2019 Mood & 10 Intentions

 

2019

A year from now will be 2020, let that sink in for a second. Can you believe it? I’m slowly getting back into work mode over here. The last two weekends I’ve been cleaning; organizing until no end. A few days down for the count with a stomach flu, and here we are at present day. 7 days late, but hey who’s counting. As soon as the Holidays are over i’m ready to sling shot straight into Spring. Fellow New Englanders can feel me on this one. We haven’t had snow yet, but I can feel it coming.

I think it is important to remember when molding our resolutions, intentions, goals, dreams, whatever you want to call it - remember that life does happen, but you will get there. Throughout the process remember to be grateful, live in the moment and embrace the journey that it takes you on.

So here we have it, my intentions of focus this year…

1..EXPERIENCES OVER THINGS

Always. I will admit, I like shiny things - but I love the thrill of a good adventure more. Whether it be hopping on a plane to a new destination, trying a new dish in the kitchen or a new workout class on the weekend - let this be the year of expanding the horizons.

2.. PHOTOGRAPHY

Photography completely intrigues me. Capturing moments and places in a unique perspective, held forever. I’ve dabbled (and loved) the process through the last few years on our trips here and there - i’m ready to amp it up to the next level. Sorry to my wallet in advance </3

3.. DO WHAT YOU WANT TO

Watch this video. More of this. Do what you want to, what feels good, and not what society is telling you to do/buy/look like - etc.

4.. BE INTENTIONAL

This is more of a reminder to continue this practice and mindset. Focusing on food, where I shop, what I buy, people I spend my time with; where my energy is going.

“ These daily questions help: How does this add value? Does this serve me? Is this a need or want? ”

5.. BECOME A WINEO

I mean if i’m drinking it all the time, why not right?!

6.. PLAN AN EPIC 2020 TRIP

Where will you be when 2020 drops?! A bit dramatic, but i’m dreaming of the Alps - or - a warm sandy beach.

7.. TRAVEL. TRAVEL. TRAVEL

On the wishlist this year: Portugal, Colombia, Miami, British Colombia, Switzerland, a very hot island: TBD; local weekend getaways.

8.. CONTENT

You’ll be hearing a lot more of me around here!

Moving into 2019 I’ll be focusing strongly on Travel & Design & Lifestyle. Ref. #2 - looking forward to sharing quality content through my {soon to be} new hobby. Oh and Videos - yup, i’m doing it. Our trip to Greece last summer I did a Vlog (POST PENDING) and I lovvvvvved the process. It’s a beautiful way to tell a story of the journey. On the daily you can catch me on @nicole__toland.

9.. SOMETHING GOOD IS COMING

That’s all I’ll say for now, but trust me - It’s gonna be good!

10.. HATSSSS

A very serious intention over here. 5 years ago you, you may have called this one of my shopping addictions - I would have called it, I don’t have adult bills yet so cheers to another addition to my collection. Last weekend on my extensive cleaning ventures I noticed my collection has dwindled down next to nothing. This year I aspire to be like Veronica Valencia and get my serious hat game on.

How will you expand your horizons this year?
