The official start of 2017 has begun for me as I am back to work. And yes I am still getting used to writing 2017 instead of 2016 and no I have not made any mistakes (yet). For 2017 I have decided to use ,live,breathe and become a #GirlBoss.
First things first …
Happy 2017 !
May the year ahead be filled with loads of amazing experiences , laughter and memories. I wish you enough of everything and may you become a #GirlBoss.
Thinking back to 2016 it was a good year but there was several lessons along the way which have been invaluable in preparing me for 2017. Last year I wrote about 2016 as a year for #SelfCare. I tried for most for the year to fulfill my goals and to look after myself. In the process life threw me all sorts like a box of chocolates BUT I survived.
So for this year, my theme is to own it like a #GirlBoss.
What is a #GirlBoss ?
In my own words ….
A #GirlBoss is one who dreams big, works hard and never gives up. One who knows her worth and does not wait for things to happen BUT is actually the fire starter.
The first time I came across this term was in the form of an awesome book by Sophia Amoruso, called #GirlBoss. A quick and easy read filled with pearls of wisdom.
It is important to start the year on a clean slate and set some goals for the year ahead. For me personally I like setting a variety of different goals that are attainable and are focused on different areas of my life.
