Get Set

 Detail bydetails Cardigan and Polo| customized ombre shorts from  Popharper | Michaela Bag 
 Parisian black boots| Island Girl Necklace

Today is officially the start of 2012! With that, let me leave the usual Fashion talk and Interior Design ramblings just for this post and share with you guys instead 15 reflections/resolutions I cooked up yesterday from me to me. 
(This list is actually longer in real life but 15's the most I can share haha)

1.) I will not try to please everyone. I will simply do what I know is right. 

2.) The more productive I am the luckier I will become.

3.) I will focus more on less and I will get rid of stuff I do not use.

4.) I will not try to read other people's minds. I will not make other people try to read mine. I will communicate effectively.

5.) I will never make decisions in a state of emotional haste.

6.) Everyone doesn't have to like me and I don't have to like everyone.

7.) My habits define my life.

8.) The biggest mistake I can make is doing nothing because I'm scared to make a mistake.

9.) What other people think of me isn't that important.

10.) If I want to believe in myself more I will start doubting other less. Because where I most easily doubt others is where I most easily doubt myself.

11.) I will let go of things I can't change and concentrate on things I can.

12.) There are thousands of little things  that just aren't worth fighting for -- I will neglect and let them go. I will choose my battles wisely.

13.) If I want to remember it. I will write it down in a trusted location 
(not just meetings and schedules but also ideas!)

14.) I will not waste my time on jealousy. I'm in competition with one person and one person only--myself. I'm competing to be the best I can be.

15.) No matter how it turns out,it always ends up just the way it should be. Either I succeed or I learn something. Win-Win.

Hope these personal resolutions got to you guys too
and may it somehow someway help! :)
*Cheers to the New Year!*
