New year, new goals!

One of my favorite things about a new year is that I can choose brand new goals to set for myself and start from scratch. I know that you can pretty much do this anytime you want, but there's something refreshing about starting over when you celebrate a new year; it feels like you're turning over a new leaf.

And with turning over a new leaf, it's wise to also take a look at life to figure out what you want less of, and what you want more of to make yourself the best you can be.

There are a lot of things you could say about 2017, but the most important thing you can say is that it's over.

2018 is new and it's so full of potential, you can just feel it.

And while you might not be the goal-setting type, especially when it comes to New Year's resolutions or the whole "turning over a new leaf" thing, you can still try to enhance your life with something equally as life-changing without labeling it.

Maybe you want to make new friends this year or focus more on tour career and health.

You don't have to call it a resolution, but rather something to help you be the best you that you can be.

Because 2018 is ALL about positivity, love, and happiness, so whatever you do to enhance your life this year should focus completely on those things.

And the most important thing to remember? Even if what you want more of in 2018 is friends or family time or support from others, don't forget that you're doing this all for yourself — not anyone else.

Remember that your goals should start and end with you; if you're not getting the most out of your goals this year, change them!

You can always start anew and a year like this one that's full of possibility is a great reminder that it's never too late to be the person you want to be.


What You're Dreading Most About 2018, Based On Your Zodiac Sign

Looking to astrology and reading about your zodiac sign is a great way to figure out exactly how 2018 will help you achieve this new you.

You might have already been feeling that change is in the air and this is your sign to start making things happen.

Depending on what your zodiac sign says about you, there might be a goal out there that's been waiting on you to discover it and be the best Pisces or Libra you can be.

I know I'm ready to set goals to make 2018 a good one, and I also know that I'm not alone.

So, if you're ready to turn over a new leaf and get the most out of this new year, keep reading to find out what each zodiac sign wants more of in 2018.

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

Aries, all throughout 2017 you reached your goals of getting ahead in your career and spending more time with your friends — and it shows. But now that it's a brand new year, you need to have brand new goals instead of doing the same old, same old again.

In 2018, you should be aiming for more affection and it definitely means intimacy. Don't you remember just how good it feels to have your hair stroked or lay beside someone and spoon?

Now that you've spent all last year succeeding, this year should be all about enjoying yourself with the company of someone special.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

Taurus, 2018 for you is all about polishing up those quality relationships. You already have a ton of friends who love you to death, so this year should be about making the relationships you have higher in quality — or even finding new people to create solid relationships and friendships with.

What makes your relationships high in quality is the fact that they aren't just built on the fact that you both like to party or share the same dislikes.

2018 is the year for positivity and love, so build your new relationships on being each other’s cheerleaders and having deeper conversations. You'll stimulate your mind and get to know someone inside and out this way.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

Gemini, 2017 might have been the year of enjoying yourself and treating yourself, but now you are really feeling it. Treating yourself doesn't have to include dark chocolate and champagne every weekend, you know.

In fact, taking care of yourself doesn't have to stop in 2018, but it should be a little more refined.

2018 should be your year for healthy pursuits. Join that yoga class you've been thinking about forever, eat healthier with a friend and be each other's accountability, or just take better care of your skin by doing face masks and drinking water.

There are a ton of ways to feel healthier and I guarantee by the end of this year, you'll be a brand new Gemini.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

Cancer, it's so easy for you to get caught up in taking care of others that, before you realize it, you don't have any time for yourself. That might have been your goal for 2017 — to cultivate your relationships more — but make 2018 all about YOU.

Make this year your most fun hear yet. You're only young once (or young at heart), so make sure that all of your downtime this year is spent on you and you alone. Sure, you can bring your BFF along with you, but make sure that you're going on that road trip or to that amusement park, instead of just saying "never mind" and putting it off until later - you deserve it!

