Happy 2017.

We are so blessed and thrilled for the amount of support Modish Mitten has gotten this past year. We never thought launching a year ago we would be where we are today.

We wanted to share  our top 3 resolutions and goals for the upcoming year. Writing these down and sharing these publicly last year helped us so much to stay on track-we wanted to do this again.

Hope you enjoy,
Danielle & Katie


Resolution 1: Better Mind, Better Spirit
This year I am continuing to make it a goal and priority to better myself mentally and spiritually. I learned the hard way last year to never let your mental health slack. With some stresses and anxieties, I realized there was a lot to learn on how to mange your mental state of mind. I have been through hell and high water and learned that when your in a great mindset, your positive outlook on your future will soar. :)

Going on the theme of bettering my mind, I want to make it a strong priority to read more and Netflix less. I am a firm believer that educating yourself should never stop. I want 2017 to be a year where I actually finish my "must read" list!

Resolution 2: Find A New Hobby
With this blog came the desire to foster new hobbies. Whether it be video editing or photography, I want to spend time in 2017 bettering myself in these semi-unfamiliar territories. I feel this will not only better Modish Mitten, but focus my extra energy and efforts on something beneficial.

Resolution 3: Create a Travel Plan
Who doesn't want to "travel more"? This year I want to create a plan. I am "OCD" by nature which probably doesn't surprise most people. I want to make it a goal this year to plan out my finances, time and efforts for some travel adventures. Whether near or far, this will help me stay organized and make these actually happen.

I decided to take a different approach to resolutions for 2017. I’ll be the first one to admit that my resolutions usually last about half the year, if that, before I start to lose motivation for whatever I had planned. And typically when the end of the year comes around and I think back to my original resolutions, I end up disappointed that I didn’t stick with it. So this year I’m doing something different. I making some what of a bucket list for the year. Things that I can check off as the year goes on without the pressure of fulfilling these year long goals that seem too intimidating. So here goes…

This year.

A good habit I’m going to build:

A new skill I’d like to learn:
How to change a tire by myself

A good deed I’m going to do:
Give genuine compliments to friends, strangers, family..anyone!

A place I’d like to visit:

A book I’d like to read:
The Chemist

A new food I’d like to try:
Chicken and waffles

I’m going to do better at:
Meal prep

What are your goals for 2017?
