Reflections | Resolutions

Instead of reflecting on the past year, I’ve decided to make a list of resolutions that I will do my best to stick to not only throughout 2015, but in general with my life. The reason I choose to not look back too much on 2014 is because I know it was quite the stressful year for me that if I think deeply about, I’ll only become more stressed. I know there are always highs and lows of every year, but the biggest high for me was making my big move to San Francisco! I’m so excited to see what this new, incredible city has in store for me and I can’t wait to start making more connections, finding my better self, going on more adventures, and ultimately, continuously growing and being happy in the process. 
Let’s focus on the positive and keep moving forward. 

What I look forward to in 2015…
Redesigning my blog. This is something I’ve wanted to do for some time now but haven’t had the chance or tools to do so. I’m eager to bring a new light to Panache Offblast and my readers!
Eating healthier. In general, I feel that I take pretty good care of myself when it comes to what I eat, but I’d like to include more greens / fruits and perhaps not eat so much chocolate everyday!

Exercising more. On that note, I need to get back into a serious exercise routine. Throughout 2014, I started a few 30-day challenges and I felt great, but something would come up, and I’d go months without doing anything, so it’s like that 30-day just vanished! It’s time to find something to stick to throughout the entire year and beyond.

Blogging more. This is one element of the past year that I am super ashamed of not doing more of since, well, it’s a passion of mine that I have been hoping to make a part of my daily structure. I’m definitely getting a planner soon that I can create a blogging calendar into to help me stay more organized and on top of things!

Collaborating more. This is where fellow bloggers come in (let me know if you’re interested!) along with designers, boutiques, and all fashion enthusiasts in the digital realm. I really need to expand the social network for my blog (follow my links at the end of this post for a start, and say hi!)

Being more active with my business ventures. I’m sure most of you aren’t aware I have items for sale on my Storenvy, Panache Boutique! It’s because I’ve neglected it lately but I promise I’ll be adding more and sticking to it! With that, Brian and I have been discussing our own business ventures the past few months, but haven’t gotten around to executing a plan or anything. We’re hoping to really make things happen this coming year! Last but certainly not least, blogging more also means turning Panache Offblast into a full-time business!

Doing something new every week. I’m in a new city, I should really be taking advantage of all of my new, exciting surroundings. The transition has been hectic and I still don’t feel like I’m settled in, but that’s no reason to not take time to explore and have fun at least once a week!

Saying yes more. I’ve always been a pretty hesitant and cautious person when it comes to opportunities that come my way, because of fear of… something. From here on out, I vow to say “yes” and allow opportunities to come my way and help me grow more!

What are your resolutions for the new year? Any highs and lows of 2014?
