Happy 2014!


Happy New Year, everyone! Who's excited for a fresh start? Even though 2013 was a great year, I'm still relishing in the excitement of a clean slate. I think many great things are to come.

I don't make resolutions for the year, per se, but I do take time to set some goals that are achievable on a daily or weekly basis. I've found that those small promises are easier to keep and lead to more long-term lifestyle changes, which are really more effective in the long run. For example, I had a vague goal last year to get in shape (who doesn't) and I promised myself I would hit up a class once a week. When I started, I ended up loving my new routine so much that I couldn't live without several yoga or barre classes per week. It just became a part of me and I didn't feel healthy and "me" without it. That's when I knew this change was for good. I'm proud of how my lifestyle has improved and am excited to keep it up, and reach even higher, this upcoming year.

I would love to know if you have your own secrets about fulfilling resolutions. Did you make some this year, and how do you plan on tackling them?

  2. I'm the same way, I have general short term and long term goals that I have floating around in my head and then they just seem to happen. This year, I'm looking forward to putting my bilingual skills to work. If you don't use it you lose it! Happy New Year!
