To A New Year and the Best Version of Yourself

Welcome back! This is a bit late, I know. But, hey, better late than never. Well, never almost happened. This January marks three years from when I started this blog and it also meant my web hosting was about to expire. I was so overwhelmed with the renewal and cost of it all that I had come to decide to let my blog go. I haven’t been posting regularly and the cost just didn’t seem worth it to me. But, that little voice deep inside kept nagging me. A week before it was set to expire I called Blue Host and said help! Here, I am back at it. I sat here, just like when I first started with no clue as to what I wanted to say. So, I went back to the beginning. Somewhere over the past few months, I lost my voice. Not my literal voice, which coincidentally I am just getting back but the voice that wanted to write and share about my life. Quite honestly, I think I just lost my motivation. 

Back to the Beginning

Sometimes we need to reset. As I read my first blog post, it reminded me of how I wanted to inspire others through my life. Instead of saying cheers to a New Year and new you, I want to say cheers to a New Year and the best version of yourself. As I reflect back on why I started this journey, it was to share my life with others. It’s not always pretty and but it is beautiful as all life is. Things have changed over the years, I’ve learned a lot, gained a lot, lost a lot but I am still the same person. I don’t want to change myself this year. I want to refocus on who I am to bring out the best possible version of myself. And, I want to inspire others to do that for themselves too!

New Year and New Goals to Crush

If you know me for awhile, you know I love a list, a challenge, or a goal! So, yes I am still working on my 35 before 35 list but more importantly, I am working on my three-year plan. Some of those goals are to live my best life, become debt free, move to SoCal, do more with my family and get a Pug! I invite you to continue following along with my journey.

I would love to hear what you’re doing to be the best version of yourself too! Leave me a comment below and subscribe!

  1. Yes! I love this. Keep sharing you never know who you are reaching far and wide. Your list was so inspiring to follow along. especially watching you crush each one of your goals. I’ve set a few myself this year. I really want to be intentional about traveling and carving out rest. I think I burnt myself out last year and I really want to be smarter about how I set boundaries. I want to be fun and silly more! I also am looking forward to getting back in the gym before my big 3 0. Healing means I am out till March but I can definitely refresh my gym wardrobe in the meantime. Haha!

    1. I am so glad to have such an awesome friend along on the journey! I can’t wait to see you crush all of your goals! So when are we taking that girls trip lol?!
