What's Beyond the Horizon

I took a short break from the blog for the holidays, for various reasons. The two most apparent being the overall hectic nature of the last weeks of December and having the monster flu take over our house. I don't think I can remember the last time I was bed ridden because of a cold.

But here we are, 2014, and man am I excited for a new beginning. This past year was great, I followed through with many of my resolutions and had an overall positive year. I accomplished my main goals: losing all my baby weight (+ some!) and doing outfit posts on the blog (something I was previously too unsure of myself to do). I felt they went hand in hand, I wanted the documentation of outfits to boost my self esteem and be a way for me to see the results of working out. 

I also was able to clear clutter, metaphorically speaking, and rid myself of unsupportive people. 

With that being said, this year's resolutions are nothing groundbreaking but they are furthering last year's. More staying fit, more positivity (people and self esteem) and welcoming new projects. 

While I cleared my life of the unsupportive gossiping this past year, I allowed general negativity to get to me. Mostly from people who were lost and insecure, trying to find an easy target to bring down. This year, I do not want to be that target. If you're insecure and want someone to pick on, keep looking, I don't care what you have to say! (R-E-S-P-E-C-T!)

Beyond that I want to keep challenging myself and learning new things. I love baking, so I want to tackle some new recipes that are generally more complicated and use my frosting tip set a lot more. I also hope I can be a positive influence to my peers and encourage self-confidence. I want to hear less people boast about how they "don't cook" and instead hear people talking about what they are learning to cook, because home cooked meals are healthy and being healthy makes you look your best and looking your best makes you confident.

Here's to a great new year!

  1. Those are great resolutions, Sarah. I hear you about avoiding negative thoughts and people - the older I get, the less tolerance I have for either. I'm glad you decided to do outfit posts - I enjoy them very much!
