Happy New Year, y’all!
I can’t believe it’s already 2019 … it feels yesterday was 2009, which was ten years ago and I was still in middle school! I can’t even believe that were already in the third day of this year. Time seriously flies by!
I’m not gonna lie, I’m always nervous at the beginning of every New Year. While I’m excited about the opportunities and experiences to come, the unknown of a new year usually makes me feel a bit uneasy. I tend to overthink about the future way more than I should. I think too much about how I’m going to graduate in time, what’s going to happen to my family and friends, my future love life, my future career, accomplishing my dreams, etc. I think you get the point of what I’m saying. The future is scary!
Despite my worries; however, I’m going to work on not getting all caught up in what hasn’t happened yet. I’m going to let go of comparison, fear, self-doubt, insecurities and negative thoughts and instead put my focus on the present moment. It’s much better to have good memories to look back on rather than to worry about what’s going to happen next and not live in the present. God gives us all one life, and I want to live mine to the fullest. And I encourage you to do the same. After all, the new year is only a slight change in the calendar. There’s plenty of time to live in the moment and create new memories to forever cherish!
As far as my style goes, it ain’t changing any time soon. The picture above was actually taken before Christmas. I came down with a 24-hour flu on New Years Eve and New Years Day, so I wasn’t feeling good enough to post a cute NYE outfit. I’m just thankful that I wasn’t sick a week before! But honestly, I would still wear this outfit on NYE instead of a sparkly dress if I felt like it. It’s still chic and spunky. That’s what New Years is all about! I feel like these JustFab shoes are especially perfect to ring in the new year. I got these shoes when I collaborated with them in December for their boot season campaign. They’re so glam, and they go with every outfit. I walked into 2019 at the perfect time! Just like in the picture above … get it?
What are your goals for this year? Are you going to work on staying in the present moment like me or do you have other specific ideas in mind? Leave a comment down below and let me know!
