Now that we’re a few days into 2020, I finally had time to stop and think about my resolutions for the new year! Like I mentioned on Stories, I hit such a holiday slump between Christmas and January 1st! I felt like my brain was in a haze, and I wasn’t sure exactly what I needed to be doing! Lol. So, I just stopped worrying and spent lots of time with my family and friends! I had an extremely busy, yet successful year with Sassy Southern Blonde, and I figured I deserved some grace. It’s crazy because once New Year’s Day hit, I was back on my game and ready to take on 2020! 🙂
One of the things I love about a new year is all the hope, anticipation, and excitement for what’s to come! It’s a chance to start fresh and reset your focus. I enjoyed reading my resolutions from 2019 (HERE) to reflect and also inspire me for 2020!
Instead of worrying about it, PRAY about it!
A few months ago, I saw this quote on Facebook, and it basically said every time you’re worrying about something, pray about it instead. Now when I’m stressing, I almost always think of this quote and I will switch the worrying for the praying. It has made a HUGE difference and is something I am definitely bringing with me in 2020!
Blog > Instagram
I pour so much time and energy into Instagram, but I want to make sure Sassy Southern Blonde is receiving the same attention. After all, my blog is the only thing I own and can 100% control! Instagram, not so much. My goal is to make SSB the one stop shop in 2020!
Learn to say NO
If I tell someone no or that I can’t do something, I feel guilty for DAYS. Then, I think they could be mad at me when the other person probably didn’t think twice about it. I don’t like disappointing people, but I also have to make sure I’m not pushing myself too hard. In 2020, I want to say no with zero regrets!
Be a GREAT friend
My friends were so good to me in 2019 whether it was lending an ear or buying through my links! I wouldn’t survive without them, and I hope they know how much they are appreciated. The older you get, the more you realize who your true friends are, and I’m glad I’ve found mine!
Focus on my health
This is a goal I started a few months ago, and I’m happy I got a jump start on at least one of my resolutions! I have been slacking the last two weeks from the holidays, but I will be back at it on Monday. So excited to continue my fitness journey and share it with y’all!
Enjoy and embrace each season of life
For me, this is easier said than done! I feel like it’s something I have already gotten better about, but there’s always room for improvement! Of course I find myself wondering and wishing for the next big thing, but I know I must trust God’s timing. That means praying for patience and understanding in the process! 🙂
Create quality content
Even though I love my photos, I want to create quality content that I’m proud of! My goal is to invest in a better camera and find fresh inspiration on Pinterest!
2019 was a huge travel year for me, and I hope 2020 brings me as much adventure! I didn’t even realize how many trips I planned. It just happened that way! I visited SO many new, incredible places like Palm Springs, Portland, and Austin. I cannot wait to get the ball rolling this year! A few places on my dream list are Banff, Hawaii, Lake Tahoe, and Santorini!
