REALISTIC GOALS FOR 2017!
Hey Babes I am sure you have gotten your fair share of "2017 Goals & New Year New Me". But, as I reflected upon last year I had many great things to be grateful for, as well as ideas to make this new year more meaningful to me. As a future clinician some of the things you first think about when speaking to a client , is what does the client really want? So I asked myself what do I really want out of this upcoming year? Another thing you express to your client is that we want to make goals that are attainable what we can genuinely work towards. So I told myself make goals that you can definitely achieve (even if you do baby steps). After pondering this for a while I finally came up with my list for the Year.
2. Read More: Being in College you are meant to read so many books for educational purposes ( which in most cases I enjoy) but I also want to read more books for pleasure. I am a supernatural, sci-fi, drama/detective junkie. I just purchased the next book to a series called Fallen, I am reading which is by Lauren Kate.
3.BLOG more: Being a student, employee, and intern I hardly have any time during the school semester to blog. That is why when I can I do bulk blogging (I shoot more than 1 outfit at a time). Of course this also takes a lot of time and effort because hauling around extra outfits and finding a place to change into takes some time , but this will be something I try to accomplish more this year.
4.Spend Less Money: Being a Grad student *excuse my language* ( makes me fucking poor as shit). The last couple of years I must admit I spent more money than I should have. This year I am definitely going to be more diligent on what I spend my money on. (i.e Less is more, the idea about focusing on pieces that can be worn with many outfits)
5.More "Me Time": I know this sounds hella cheesy but, I am the type of girl who likes her own time. Time to do even the simplest things like spending the whole day cleaning or at the gym and not caring about how I spent the "time". I also want to find more things that enhance my quality of life things that make me happy or that comfort me. It is understanding that time is valuable and living in the present and doing things that matter to you is what's important.6.Working on Myself: I'm not the type of person who gets angry easily, but sometimes I can be more blunt than I need to, and even though I do not mean to sound "rude" or "condescending" sometimes it just happens so..... I need to think a little more before I open my mouth to make sure I don't repeat those mistakes in the future. I also want to be more kind and patient, I find that I am patient in certain areas, but in others I lose my shit too fast.
7.Eat Healthier: Now I did not say im going on this strict diet but, shedding a few pounds is on my list. I would like to eat healthier and have more self control like not eating the whole dam bag of chips in one sitting.
8.Better Relationships: As I mentioned before I am an introvert and like to spend more time alone.I have come to understand that being independent and alone is great, but having people who you appreciate and appreciate you is so important to have an enriched life. That is why this year I want to strengthen old relationships and leave myself open to new ones.
About the Outfit I am absolutely IN LOVEEE with my embroidered floral leather jacket. I had it on my wish list for a while when I saw it on Forever 21, but after a while of waiting I couldn't pass it up. I am glad I made that choice because I really love the detail on this jacket. I decided to style it very casual thus, I dressed it down. I wanted the floral detail to be the center of attention so I wore a basic black top, distressed denim and my favorite black boots! let me know Do you Love it or not?
