Hello 2014

Follow me on Instagram at @agirlnamedleney

So I originally intended to write a blog post at the first of the new year with all of my goals and resolutions for 2014 but as it turns out, making that list is taking more time than I realized...

This year I want to be more purposeful.
In a lot of things, but especially with my business.
Last year was the first year I really started to take everything work wise more seriously, and while it was an awesome year and I learned a lot, there's definitely room for some improvement.
Having a set work schedule for one thing.
This is something friends and family alike have advised me to create for myself (usually after I have a meltdown from the combination of not getting sleep, working until 4am knitting and editing photos and working all day everyday including weekends) and I kept putting it off and kept putting it off but now I'm finally going to make one and stick to it! Because I definitely can't keep going the way that I have been.

So the first few days of this new year have been spent reading lots of encouraging/instructional/inspiring articles and books, watching informational videos, meditating on what's important to me, what my passions and core values are, organizing my new calendar and making many many many lists (we all know I love my lists).
I'm actually really excited about this year and I have a really good feeling that making these new goals are going to do me a world of good.

So anyway, I'll be sharing my list of goals for 2014 soon, but in the meantime I'm enjoying figuring out what they're going to be.

What about you?
Do you have some resolutions and goals for the year?
I'd love to hear them!


  1. Happy new year! Your resolution & strategy sound great :)

    Mine is similar - to follow through more than i make plans to start something new & actually start creating a big girl routine.

  2. Happy 2014. I need to be more purposeful and get stuff done too! Mine is to complete my goals I made for my birthday, and to stop having technology by my bedside!
    Id love to know more about the articles and books you read to help towards your goals, I'm needing some help in that are too!
    Also, for some reason I really love that photo, saw it on instagram too!

  3. "Intentional" is the word that came to mind for me. I wish you luck and hope all the focus on the positives will carry through 2014! Best wishes.

  4. I still haven't made my resolutions list yet. There are things I know I want to do though and I'll make a list when the time is right. I did pick my words for 2014 and finally blogged about that but that took me awhile to even think of those. I hope you find a great work schedule that is exactly what you need!


Thanks for taking the time to comment! I may not have time to reply but I do read every single one and I appreciate the love:)
