3 Reasons Why Self-Reflection is Crucial to Making the Most Out of Every Experience // life updates

They say new year is a time to set new goals and resolutions.

Me? I believe that setting goals is important, but it is as crucial as reflecting on our own past. Sometimes making resolutions and reflections can be stressful for you, and that’s okay – trust me, I understand completely. I’m always on the look for ways to be a productive potato all awhile maintaining my own personal wellness and not working itself overload.

Today, I’m going to share some reasons why I feel self – reflection is important, and how those may help make the process less stressful. I hope that you’ll find one or two points that may be of use to you! I know that I’m only sharing 3 points, but I feel like they are important ones that have inspired me, and hopefully they’ll do the same to you.

Let’s dive right in, shall we?

2018 In Review: Most Memorable + Least Memorable Moments of 2018 ft. lots of screaming, revelations + sentiments

Y’all, it’s December. Aka last month of the year.

I’m still (extremely) confused as to how time works, because it seems like it was just yesterday that I screamed about how 2017 was going to end*? Is it just me when I say that sometimes 1 hour feels like forever yet looking back at a month seems like 5 minutes? Oh, I don’t know what time is anymore.

Anyways, since it’s the last month of the year do we need to be reminded again lol, instead of doing a Farewell November and December post (month wrap-up), I’ll be splitting it all AND including notable moments of 2018 into several posts as a mini-series called 2018 In Review!

Now, may I invite all to witness Kimberly screaming (yet again) as she struggles to remember what happened over the last 365 days. It’s fun to watch, really.

Farewell October // more school stress + textiles fashion design sketching + 300 followers (??)

So. Apparently it’s the second last month of 2018 and it is slightly concerning.

It’s kind of scary when you think that a day of school lasts forever but an year is over like a snap like Thanos*?? Is anyone else also having an existential crisis.

Hello lovelies, happy Thursday 🙂 How are you all doing? Things are pretty complicated for me right now with school and such. Especially textiles. We just finished our designer garment bags, and now we’re moving on to our pants and designing our shirts.
