2018 New Year’s Resolutions

I typically stay away from resolutions because I never ever keep them. Especially the hit the gym and eat right one lol.

I do try to be a better version of myself each year. It’s important (I think) to work on the inner beauty of our yourself. Tackle the demons , work out the pain that’s holding you back and most importantly give back. Make the world a better place.

1) Cut out Toxic people and negativity. This probably should be two resolutions but I feel they go hand and hand.

Toxic people – this one is hard because toxic people are typically friends , family and sometimes even co workers. Some you can’t completely cut out of your life. For me, my personal stance is if I can’t cut them out of my life 100% then I won’t engage with them.

Toxic people bring so much negativity in your life. These people are miserable as hell and as the old saying goes “misery loves company” holds true. They project their issues on you.

These people are not friends, they are people with issues they haven’t worked out yet . In order to deflect the need to work on themselves they’ll tear you down but in a way that seems like they care.

Toxic people will not be on my journey in 2018. They are too much of a heavy load to carry and I have enough on my own.

2) Staying positive – this one is super hard for me. One of the things I admire about my husband (other than his good looks 😉) is how positive he is . He wakes up happy to be alive.


I am usually the only one that can push his buttons but even then he somehow is able to diffuse the situation and keep calm. Overall he is the happiest, most positive person I know. I constantly ask how he does it. He’s admitted it’s not easy and takes some work.

So in 2018 I want to learn from him and keep positivity at the forefront of my life.

What would the year bring if I kept out toxic people, negativity and replaced it with positive vibes.

I’m excited to find out.

What are your resolutions?

    What great resolutions! I am working on the same and you are right. The most toxic people are usually friend, family and co-workers. My new way has been to conserve my energy and avoid spending it where it’s too expensive and cost peace of mind and weighs too much. I want to travel light this year. I am going with the mantra”if it’s not a hell yeah! It’s a no. So if being with this person does not spark that feeling I am saying no so I can move on to what really excites and inspires me 😍
