As the year comes to an end and a new one approaches, people usually reflect on their lives. We think about our successes and our failures of the previous year. More importantly, we know that the new year is a fresh start and the possibilities are endless! While you think about your past year it’s important to remember every amazing moment. As you remember the positive portions of your year, don’t kick the negatives under the rug! Reflect on your failures and find a way to learn from them! Isn’t that the whole point of a New Year’s Resolution? The point is to make goals, plans, and take complete control of this fresh year!
2015 was an amazing year for me! I got married to a man I never thought was possible of existing. We both landed our career jobs this year. We bought a house together which we are (still) in the process of renovating! (Exciting stuff). We bought a new car. My heart is so full of love after the birth of my new nephew who I am proud to be the God Mother of! The first week in December, we rescued an 8 week old puppy that we named Archie! Lastly, my husband and I ended the year in Chicago visiting my family for the holidays. What a freaking year!! How could 2016 top all of that?!
I am currently watching Gossip Girl as I write this New Year’s post. You should know by now that GG is my guilty pleasure that I cannot get enough of! Blair Waldorf is my homegirl and actually says some well-put quotes throughout the series! (Not to mention her one-liners are hilarious).
My Favorite Blair Waldorf Quotes That Fit Perfectly For The New Year!
1. “Destiny is for losers. It’s just a stupid excuse to wait for things to happen instead of making them happen.”
2. “Nothing is holding me back anymore. I know what I want, and I am going to get it!”
3. “Have a little faith, and if that doesn’t work, have a lot of mimosas!”
(Okay so, I totally thought the last one was just funny! We can ALWAYS use some mimosas!)
Here’s my advice + what I plan to do as well. Sit down and think about your life this past year, as I will my own. Write a list of things reflecting on the past year and a list to begin a new one!
Biggest failure (Don’t get down on yourself)
A new goal to accomplish
Plan to make new memories
Ways to learn from last years failures
Something to do that betters your life
Mapping out your plans and goals for the new year helps you stay on track! Get a planner or notebook, it will totally make accomplishing your goals that much easier! My favorite planners are by Kate Spade HERE, HERE, and HERE!
In today’s society, if we don’t see results instantly, we give up. Keep in mind anything worth having takes time and effort, don’t give up! This is the perfect time to reevaluate the direction you want your life to go and it can only go up from there! I promise you, ITS WORTH IT!
What does the New Year mean for Desire And Attire? I have decided to enter a new blog environment! Beauty is definitely my passion which will remain the focus of my page, but this year I plan to challenge myself and broaden my horizon to keep things interesting! I plan to incorporate so many more topics that are not beauty related.
What are some of your New Year’s Resolutions?!
