To be honest with you all, it has taken me a while to get up the motivation to write this post. I went on holiday and in a social media break and I really enjoyed. I went to Panama to spent time with my family and we even forgot to take pictures together. I really recharged energies and highly motivated to start this new year and define what I want to conquer this year.
But a small part of me was telling, why set up goals if there is so much uncertainty going around? But having specific goals for me, gives me something to work towards. That being said, I have really learned to consider what I can and cannot control when I set these goals.
So, here’s to another uncertain year, to working on myself, and to accomplishing my goals, no matter how small.
Do you have any similar goals for 2022? Leave one in the comments so we can hold each other accountable.
Invest time in training – Last year I started a new exciting role in my current company that is in the area I want to develop myself (Sustainability). As excited, I am I recognized that in order to continue to move up and develop myself I need to invest time in learning. Not only learning on the job, but also investing time in getting official learning. so, this year. I have already signup for my project management certification, so things look promising.
Diversify – even though I love skincare I’m also passionate of many other topics that I would like to share and exchange points of view and experiences with you. Therefore, I also would like to be more consistent with my post and define and plan a schedule to avoid weeks or months without content.
Start a newsletter – After a lot of thought, I’ve decided to turn my most fun posts into a monthly newsletter. It will be called The Spot and will have a summary of the monthly post and added info and resources. I would like to launch my first one i February so I need to sort it out quickly.

Invest in sustainable brands – I want to go beyond the traditional brands and start investing in pieces from brands that are making an effort to develop sustainable products.
