2015 Goals Reviewed

2015GOALSREVIEWEDIn 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).everydayiamgettingbetterandbetter

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?

ps. Overcoming life’s hills, choosing to be happy, and living in the moment.

  • Great goals! I will definitely be adopting these into my year as well. I’ve already been working on using what I have, but I especially love the ‘give more compliments’, that’s a lovely idea!


  • THanks for the inspo this is a great post!!!

  • I made 4 major goals for this year: more reading, running, yoga, and forming better relationships. I just posted earlier this month (https://candidcerebrations.wordpress.com/2015/06/01/3652/) on my progress because that marked the halfway mark. I feel good on some and behind on a little. But it’s good to know that we have pretty much half the year left to keep working towards them so I find that encouraging.

    As for lipstick, do you NARS? Because if not you should try it. I absolutely love it.

  • I need to learn to use what I already have! Tryin’ to do this with re-working clothes and new looks with them!! Not so easy as one would think!! xo

  • I guess I have been sticking to my goals pretty well (except loosing the last few pounds of baby weight *sigh*), but I will take some time to reflect on them, too.

  • I adore #3! That’s a wonderful goal to have. I can imagine that it’s not always easy, but I really admire you for the attempt. (hey wait I just did it too) 🙂

    Congrats on making progress on these.
