As the clock strikes midnight and we ring in the New Year, it serves as the perfect opportunity to reshape ourselves, to change at least one thing (no matter how big or small) as we head into 2016. Perhaps you’ve always wanted to try something that you’ve not had the courage to do before, or finally learn how to use all your iPhone features (3D touch, anyone?). Well, here’s your chance, and to give you a little inspiration we thought we’d share five of our own New Year’s resolutions with you (and check out our MarkMakers’ resolutions below).
1. See more gigs at venues across the country and show support for the live experience. Because there’s a distinct difference between listening to your favorite records and going to see an artist live. It also helps ensure iconic venues are financially supported to host more great shows in the future.
2. Donate time to a cause close to your heart Get more involved in a local community project that helps those less fortunate than ourselves – because we’re all in this together.
3. Finally make those recipes you posted on Pinterest 3 months ago. We don’t know about you, but we pin with reckless abandon on our Pinterest boards, but then rarely get around to making anything we’ve saved. This year, finally take advantage of those pins (or your long to-do list that never seems to end) and take action. Those cupcakes in a mason jar aren’t going to decorate themselves.
4. Be more fashionably experimental. That means not being afraid to 1. purge your closet and 2. wear a new style, be it a bold boot that you’ve always loved or that luxurious jacket you bought but still “haven’t found the right time” to wear. Now’s the time. Plus, it’s always good to make a statement.
We’ve worked alongside some of the most creatively talented individuals over the past year whose stories undoubtedly inspire those around them. We reached out to our MarkMakers to find out exactly what they wanted for themselves in 2016.
