January 2016 Letter from the Editor
"It's a fresh start," those the words of my friend and former therapist Mary. Every time there is a fresh start coming up in my life - a move, the new year, (hell, even a Monday); I see it as a fresh start, and I hear her voice along with it.
Whether you're all about the New Year's resolutions, or you're from the school of thought that we should be our best year round, there is no denying that a fresh start gives us a little extra boost. It provides an extra boost of motivation and optimism...a resolve to reach our goals. And anyone who is a so-called expert on success will tell you that it is crucial to set measurable goals and to have a clear picture of your starting point and desired end point, with smaller and clearly-defined goals along the way. A simple way to set both short and long-term goals is with a pretty new planner. Pictured above: Vera Bradley 2016 Agenda
Each month, and with each new Editor's Letter, I find myself thinking of a word - a word that defines my overall feelings and thoughts for the coming month. This time I find myself thinking of "hope." With all of the other New Year's posts out there, I see a common theme, one of hope. We're all hoping to have a better year for 2016. We're hoping to be better and do better than we did last year. And while setting goals and getting realistic about working towards those goals is crucial, a good place to start is with hope. Because hope doesn't rely on where you've been or where you're at right now. It relies solely on faith that some things can be better, even if it's simply how you handle the things that may not change.
What to Expect This Month
On krisztinawilliams.com for the month of January; I plan to add more travel posts, motivational blogs, healthy recipes, winter fashion, fresh home decor ideas, and of course Valentine's Day posts for next month. I will also be working on a separate wedding blog as I plan my own wedding this year.:) I'll share the link when it's ready to share.
