Birthday Marathon

Birthday Marathon

A lot happened in November and I’m happy to say that I stayed truthful to my trending theme and continued exploring all the fabulous fall trends that I wrote about.
Cold weather is always my biggest pet peeve, if you can tell… People get so excited about coats and layers, I am just here raging and waiting for another good year on summer.When I turned 21, I made a self-confession for my video class. It turned out to be an awesome, self-reflective exercise,
so I’m doing it again for my double-duo year! (Is that a thing? It should be😝)

1.) Set intention daily

2.) Be wild and catch up

3. )I will be more on time than ever (I am still perfecting, but I’ve gotten better)

4.) You have to eat the fortune cookie, it will make your dream come true. It’s science!

5.) If I get validation for being intelligent – I’m going to want to keep reading and learning to have clever things to say

6.) Make yourself an investment, not a bill

7.) Never-ending curiosity about what’s going on around you

8.) Luck is created by the prepared.

9.) Life is a game and true love is a trophy

10.)Speak with honesty, think with sincerity, act with integrity

11.) Never apologize for showing feelings; you apologize for the truth.

12.) Putting effort into your look and owning it’s a Do.

13.) Mind over matter

14.) Infuse your life with actions

15.) Act on it, delegate it or delete it

16.) Conduct yourself with some dignity

17.) Never leave a man who’s trying his best- focus on supporting him.

18.) Being willing to collect evidence that disproves your point not only helps you anticipate problems but also makes your point stronger.

19.) Never drink to feel better. Drink to feel even better.

20.) You can have dreams and you can have visions of what you want to happen, but success is just hard work.

21.) The deciding factor in life is how you handle setbacks and challenges. People with a growth mindset welcome setbacks with open arms.

22.) How people treat you is their karma. How you react is yours.

Where you off to celebrate for Christmas? I am dying to hear from you all ‘cus I have no clue!
Even a wine & cheese night by the fireplace would make a memorable night, right?
It’s all about who you’re spending time with.
Cheers to the year-end of 2017, muah.

    I absolutely love your outfits! They are so cute. I also love your goals that you made for yourself. It in its self is a wonderful idea. “Make yourself an investment and not a bill” is a great ideology. We have to put something in to get something out in the end.

    Great post girly!

    “Never drink to feel better. Drink to feel even better.”

    I love this one, because it’s so true… Like whenever you drink to feel better, you feel bad the day after because of the hangover! :/

    I really like the idea of “Act on it, delegate it, or delete it” I need to remember that! This Christmas I’ll be heading to the country to visit my parents and brothers, I’m really looking forward to it!

    I wish I had recorded something like that when I was 21. Better yet, I’d like to record it today and send it back in time to 21yr-old me!

    I love your sense of style and how you were able to create mantras to get you through the next year. I never would have considered doing this at 21. Great work!

    Setting intention daily needs to be on my list … and at the top of it. I set great intentions but not often enough to act on them.

    Wonderful idea about recording your thoughts for your 21st birthday.

    I agree with No 8 “Luck is created by the prepared”. Of course there are some negative things that just happen and you can’t do anything about it. But even then, it still depends on us how we handle it.
