New year, new you.

sweater: c/o romwe; vest: beyond the rack

I can't tell you enough how much I needed my little work vacation to end the year perfectly. I got so much stuff done for myself and have such a better outlook on everything. I feel more so much more inspired and less lost. I can already feel that this year is going to be a good one because my mind has been set back on track and I am ready for anything!

This year I want to focus on being better. Mentally, physically, and in everything I do. Here is a short list of some things I hope to accomplish:

- Reject negativity from my life. This is a huge one that I might post more about later.
- Be inspired every day
- Get my workout routine back on track. Not to lose weight, but to force myself to stay active.
- Be the person I want to be
- Get my hair done (finally)
- Build a solid marketing plan for my upcoming projects
- Read more
- Draw more
- Don't forget to take time for myself, especially when things get hectic.
- Build new relationships

What are some things on your list of improvements?

  2. What a great list, Dana! All of those are fantastic things but I like the reject negativity and taking time for yourself once in a while. We seem to forget that when things get crazy. awesome :)

  3. That's a great list! I need to make a list as well .. I know I could definitely read more and I want to try and stay more organized this year :)

  4. On my list, the top thing is to get healthy! Far too long have I put it off, the time is now. Positivity!

  5. I want to do all of these except 5 & 6 The others i think are essencial for me as well :)

  6. they are all amazing things, im definitely trying to do similar :)
    im trying to stay positive, stress less, eat more healthily, believe in myself more, try to start loving my body and who i am and get more organised :)
    good luck with sticking to yours x

  7. I would love a post on rejecting negativity! Staying positive is one of my goals for 2013. I also would love to know what you do to stay inspired! x

  15. you look so pretty! hope you'll reach all your goals this year! happy 2013! :) x


  16. I want to get some exercise in, too. Since I pretty much sit at a desk all day now, I would like to do something--even if it just tones my muscles. I'd be happy with that. :) I think I'd like to walk more, to go along with that topic. The negativity thing is one that I can relate to, but I didn't think of as part of my "resolutions." I did think to "respect my fiance" more, and to "write more." (I gave up writing in my journals years ago and would like to set aside 15 to 20 minutes a day to do that again.)

  17. I love your nail polish color. What's the name of the color ?

    1. I'm going to do a post on it later! It's special ;) haha

  18. Seem to be good goals for a new year. :)
    I have some of them as well, the new relationships point for example.
    And I will be running a run that's nearly a marathon. That's my big project for 2013. ;)

  19. You look gorgeous Dana! My list for the year is very similar to yours, especially focusing on the positives instead of the negatives. I hope you have an amazing 2013 xx


  20. you look lovely. My big thing to work on it my weight...Menopause sucks ( thankfully you have a long time to wait for it) I miss my 25 inch waist so much, LOL I invite you to add this post to my Thursday blog hop ( its still open) xo P.S. my new giveaway started today!

  21. Love the outfit! :) xxx


  22. I want to draw more, it is such an unusual new years resolution but I used to draw all the time and now I never do, plus I used to find it relaxing :)
