ONE Do something creative every day. Whether it's documenting my day via Instagram, blogging, working on a design project for a friend, or simply doodling, I want to keep the creativity flowing all year round.
TWO Connect with loved ones. Many of my closest friends and family live in different states (or countries) so it's always a challenge to find time to catch up. In my experience, we make time for things that are important to us, and that's why I'm planning to connect with my favorite people on the regular this year.
THREE Be an adventurer. While I always look forward to new experiences, sometimes it's just easier to do dinner and a movie for date night, rather than coming up with something novel. One of my goals is to come up with fresh adventures, so we can truly explore Seattle, the Pacific Northwest, and beyond. Currently on the list: Ethiopian cuisine, paddle boarding, and champagne tasting.
FOUR Respect your body. This means being conscious of what I put into my body and exercising regularly, but also understanding the amazing capabilities I have, without comparing myself to others.
FIVE Let go. Living in a digital age as we do, it can be difficult to unplug from our technology and just be. This year, I'd love to focus more on being in the moment and less on catching up on the latest tweets or Facebook posts. To me, letting go also means worrying less about things that may not come to pass, and forgiving the past; because without forgiveness, we're not able to fully embrace all the amazing things to come!
What are your New Year's resolutions? Wishing you success and happiness throughout the year, with plenty of fond memories and adventures peppered throughout! Cheers to making every day count in 2014!
