Happy New Year everyone! It's been forever since I made a blog post but I wanted to start off 2017 by posting about how I mentally want to tackle the new year. I'm not one to make "New Year Resolutions" but I do take time to make a vision board and evaluate the best way to head into the new year. For me personally, it always seems to boil down to my methods of self-reflection and self-care.

A couple of years ago, I read the book Successful Women Think Differently: 9 Habits to Make You Happier, Healthier, and More Resilient by Valorie Burton. It was a great book and gave lessons that everyone, not only women, can take and use to positively impact their lives. I would definitely recommend reading it and want to share the old notes that I stumbled across on what Burton considers to be the 'Seven Key Decisions' to positively impact your life. Hopefully you can take some of these with you, as I have, as we embrace a new season.

#1. I do not downsize my dreams

#2. I focus on solutions, not problems

#3. I choose to be authentic 

#4. I choose courage over fear

#5. I choose relationships wisely and nurture them intentionally

#6. I will actively seek feedback and use it to grow

#7. I know my purpose and take daily action in the direction of my vision

Most importantly, as rapper J. Cole once said, "Love yourself girl, or nobody will."
