2018 Goals

Happy New Year Friends! I wish I could say we had a huge fun party on New Years Eve, but we didn't lol We traveled. We drove all day and got home right before midnight and went to bed 😂 Hopefully that's not a reflection of our new year.

The new year snuck up on me. Part of me feels like I should continue half of my goals from last year 😅 But the other part thinks I need to move on ha ha.

This year I am going to have fewer goals. I am hoping that by having less goals I will be able to better focus on the ones I have.

1.) Simplify - Minimalize. (Is that a real word?)
I want to simplify my life. I want to simplify my home as well. This is a constant struggle for me. I feel like this goal can never be "completed" just improved upon. Every time I turn around there is more I need to simplify or go through. I feel like our home is easier to keep clean when I am good at going through our things. I like the peace in keeping things simple and minimalizing our surroundings.

 2.) Be in the moment.
I want to enjoy the here and now. I often struggle with overthinking and worrying about the future. I want to slow down and enjoy the moments as they come. I want to take in the moments I have with my kids. I want to remember the fun times we had and not the stress and worry. My kids are only kids once and they are growing up so fast. I don't want to look back and feel like I missed out on really enjoying my time with them. I want to know I was really there.

3.) Be Thankful.
That doesn't mean that I am currently not thankful. But to be honest, sometimes I focus too much on wanting more. Sometimes I regrettably find myself comparing myself or things to others. While I don't feel that I am horrible at this, I do feel that I have much room to improve. I don't want to be that person. I want to live a life of gratitude, spend less time worrying about myself, and more time helping others. I feel like we are greatly blessed. We can do more to help and lessen the burdens of others.

Thank you for following along. I hope your new year is full of health and happiness!
