28: my new year and my resolutions

I always count my birthday as my second Happy New Year! It's just another chance to revamp and start again, a chance to make some changes here and there!

Today, I turn 28. Here are my goals for the next year:
1.  Less complaining/more action - it's time to do something about the things that plague me. Whether it's not fitting in my old clothes or wanting to do something nobody else wants to do - it's time to act!



2.  Be purposeful with my apologizing. I tend to say "sorry" for this, that, and the other - so much so that Jordan tells me to quit apologizing. I was thinking/realizing about how when I apologize from now on (unless I just bump into a stranger), I want to be more direct in my apologies. "I'm sorry I said something disrespectful." is a lot more meaningful than "sorry."

3. Keep being myself. This is self-explanatory. 


4. Try to blog more regularly. And wear my hair down/straight. These just take action over laziness. See resolution #1. 




Here's to growing up and being the woman I'm meant to be!

Love,
Jessica

  4. Happy [late] birthday! Love the blog. I view my birthday the same way. Although I'm not a huge birthday person [I'm one of those people who just doesn't understand the point in celebrating it for some reason] I am grateful to be here another year and hope to make the most of my next year. Good for you, and hopefully you can stick with these goals!
