Simple Things + Announcement!

As it is now the new year, resolutions are on the minds of many. Some people even have mantras that they want to focus on throughout the year. For me I've never been much into resolutions or mantras at least not seriously. Yes I've had the "I don't want to drink soda for the year" and the "next year I'm going to workout more" resolutions in the past but they always fell through somewhere along the line.

This year I plan on not setting a specific resolution but instead setting a specific mindset. I'm sure I'll need constant reminders throughout the year but I do want to put effort into sticking with it. I think it is something that is worth it in the long run.

So what is my new year mindset going to be? Enjoying the simple things.

I believe that we are complex creatures with simple joys. Many things can bring us joy-even the small things. Maybe instead of searching for joy I can stop and find that I've been living through it all along.

For me some simple things that I enjoy are sunsets, flowers, good talks, the outdoors, family time, and of course a good cup of hot cocoa. Even photography, drawing, writing, painting, and list-making are some things that I find joy in doing. In all honesty, the list could go on and on.

Instead of ignoring the simple things that I enjoy doing I want to slow down and really find joy in doing those things. To sum it up, I want to find contentment in the little things, not take them for granted, and spend my time doing more of the things that bring me joy so that I can get the most out of life. That is my mindset that I want to bring into the new year.

The second thing that I wanted to talk about in this post was an announcement. I cannot believe that I forgot to mention it but (drum roll please...) I am in a magazine!

I wrote an article for The Glow Mag and was published in last month's issue (December 2017)! The Glow Mag is fairly new and was founded by Adeline Rock of Adeline Rock Media. If you want to learn more about Adeline or The Glow Mag then check out her website here. You can even purchase last month's issue *wink wink*! I am so happy that I got the opportunity to be a part of this. Addie did a great job with putting it all together and it looked great. If you read the magazine then I hope you like it as much as I do. ♥

Do you have any resolutions/mantras/mindsets that you want to focus on in 2018?
