How To Make Lasting New Year’s Resolutions
2015, for me, has been a year of getting things done. Over the course of my not so long life, I have gotten into the habit of planning to accomplish certain things and then not accomplishing them in time. But this year I was determined to put a stop to this. I wanted to actually get down to doing things and I am glad to have accomplished quite a bit of what I set out to do.
- Trying out those outfit ideas I have stored on my phone, laptop and Pinterest boards now rather than later
- Give all my relationships my 100% this meant reaching out to long lost friends and trying to be a better friend to those I see more frequently
- Read up on my area of expertise/interest and apply lessons learnt now
Lesson = When it comes to getting work done and making your dreams come true, there is no ideal time. You have to start now and work with the circumstances that you are in now to make the life of your dreams

- When I decided to put more effort in my online shop and personal shopper service, I was terrified of venturing out of my comfort zone. Running a startup is hard, money is scarce, and you have to constantly remind yourself of why you chose that path when you could have chosen a more assured one. But the rewards are enormous. The satisfaction I get from seeing happy clients and knowing that I have given my best is great.
- If you have noticed, this hasn’t been my best blogging year. I have struggled with writers’ block for most of the year. I think my biggest problem is that I tried to get back into blogging too quickly and as if my life had remained the same after I had the baby. But the truth is, my life has changed and I have changed. I just need to find things that inspire me right now and convert those into fun, interesting topics to share with you guys.
- · When I started doing personal shopping, it was evident that people had different tastes and that I had to respect it. Sometimes I would get an order for clothes and the client would not be satisfied, such that I had to look for something else for them. At times, it would take up to 3 tries for them to be satisfied. But in the process, I learned so much, made lasting friendships and grew my skills (not to mention levels of patience).

One of the things I promised myself I would do, ever since this pandemic started and life slowed down, is that I would dress up every single day. Granted, I had nowhere to go, but putting on an outfit, no matter how simple, uplifted my…
