Hello my little croquetas,
I hope everyone had a happy holidays filled with family, lechon, and cafecito. I enjoyed every second of stuffing my face with pan cubano and soaking up the Miami sun.
I can’t believe 2018 is coming to a close. The best way I can describe this past year is it was somewhere between well that didn’t suck that much and suddenly so much has changed and everything is different. 2018 brought me closer to so many people [shoutout to my SoulCycle fam], I’ve challenged myself as a leader of the CHAARG community, and finally graduated college! And ultimately, I’m truly grateful to be alive. 2018 was the year of a lot of letting go and seeing things go away. I spent the year trying to relieve baggage. From donating//throwing away physical items I was holding on to, to watching many of my friends move away to chase their dreams [and I’m so freakin’ proud of them]. 2018, you were good, but I’m ready for better.
Now for 2019…I can feel it in my bones–it’s about to be the year we make sh*t happen. If I post it on the internet, I’m held accountable, right? This is how this works?
But seriously, 2019 is going to be BIG. It’s going to be a year of a lot of growth, the year of big accomplishments, the year of everything I’ve been manifesting to physically come true.
I’m the kind of person where I am writing out my goals and intentions 3 weeks before the new year. I get so inspired and I love preparing for the new year! *bringing out the palo santo as we speak*
A few of my new year resolutions are to travel to 3 new states, do small things everyday that physically make me feel good [apart from working out and nutrition], do more things that are out of my comfort zone, and ultimately keep growing and really become the person I truly want to be.
This upcoming year I want to document and share more than ever! I want to document my growth, and what better way than that the platform I’ve created! I’ve been taking inspiration from The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin and Refinery29’s Try Living with Lucie by adding elements that matter to me, and creating my own project and taking inspirations for what I’ve read in the past. I mostly want to build off of my habits each month and document how it helps me grow as a person. This little series doesn’t have a name yet, but I am excited to document it through content on this platform.
I hope everyone has a great New Year! Don’t forget to eat your 12 grapes and walk down your street with a suitcase for good travel in the New Year!
See ya in 2019,
