It’s 2018 y’all!!! I’m going into the new year with a positive mindset, a clear head, and thanking God for blessing me in 2017. Every year I try to do better than the year before. 2017 was about me starting my foundation and 2018 will be me building my house. I want to achieve some goals this year that I was too afraid to do in the past. I’m not into resolutions but I am all about goal setting. Here are three goals I am trying to achieve in 2018:
One goal I want to achieve is to go back to living a healthy lifestyle of mind, body and soul. Towards the end of the year, I defiantly fell off with this. I had been eating bad, I wasn’t working out, I was stressed and tired all the time. I feel like I was just going through the motions instead of living life. It’s starting to show on me now that I don’t have my old, snatched waist. I’m also so tired at work that I haven’t been able to work on my blog. I want to get back to the old me that worked out, blogged, worked and still had energy to see my friends. A part of me doesn't know how I did it. I now know that it starts with how I feel inside. My best friend is always talking about how mediating and yoga helps her in the morning. Since that seems to work for her and it interests me, that’s what I will start out with.
The second goal I want to achieve this year is focusing on my career. This scares me because it might mean that I end up having to move to New York or California. And I am not sure if I’m ready to make that move. DC is starting to feel like home to me and I’m gaining more friends and contacts here. I’m not sure if I’m ready to leave it but I will not be able to achieve my career goals if I stay. I am no longer going to settle for what I want in my career. I am going for it hard this year and I am positive God will get me to my destination.
The last goal I’ll be sharing is an internal goal and that’s not caring what people think. I am a Virgo so we over analyze everything. Often times I become quiet just so I can read other people’s reactions. So when I post something, I constantly think how others will view me. It could be as small as a curse word. I want to be more of myself so people can get to know the real Tiffany and not just Stylebytiff. To get to know the real me, I will post more Insta stories of me talking. I will continue to be the honest me but still professional.
I have a few more goals I am trying to achieve this year. My cousin said it’s best to write them down so that I can hold myself more accountable. Every few months I can go back to it and see if I am closer to reaching my goals. I am honestly so blessed and happy to be in a good place even though it took a while to get here. I hope my goals help you think about your own personal goals. I pray we all get there by the end of the year. As always it’s always Styledbytiff.
