New Year, New Adventure

I am sure every single one of us says this each year, but I cannot believe how fast this year went by! For those of you who already know me, Lauren here! But for those of you folks joining in Tuesday Topics today! Welcome! I hope you enjoy the link up, enjoy my little space on the internet, and reach out! I always love getting to know more people out in the blogging community!

Anyway, our first topic starts today with Ten Resolutions. In 2016 I was lucky enough to pursue my love of travel and have adventures and ending the year unwinding in a festive holiday season with loved ones. Whether you were able to celebrate the holidays or not this year, I hope you had time this year to relax and recharge and spend some time with your favorite people too!

And now onto next year! Let's have an even better next year! Looking ahead to 2017, I want to share my 10 hopes and possibilities to resolve in the next 12 months ahead. Every year brings new travels, work, challenges, etc. Ultimately in 2017 I hope to stay healthy, fulfilled, and inspired.

Work out consistently and eat better: I plan to do this by working out at least three-four times a week and ensuring that I meal plan my lunches and breakfasts. I already do my dinner and if I can pick up the other two meals (and snacks), I think my body will thank me.

Travel somewhere I have never been: I am a creature of comfort and often travel, but to places I have already been. I am thinking somewhere I have never been like The Grand Canyon, New Zealand, England, or the Caribbean are on my wish list!

Earn more money: Even millionaires are looking for ways to earn more money and I know I could use an additional source of income for some comfort. So I plan to try and finally put money where my time is. This means doing the opposite of what people are probably resolving to do, but I will spend more time on social media and keep learning and connecting.

Dress better: The way you dress says a lot about you. I feel more confident and powerful in the right outfit. It is easy for me to skip the stores since for a living I wear scrubs, but I would like to have a good first impression when not at work as well.

Continue to learn Spanish: I have been learning Spanish and I want to really take the next step to speak more fluently. Spanish will improve my communication skills with patients at work. I would love that.

Volunteer/give more up to charity: I think devoting time and energy to a cause is noble, an opportunity to meet new people. and learn new skills. I have a couple of causes I would like to further my involvement in to meet this goal.

Get and keep my home clean and organized: I have a decent handle on my organizational skills, but there is always room for improvement and I think by using a bullet journal style for when things have been cleaned/organized, I can better keep on top of it!

Redo my backyard: Ask me to design a room, I am on it! Ask me to design a landscape and I just procrastinate. I will ensure it gets done this year!

Take better pictures: I have had a DSLR that I have really never invested the proper time to learn and utilize to its full potential. This will be the year that I do that. Life is too short for blurry memories!

Do the best I can each day: Above all, I will do what I can when I can. I resolve to be the best person I can be.
I wrote the other day the secret to resolutions. Essentially, they need to be measurable and realistic. I think I outlined these pretty well for a successful 2017!
