Goal for 2018|Try Something New

Even though it’s mid January, and New Years goals are usually decided during the first week, I am going to give everyone reading this a challenge on a fresh goal for the new year. The goal for all of us in 2018 should be to “Try something new“. Now some of you may be thinking well, that’s already what “I do”, but here comes the challenging part once you try something do you give up and never do it again? Most of us will have this expectation before doing something, and whenever we believe reality “fails us“, we decide to never do that again or even sometimes never try anything new again!

Trust me, I have always tried new things, but whenever something did not work out for me or one tiny negative moment ruined the rest of the experience, I found myself in a bubble at home stuck in a runt for quite some time.

As the new year came I decided that changes will be made. And now here I am! I took a risk by starting my own blog and although this is only my 2nd post, I’m glad I did! So whether it’s taking a meditation class every week, writing in a journal everyday for a month, or even joining a club that you usually would not be interested in.

Jump out of your comfort zone and take that risk, go out and try something that you will have to commit to for at least a month. At the end of the month, reflect on your journey of that experience, if it was positive then consider keeping up with it, if it was negative then at least you did your part and tried something new, that’s all that matters.

Comment down below some of your New Years goals/resolutions!⇓

With much love, Ariana.

Hello, welcome to my blog, my name is Ariana Franco and I decided to create a blog to showcase my passions all in one place. My blog will consists of three main categories: Lifestyle, Beauty, and Travel. Anyways, here’s a little about myself: I am a seventeen year old girl, who lives in the suburbs of Chicago, but a full-on city girl at heart. Passionate about intersectional feminism, collaging, and exploring new adventures. Favorites of mine include; rainy days, scrap-booking, netflix, and hot cheetos, lol! I hope that this can be a blog that either helps, educates, or entertains you in your life. 🙂
