Hope and Wishes for 2016 // New Year's Resolutions

Hey there,

I'm not the kind of girl who actually comes up with New Year's Resolution every year, and I admire so much the people who can come up with resolutions and who have the strength to follow their resolutions. I don't think I've ever found good resolutions to live by for a year, or if I did, I'm sure I gave up a few months later after coming up with them. 

However, because 2015 has been so good to me, and so full of good surprises and unforgettable memories, I thought, why not keep going with the good things and make 2016 a great year too ?! That's why, I decided to write down my resolutions for 2016 to make it even more amazing and to make sure 2016 is as unforgettable as 2015.

And sorry for the picture, which is not related in any way to the post, but I like it and I thought it looked quite good. 


1) Be more active up there
2015 is the year I gathered all my motivation and "courage" (and help) to create this blog. The idea had been on my mind for a very long time but I'd never found the strength to actually create a blog, create the content etc. Now that it's here, and that I love create content so much, I want to keep going, and be more active even though I'll probably be busy with school. I want to make sure I'll be able to come up with at least one blog post every week. 

2) Enjoy the little things
I want to be able to get something good out of every aspects of my life, bad and good. I want to notice every silly things in my day, I just want to be able to remember at least one silly detail about a day and be able to love every day I live. 

3) Read more books
I love to read books, I've always had, but I don't take time anymore to read, even though I keep buying more and more books. A pile of books have accumulated on my shelves and in 2016, I want to make sure I read every single one of them if I've never read them before. 

4) Buy less things
That's probably the hardest resolutions in this list. I'm not kidding when I said that I'm a shopaholic! I really am, and 2015 has probably been the craziest year when it comes to shopping. I need to put some limits and try to be a little bit more reasonable. I haven't found the limit yet, but I'm thinking about maybe going back the Shopping Diet... 

5) Speak out and express myself
I'm a very shy person, very introvert, very anxious... And I found it very hard to express myself or speak out. I hate conflicts, and I hate to face different opinions when it comes to certain subject. I just have a very hard time, saying "no" to people, or tell people when I think they're wrong or something. It's becoming quite problematic with school when I have so many group projects, because even though I get along with my classmates, when I disagree with someone, I found it hard to say it. So for 2016 I want to get out of my shell and speak out for whatever subject. I want to say it I'm not happy with something, say it if I disagree, say what is on my mind if I feel like it needs to get out. 

6) Stop caring about what other people think
This got to be hard one as well. I think that being so anxious doesn't help in the "not caring process". If I said that I didn't care about what other people think about myself, my style, my thoughts, my work, my social medias etc. I'd be lying. I care so much it makes me sick! It makes me stress out, makes me panicking at night. I won't talk about that now, but I really want to stop caring about what other people think. For 2016, I want to focus on myself first, what I want, what I like, and what I think, without being narcissist of course. 

7) Be more daring with my style
Because I care so much about other's opinions about me, I'm not outgoing in any way, I don't like attention and when it comes to my style, I don't want to stand out. Since I plan to not care about what other people think in 2016, I plan to wear whatever I want to wear, and if I want to wear sweatpants on Monday, I'll wear sweatpants on Monday! 

8) Take time to do things that are not looking at my phone, and shopping
I want to take time to read but not only, I want to stop staying at my house on the weekends, I want to go out, visit, go to places I've never been, just get out of my comfort zone, and live my life and create memories. I want to relax and enjoy some peaceful moments.

9) Stop silly things from affecting me
For 2016, I hope to be done with anxiety, I hope to be kinder to myself, and to stop stressing over stuff I shouldn't be stressing about.  I don't want fights to affect me for example, I don't want comments to affect me either, I just want to be able to enjoy my days without feeling very low and anxious at the end of the day because of something that happened or might happen. 

10) Keep loving endlessly
I feel like all my resolutions refer to being able to enjoy my life, my days, and being happy with who I am. But 2015 has been quite the year of love for me. I might sound silly but it is, and all I hope for 2016 is to keep loving the people I love, and love them even more than I could, and to love myself, and to learn to love myself.

I wish you and your loved ones a happy and wonderful New Year, full of happiness, health and love.
