Yes, This Is Another 2016 Resolutions Post

I know you’re thinking it. ANOTHER POST ABOUT 2016 RESOLUTIONS?!
The answer is YES, another post about 2016 resolutions. Hear me out.

In 2014 I made a list of resolutions and goals I wanted to work toward throughout the year. In 2015 I didn’t. 2014 was a good year, full of learning and new experiences and 2015, not so much. So, here we are with a 2016 goal list! It seemed like a no-brainer.

Also, ps. I kind of like referring to them as goals and not resolutions. Goals sound much more attainable and user friendly.

So here are my 2016 Goals.

Blog More. LOL, I know. But listen to me, I really want to create something here. I think I have things to say and put out there into the world wide web. I really want to stick to this goal.

Drink More Water. This is like a life goal. I always need to work on drinking more water. Putting it in writing will hopefully just help motivate me to do it.

Get Healthy. Overall, there are a lot of improvements I could make and I want to make that a priority this year. In year’s past it’s not always been something that I’ve stuck to, but I don’t see why this year can’t be the year.

Take More Photos. I oddly don’t take enough and I’m annoyed by that. Photograph everything. That’s the new motto.

Give More Compliments. I tend to think nice things about people or the things people are doing, but I don’t often think about saying it out loud to them.

Say YES More. When my first instinct is to say No, I want to say Yes. I want to experience new things, spend more time with the people in my life, and battle my inner desire for No.

 

Did anyone else make resolutions or goals? I legitimately want to read them. In all seriousness, let me know in the comments or leave me a link to a post you’ve written with your resolutions for my binging pleasure. Thank you, I love you!

Back To Blogging

I haven’t been the most consistent blogger lately and even saying that is a bit of an understatement, I’m aware. However, I would really like to change that.

New year, new me, new blog, and all that stuff.

I briefly considered writing a long post about why I hadn’t blogged and what I’ve been doing instead. In fact, I did start writing a post just like that. But when I decided I wanted to come back here and I planned it to coincide with the new year, I felt like talking about the why and the what of the past just wasn’t important or good for me or for Champagne Laced.

Instead I want to talk about what I love about blogging.

I love reading words from other people. I’ve always found it so interesting what people decide to share online and I love reading their words. I also love seeing their photos. Whether it’s a photo of their home, their favorite things, their family, or themselves – I find it so fascinating. I also admire the hell out of it.

It takes courage to put something out into the world that is as personal to someone as all of that and I like it. It’s why I really love reading blogs. So, one would think that I would put out into the world what I enjoy and what I love reading, right. Well, I stopped doing that for a time, and I had a lot of trouble loving blogging because of it. So, no more bullshit.

The plans I have for this blog are simple.
Simple, but interesting.
Because I want to put out into the world things I love. I want to be proud and happy with every post I publish on Champagne Laced and I want to make this place on the internet something I’m proud of, something I want to show off.

That’s the plan.

So if you’re a long time reader, thank you and I’m so glad to have you back and I’m so glad you’ve stuck around – you must be crazy, which means I like you. And if you’re new here – Welcome to Champagne Laced. Grab a glass and get comfy.
