NEW – 2018 Goals & Word of the Year
I may be the most cliche person ever, but for 2018 I have decided my Word of the Year is going to be NEW.
Insert all that New Year, New Me stuff here…
This doesn’t mean I am going to go out and buy all new things, but instead it’s about changing some things to become new.
New resolutions and goals
New spending habits
New body and wardrobe
Even a new smile (stay tuned for how that is happening)
The new me is all about adding to what already works in my life. I don’t really think a person can change – we are who we are, but by adding to our assets, we can really become an improved person, and for me that New person is going to be a great one. One with new ideas, and new outcomes.
With that in mind, I wanted to also share some of my 2018 goals. I like to make some fun ones and some serious ones, so there is a mix of both here
Master the splits again – I used to be so flexible, and then I started aging, quit running/doing things that kept me flexible, and got fat. I don’t know if any of you guys are fat like me and into yoga, but let me tell you, it is hard to get your body into some poses when your stomach is in the way! One pose I can master is the splits.
Have beautiful hair – I tried out fun colors, and while I enjoyed them, they damaged my hair. I am working on getting my hair healthier and growing it even longer.
Wear less t-shirts – My style is t-shirt and bootcut jeans. I tend to wear these because they are easy, but who am I kidding? A dress is just as easy to put on, or cute skinny jeans with a proper blouse.
Practice the Piano more – We were blessed with a piano during the Summer and I started online piano lessons. I have always wanted to learn, so it’s like a dream coming true. I have already learned how to play a few hymns and basic songs, but I want to get better.
Book More Photography Clients – Since venturing into the photography business, I have had very few clients. A part of this is because I don’t advertise myself enough. I’ve already begun booking clients for the new year, so this 2018 goal is off to a great start already.
Meet more Blogger friends – I have so many blogger friends that I adore chatting with online, but have never met in person. I am making it a goal to get out there and meet more blogger friends – and who knows, I may finally attend my first blog convention.
Beautify my Instagram Feed – I always thought I would NOT be the person who has a beautiful Instagram feed, but the more I add styled photos, the more I love it. Follow me @AdukeSchulist to see my Instagram feed become beautiful.

Can you do the splits?
