new year, new goals.

welcome, 2017! the beginning of the a new year is always so refreshing to me. in the last few years, i’ve given up on small ‘new year’s resolutions’ that might last a month {i have the biggest sweet tooth… ‘no sugar’ will never happen} and instead focus on creating detailed long-term goals for myself, sassy red lipstick, and my relationship for the entirety of the new year. i’m pretty good about referencing those goals every few months {i just keep a list on my phone!} and they really help keep me driven & focused. i’m happy to report that i checked off almost every single goal i had made for SRL last year! it feels so empowering to look back and see that you accomplished everything you set out to in the new year.

in past years, i’ve also chosen a ‘word of the year’ to guide my attitude and mindset in the new year {you can read past words of the year here, here, and here}, but this year i’ve decided to go with a ‘mantra of the year,’ instead. for christmas, my mom gave me a thin rose gold cuff that reads ‘be true. be you. be kind.’ i love those words and the fact that i can wear the dainty cuff on my wrist as a little reminder is a great {and stylish} way to keep me on track, so i decided to make that phrase my mantra of the year.

so here’s to a new year of being true to who i am, my standards, and my brand; being me and letting my personality really shine through in my work; and being kind because the world could use a lot more of that and i want to do my small part.

i’ve centered the majority of my 2017 goals around this mantra and can’t wait to see what’s in store for the year. happy 2017! xx bell sleeved sweater dress {similar here, here & here}
