Checking In With My 2015 Goals
I set several goals for myself in the year of 2015. Some have been going great and others haven’t been going at all.
I had two goals in the beauty department: embrace lip liner and continue chipping away at my stash. I was doing great with lip liner at the beginning og the year and then I reorganized my desk and as the saying goes “out of sight, out of mind.” I need to pull them back out and keep them in view so that I remember to use them. My decluttering has been going great. I’ve managed to full cut off my makeup shopping. I’ve only been making repurchases when an item fully runs out so I’ve pretty much only been buying skin care, which honestly is wear the bulk of my money should have went in the past. The better your skin care, the less makeup you need. That’s just a fact.
I had one very simple hair goal – take better care of it. And to my own personal astonishment I went and chopped it all off to start anew with fresh healthy strands. All of the died and damaged hair is now officially goal and I’ve been doing my best to treat my curls with love and respect. I’m kicking ass with this goal!
My one fashion goal was to revamp my shoe collection. I haven’t really bought any shoes recently, but I’m quite happy with my sandals and wedges. I like to keep footwear simple in the summer. I have tan and black sandals and wedges and that’s good enough for me. I like to play with shoe style more in fall and winter so I’ll be keeping an eye out for fun new styles and classic staples.
Financially, I’m still struggling a bit with my goal to build my savings. I’ve been investing in building my blog and YouTube channel so not much to put aside at the moment.
My final goal was to get in shape. While I don’t feel I’ve dedicated myself to get the aesthetic results I was looking for I do feel a lot stronger. I can even run a mile, which is astonishing to me because I flat-out hate running. I still have a lot of soul-searching to do to find the strength to really commit. I just haven’t and I need to.
With just over half the year behind us I think I’m doing better than I though I would with working on my goals. My savings and fitness need more dedication but I’m not discouraged. I know I can do anything I put my mind and energy in to so it’s just a matter of actually doing that.
