Resolutions are silly. I only say this, because I'm weak and can never seem to keep them. That's why, this year I'm trying to trick myself into making things work and setting intentions instead of resolutions. Let's see if I can pull a fast one on myself and follow these for the rest of the year! Without further ado, in 2014, I intend to...
1. Live With Purpose
Somewhere along the way, I stopped goal setting. I stopped writing in my journal. I gave up healthy habits. I became a shareable version of myself. This year, I will find purpose in every single day and make the most of all 365 of them.
2. Be Present
Whether that means reaching out to someone I haven't spoken to in a while, staying on top of emails and life organization, or just unplugging for a few hours, I want to do more living in the moment. I hope to feel in control of my life rather than always trying to catch up to it.
3. Take Care Of Myself
This goes beyond just the gym this year, though that's something that needs to be done along the way as well. This is about really taking care of my mind and body. It's as simple as things like making sure I actually eat 3 meals a day, regularly going to the doctor, and being responsible financially. I'm an adult and it's about time I started acting like one!
4. Step Outside Of My Comfort Zone
I'm a creature of habit, raised by creatures of habit, so falling into a comfortable routine is incredibly easy. This year is all about pushing myself. Learning new things, facing "scary" things, trying things I think I won't like, and taking risks when necessary.

Let's not forget that I've also got big plans and some amazing content for aliciafashionista.com coming up, so be sure to stay tuned. I have a feeling that 2014 is going to be our best yet!
Happy New Year :)
