Happy New Year Amigos! I know I’ve been MIA on the blog, but as you know, you can always follow my travel adventures and outfits on Instagram. I left Abu Dhabi early in December and since then I’ve been in Miami, Colombia, Aruba and Jackson Hole over the holidays. Every year, Tom and I write down our top 10 goals and share them with each other. Writing them down keeps us on track as the months go by. This year, I want to share my top 5 goals and resolutions with all of you…a bit personal, but I’m excited to hear your feedback.
Self Care: A bit corny? Over the past year, I’ve been in the ER two times, one with food poisoning (I couldn’t even walk) and the other time for pneumonia. In addition, I’ve had a cold about 5 times…In the near year, I want to focus on my health and fitness. I know partially it’s my fault for traveling every two weeks and exhausting myself with work, but I want to focus on my health and boosting my immune system. Eating healthier, working out on a consistent basis, drinking less alcohol (only on the weekends) and taking vitamins.
In addition I want to loose about 6 – 8 kilos! HAHAH again, personal. Since moving to Abu Dhabi, I’ve gained over 8 kilos! Again, the constant jet lag and eating between planes and airports does not help. I want to focus on loosing those extra kilos, working out every day, and maintaining a routine. I’ve heard great things abut the BBP, but if any of you have any other suggestions I’m all ears.
Doing good for others: This is something I continuously think about as I travel around the world and think about my hometown of Venezuela. Either giving an extra tip to a waiter, donating to a GoFundMe campaign that resonates with you, sponsoring a child, or donating your time for a good cause. This year I want to focus on doing good for others that need it the most. After sharing these thoughts with my family, my younger brother mentioned, “Compassion International.” Tom and I will be sponsoring a young children from South America. I will make sure to update all of you on this.
Growing Soraya Hennessy: After a year and half Soraya Hennessy is stocked in some of the most prestigious websites in Europe such as Luisa Via Roma (starting in early Spring), Stylebop and luxury hotels such as The One and Only. This year, I want to focus on growing our presence in the US. I want to be bold and share that my goals are to grow my online sales at sorayahenenssy.com and be stocked in some of my favorite US sites such as Moda Operandi, Shopbop and Revolve.
Visit two new countries: It is no secret Tom and I love to travel…! This year we want to visit two new countries, perhaps South Africa, Sri Lanka, or Cambodia??? We want to continue sharing our travels with all of you and we want to continue creating drone videos and unique content.
Personal Growth: In addition to focusing on my health and fitness I want to focus on being more patient…a better daughter, sister and wife. There’s always room for improvement!
I would love to hear your feedback on my goals and resolutions bove and don’t be shy to share any of your goals below. Thank you for reading!
