I have been sharing my new year’s resolutions (or goals) since 2018, and I almost decided to skip this year! 2022 was such an amazing 12 months, and it’s bittersweet closing that chapter. I have anxiety just thinking how in the world 2023 will live up to the same standards! Between my brand and my personal life, I was really blessed. I also have to thank y’all because I wouldn’t have a platform without you! 🙂
PS: I just read through my 2022 goals, and I still really connect to them! My 2023 goals will probably sound familar for that reason! Lol.
Make Healthier Food Choices + Drink More Water
I think we all know that I don’t eat the best, and I’m not trying to completely cut all the good stuff! There’s no way I could just stop eating cookies and french fries. I would love to make smarter food decisions though, especially during the week! We shall see…
Focus On Video Content
I am already SO proud of myself for how far I’ve come with video content and editing! It wasn’t even a goal of mine in 2022, but I finally realized the importance of it to my brand’s growth and evolution. I just wish I would have started sooner but better late than never!
Pray For Patience + Being A Good Mom
This goal is aimed at my sweet, precious little boy who already loves to test my patience! I am laughing that this was also a new year’s resolution in 2018 when I only thought my patience was thin then.
Continue Attending Church Regularly
I’m carrying this goal over from 2022 because I obviously want to keep it up! It’s extremely important to me to raise Baker in a Godly home and that starts with taking him to church! We did a pretty good job this year, but there’s always room for improvement! 🙂
Start Working Out Again
Before Covid hit in March 2020, I had been working out 2-3 times a week for 6 months! The difference I saw in myself was crazy. I even had small muscles for the first time in my life! Lol. I really don’t care about gaining muscle again, but I’d love to consistently exercise each week! I feel like I have to make a plan with this or I won’t do it, though!
Jump Back Into Reading
I’m a chaotic reader! I’ll go months without picking up a book, and then I’ll read like 3 in one month. I just finished One Day In December, and I’m starting People Like Her next!
New Year, New Goal Income
I was SO close to reaching my goal income in 2022! I even surprised myself that I was in the vicinity of that number. I’m still going to raise it a bit for 2023 and work really hard! Here’s your reminder that it’s okay if you don’t achieve every goal you set completely. You still made effort and progress!
Work Harder At Saving Money
Saving money will probably be on my goals list for many years to come, but I am happy with the amount I have accumulated so far! This might be surprising, but I’m not usually an impulse shopper. Especially when it comes to big ticket items! There have been times when I regretted not splurging more, but I keep telling myself my future beach condo will be worth it! Hahaha.
GET MARRIED 🙂
I haven’t done any planning since Bo and I got engaged in August! I was entering the busiest season of the year, so I decided to wait until January 2023. We have always wanted to go to Hawaii, so I know that’s where we’re going for our honeymoon! We thought about eloping and having an actual wedding ceremony there too, but I think we’ll end up going to the courthouse. I’d love to book a photographer to capture the moment and hopefully add some glamor to the day! And my mind could still change, but this is what I’m currently thinking!
