In January, I shared a few goals that I had for the year. Now that we are in the middle of the year (seriously, how did that happen?), I feel like it’s an appropriate time to look back and evaluate how I’m doing. I did make a lot of goals for this year, but there were three that I chose to share back in January.
1. Use what I have. I have tried really hard to use what I have this year, and actually finish products before going out and buying three more. I feel like I’ve actually been doing really well with this, as you could tell from my recent empties posts (1,2,3,4), I have definitely been using up what I’ve bought, even when I want to switch things up. Going forward for the rest of the year, I want to continue, and work more on using the makeup products that I have (do I really need another pink lipstick? Probably not).
2. Wear more lipstick. I mentioned back in January that I was starting to feel more comfortable wearing lipstick (especially bolder one), and I wanted to incorporate lipstick into my makeup routine more often. I can definitely say that I have kept up with this one. On days that I wear makeup, I will use lipstick 90% of the time and always feel like my makeup is complete with a good lipstick on. Moving forward, I want to use more of what I have, and stop buying the same colours over and over (again, do I really need another pink lipstick? Maybe not).
3. Give more compliments. I’m still working on this one. I feel like I’m getting better at complementing others when I notice something that I really like about them (whether its something they are wearing, or just about them as a person). It’s still hard for me to speak up sometimes, but it’s something I am working on, and will continue working on for the rest of the year (and beyond too).
Overall, I think I’m doing pretty good with these, I’ll have to look at my other more personal goals to see how I’m doing with that. Regardless of whether I feel that I’ve accomplished these goals or not, I think the most important thing for me to remember is that each day is a new start, and that I should be striving to become a better person each day. “Every day in every way, I am getting better and better” is my mantra that I have to repeat over and over some days. Hopefully it will stick.
Did you make goals for 2015? Do you feel like your accomplishing them?
