be in a rush! I feel like I’m always in a hurry to grow up, to always move on to the next step in life. I’m on my last year as a mid 20-er? hehe and I have forever to be a serious adult. :P
What are your goals this 2019? Would love to read about them below <3
