New Years Resolutions 2016

by - Monday, January 04, 2016

Hello all! Wow this is our first blog post of 2016! Today we are sharing our New Years Resolutions with you all (maybe if we make them public we will actually make an effort to achieve them? Haha!). We hope you can find some inspiration while reading these! Cheers to the New Year! These are our resolutions for 2016, but we'd love to hear yours! Comment below (:
Grow our blog
We created this blog about half a year ago and enjoyed watching it grow, but there is still room for much improvement. These past few months we have gotten many page views, some from all around the world which is very exciting! We wanted to thank you all for stopping by to check out our blog. When we started this blog, we had a lot to learn and we think our blog has made a drastic improvement from what it was before because of the changes and renovations we have made to this site. However, we are still not completely satisfied so that is something we would like to change in this new year. Also, we have made a resolution to connect with you guys more through social media and such. 

Be more consistent
As many of you may have seen throughout these few months, posting consistently has been a big issue for us two. Whether its lack of motivation, too much stress, or just being too busy to even sit down and write, we definitely did not post as much as we would have liked to. That being said, blogging more often is one of our biggest goals for 2016. It will be a challenge, since school and just life in general can be very busy and stressful, but this is a goal that CAN be met with more hard work and dedication. Side note: if you have any ideas for blog posts that you would like to see go up this year, contact us (preferably through email: simplysemisweet@gmail.com) or comment! Getting new ideas is always helpful!  

Be more active
A big goal of ours is to be more active this year. Sometimes it's just so easy to not workout or just not move around, but exercise is a key component to a healthy lifestyle. We are already trying to eat healthier (smoothies in the mornings are AMAZING. We will do a post on our favorite smoothie recipes soon!) but exercising is also crucial. To be honest, we've been sore for days after doing a 30 minute high intensity workout and another 30 minutes of abs and stretching. Yikes! Hopefully as we start exercising more, we will get accustomed and won't feel as sore!  

Get a job
We have been on a job search for quite some time now but we want to actually GET a job. We would love to work in either a clothing store/boutique or bakery! Having a job allows you to meet wonderful people and gives you a memorable experience to look back on one day. It also teaches you a lot about responsibility and time management (we could definitely be better about managing our time wisely!). 

Live in the present
Okay we get it. You've probably heard everybody say it. But it's so true! First of all, we are big future planners and that's great, but only to a certain extent. As high school students it's so easy to get caught up in future planning, especially for college. But trust us when we say that being completely immersed and overly excited about the future can be a big headache when you realize that the "future" your talking about hasn't come yet. 

Also, we want to truly focus on the people that surround us and making memories while we can! We want to be able to have fun now and have memories to look back on!

We hope you all had a great time celebrating the New Year! Also, we hope 2016 has been great for you so far. We can't wait to see what's in store for us this year! Make this year count guys!

Happy 2016

xoxo
