I hope the new year is off a great start to many for you, and if you’re only starting to get in the swing of things, you are only human and I’m proud of you.
If you are like the rest of us, you’re obviously praying and planning for a successful 2023! The thing is, if you’ve been doing the same thing years after years and you’re not seeing the desired results, darling, I hate to break it down to you like this, but something must change; that’s why I put together 10 important habits that I think you must adopt if you haven’t yet.
Check them out below and let me know if you can relate to any of these.
10 things to do for a successful 2023:
1- Discuss starting a new business, investing, gym, healthy lifestyle, self development with your friends.
2- Take a risk this year. Whether it’s in business or your personal life, take a leap of faith.
3- Train yourself to take nothing personally. Most of the time it’s not about you, it’s about them. This will keep you sane.
4- Don’t chase money, go after the freedom that comes with having money. Two different goals.
5 – Put that idea into action; and don’t worry about looking silly or stupid. Noah looked like a fool until it started to rain.
6- Be uncomfortable for a few months to be comfortable living the life you want to create for yourself.
7- Learn a new skill, a new language, do something different or you will be doing the same thing that is not bringing you happiness for the rest of your life.
8- Not everyone is called or meant to be an entrepreneur. If the 9-5 is working well for you, awesome! Be you and do you!
9- Don’t tell people more than they need to know. They can guess, lie, misinterpret or say whatever they think they know.
10- Whatever wrong you’ve done before, make peace with it and let it go. You are not perfect. You are capable of making mistakes. Stop hiding from the shadows of the past. Don’t be trapped in the darkness of shattered memories. Let the light shine through and shine upon you. Forgive yourself, because it’s the only way you can start again and do better.
What resonates with you?
Thank you for reading and share this with someone today.
Only a couple weeks into the new year, and I can feel around me all the vibes and energies everyone is putting toward making 2023 an epic year. It really feels refreshing to see how mindsets are been shifted, and people are claiming more of what they believe they deserve. You have to believe it to achieve it, guys. Let’s keep this momentum and, together, we will thrive.
New Year’s Resolution.
In all transparency, It hasn’t really sunk in for me that the new year is here. It feels more like a continuation and if I have to be honest, I haven’t really sat down yet to jot down my goals. I’m hoping to do that this week. By the way, how are you doing with your new year’s resolutions or goals so far? The word on the street is that people are not really obsessed with new year’s resolutions as they used to be back in the days. In fact, I have written about this a few years ago and I have also shared with you what I have been doing instead. Who remembers anything from a couple months ago, let alone a few years ago though? 😀 Don’t sweat it, refresh your memory HERE!
The Word Of The Year
I’m sure you have heard about choosing a word for the year. This basically means choosing one important word that resonates with you and try to live life by the word. Some examples of words of the year could be: Intentional- You’re vouching to be more intentional with your actions this year for example. Discipline.- You’re working on being more disciplined with your daily habit. Evolve – You believe that in 2023, it’s all about evolving for you and you are willing to do what it takes to get you there… and so on and so forth.
However, if you’re still fond of new year’s resolutions and it’s been working great for you, stick with it, darling. We do what works best for us, and the French will say: “On ne change pas l’equipe qui gagne.” If you do feel like you like the idea of choosing a word of the year and for the sake of trying something new, go on and read about choosing a Word Of The Year.
Something to consider
Choosing a word of the year has been working well for me for the past years, but I have read about something that has sparked my interest and gives another perspective on goals and, I wanted to share that with you. Before I get to that, let me remind you to join my VIP newsletter list if you haven’t yet, because I have shared what I’m about to share here withyou with, my newsletter friends and I received some great feedback. So take a quick second and join now. I promise that I will never spam you. In fact I must say, once you’re on that list, you may regret not being on it sooner! 🙂 –
Anyways, back to what I wanted to share with you guys about the new perspective on having goals. Don’t get me wrong, having goals and writing them down or having a vision board will never go out of style. New ideas or trends may pop in here and there, but let’s make it clear that this post is no way shaming the idea of having goals and using all means necessary to achieve them. The secret sauce here is what most people fail to understand. What truly lies between your goals and actually achieving them, is the commitment you make to form a daily habit that enables you to get closer to achieving these goals, one day at the time. Does this make sense? If not let’s go a little deeper. Let’s talk about the difference between goals and commitments.
