Hello 2019~!

Tuesday, January 1, 2019

I can't believe it's 2019... already.

But then again how many of us are saying that this week?!

Every year for the last few years I've done {onelittleword} and for the last 2 years Bubba has chosen my word for me — this year he picked L E A R N as my word for 2019.

As new parents (I can't believe she'll be here in a few months! It's so crazy to think about!) this year we're going to do a lot of learning and I'm determined to not be one of those parents who let their newborn change their life as drastically as everyone says they will.

I've never been friends with the concept of sleep; to be honest I've probably gotten more sleep since BEING pregnant, despite all the discomforts than I've gotten naturally since 2004. Like my biggest excitement is the ability to fall asleep at night WITHOUT sleeping aids as I've been heavily dependent on them to get me to sleep since 2004. Me and sleep just haven't gotten along in a really long time.

In addition to being new parents I really want to get back into learning in general. I still need to learn the rest of French and I want to start learning Spanish. I want to relearn the social media world as well as how to make the most out of my blogging and getting back into graphic design. I want to learn how to bake. How to cook better meals. How to be a better version of myself.

There's much power in knowledge and I feel like the last few years I've been in a haze of just winging things; I want to go back to being that determined person with goals and intention.

I haven't put much thought into resolutions this year. I feel like the older you get the more you're not really sure what you want to achieve. I also feel like the older you get the more realistic you try to make your list and that's just not really fun in my opinion lol.

→ Read 36 books
→ Be more mindful
→ Take more OOTD photos/photos IN FRONT of the camera
→ Clean up the apartment
→ Purge things that don't serve me
→ Unfollow and distance from those who aren't positive
→ Blog twice a week
→ Post one video on YouTube a week
→ Discover more favorite products
→ Organize kitchen
→ Organize bedroom & closet
→ Play more video games
→ Hit VIB Rouge for Sephora
→ Start actively REVIEWING again
→ Fix up blog themes
→ Take a trip to Disney

Generally these are things I hope to accomplish within the year. I want to change my Instagram content; I want to spend more time IN FRONT of the camera. I also want to hit some sort of follower goal but I also don't really like the idea of that because then I feel rushed? Anxious? Worried? I don't really know what the word I'm looking for is. Maybe if I figure out a goal number I'll come back and edit it in here.

Meanwhile, here's a look at my past {onelittleword}!

Also, sorry in advanced for the end of the year post dump coming this week!
Do you do {onelittleword} or do you make resolutions?
