The new year kicked off, and all I can think of are my 2018 resolutions for the year ahead.
Resolutions are incentives that help me to focus and achieve my personal and professional goals. Being a 24-year-old graduate and a hopeful dreamer can get tricky. I aspire to be an entrepreneur in the fashion and communications industry. I want to have my own business, travel and be the best version of myself.
I want it all, but I’m clueless at the same time. Sometimes, the first step is the most difficult to make. That’s why is key to maintain a plan or at least a draft of our goals/dreams/aspirations and stick to it.
These are my 2018 resolutions! And I plan to follow them!
Eat Better/Exercise More: Although these two activities have always been present in my life, I must admit that I left them aside once I started working full time. Saying that I don’t have time, and that I’m exhausted didn’t get me anywhere last year. So now, I’m determined to do meal prep every single Sunday and exercise 4 to 5 days per week. These kinds of habits will help me recover my strength and energy.
Self-care: More ME time! The last couple of months, I put myself on the background and payed more attention to others’ needs. From now on, I will have at least one day per week exclusively for me – my needs and my wishes will be the most important priority.
Spend Less/ Save More: We all know that financials are a must. Watching our expenses is essential to keep the budget right. Since now I am trying to build my empire, I want to save money, and I plan to do it by changing some habits: cook more, use Uber just when I really need to, use coupons when buying my groceries, etc. At the end of this month, I will let you know the result!
Be the best version of myself: Frequently, I will ask myself one question: Am I closer today from where I want to be tomorrow? If the answer is no, I will be able to notice that I’m out of track and get ready to recover the time lost. If the answer is yes, then I will need to keep going and update my 2018 plan accordingly.
I’m excited to put my list into practice!
