We certainly can’t think of a more fun opportunity to dress up than for the holiday season and its many parties, get-togethers and Kodak moments! Our own resolutions follow below, as well… Get ready, 2018!

New Year, New Resolutions!

“I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes. Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re doing something.”
– Neil Gaiman

“The new year stands before us, like a chapter in a book, waiting to be written. We can help write that story by setting goals.”
– Melody Beattie

This year, I hope to turn my weaknesses into pleasant challenges. I grow closer to a more robust self-esteem year after year, a moral that nobody’s negativity should bring down. I want my „joie de vivre“ to shine brighter than a diamond… 🙂
I also keep putting kindness first, to be as generous and giving as possible, to spread the love.
Mind and health will stay a priority: I will spend more time reading and doing sports. I promise!

Even if my comments seem typical, in 2018, I would like to take time to work out more. Oftentimes, after work, stopping by the gym seems like a mountain, although, quite ironically, sports give you more energy. A little 25 minutes after work, go go!

On the other hand, a long time ago, I came across a striking quote; ‘’Happiness is an inside job’’. Although external events affect us a lot, it is important to refocus on what is inside. In 2018, I want to work with this mentality, stop banging on my head or blaming myself for anything that happens around me.

Again and again, honesty will be a focus for 2018, my number one value.

No matter what your 2018 resolutions are, if you follow them or if they change during the year, what remains important is that you stay true to yourself. Be true to your values and what makes you happy; do the best that you can regardless of the circumstances.

Happy 2018 New Year to all of you.
