Happy New Year!
Well, it is officially 2019! The new year always makes me hopeful and excited for a fresh start. I don’t like to make resolutions per se, but I do set goals for myself every year. Last year I set 5 goals for myself (you can read what they were HERE) but that seems like a lofty goal for this year. Especially knowing my world will be turned upside down in 4 short months when our girls arrive! So, this year I set three goals for myself, which I think is more realistic. And something about putting my intentions out on the internet helps hold me accountable and gives me extra motivation to stay on track during the year!
Appreciate The Moments
This is my biggest goal for 2019. I am a total worry-wart and I often find myself envisioning every possible scenario of things that could go wrong. This has prevented me from enjoying living in the moment so many times. I have gotten better over the years, but I really want to be intentional about appreciating every day moments in 2019. It is going to be a really big year for our family and I want to enjoy it, even through the challenges and hardships that will come. I know that being a twin mom will be a huge adjustment but I am making it my goal to enjoy as many moments as I possibly can. Even through the sleepless nights and days when I am trying to keep my head above water. I don’t want to look back and wish I had enjoyed the first year of the girls’ life more.
Write In My Gratitude Journal Every Day
This was one of my goals last year and I am happy to say that I wrote in my gratitude journal every day of 2018. It kept me focused on positive things even on some really hard days. There were a few days that I was grateful for “a yummy cheeseburger” or “going to bed early” but hey, it just goes to show there is always something to be grateful for! I am planning to tackle this goal again in 2019!
Focus On My Blog
I love this little blog of mine and it has been a great creative outlet for me. It’s also therapeutic and I enjoy writing and documenting my experiences. Last year I took a bit of a hiatus from my blog because I was overwhelmed and I wasn’t sure exactly what I wanted this space to be. After I finally figured it out (read that post HERE) I am really hoping to use 2019 to focus on creating new and interesting content, while still chronicling my own personal journey. So, thank you in advance for popping in and supporting me!
These may seem like simple goals, but they will definitely keep me busy this year. Their purpose is also to keep me focused on all of the positives in life and soaking them all in. 2019 is going to be a big year and I can’t wait to experience it 100%
What are your goals for 2019?
