Happy New Year!

by Jennifer Thai in ,


2015 was such an adventure! There were so many wonderful memories, learning experiences and opportunities for growth, and most notably, I was able to grow This Jenn Girl into something so much greater than the year prior, and connect with the many bloggers who are now in my circle of blogger friends. Although I don't have much of a resolution this year, but rather a promise to continue being the best possible version of myself that I can, I want to take the time to feature my lovely fellow Tampa bloggers and their resolutions for 2016. I am so sure that it's going to be a wonderful year for all of us - cheers!


"My 2016 New Year's Resolution is to explore and really appreciate my city more. I love Tampa, but I often feel like I go to the same places and do the same things. This year I want to step out of my box and explore this awesome city, visit new places, try new things, go on more adventures. Attempting to be a tourist in my own hometown!" - Kathryn, Fashion Without The Fortune


"In 2016 I am going to try to focus more on the big picture and stop stressing over the tiny details, and put down my phone more!" - Briana, Neutral2Neon


"In 2016, I want to trust my gut. I spend too much time worrying, stressing and remaining comfortable. I want to do more of what makes me happy, while making the best of what doesn’t (because necessary evils exist). I also want to dedicate more time to personal growth. That means more insightful podcasts, books, and spending time with friends who inspire me. Too often I put off time with friends to focus on work that needs to be done, when the inspiration I need may lie in that coffee date." - Christina, The Blissful Balance


"When it comes to the start of a New Year there are three goals I always take time to remind myself of: Keep your heart and your mind open. Stop trying to tame your gypsy soul. Eat more pizza." - Audrey, Happily Audrey


"My New Years resolution is to be an inspiration to others whether it's through my blog A Daydream Love, social media, work, or my personal life!" - Rechael, A Daydream Love


"With encouragement from my hubby, I restarted Letters and Pearls back in September and it has been hands down, one of the best decisions I've made in 2015. Not only have I had amazing collaborations in a short period of time, but I've met incredibly talented bloggers who I now consider true friends. This community is like no other and I can't help, but feel so blessed. My New Year's Resolution for 2016 is to stay consistent, stay true to myself, and take Letters and Pearls to the level I know it can be. The best is yet to come and I am so ready!" - Jen, Letters and Pearls


"My resolution for this 2016 is to complete my first half marathon!" - Mary, What Sundays Are For


"My New Year's resolution is to be present. I often find myself getting wrapped up in planning for the future that I miss the moment. So, I'm going to try my best to not plan as much and be more spontaneous!" - Shauna, All Things Recessionista
