Our #newyearsresolution is the same goal as our daily goal; to serve you better every each day. What is yours? •••••••••• #Repost @ashandbrooks ・・・ Before I get to posting all my Tokyo and Australia pics, I need to set some goals for the year! They’re pretty simple - learn more (a new hobby, read more books, learn from more boss ladies like this gem @jessomewhere), volunteer more (getting people registered to vote for midterms, especially those affected by voter suppression tactics), see more (the travel list is getting LONG, my friends), and give more, whether that’s more time, effort, donations, or love, I think we could all gain more by planning to give more first. Have you set new goals for 2018? • 📸: @orendasoul • Location @cafeterianyc #cafemedinyc • • • #ashandbrooks #newyork_ig #newyorknewyork #newyorkers #newyorkcitylife #nyclife #nyc🗽 #nyc_explorers #sheisnotlost #dametraveler #darlingescapes #topnewyorkphoto #nycskyline #nycdotgram #newyorklife #newyork_instagram #traveldeeper #tellon #letsflyawayto #wearetravelgirls #citynights #cityviews #onlyinnyc #lowereastside
