Okay, so… I really didn’t want to do this, because I find New Year’s resolutions to be kind of cliche. But, you know, I do have some wishes for the new year, as I’m sure everybody does, and I also love lists, so might as well combine the two and call them hopes, dreams or wishes – although great in theory, I think resolutions are too strict and that’s why people are inclined to break them. So I hope these things will happen in 2016 and I will do what I can to make them happen. But, although there is hope and good intentions, there is no certainty because none of us can control every little thing in our lives or the lives of others – believe me, as a control freak, it is very hard for me to admit these things! 🙂
So what I wish for 2016 iiiiissss… to be happy. I know it sounds simple and ordinary, but constant happiness is really hard to achieve, I think. Let me be frank, 2015 has not been a good year for me. Besides the fact that my health was compromised, I can’t really say my mood was great either. This is not an easy thing to talk about and believe me, I was not good company. But I am more than determined to change my attitude and my frame of mind. “New Year, new me”, huh? Yeah, well maybe just “New Year, old me” for me. I just want to go back to my old energetic-optimistic-self. I want to be a better partner for my boyfriend, a better friend for my loved ones and a better person in general. And it is true what they say, happiness starts with you. You cannot expect others to make you happy because then you’d still be unhappy and drag the ones you love down with you by disappointing them. I know I am a better partner for my man when I feel fulfilled, happy and/or driven. So that’s the first and foremost objective for this new year: be happy (or at least happier than last year).
Okay, another important thing on my list this year is to take more care of this blog. God, have I been a slacker in 2015! Well, no more! As one of the things that make me happy, I think it’s important not to ignore it. Therefore, I will try to post more often. Oh, also work on the quality of my pictures (staging and stuff like that), as well as on the quality of the content. So there’s that. You’ll be seeing more of me this year!
Other important things on my mind right now are travelling way more this year, enjoying my growing family (my niece, guys, calm down), saving money (good luck with that, sucker!), redecorating our apartment (how am I saving money if I’m traveling and redecorating? I don’t know, I don’t have all the answers – surprisingly – but I’m sure I’ll make it work somehow *crosses fingers*) and focusing more on myself (you know, with manicures, pampering, makeovers, stuff like that).
It’s a new year, you guys – what are your hopes dreams and wishes?
Whatever they are, I hope all of them come true and I wish you a truly happy new year! Enjoy it! – OH, and this year we get a bonus day as well, as 2016 is a leap year – let’s make it count!
