Happy New Year! 2017 is definitely starting off on the right foot for me so I can only expect it to get better from here on out.
2016 wasn’t the greatest year for me due to personal reasons and in efforts to avoid all the chaos, I let myself get consumed with my job, because it kept me busy and this blog, because it made me happy. I allowed the bad to take a toll on my life and affect everything I worked so hard on in 2015.
In 2015, I did a lot of self-discovery and learned to self-love. It took me many years to be happy with the woman I am and to learn to my put my health, my happiness and most importantly, myself first. The most important relationship is the one with yourself and I became the best version of me in 2015. My self-confidence boomed. I blocked out all negativity and kept a positive outlook. The social butterfly in me came out of its cocoon and was at an all time high. Even friends I reconnected with told me that they noticed the change! I was in such a good place and I attracted so much good that year. I need 2015 Julia to be the Julia I am now and going forward.
I want 2017 to be better than 2016 and an even bigger year than 2015. There is so much I want to accomplish this year! I want to make this blog everything I’ve ever dreamed my own blog could be and more. I want to continue to advance in my career. I also need to do a better job on unplugging from work once I leave the office, so I can focus more on me and enjoying life! I’m in my 20’s and once they’re gone, I won’t be able to live them again. I want to travel more, see more, read more, drink more, laugh more, dance more, explore more and just do more! I want to have endless memories and tons of pictures in my photo library. I want to look back many years from now and be so happy with the life I’ve lived.
I can’t wait to see what opportunities arise this year, both in my career and for Humidity is the Enemy. Here’s to happiness, success and making 2017 my best year yet.
