Last year when I made this post, it was really just…I dunno…it wasn’t anything serious. I did it all in jest…blogs around me were all doing their resolution posts and I thought I’d join in on the fun. I re-read the post now and…it’s kind of nice to put things in perspective. One year later, what did you achieve? What didn’t you? What did you learn? What did you overcome?

Well, little did I know that the little joke I cracked in the ending of that post would be what would change my life in 2011. For better…for worst? I can’t honestly say. And I realize that for me, 2011 was the year I kinda just went with it. I made very little decisions, stuck to very little life goals, I just went with whatever came my way and hoped for the best. That path has led me down a slippery slope with a few surprises and upsets along the way but for the most part I am here trying to make the best of where it has spat me out. This year I’ll take a different approach. This year, I will write my list, this year I’ll consult it often to ensure I’m on track, and this year, I’ll know where I’m going and not be surprised. This year I’ll put in some work. Stop being lazy Mo!

Are you on Pinterest? You should follow me there and I’ll follow you too! I started somewhat of a vision board on there…these aren’t goals for this year. These are life goals. Right now the board looks something like this:


Dreams of getting healthier, opening a plus size fashion boutique and maybe even having my own line,  travelling to places I read about or see on TV, growing old with true love and walking my daughter down the aisle. All on my vision board…

So, what do I want to achieve this year? I’ll share a few with you. I’ll just be general here but I have numbers and dates, you know, specific, measurable, achievable goals, written where they need to be.

This year, I resolve to:

– make it to 2013

 – grow my blog

 – continue to make strides as a social media marketer

 – invest in my craft

 – look like Laura Wells as much as I can (lose 20lbs…or so)

 – become savvy at being a naturalista

 – potty train munchkin

 – work on that certain side hustle idea

 – break free from debt

 – move on.

Last year I had 10 things on my list and I completed 5 of them including losing 20lbs. Not bad! This time I’m really trying to lose 20 by summer. Trying my darnedest! What goals are you holding steadfast to this year?
