Manifesting 27

This is my first official blog post for EverydayZandy! I shared this site with the world one week ago on my birthday. Now I am officially 27 and ready for the year ahead! I love the idea of a new years resolution but I don’t want to wait for 2021. I’m starting now and manifesting what I want to accomplish while being 27. What is manifestation to me? I think of it as something you hope and dream for yourself, a positive action you choose to achieve in a certain amount of time. You write it down, think it, dream it, and wholeheartedly believe it will happen. I genuinely feel that if you stay positive, positivity will follow you. 

What am I trying to manifest and achieve as a 27 year old:

At the beginning of this year I wanted to change my perspective and committed to living a healthier lifestyle. For years I have worked on losing weight and changing my eating habits but nothing ever stuck long term. After taking time to think, and several self help resources, I changed my mindset from looking better to feeling better. Don’t get me wrong, I love who I am, but right now my choice to feel better is my own. It’s for me and no one else. And that was a hard mindset to figure out. To live a healthier lifestyle I have decided to focus on self confidence, mental health, skincare, and working out. I’ve come up with a few small steps on how best to achieve these manifestations:

  • Self confidence, not worrying about what other people think of me or my ideas.
  • Mental health, to focus on the things in life that make me happy and not get lost in what I can’t control.
  • Skincare, to create a routine and take time for myself at the beginning and end of every day.
  • Working out, concentrate on how I feel before, during, and after I exercise. How can this help me in my everyday life.  

When Covid hit and I was furloughed from work I felt like I had lost purpose. I couldn’t go outside, see my friends or family, and I had no routine. The world started to change rapidly and I felt like things were spinning out of my control. Several months later and we still don’t know what is going to happen – that’s why I want to focus on the areas of my life that I do have control over.

  • I want to gain more skills in areas that I am passionate about. What can I learn to make me a better person.
  • To me, bringing my blog to life means sharing my voice, ideas, tips, photos, etc. with everyone. Any way I can help others with their everyday lives.
  • I want to try to live everyday as a new day, a fresh start. There are times where I will find myself in the moment only to later find myself somewhere else thinking of what I want to cook for dinner. I am always anticipating what the future holds and the various outcomes of a decision. That can be exhausting!

It’s ok to stumble or miss a day so long as I keep taking steps in the right direction. That’s what I am trying to teach myself this year. It doesn’t have to be perfect, it doesn’t have to be complete, but I can be proud of myself for trying.

You don’t have to wait until 2021 or your birthday to start a resolution for yourself. It can be any day or month of the year, it’s what works best for you. I hope this inspires some of you to start something new and to put more focus on yourself. I challenge you to choose one thing to start today. It could be something small, like making your bed in the morning, drinking a glass of water when you wake up, or reading a book before you fall asleep. Can’t wait to keep you updated on how things are going, but for now just remember, every day is a new day.

  1. I definitely don’t think I’m ready to commit to making my bed every morning, but I want to start being more active tracking what I’m eating on an app. And I’m doing it because I love doing it and I love how I feel when I do! Doin’ it for me and me only! That’s my challenge…. ….but can I start tomorrow instead of today? Haha.

    Love the post, can’t wait to keep reading!
