Goals for 2015

When a new year comes around, I love creating resolutions as motivation to become a better person and make the most of my life. I even plan on printing out my goals and hanging them up in my room as a constant reminder!

one // me
develop a healthy lifestyle: Over the summer, I went to the gym almost every single day, ate a ton of healthy food, and pretty much inhaled fruit water. But when school started and my gym membership expired, I got out of those healthy habits because I simply did not have the time to renew my membership and stay on track with the right foods. As an 18th birthday present, my parents are renewing my gym membership for me. I am going to go to the gym whenever I can, drink lots of water, and be more conscious about the foods I eat.

stay organized: For about the past month, I have neglected using my agenda and to-do list notebook. This has sort of become a problem because those two items are vital to my life; they help to keep me focused and on track. I am going to make sure that I always use these in order to make life a little bit easier for me! I got a new planner and desk calendar to use, which I'm super excited about.

remain positive: The older I have gotten, the more positive I have gotten. I rarely ever get mad or upset, and it takes a lot for me to get mad. I always tend to look on the bright side of things and keep an open mind. I have realized that life doesn't always work out the way you want it to, but you should still keep smiling and staying positive. I am going to continue my positivity into 2015.

two // blog
post more: With the combination of senior year, college searching, and my business, I have failed to update my blog. I really haven't posted in over two months when I used to post every single day. I may not be able to start posting every day again right away, but I am going to make sure to post more often.

write snail mail: I have received tons of snail mail from my fabulous blogger gals, but I have been so busy that I don't end up writing back until a month later! I am going to make sure to write back as quickly as possible and find more lovely people to write to. Plus it gives me an excuse to buy super cute stationery ;)

utilize social media: I have also neglected my blog's Twitter, Facebook page, and Instagram. I am going to use those more often in order to connect with my readers and other bloggers. I am definitely going to focus on taking prettier Instagram pictures - so many bloggers have the most fabulous Instagram pictures and I am super jealous!

master Photoshop: I am also jealous of the bloggers who have amazing graphics for their blog. I have always wanted to try the free trial of Photoshop to see if I would like it, but I have not had the time to do so. I am going to teach myself how to use Photoshop in order to improve the quality of my blog. This will also help my business!

three // business
get more clients: I am definitely hoping to expand my business, which can be done by getting more clients. I plan on attending major networking events to meet potential clients and putting myself out there on social media.

add more knowledge: Although I do know a lot about social media, there is always more to learn! I am going to research various social media platforms and how to efficiently use them in order to offer more insight to my clients.

offer more services: Another thing that is involved with expanding my business is offering more services. I have some awesome ideas in mind of what I can add to my business, so be sure to keep an eye out!

four // school
pick best college: I have to enroll in a college by May 1, 2015. Out of all of the colleges I get accepted to, I am going to make sure to choose the one that is the best fit for me.

study more: I will admit that I don't study as much as I used to because I realized that studying all the time added to my stress. Although I don't need to spend all of my time studying, I should set aside more time to study in order to keep doing well in school.

make the most of senior year: High school seriously flew by. Senior year has definitely been the best year of high school, and I want to make sure it stays that way. T also leaves for the army in less than six months (!!!), so it's super important to me that we both have a ton of fun before he has to leave.

I am really looking forward to getting started on these goals. I can't wait to see the success they will bring me in 2015!

What goals do you have for 2015?
