Woah baby! A whole year has gone by... again! I can't hardly believe how quickly time is going by! 

I look at 2016 as a fresh start. Indeed, it'll be a year of uncertainty and unpredictability but that's the most exciting part! I look forward to all that God has in store for me! To think, by this time next year, my life could be completely different or entirely the same, and the exciting part is seeing what happens!

This year, I hope to be intentional and slightly ambitious (compared to previous years)! Now, I don't plan to go over the top; actually, I have a few small areas that I'd like to improve upon and grow in.

(RE)TURN TO MY FIRST LOVE- To be completely honest, since starting school, I've slacked in my spiritual disciplines. This year, I strive to "repent and do the things [I] did at first" (Revelation 2:5). I strive to pray more, read the Bible more and grow in my relationship with Christ. A friend at school shared that his life goal is "God first, you second and me third" and that motto is something I hope to live by. I hope to live my life more for God and others and give more of myself to serving others!
Some things I'd like to implement are:
  • Praying for at least 15 minutes before rushing off to school! 
  • Daily Bible reading until I finish it in a year. 
  • Invite a friend or two to church.

(RE)EMBRACE A HEALTHFUL LIFESTYLE- Last year, I gave up processed foods, refined sugars and excess sodium. Exercise was a huge part of my weekly routine; in fact, I worked out 5-6 times a week and was getting pretty toned if you ask me! Unfortunately, college life got in the way, formal papers and groups projects mounted up and at the end of it all, I was so OVER it... Cucina Liberta has the BEST Chai Tea Vanilla Latte in town and pizza with friends was a pretty usual thing. This year... starting on Monday, because it's January 3 and we're still celebrating, I'm re-embracing the lifestyle that was doing my body so much good!
Some things I'd like to implement are:
  • No processed foods... al least during the week. Its going to be a slow transition back into responsible, health conscious eating :) 
  • Drinking at least 80 ounces of water everyday. 
  • Exercise at least 5 days a week. 

(RE)DISCOVER MY PASSIONS- I'm a go-getter. Naturally, I'm drawn to trying new things and becoming passionate about it if it is something I genuinely enjoy. With school, work and church, I find that "me time" is limited if not completely nonexistent! This year, I want to just take a break, take it slow and take out time to learn and experiment. I want to rediscover my passions and work toward improving.
Some things I'd like to implement are:
  • Blogging at least once a week, collabing with other bloggers and working with more brands.
  • Working on my photography + videography. Now, I don't intend to go pro, I just love playing around with my camera and editing softwares.
  • Reading at least five books this year. These books can be both fiction or non-fiction. Any suggestions???

(RE)LIVE LIFE TO THE FULLEST- In it's expanded form, this resolution includes loosening up a bit, smiling a little more, loving freely, giving by grace, thinking good thoughts, persevering and pressing on, etc.. Basically EVERYTHING on my 2K16 pinterest board :)
Do you make New Years Resolutions? And do you really stick with them?
What are your resolutions for this new year?

  1. Great goals, Kianna! We have a lot of similar ones in common which is really neat! I too have been a slacker in my Bible reading and as a result I realized it was affecting my attitude! I was being a grumpy face :( And I hope to blog once a week as well! Thursday is my set day & we shall see how that turns out!

    1. We do?! Then, we can encourage one another and keep each other on track!
      And yes, being a grumpy face is no fun; so let's grow in His grace, love + peace!

      I look forward to reading your future posts! They are always so encouraging and fun to read!

  2. Thank you for sharing your goals for this year and this quote "God first, you second and me third"! I too need to get back on track with my walk with God. I'm so glad I have Christian blogger buddies like you to encourage me :D! Also, you should make a post on your fitness routine. Since I don't have P.E. this year, I am less active than I should be lol.

    1. Yay! It's always fun + a blessing to encourage one another!

      Oh, and my 2016 fitness routine is scheduled for later on today :) It was a lot of fun to write and I hope it helps you out!

      Thanks for stopping by!

  3. I am loving your blog, Kianna. So encouraging and not to mention the FAB design! This was a great post dear! :)
