This is the time of year when we all focus on our resolutions. I have been thinking about what to write about mine. We all usually have the same resolutions, lose weight, save money, etc. etc. Yes, these are some great ones and they are on my list, but I decided to put some new ones on my list this year. Which is why I have been a little late posting this!

I am going to focus on my skin more. Let’s face it, we are not getting any younger. When I was younger, I went to the tanning bed, a lot. I never had any traces of it show up on my face until a few years ago. I remember telling people that I got in the tanning bed all of the time and never saw any signs. Now, they are here. I have dark spots and I have actually had laser treatments, skin peels, etc to try to get rid of them. I need to be applying sunscreen daily. When I go to the pool, I need to make sure not just to apply it once, but to apply it over and over again. I don’t want another ten years to go by and the signs of aging to be even worse, so I am going to be as preventative as possible.

I am going to work on this blog more. I just started in July, so to be honest, I think I am doing pretty good, but I want to be great. This is where I need to be more efficient with my time and to make the time for this. I need to be consistent and just keep doing what I love doing. Anything you want to see from me? Just let me know!

I am going to forgive more. Yes, you read that right. We are all human and we make mistakes and none of us our perfect. I want people to see Christ in me as I forgive those who have hurt me and realize, “Father forgive them, for they know not what they do” can greatly apply to most of us.

I want to smile more. I feel like 2017 was a crazy year! I moved to a strange town and had some ups and downs. In the fall, I began to feel many more of the ups and I feel them more and more of those ups each day. I don’t want to forget the downs, but I want to remember that they don’t stay forever and that what goes down, almost always goes back up.

I want people to see Christ in me. I want them to see something different in me and to wonder what it is. I want them to see a good women who strives everyday to be good, but is human like anyone else and can be not so good on occasion! I want to live a life that is full of joy and no regrets and that is blessed.

I know that this was a sappier blog post than what I usually post, but I felt led to put this up. I hope that you all have a great 2018 and that you continue reading my blog and supporting me. I truly appreciate the support I have been given in this venture, especially since this blog is my dream come true. So for now, here is to 2018, may it be the best year yet!

By the way, I know I wore this cape in another photo and I had a lot of people ask about it. I hate to say it but I got it at a boutique and it is sold out. I have tried to link some other cool cape styles, but unfortunately I cannot find another one like this!
