It's the second week into January, and I may be a little late to the game with my first post of 2018 but hey I'm here now and that's all that matters! There is nothing like a fresh start to truly put life and goals into perspective. I love that clean slate feeling about the new year. 2017 was an incredible year! I'm truly grateful for the places I was able to travel to, the people I was able to meet, and for the opportunities presented to me. 

One of the things that I love to do in the new year is a vision board. This just started as of last year and I feel like it really gives me focus and inspiration to go after my goals whether they be little or small. On New Years Eve, my cousin, her friend and I all sat down and made vision boards for the New Year and spoke out loud the accomplishments we were proud of in 2017, as well as what we wanted to change/achieve in 2018. 

Amongst my list of goals, one of my goals which really stood out to me was to be more confident and to be unapologetic. It's funny how being a blogger, you find yourself catching up with people in person and they think your life is a dream and that everything is picture perfect! Don't get me wrong, I love my life however, it is far, far from perfect. I go through high highs and low lows just like the next 29-year-old gal. In 2018 I'm vowing to love myself flaws and all- which isn't easy! It's a constant battle in the mind but the Lord knew what he was doing when he created me- every cell, every strand of hair, every piece of me was designed to serve a purpose that no one on this earth could ever compare to because there is no one like me! And, there is no one like you! There is beauty in knowing that there is no one else like you. No one else can do the things you do, the way you do them. So, OWN IT! I want to own that, and never be sorry for it. I am feeling so inspired, and ready to conquer another year. I truly believe this self-love can change things! It will easily change your perspective on life, and how you handle situations thrown your way. So, who's with me?! What are some of your 2018 goals? Would love to hear them. Leave me a comment below.
