Even after experiencing the craziness of 2020, I still felt like I somewhat stuck to a few of my 2020 resolutions! (Linking that blog post HERE) Maybe a few goals were unrealistic because let’s be honest, traveling was pretty nonexistent. (Although I still managed to go to Miami, Rosemary Beach, Jackson Hole, and the Smoky Mountains) I do believe everything happens for a reason, and maybe that time period was meant to prepare us for something great!
Some of you might laugh at the thought of even trying to make new year resolutions at this point (and I don’t blame you lol), but I like to keep it positive and hope for the best! I decided to jot down a few thoughts and goals I have for 2021 and wanted to share. This year will be an adventure like no other for me! 🙂
Count My Blessings Daily
Goodness. I hate that there are some days I’m so busy that I forget to stop and just say thank you Jesus! He continues to bless me beyond what I deserve. I want to find a great devotional, so I can strive to start each day with quiet time and a positive mindset! Making this a top priority in 2021.
Learn To Cope With Stress + Anxiety Positively
I have probably put a form of this on every New Year Resolutions blog post to date, but it’s something I am STILL most definitely working on! For those of you who are familiar with the Enneagram, being a Type 7 can cause you to gravitate toward unhealthy Type 1 tendencies like perfectionism and being overly obsessive. This side comes out the most when I’m dealing with my blog and business because I just want to be the best resource I can for y’all!
Prepare + Pray For Motherhood
Even though I’ve had months to process, I still can’t believe I’m having an actual child in June! Being a mom is always something I knew I wanted eventually, but of course I wonder how I will ever be as great as my own mother. She is seriously the best and so selfless! I hear your motherly instincts will kick in, so I shouldn’t worry too much and that makes me feel a lot better. Y’all know I love to stress! *See above* Lol.
Become A Homeowner
This is a personal goal for 2021, but one I’ve had in the back of my mind for years! I’d like to think I’m pretty smart with my finances because you never know what tomorrow will bring. I’m excited to start the process soon and watch it all unfold! And let’s be honest, I have already been saving home inspiration nonstop because decorating is the fun part! Until my indecisiveness kicks in! Haha.
Quality Content + Consistency With My Brand
I have so many ideas on how to improve my content across the board, but I feel like there’s never enough time in the day! For example, I have been putting off learning to create video content for too long. It’s something that I love to see from other bloggers, but it intimidates me! Lol. I think that’s the perfectionism coming out! And I also want to *finally* invest in a new camera I’ve been mentioning for a year now. My Canon Rebel just isn’t providing me with the quality I want!
More Real Life + Transparency
I seriously love sharing personal, real life moments with y’all, but I know I don’t always do a great job! There’s really no reason other than me being the worst at multi-tasking. I’m usually caught up in the moment whether it’s with my family, friends, or Bo and I’m just not on my phone as much! I try to be as present as possible with them, but there’s a balance somewhere. As far as daily life goes, I’m pretty boring during the week with behind-the-scenes tasks! I want to do better in 2021, though, so I’m going to work on this starting with more consistent IG Stories!
