I’m certainly one for setting goals. I love to write something down, track my progress, and ultimately check it off one of my many, many lists. So, as you may assume, I’m usually pretty big on New Year’s Resolutions. However, this year setting goals similar to the ones I usually set like “eat better” or “wear less black” didn’t seem to cut it. It’s 2020—the year I’ve been waiting for my entire life. The year I graduate college and enter the real world. The year I really get to start fighting tooth and nail to make it in the fashion industry. It’s a very big year. So I’ve realized that this year is more about a mindset than a list of goals with little check boxes next to them.
The year that lies ahead will hopefully be full of many monumental moments—college graduation, my first “big girl” job and my first “big girl” apartment—to name a few. It’ll be a year full of both reflection and anticipation as I push towards my future while looking back on the dreams that have gotten me this far already. It’s going to be a year of excitement, but also one with a lot of uncertainty—which I’m trying to prevent myself from getting too caught up in. I know this upcoming year will cause me to rely on my senses of determination and motivation as I work towards those big milestones but I’m reminding myself to do so while also stopping to enjoy the journey from time to time (since I’m usually one to go go go until whatever goal at hand is achieved). 2020 will inevitably be a year of change for me so I’m hoping to spend more time living in the present moment instead of being so laser-focused on what’s ahead. And while change can be scary, I think it’s one of the best places to find inspiration.
Below is my 2020 moodboard. Enjoy.
