In 2017 I’m going on a living spree.

I deserve it.

There are no better words to explain my approach to this year.

When I look back, all I remember is that 2016 was a whirlwind. The beginning of the year had started out with bad news and a glimpse of hope. Then that hope turned into joy when I had become engaged. Shortly afterwards, I landed a new job and then I got married. Absolute craziness.

However, that was only in my personal life.

In my hustles, my blog content had been lost and my fashion business was at a standstill. I was overwhelmed and had no sense of direction. But my frustration turned into determination because it was all I had. I rebuilt my blog in 2 weeks to what it is today and then I used that as a way to start a new hustle – helping first-time entrepreneurs build their websites. Just crazy.

The truth is, I sacrificed a lot. I put things on hold, I went on a hiatus from passions I loved, and I stepped back. It was hard to explain but it was necessary. And now, even though life is as complicated as it was before, I’m more than determined to live.

I don’t have any resolutions, I just have plans. Nothing super grand, just things that are doable – things that won’t contribute to my perfectionist complex or make me get lost in comparison.

All I plan to do is a few simple things.

  1. Count My Blessings Everyday.
  2. Speak Up For What I Believe In.
  3. Stay In My Magic

I’m determined that 2017 is going to be about me living.

What about you?

And by the way, Happy 2017!
