My 2023 New Year's Resolution & Vision Board
My 2023 New Year's Resolution & Vision Board
It’s the new year so that means it’s time to write out our resolutions. I think writing out your goals is so important no matter what time of year it is. Even though it is definitely easier to start out at the beginning of the new year. Because of that I want to give you my 2023 New Year’s Resolution & vision board.

My 2023 New Year's Resolution
Before we get started on my resolutions I just want to mention how different this year is starting off from last year. Last year I was supposed to write a 2022 New Year’s resolution post but I was so depressed that I couldn’t bring myself to think about goals. I was afraid because a huge goal of mine fell through, so just the thought of making plans or new goals really hurt. If you want a full explanation you can read My Year In Review.
Being creative really helped even in the lowest of my depression. It made me realize the only way that I can achieve the goals that failed is to continue on my creative journey. Even though most of the year I was depressed I was able to achieve some influencer goals I never thought I was able to do. If I could do those things while I was down, I can’t imagine the things I would be able to do now.
This is my year to get back to the blog. I have so many blog post ideas from the past and new ones that I would like to do. I’m also thinking about increasing the number of posts I do. I want to give creator tips but I don’t want that to take away from the ideas I already have. To not overwhelm myself I’m thinking of doing an extra post every other week.
- Be consistent
- Start mailing list
- Fix SEO
- Increase blog views
- Make business cards
I didn’t expect to get PR at all for 2022 so for 2023 I need to take it seriously. I’ve been pitching to brands but I don’t think the pitch I have now is good enough. In the email I usually leave a link to my blog and my instagram, when I should be leaving a link to my media kit. The reason why I haven’t is that I felt like I didn’t have enough followers but I have to let that go. I have to act as an influencer to achieve the goals that I want.
- Create a better pitch email
- Start asking for paid collaborations
- Look for brands I never heard before
- Fix media kit
- Get a collaboration with: Steve Madden, Princess Polly, Papaya, Macy’s Wine Shop, Rainbow, Edikted, Glossier, Just Fab, Shoe Dazzle and more
- Get invited to influencer events
Other Creative Goals
I have a few creative goals that are outside of blogging and being an influencer. I’ve been thinking about making digital products since last year and I finally made an Etsy that you can check out here. One of the things that I was sad to let go of in 2022 was Twitch. There were so many reasons but what really made me stop was work got in the way. However I know that I will be off for a month at the beginning and end of summer so I want to pick it back up.
- Start selling digital products
- Finally make a mental health journal
- Get better at video editing(CapCut)
- Go outside my comfort zone with pictures
- Stream on Twitch during the summer
Social Life Goals
2022 was spent mostly indoors and I want to change that a bit for 2023. I am an introvert so I don’t like leaving the house much but I do like going to some places by myself. It’s a must for me to take myself on solo dates. I only did it a couple of times but I want to go out at least twice a month. It doesn’t have to be expensive. Something I want to do is walk around the farmers market. I don’t really have to spend a thing
- Make new real life friends
- Make new online/creator friends
- Go out/go on solo dates 2x a month
- Meet owners of local businesses
- Go on dates
This year I really want to travel. It doesn’t have to be a big trip at all, I just need to do it. Last year I was supposed to do a solo trip for my birthday but I could not afford it. I don’t know if I will plan that again because there is a possibility that I have a trip during the summer. Kyra’s(my friend that passed) mom wants to take me to Jamaica, she’s been wanting to take me for years and told me to get my passport ready. So that’s what I need to do.
- Renew passport
- Go on a solo trip
- Go to Jamaica with Kyra’s mom
- Finally visit friend in Sarasota
- Visit Christina after she moves to New York
I really wasn’t taking care of myself last year. With everything going bad last year my health really suffered. I wasn’t eating much, I couldn’t afford to go to a doctor and I was barely exercising. This year I need to prioritize my health. I need to eat better and go on my morning walks. So, Fort Myers has a hot girl walk group and I think it would be cool to join and get to know new people.
- Visit an endocrinologist for Grave’s disease
- Go on morning walks again
- Join Fort Myers Hot Girl Walks
- Make smoothies in the morning again
- Maintain mental health
I spent 2022 trying to pinch money to save up for an apartment that I honestly could never afford to begin with. So many things happened that whenever I had a good amount in my savings I had to spend it to get out of an emergency. I would barely spend on myself. When I would shop I would go to the dollar store. I realized that I was depriving myself, that I might as well spend the money because I was never going to move last year. With that realization I decided I needed to treat myself which I plan on doing this year as well. I’m still going to try to save but not at the expense of my happiness.
- Book more online tutoring classes
- Ask to get paid for brand collaborations
- Start selling on Etsy
- Start website building/coaching services
- Get paid for making CapCut templates
Home Life Goals
So, I’ve talked about how my home life has not been the best in the past. I’m always trying to leave and it hasn’t worked out. 2023 is the year that I need to accept that I’m not moving anytime soon and to make the best of it. I never made my room comfortable to live it because in the back of my head I thought I wasn’t going to stay long. Yes, I still want to leave and get my own space. However I think it’s more important for me to stay and fully embrace my creative side. See where it takes me. Plus I don’t pay rent or any bills besides my car insurance.
- Make my room comfortable
- Be okay with living at home longer
- Spend more time with sisters
- Cook more
