WELCOME 2018! Agh I hope everyone had an awesome New Years! I am so excited for this year. Why? Maybe because 8 is one of my favorite numbers. I’ve been waiting for the new year, for a fresh start. I can’t tell you how hard 2017 was for me. So much was going on, its like someone put a spell on me and I couldn’t live a happy 2017. EVERYTHING WAS GOING WRONG. You know what tho. That year is over, forgotten and deleted.
Let’s talk more about 2018. Like everyone thats basic, I too have a few goals that I would like to share. If its written and put out to the public I think ill be more dedicated to sticking to it.
I think this is the biggest goal. Wellness is health, health is survival. I’ve been talking about changing my everyday lifestyle for a while. I always tell my family members that Im going vegan as of today and then couple days later I go get in n out. It’s not a overnight thing. You slowly have to change your eating habits and the way you chose your food. I have slowly been training my taste buds to like certain foods so I don’t crave the bad ones. It’s hard but I want 2018 to be the year where I fully develop a mind that only thinks health. I would love to go vegan 100% but cheese just really gets me.
Water is also a big issue for me. I am the worst when it comes to drinking it. There are some days I go without taking a sip, instead I drink coffee or juice which is a BIG NO NO. Couple days ago I ordered a CamelBak water bottle which holds 1L so I could take to school and not worry about constantly re filling it. I also made sure to get a bottle that had a built in straw so I don’t feel bored drinking the water. I’ve had it for four days now and it’s been the best purchase yet. I feel so hydrated and also now that I’m drinking more water I feel less hungry which is something I am super excited about
I also want to start including workouts into my everyday lifestyle. It’s been a goal of mine for a while. I have no excuse not to do it it’s just that I am incredibly lazy. I have a gym membership that I haven’t used in about three months now and memberships are so pricy let me tell you. I am currently creating a schedule where I include going to the gym at least four times a week and hopefully working my way up. I have a break in between my classes thats about two hours long and my gym is literally right across the street and has showers so I really have no excuse not to go.
Creating a Brand
This has been a dream of mine since I was nine years old. I used to make jewelry and create things out of polymer clay. When I was younger I used to make youtube videos during summer I wouldn’t sleep, my mom would wakeup in the morning and literally force me to go. I wouldn’t I was addicted to showing the world what I have made. The youtube community back then was amazing I had so much feedback and the subscribers grew like crazy. Just over summer I had a little over 1,000 subscribers. I think thats a lot for a nine year old to accomplish. I was proud. I then started selling my pieces at craft fairs and local shows that were popping up around my community. As I grew older high school came around and thats where everything went downhill. I made new friends, started partying and gave up on what I love.
I have recently got back into it and slowly started making a few things here and there for myself. I’m just trying to figure out my style at the moment so I could then share with you all. My goal is to build a brand. Some of you may have seen my Instagram and Etsy page already, Nastik.Co where I currently have a few jewelry pieces that are made by me and a few phone cases. I definitely want to grow my listenings in the next year and slowly go into fine jewelry.
I want to also grow Casual Lattes. It’s been a goal for a while as well but like I said laziness took me and I just didn’t get out until now. I promise you all in the future to come you will be seeing a lot more fun posts. My main focus to this blog is just an everyday girl living her life in a world where she likes to be casual and simple. I don’t want to specifically dedicate this blog to fashion. I want it to be real where you sit down with your latte relax and enjoy a quick read that hopefully relates to your life. Fashion, makeup, wellness, school, and D.I.Y ‘ s will be my target. I want it to be real where you sit down with your latte relax and enjoy a quick read that hopefully relates to your life. I hope you all get excited. I just ordered a white board to hang up in my room so I could write down all my ideas. I want to stay inspired everyday.
Productive and Stress Free
My last goal for 2018 is pretty important to me and thats to be stress free and more productive. There is no point to stress. If something tragic happens don’t stress over it. No matter how big or small. The more you stress the more you’re ruining yourself there is no benefit to it. 2017 has taught me to get over things and not stress about them because you’re hurting yourself more. You’ll never get out of depression mode. If you’re stressing about something that could be fixed get up off your ass and make a change. That’s exactly how I want to live for now on. The more productive you are the less stressed you are. ” Too Busy To Stress ” those are the exact words I want to tell people.
Well those are my 2018 goals. Leave me a comment down below telling me what your 2018 goal are. I would love for you all to share. Good Luck to everyone and may 2018 be the best year ever!
