Looking Back 2017 Looking Back 2017

Looking back 2017!  Wow, I can’t believe this year is basically over.  Today I would like to reflect on where I have come since last year and check myself on what some goals were that I set forth for this year.  As a reference I am referring to this post.  Some of my personal goals were:

  • Be more thankful and grateful
  • Travel more
  • Relax (work in progress)
  • Workout more (work in progress but I was going strong for a solid 2-3 months)
  • Drink more water
  • Eat healthier
  • Be responsible (definitely cleaned up lots of bills and such this year so pat on the back)
  • Purchase splurge bag…Red Gucci Disco ✔️
  • Laugh more, love hard, spend more time with family (yes, yes and yes…also always a work in progress)
  • Go to bed earlier (work in progress lol)
  • Buy a house (timing was not right in 2017 but end of 2018 slash beginning of 2019 is looking like it’s time!!!)

My professional goals were:

  • Turn Vida Fashionista into my full-time job (I am happy to say that it is one of my full-time jobs and I can dedicate the time that I need and have always wanted to put into everything!)
  • Be a buyer for a major fashion company (let me just say that at the time of writing that last year I wanted to put “be a fashion stylist for a major fashion company” I couldn’t see it happening clearly so I just wrote buyer since that is another interest of mine. Well I’m happy to say that I am a fashion stylist for a fashion company!)
  • Be a fashion correspondent (work in progress)
  • Time management (Work in progress though I have gotten so much better.  Now that I have more free time to be creative, I can properly make sure I am getting enough sleep along with making time for blogging and other projects.)
  • Be authentic (I think I am as real as they come lol)
  • Step outside my comfort zone (This definitely happened!  In 2017 I left a job that I hated to take a chance and pursue my dream job!  It wasn’t easy and still isn’t but I have never been happier.  I wake up everyday excited to go to work, to know that I am doing what I love.  I also finally launched my styling company!!!  It’s amazing what can happen when you step outside of your comfort zone.)

This year I won’t share all of my goals with y’all since they are personal but I’ll share some.  For the sake of this post, I won’t put them in personal/career categories, I’ll just lay them out there.

  • Run a 5K
  • Travel more
  • Work on my active listening skills
  • Buy a house
  • Expand my styling company
  • Take more time out for my soon-to-be husband <3 (go on dates, live in the moment)
  • Be more patient
  • Work out more, eat healthier, drink more water
  • Say “Thank you” to someone or for something everyday
  • Make more YouTube videos!

I thank you all from the bottom of my heart for following along over the years.  Without you, none of this would be possible.  I took a chance and it has been one of the most rewarding things in my life.  Have a great day!

Thanks for reading!
