When I was in sixth grade I decided that my New Year’s resolution would be not to drink soda for the entire year. And for some reason, my 12-year-old self was incredibly dedicated to this resolution and I did not drink soda for all of 2003 (or was it 2004?). That was the last time I actually stuck to a New Year’s resolution.
It’s not that I’m a complete failure with zero willpower, it’s just I’ve never really set a resolution compelling enough to really follow through. But this year, I’m making a resolution that really resonates with me.
Live an instagrammable life.
Not only does this statement encourage me to achieve my goal of having a well-done instagram account (I don’t want to be insta-famous, I just want to take good pictures and use my instagram as a portfolio piece), but it means doing things that are worth instagramming. Perhaps I’ll visit museums, drink more espresso, dress better, make jewelry, hell, even buy more cute shoes – it doesn’t really matter what I do, but by living an “instagrammable” life, I will be pushing myself to do more with my free time, instead of watching 30 Rock for the eightieth time (I still love you, Tina).
That is my new mantra for 2015. Live an instagrammable life.
Secondary resolutions include: style blogging at least once a week, eating paleo 80 percent of the time, and studying French every time I consume wine (so at the rate I consume le vin, I should be fluent by March).
Cheers to 2015! XOXO.
