I have never been one to make New Year’s resolutions. I just don’t really see the point of feigning commitment to some new goal just because the calendar year is turning. I am more of the mindset that when I decide a change needs to be made, I’m going to start making it right now, not on some arbitrary day dictated by a weird societal tradition. Nope, not for me. Not at all.

At this stage of my life, I wake every day filled with gratitude for all of the blessings in my life. I also approach each day as a brand new opportunity to accomplish the things that I didn’t get to yesterday. Sure, I understand that we cannot possibly achieve all of our goals in a single day. But I am damn certain that I can take the necessary steps each and every day, even if they are tiny ones. And as long as I live my life with this attitude, I am fairly sure that my path is leading in the right direction.
But if I were to make resolutions, they would look something like this:
I resolve to be the best possible version of myself at every given opportunity. This means remaining authentic and genuine and true to myself at all times.
I resolve to take care of myself the best way I know how. This includes taking a break when I feel like I am reaching my limits and have pushed too far.
I resolve to support, encourage, and empower any person who needs such support, encouragement, and empowerment. I know full well that another’s success will never take away from my own.
I resolve to continue throwing kindness around me like confetti.
I resolve to never ever throw actual confetti. That makes an awful mess and one that I don’t have the time nor the desire to clean up.
Today, I am honored to join Ada of Elegance and Mommyhood as co-host for her last Thursday Moda Link Up of 2017. Although I have never met Ada in real life, she and I have become quite wonderful friends. With the mindset that “motherhood and little grabby hands don’t have to sacrifice style and elegance”, Ada has created a beautiful blog where she showcases her elegant style while tending to her gorgeous little one, Vivian. Being a mom of two young boys, I also set out to never allow dirty little boy hands to take the style out of my wardrobe.
Keeping in mind that Ada and I are both moms of wee ones who come at us with all sorts of dirt and germs, we have each dressed up colorful skirts with heels, creating easy to wear outfits for New Year’s Eve or any occasion really. In fact, I wore my outfit on a random Wednesday because life is an occasion and I am going to dress for it.
So what are you resolving to do…not in the new year, but today, tomorrow, or whatever day the urge strikes you?
Keeping it on the edge,
Linking up with these Fabulous Link Ups.
