Do Something for Yourself

In a world where it seems we’re constantly going and doing for others, it is crucial to do something for yourself!

It’s not a selfish thing at all, it’s just necessary to keep you at your best (And when you’re at your best, that’s when you’ll attract the keepers) so that you can continue to give back to others if that’s what you choose or even just so you can be at your peak self to tackle whatever goals you set for yourself this 2018.

One of the things I LOVE to do for myself is travel. Traveling is an escape for me. Being in a different city or country and taking in the culture and surroundings gives me a high. It’s where I can be my true self and grow further so that when I get back from my trip I’m ready to tackle anything that may come my way.

I also love to go on hikes, getting to the top of any mountain is freeing in itself, the view from the top is always the best! And the journey up there is what makes getting to the top so amazing!! I recco doing it without headphones in and just take in your surroundings and when you get to the top stay awhile, there’s no rush to get back down.

Your thing may not be travel or hiking, but here are some things you can do for yourself the beginning of this year to make sure you don’t forget about you this 2018.

  1. Make a Dream or Goals Board – Writing things down makes them more real and you’re more likely to set out to accomplish them.
  2. Dream of Your Next Adventure – I honestly feel traveling is Good for the Soul. Dream and plan your next adventure, you won’t regret it!
  3. Read a Book – There’s just something about lounging around with a good book, when you do it, you’ll know.
  4. Go to the Movies – And choose a super sappy, cheesy, feel good one. 😀 You won’t regret it.
  5. Smile More – It’ll make you happy inside, put out positive vibes, and put a smile on someone else’s face too!

What are some things you’re going to do for yourself this year? Comment below, I’d love to hear.

Why I’ll Spend New Years 2018 Alone, and LOVE it!

079A5675You read right, I’m going to ring in the New Year by myself tomorrow. But why you ask?

BECAUSE I WANT TO! There isn’t a special guy in my life right now, and everyone else I would want to spend it with are away or have plans with their special someone, and NO ONE wants to be the third wheel. Especially on New Years.

So, instead of choosing to show up to some party by myself (Which is fun by the way, you should read my article about why I go to things alone here.) and deal with all the F*ckboys trying to get their New Year’s Kiss on, I CHOOSE ME. Believe me, it’s not fun when you know the opposite sex is on the hunt, and on a night that “sets the tone” for the rest of the year, do you really want to start it off with someone you barely know? I mean you can, I’m sure it’ll be fun, I’ve definitely done the last minute New Year’s thing before, YOU DO YOU if that’s what you choose, but this year I CHOOSE ME.

Choosing You is something everyone should do more often, and since I plan on starting 2018 by choosing me what better way to start the night leading into it.

Here are some things I’ll be doing to ring in the New Year…

  1. Drinking First Press Ruby Red Sparkling Wine from Cost Plus World Market
  2. Cupcake Making, To have while doing the below! 😀
  3. Watching Sex and the City – The Movie (for the 50th time, but who doesn’t love Carrie Bradshaw??) and Bridget Jones’s Diary. Thanks Cosmo!
  4. 2018 Dream/Goal Setting Board Making
  5. Cuddles With My Puppy

If you have solo plans this New Years, would love to hear! Comment Below.

Can’t wait to share more with you in 2018!! It’ll be a big year for The Single Girl Life. I just know it. 😀
