New Years Non-Goals

One of my favorite blogs, The City Sage written by Anne Sage, imitated Erin Loechner who writes Design for Mankind, in composing a list of New Years "Non-Goals" - habits and whatnot that you want to continue in the new year. So, inspired by these two women, I am going to do the same thing. 

Dagny, way to follow your passions this year and convince yourself to do something you always thought of, but never pursued - writing a fashion blog. It's difficult to put your ideas out there and I am proud of you for following what you enjoy most: talking about fashion. And, as luck would have it, it is one of the most fun things you do each day.

Dagny, a real strength of yours is your ability to be flexible in your conception of yourself. From thinking you would be a doctor back in high school, to thinking television production, to admissions officer and then assessing your strengths and being honest about what you loved, which has led you to the idea of fashion sales or marketing. Keep following what you love and the right opportunities and people will come your way.

Dagny, 2010 was a big year in that you learned to say no. You saw that saying no is so much harder than saying yes, and even when it comes with costs, sometimes it needs to be said. Setting boundaries makes you a stronger person, and when you can set boundaries in a relationship, that relationship becomes stronger.

Enjoy 2011 and make it the best one yet.
