.keep going.

We are at the end of the month.
How are your new year's resolutions holding up?

I personally did not have any specific resolutions for the new year, but I did want to go back to working out consistently. I have noticed a lot of memes on instagram and twitter making fun of people who have already given up on their goals for the new year. I think these memes are really sad because I feel that they only do more harm by further discouraging those who have been struggling to commit to their goals in the first place.

I also believe that social media makes it easy to compare ourselves to those that are doing better and this makes us forget that we need to solely focus on being better than yesterday. Who is to say those "successful" people you are comparing yourself to haven't had any setbacks? You can get to where you want to be as long as you keep going. Who cares if it's been 2 days, a week, or even years! You guys have no idea how many breaks I have taken from blogging. Every slump was definitely discouraging, but I always came back with so much excitement and determination. What are your tips for staying on track with your goals?

Speaking of set backs, I took these pictures 2 weeks ago when I went to San Diego and I am barely posting! It is also strange looking back at these pictures where I am wearing a sweater, scarf and boots when the weather is currently much warmer. I will admit that I threw this scarf over my shoulders this way because I don't know how to style oversized/blanket scarves. I really loved this simple and cozy outfit, except that my sweater folded in at the bottom and I did not realize it until now. My husband photographer takes his job very seriously and is usually too focused on getting a quality photo to point out flaws like messy hair, untucked blouses, etc... His commitment is on point. 





I hope you've all had a lovely month of January! Thank you for stopping by!

Much Love,
PerlaGiselle

  2. You look gorgeous Perla! I set goals, but I don't make resolutions. I find making resolutions pressuring. I agree I think those types of memes do more harm than good! Have a wonderful February!

    1. I agree with you! Sometimes resolutions are not realistic enough and I think that's why people end up giving up.

  6. I agree that we can easily fall into a comparison trap when we spend a lot of time online. It's important to remember that what we see online is not always real.

  13. Hey Perlita, hope you're having a fantastic beginning of 2019! I was off for a little bit but now I'm back to blogging :)

    This post reminded me when I started blogging, so many years ago, and I began to think about how the issue of digital content has changed and I think the important thing is to make content that really inspires others, right? Love your outfit by the way, hope you're enjoying the first months of your baby :)

    All the best

  14. Can I first say that I adore the color of the jumper and the boots? It is still very cold here in Germany, so I need all the layers.
    My resolutions are coming along well, although they weren´t exactly New Years ones, but ones that I made in the weeks before the calendar changed. Like you said: Just keep going!

  22. Social media can indeed be very discouraging if people let it be. We should just all do our thing and not worry about what other people think as long as it's right for us. I'm so jealous that it's already warmer in your part of the country. This look is so chic and cozy and that shade of red is gorgeous on you Perlita!

  23. You look so gorgeous and I love the burgundy in your outfit! You are 100% right about focusing on being better than you were yesterday. It can be so easy to get caught up in the comparison game on social media, but everyone has their own challenges. I hope you have a wonderful February and good luck with your resolutions! You got this girl!

  26. Aww you look incredible babe! It is a shame that people compare themselves too much. I honestly just stop paying attention to others on social media. I barely watch Insta Stories and only follow accounts that inspire and motivate me to be my very best.

  27. Really, these demotivating memes are not cool to see. Everyone has their time and the process is also important. I strongly agree that the main thing is to try "being better than yesterday".
    I liked your pictures in San Diego, you look beautiful.
    And I also don't know how to wear scarves haha, but I think you got it right because the look was great!

  32. so true! I have been seeing those memes too and if I did have grand goals I couldn't accomplish they would definitely bum me out! But I've learned from so many failed resolutions that I just don't make them anymore lol!

  34. I love this burgundy shade on you- and I totally know where your husband is coming from; my best friend takes my photos and she's normally so focused adjusting the settings that she can miss things like a tag sticking out, haha.

  38. This outfit is gorgeous, you look stunning! I love how you've matched the colours together, and the boots are awesome! Also, I find myself trying to sort out too many goals and then I stress out about not meeting them all, so just trying to be better than yesterday is something I should keep to.

    Have a great rest-of-week :)
