New Year’s Resolutions

I’ve had it with 2020!

What a year!

I’m so glad it’s behind us.

I’ve been giving some serious thought to life improvements that I want to see in 2021.

To begin with, I downloaded Acorn, a spare change savings tool to help me spend less money and invest more.

AND TO THAT END, I also downloaded Robinhood, so I can invest in stocks.

It’s funny how something as simple as improving one’s finances can seem like such a steep hill to climb when you don’t have the resources.

Well, my friend Nadine was the one who started me on it.

Nadine is a tax accountant and she convinced me that it’s time to start investing.

Not just in my retirement account – which is on track – but also to make extra money.

Seriously, I LOVE my Strawberry Dress but I could’ve spent the money in a better way by investing in Tesla, or Apple.

Anything, really.

The other New Year’s resolution I have is to stop aging.

That’s right, I’m sick and tired of the wrinkles developing on my face.

I’ve been following some TikTok dermatologists and I’ve picked up a few tips from them:  including a regimen to lighten dark spots, even out skin tone, and diminish fine lines and wrinkles: Differin Gel for deep pore cleansing, 10% kojic acid for improving sun spots, 10% azelaic acid for improving and evening out skin tone, hyaluronic acid for hydration, and retinol for all the little wrinkles showing up on my face.

My final resolution is to spend half the time I spent looking for a mate on getting in shape.

I plan to totally ignore my Tinder and Bumble accounts and instead focus on healthy eating habits with my sister on our mutual Optavia diet.

Every time I get the urge to reach out and text a strange man I met online, I’m going to INSTEAD spend some time checking out my investments, researching new opportunities, or going for a walk.

I also made a resolution to improve my friendships by focusing on being supportive, caring, and available.

Seeing as how I won’t be online using Bumble or Tinder, that should provide me with plenty of time to focus on the people I love who mean everything to me.

And that’s the end of my New Year’s resolutions for 2021.

Wish me luck!
