STYLE/ Out With The Old


Out with the old, in with the new.

A new year inspires life-changing decisions and actions. I however, am sticking with a continuity plan. 
New year, same me.

I had seriously underestimated the pressure a new year brings. The itchy feeling to be better, to make actionable goals and plans which end up falling short of expectations because life, and leaving one worse off than at the beginning of the year.

In the year 2017, I made those sort of goals. I still remember it as one of my worst years ever. I fell sick a lot and hit big lows so in 2018, I decided to be kinder to myself. 

I set personal growth goals focused on my physical and mental health that involved taking better care of myself and taking a more active approach to life by leaving my tiny cocoon. These sort of goals, I’ve realized, don’t put pressure on one, relatively speaking that is. So I basically took life as it came and worked steadily on my long term goals.

After one of my instafam commented on the continuity concept, I’ve decided that’s the way forward: Keep on working steadily on your long term goals. If you want to change an aspect of your life immediately then change it. No pressure.

In conclusion, the only thing I plan on changing is my wardrobe. Out with the old, in with the new. In line with my semi-minimalist lifestyle, as new pieces come in, old pieces go out. I’m bored with my current wardrobe but I don’t like amassing clothing. Been there, never going that route again.
