little vows for 2013


I’ll be honest. I can’t NOT make New Year’s Resolutions. I wish I were one of those better people that say things like, “Resolutions are ridiculous. No one ever sticks to them anyway. Continual improvement is the best,” but I’m actually one of those people who pretends they didn’t make any resolutions while silently making little vows to themselves about how they are going to make the upcoming year the best one ever. This year is tricky for me because I’m 28 now and I’ve heard (via an article post on fb) that turning 28 makes a person officially old BUT I’m also getting married this year and everyone knows that the girl who is getting married is queen for the year, so I think it balances out.

I’m here today to share with you lovely Girl Town readers, a few of my little vows for 2013. Hopefully I can stick to them. Here they are:

1. Use more coconut oil! What does it do? What doesn’t it do!?

2. Take vitamins daily. Especially folic acid, biotin and the rest of the B-complex.

3. Wear your pretty clothes and give yourself lots of compliments.

4. For heaven’s sake, stop comparing yourself to other people. Be inspired by people. Stop being materialistic. Use social media for good, not evil.

5. At all costs, be kind to everyone.

6. Take care of yourself! Be active. Eat well. Floss daily.

7. Learn how to use your sewing machine.

8. Get to Seattle this year! Visit your favorite sister and your favorite city.

9. Drink more tea.

10. Be kind to yourself. Your mind is your most powerful tool. Practice using your thoughts to benefit yourself.

11. Don’t worry about being perfect. No one is.

      I’m so happy you get to experience the coconut oil wonderfulness! I’ve been putting it on my eyelids and I swear it’s making my eyelashes grow longer!!

      I wish you were closer so we could have a craft/wine night and you could teach me!! We would have to do things in that order though, otherwise it could get ugly. :)

    I love #4 – it’s so important!

    I’ve been trying to start my days by waking up and saying to myself: “It’s today! And what better day could it be?” Positive affirmations in 2013!

    Also you are definitely the queen of the year ;)
