Making Some Changes + My Goals for 2017

Making Some Changes

As I sat down this morning to plan out my blog posts for the next couple of weeks, I found that I was struggling to come up with ideas. I've been running into this problem a lot recently, and I've been finding that when it comes time to do my "scheduled post" for that day, I make up an excuse for why I don't want to post it, or why I don't have time. I finally had the realization today that I shouldn't be limiting myself or my posts. Beauty and makeup are my biggest passion, but I want to share other parts of my life on here as well! Along with beauty and all things related to that, I've been making some diet changes recently and have been really enjoying finding and making a bunch of healthy recipes and I want to start sharing them! There's so many other things that I want to start writing about, and I think this is why I haven't posted consistently on here. I still will definitely be doing beauty and makeup posts, but I want to start sharing other things I find enjoyment in. I have a friend who's in the fitness industry that started out writing about her journey on a blog, and she created a post on Instagram the other day saying how she stopped posting consistently because she treated her blog more like a job, and that post is what started to get me realizing the same thing. BTW, you can find her blog here. She's an awesome person and such a good role model for the fitness industry.

My Goals for the Upcoming Year

There's no better topic to go along with this post than my goals for 2017. 2016 was a great year, and I feel like I changed so much (in a good way!). I finally had the courage to start posting about my Youtube channel and my blog on my main social media pages - which might I add was probably one of the scariest things I've done. I was receiving positive feedback from people that I didn't expect, and it was definitely a good reassurance I made a good decision!

I've never been one to have new goals at the beginning of a new year, but this year definitely feels different. I feel like I gained so much motivation for 2017, as weird as that may sound (or not even make sense at all). I decided that it was only appropriate that I make some goals to keep it going! My first goal is to graduate college. For those of you who don't know, I am currently a senior going for my bachelor's degree in Psychology. My second goal is to post consistently on here. I'm hoping to get to 3-4 times a week. My third goal is to post regularly on Youtube as well. Those are my three main "business" goals that I hopefully will accomplish in 2017!

As always, please leave me a comment if there's any specific type of post that you would like me to do. I hope you guys enjoy the direction I'm taking my blog!
