Happy New Year! Welcome to Mixed Hues, my lil corner of the world. This is my very first post, and for reading it, you have received my eternal love and friendship.
If you haven’t already, get to me know a bit better over here. Otherwise, let’s hop right in!
Last night was December 31, 2016, aka the end of one year, and the beginning of another! As such, new year’s resolutions were made to be broken once again.
Personally, I’ve always found new year’s resolutions kind of silly. If you want to do something, why wait until January 1 to do it? Why not just do it the instant you decide you want to? If you want to get fit, get a gym membership that same week or create your own at-home plan to make that happen. Don’t be lazy. Just do it! (nike!)
After all, January 1 isn’t some magical date on which everything you once wanted to do suddenly becomes achievable. If you really want to do something, then set goals to make that happen right away. Don’t make excuses.
That said, it’s still great to set goals at any time of the year. I still have my own “resolutions” every year, although most of the time, these resolutions are necessarily goals I set just for the new year; rather, they’re goals I’ve had in the past that I intend to continue pursuing, or things I need to continue to improve upon.
So what are my goals for 2017?
Of course, I decided awhile back that I wanted to start blogging, so I set January 1, 2017 as my launch date and worked to create what you see here. So here I am in 2017 with my first ever blog post!
Beyond that, I have some specific things to do in the coming year:
- I want to diversify my photography,
- include more OOTD pics and flatlays in my Instagram,
- do live videos on Instagram,
- find a better theme for my blog that isn’t $$$$,
- connect with other bloggers,
- improve my GPA,
- take better care of my body,
- make fewer but more meaningful clothing purchases,
- and, of course, continue dismantling the patriarchy.
It’s a bit lengthy, but I suppose if I kept going and listed everything, I’d never finish that list. After all, there’s always something I can do better.
What about you? Comment below with your own New Year’s resolutions, and let me know your thoughts on resolutions in general, too! Also, if you have your own blog, please drop it in the comments! I’d love to connect with y’all, especially now that mine is officially up!
Well, that’s it! Thanks so much for popping in and giving this a read! It means so much, especially since this is my first post. Please let me know your thoughts! What can I fix already to make this better?
Sending y’all my very best vibes for 2017!
