My 2017 New Year’s Resolutions

I like to reflect and create a list of New Year’s Resolutions — although I think of them as action-oriented goals — every year. I keep the list in the Notes app on my phone as a constant reminder. This year, I figured I’d share the goals to stay accountable and hopefully inspire people to create their own list and join in. In case you want to join, I’ve linked to a past post for as many as possible.

2017 New Year's Resolutions

    Love all of these! I’ve been trying to find great blog writing/growing courses in the city, let me know if you stumble upon any!

      I like Melyssa Griffin’s but we should definitely look for some in NYC to take together. xoxo!

    This is a great list of goals – you’re so organized! I love the strong self-development theme. My core resolutions this year are to read 84 books and to answer my emails when I check them. I waste so much time reading them once and then re-reading when I have time to respond later. Happy almost new year!

    My new year resolutions are only about my blog since i’m taking a gap year from school. Hopefully my blog will flourish the way I want it to.

    I love reading what goals other people have! I journal daily (and have been since I was in early high school) and they are just treasures to me, it’s definitely something I’m glad I’ve done 🙂

    xoxo, SS