LEO (July 23 - August 22)

Leo, you probably already have a long list of goals you want to check off before the end of 2018, but there are some things you might have forgotten about that are just as important as getting ahead in your career or meeting new people.

This year, you should make more time for family bonding. It's easy to forget that your family is just as important as your friends and romantic relationships, especially because you know they'll forgive you if your schedule gets too busy.

But whether you trek down there for the weekend or just give your fam a call, it'll make all the difference for your relationship with them.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

Virgo, you're a true believer in balancing work and play, but sometimes, you have to forgo one in order to make room for more of the other. For 2017, you did a lot more work than you did play.

So, for this new year, it's time to get back to that balance and have some serious fun.

In 2018, you want more social interaction. That means making more time for your BFFs, as well as going out on the weekends and meeting new people.

You'll never know who will inspire you to be a better you and who will end up being a new BFF, but whatever social interaction means to you, it's important to put yourself out there this year and have some fun.

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

Libra, 2017 was definitely a "treat yo'self" year for you and now you're probably starting to realize that you want something else out of life in 2018. In other words, you want money and lots of it.

So, it's time to freeze that credit card in some ice or get yourself a financial planner because this year is all about being more conscious about your spending habits.

It might be hard at first, trust me I know, but it's definitely worth it to see how much difference one year of hardcore saving can make.

Plus, if you ever need some motivation not to cave in so easily, just think about the fact that you can reward yourself at the end of the year with something you really want if you set some money aside for one big "treat yo'self" gift.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

Scorpio, there's no denying that you love to love, which you definitely did last year, but 2018 is the year for you to love yourself. It's important to remember that you don't need to be around people all the time and frankly, "me" time is a lot more important, especially for you this year.

Take the time to say "no" to people this year and not feel bad about it. You don't have to be a superhero and be able to squeeze in time for everyone, especially when it's important for you to remember to recharge your batteries, too.

Make time for yourself at least once a week, whether that means springing for a spa day or just shutting your alarms off, sleeping in, and ignoring your to-do list.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

Sagittarius, you've been doing your own thing for so long that it's going to feel a little foreign to switch it up this year, but it's definitely important.

While it's true that you have a lot of friends and family you can fall back on, you often choose to handle your own problems instead of reaching out for help.

In 2018, you should be looking for more support. Don't be afraid to ask for help or let your guard down in front of other people.

In fact, having a solid support system means the people who will see you in your vulnerable state won't judge you and will do all they can to make sure you stay the boss Sagittarius you've always been —just with more support and love.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

Capricorn, no one would disagree that you're a hardworking person who is determined to climb that ladder of success until you get where you're going.

But just remember that you have your entire life to get where you want to be — it isn't a race! Let 2018 be your year to take it down a few notches and not worry so much about your responsibilities.

This year, you want more friendships. Because you've been so locked into your career and success, it's been hard for you to make time for other people in your life.

Now, you can split your time equally between making friends and having fun, while still keeping up with your responsibilities and commitments, which will make your life that much more fulfilling.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

Aquarius, you have a tendency to see things as they really are, but only after the fact. So, even though 2017 felt full and happy in the moment, you might still wish you could have done more, now that the year is over.

2018 is going to be your year for success and happiness — which you'll start working on now so that you can see a real difference by the end of this year.

Whether you want to be more successful in your career, your health, or your relationships (or something else entirely), pick one and make it your focus for the new year.

As long as you dedicate yourself to what you want most in life, success will come to you easily.

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

Pisces, you've always had a big imagination and it's been the driving force to keep you going when times were stressful or rough.

You might have had big dreams in 2017 that you never had a chance to follow through with, but with every new year brings new opportunity.

In 2018, you want more adventure. Now is the time to take all of those daydreams and wishes and bring them into reality. If you want to travel and explore a new country, now is your time to do it.

If you want to try something that's always scared you, go for it! 2018 is your year to be brave and make memories by tapping into your adventurous side.
