Life Update

It's been a whirlwind of a year for me. There's been a lot of positives and steps forward, but there's also been a few hiccups as well. A few things have happened that I had no control over or that I let happen... things I'm unhappy with.

But there's no time like the present to make some changes. I know 2012 is going to be a crazy, yet exciting, year for me and Adam. I want to take small, steady steps towards some goals that will make life better.

*Health - this past I've had a lot of body issues... possible food allergies, skin problems and just overall feeling gross and exhausted. I need to cut out a lot of processed food and start eating as much fruits and vegetables I can and I have to keep up on my exercising.

*Sparklegirl - I need to focus on growing my 'brand', whether it's etsy updates or blog posts. I just did my first giveaway on facebook and I want to do at least a few more throughout the year. I also want to continue promoting etsy shops and other artists that I support. Hopefully, by the end of the year I can have my etsy shop or an item I've made featured on someone else's site as well.

*Stress - this has always been something that I'm not great with. I tend to take on as much as I can and don't ask for help. I need to keep my life balanced and say no if I have to or if I want to. Also, I shouldn't be afraid to ask for a favour from a friend or family member either. If there's something in my life that's stressing me out, then I'd like to rid my life of it or at least learn how to deal with it properly.

I know there will always be something to work on and to work towards. Nothing will ever be perfect and sometimes I will make mistakes. But I want this year to be amazing and to build some strong foundations in all the areas of my life.