Goals Vs Commitments
Simply put: A goal is the end result… something dear to your heart that you want to achieve (your deepest desire), such as running a marathon for instance. – On the other hand, a commitment is small habits or rhythms of life that put you in a position to get there. In this case, running four miles five days a week to prepare for the marathon.
Do you see where I’m going with this? We all want to achieve our goals, but not everyone is consciously committed to put in the work! In order for us mere humans to achieve our deepest desires, we do have to commit to the small daily habits that will eventually lead us to the final destination… our dreams becoming reality, That being said, in my book, goals are widely overrated and commitments are majorly underrated!
“Goals are the desired end result, but only commitment to a working process gets you there!“
Here are my two cents about setting goals: Dream big, but set realistic goals. Commit to the work and the small daily habits. Be disciplined and be patient. Don’t take the whole new year new me too seriously. It’s still the same old you, maybe with a truer you.
Whether you choose to stick with new year’s resolutions, choosing a word of the year , having a bucket list, just having rules of life or seeing the new year as a continuation to your last phenomenal year, there’s no right or wrong to this. Just remember to be present and enjoy every day as it presents itself. Don’t take life too seriously… Sometimes, you just have to go with the flow and trust God’s perfect timing.
“Goals are the desired end result, but only commitment to a working process gets you there! “
Thank you for reading. Share this post with your people. Someone needs to hear this today 🙂
How are we already in mid-November? Like they say, time waits for no man; and 2022 has certainly been on a speed train, especially this last quarter. I’m seeing folks already starting with their Christmas shopping and decoration, and I ask myself, how is this even possible that we are already almost at year-end and planning end of year festivities? Are you shopping and decorating for Christmas already? I’m giving myself another week to come to terms with the fact that Christmas will be here soon enough… I mean, can we celebrate Thanksgiving first? 🙂
Anyways, let’s talk about this bright, fun, and colorful outfit. when it comes to my outfit choices, I have been living a lot more lately in colors (like HERE and HERE); and I think this look has been one of my favorite colorful looks I styled this year. I love that it’s bright and fun, and classy at the same time. It’s a versatile look that will take you from day time activities to cocktail hour or dinner-date with a friend. Each one of these pieces brings a cheerful vibe to the look and tells a story of their own; and that’s exactly what I love about fashion. No matter how many times you style a piece of cloth, it always tells a new story every time. They are ever-ending and make you wonder about what’s next to tell. 🙂
I hope you enjoy today’s outfit post.
As always, thank you for visiting my blog. I hope you have a safe and happy week.
Wedding season may not be in full effect like it was a few months ago, but wedding guests dresses can also be worn during the holiday season so here I am sharing an outfit I wore to a Summer formal wedding this year.

Summer has come and gone. It has been full of great activities and whole lot of fun, but I’m here for the warm and cozy weather of autumn. Though it feels like the month of October just flew by, I did enjoy it. After all, it is my favorite month of the year! 🙂 Shout of to all the October babies here, especially my #LibraGang 🙂
If you think I’m behind the fashion season and whatnot this year, you’re right, I am; but bear with me. I’m working on Fall content, and they will hit the blog soon. In the meantime, enjoy this fun and bright monochromatic look I wore to the airport while my husband and I were heading to our wellness resort and spa in Carefree AZ. – I shared content about this look and some others on Instagram. You will also see a lot about our stay at the resort there, so if you’re not following me there, you are missing out. 🙂 It’s not too late though, go check it out! 😉
