15 Things To Start Doing In 2015

Reposted from: http://latteswithlipstick.com/2014/12/31/15-things-to-start-doing-in-2015/


1- Drink more water

Your skin will glow and you’ll shed some pounds. Just do it.

2- Stop trying to please everyone.

It’s like running a race with no finish line. You will NEVER accomplish it and you will just become exhausted in the meantime. You don’t like everyone and not everyone will like you. Let that be and spend time with people who like the real you.

3- Don’t sweat the small stuff.

Stress = premature aging = wrinkles and bitterness. So, the fact that they put 2% milk in your coffee instead of skim isn’t the end of the world.

4- Set goals

How do you know where you are going, what you want, and what you are working towards otherwise? You can’t start your journey without a destination.

5- Buy less “junk”

True story, I wish I could return every “trendy” piece I bought at Forever 21 in the last 5 years and put it towards a YSL bag.

6- Fail more often

It’s okay to fail. If you aren’t failing, it means you aren’t taking enough chances.

7- Wash your face. Every. Single. Night.

Your face ages up to 11 days every night you don’t.

8- Don’t chase boys.

It’s hard and I’ve been there. The ups, the downs, and the excitement of the rollercoaster that is winning a guy over can consume you. But ultimately, it’s really dumb. A great guy would have known you were awesome from the start. You never need to convince someone of your worth.

9- Think of 3 things that make you happy. Now find time for these everyday.

Mine are working out, drinking my coffee while reading a book, and chatting with my mom on the phone. Yep. Every single day.

10- Stop comparing yourself to others.

It’s a bad habit everyone has, but at the end of the day, we are all different and equally lovable. Imagine a dessert shop, with only plain chocolate chip cookies. Those are great, but you want options! You want cheesecake and donuts and, for gods sake, a warm brownie with some ice cream melting on top. These are all good- just different. So, next time you find yourself comparing you to that Victoria Secret model, imagine a world with only one kind of dessert. It’s dark people, just don’t go there.

11- Less phone, more people.

It’s a bad habit we all have, but if you don’t catch up on your twitter feed everyday or text someone back instantly, you’ll still survive. Promise. The relationships you have with the people in your life are so much more important.

12- Get 8 hours of sleep every night.

It’s crazy the difference it makes when I get 8 hours compared to 6. Think Britney now, compared to 2001 shaved head Britney. Nobody wants to deal with that.

13- Stop complaining.

I know it’s hard, there’s so much to bitch about. From that lady who walks too slow RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE of the sidewalk, to not bringing your umbrella the one day it downpours. But complaining doesn’t make these things go away, it just makes you unhappy and unpleasant to be around. Try asking yourself if this will matter in a year, and if not, blow it off. Why waste your energy on negativity?

14- Travel somewhere, anywhere.

Traveling is by the far the best investment you can make. My friend, who loves to travel, once told me, “Traveling is the only money you spend that makes you richer.” But also, European boys…

15- Take more chances.

Whether it’s wearing a skirt you’re not sure about or moving across the country on a weeks notice, (actually done that one), just go for it. It’s ALWAYS worth it. Even if it fails, at least you can lie in bed at night without regrets.

Kiss goodbye to 2014-it’s 2015.

2014 was the year to stick your middle finger up and not care what anyone else thought. 2015 is the year to change your life and get shit done.
