The year of new beginnings, old habits & the end of old flames.
Every new year brings out a fresh, crisp new list of resolutions or goals. Be it, financial, career orientated or self – care, taking time out to outline & manage your goals for the year is a great way to map out how you would like your year to flow.
Write down a list of goals to accomplish every day which in turn will lead to the larger goal. It could be as simple as going to the gym or reading a chapter before bed.
Breaking down your goals into smaller actions plans, makes them more attainable & provides clarity.
One of my goals of this year is to read more, being an avid reader in the past, I found myself getting lost in the deep, dark vortex of useless Youtube videos. Instead of dwelling into Youtube, I read a chapter or two before bed, which also helps me fall asleep quicker.

1. A system or method to track the passage of time
2. Not to waste
I think it’s safe to say it’s taken me a plethora of time to
a) write a blog post for this outfit
b) find a compelling topic to talk about
While researching for a topic, I realised I was spending more time scrolling through Instagram – all the in the name of research – instead of reading other styles of work & topics. After spending three hours staring at a blank draft, watching four Buzzfeed videos about puppies & sending two texts messages on how busy I am, I realised I wasn’t going to be able to meet my self given deadline.
Time can be a foe or friend.
Either plays with or against you.
But it’s your choice on how you will let time fuck with you. You either use it wisely & go chasing Z’s feeling accomplished or let it eat away at you while you watch time be good to those who know its value.
The key is not to waste time on things/people/doings who will add no value to your life. When you don’t add value to your life, time will not be of your value.
Focus on what sets your soul on fire & time will follow.

2. Not that fucking hard to be
Everyday we’re exposed to hate & negativity, impacting our daily lives & most importantly how we treat others. In spite of all this negativity , we have no idea what others are dealing with in their personal lives, so it’s plain and simple:
It costs $0.00 to me a nice person & I assure you, you will not regret being a nice person. Some might say being nice is a sign of weakness & to an extent that is true – there is a such thing as being too nice. However, a little act of kindness can go a long way. People will forget what you said, what you did, but will never forget how you made them feel. A small act of kindness can turn anybody’s storm into a rainbow.
Here are a few things you can do to practice kindness:
1. Be kinder to yourself: When you practice self love, your kindness will flood the world surrounding you.
2. Focus: Train your mind to see the good in everything & everyone. Happiness is a choice. YOUR choice.
3. Be quiet: If you have nothing nice to say, don’t speak.
4. Don’t expect a return gift: If you expect something in return for being nice person, then you aren’t a nice person.
Just remember, you are never too important to be a nice person.
