Everyday Resolutions

Resolutions aren't just confined to January 1st. In fact, I think they can be more successful when you independently decide to commit to goals instead of just hopping on the last minute New Year's bandwagon. This year, I rang in 2015 in India and decided that I wouldn't make my list of resolutions until I returned home. Why? I was experiencing a brand new perspective. I was experiencing renewal. I was experiencing peace. It wasn't until I returned home and reflected on what I had experienced that I was able to accurately see what I wanted to accomplish and set my goals for this year.


I came back from India with this peace, this quietness. I promised myself that I wouldn't get caught up in the craziness and drama of life. Instead, everyday I am now making a conscious effort to read my Bible, be thankful, live with intention, and look beyond myself. 

I am a serious foodie. And compared to my marathon running parents and hockey playing brother, I wouldn't exactly call myself active. I always feel better when I'm living healthier, my problem is just making the time to make it a priority. My health goal for this year is to live an 80/20 lifestyle. That means most of the time I will eat clean and exercise, but will still be able to enjoy my pasta and occasional lazy weekends without feeling like I've failed. It's all about balance!

Last semester, school was not my top priority. With college applications, work, sports, and blogging, I was stretched so thin. I've always been so driven when it comes to my education and it made me crazy that I wasn't able to invest as much time. There's nothing I really could've done to change that, but I am so grateful that this semester is less busy. As weird as it sounds, it feels so good to sit down and do homework instead of rushing through it before class.

I have set some goals for Practically Imperfect that I am so excited to implement! First, I want to start adding video content. I'm not sure if I've shared this, but singing is one of my biggest passions and I am cannot wait to start sharing some covers with you guys! I am also beginning to have a set editorial calendar. My commitment is to post three times a week.If there is anything in particular that you'd like to see, comment below or email me! 

And there you have it, my goals for 2015. I hope that by typing these commitments out and sending them out into the universe, I will be more motivated to stick to them! What were your resolutions this year?
