Here’s to 2017

2017 is going to be a year about me.
I want to do the things that make me happy.
I want to get rid of all the negative energy in my life. 

So how will I do it? I have decided to do a few things to increase my happiness level in order to make this year better than the last. Maybe it will help you out as well! 

I am starting with cutting off the people who make me unhappy. I removed some people from my snapchat, and deleted some phone numbers. People can be toxic, and I don’t want to breathe that in any longer. You should know that it is okay to get rid of people who are causing you pain from your life. You don’t have to feel bad about breaking off a relationship without having a good reason. If your gut tells you something, listen. If it doesn’t feel right, get rid of it. 

I also deleted an Instagram spam account I had. If you don’t know what that is, it’s a private account used to post anything you want. At first it was a place to post funny pictures you didn’t want on your actual Instagram. Over time, it changed to drama and a place to complain. There was so much negativity on it from me and the people I followed. I don’t want to spend my life feeling sorry for myself. I want to surround myself with things that will bring me up, not drag me down. I made the decision to get rid of it so I would no longer be involved in any of that negativity.

For all of January, I want to go barefaced. That means no makeup at all. This one will be a little tough, but I know my skin needs a break. Also, I am hoping it will allow me to be more confident. I always rely on makeup to make me feel better about myself. While there is nothing wrong with that, I want to see how confident I can be without it. 

My friend got me a “52 lists for happiness” journal for Christmas and I want to stick to using it all year long. I want to see how I progress throughout the year, and see if it actually helps. I really want to use it all year, without skipping a week. So every Sunday I will dedicate 10 minutes to filling out the list. If you want to check it out, here is a link to purchase it!

Finally, I want to start posting content on this blog that I like. I focused too much on posts that would get views in 2016 rather than the posts that made me happy. This year will be different. I will still have some beauty/fashion posts here and there, but mainly my blog will be posts like this. Posts where I actually get to write and talk about topics that mean a lot to me. 

I hope 2017 is your best year yet, and I hope you accomplish all your dreams. It’s never too late to start. Good luck and happy new year!

  1. Wow! I wanted to include the part about going barefaced on my blog, but I was afraid why people would think lol. Can I join you on your challenge a day late? Great post – I love that people are doing what makes them happy – especially on blogging! On my blog, I’m thinking I want to improve my actual writing and someday maybe be featured on discover (I can dream big, right 😂?) I also may do the daily prompts. Idk, writing that blog post on my blog (that you saw) made me feel really free, earlier I felt tied to doing lifestyle/ beauty. Now I can do whatever I want! Ok now I will stop talking 😂 Happy new year and I followed you on insta💕💕💕
