We all know that January is a month for establishing goals, new beginnings, and good habits. We also know it’s sometimes challenging to stick to the own expectations we create for our self. No matter how charmed (or challenging) life can be, New Year’s always gives me the feeling of a fresh start. I want to think of this month as a way to set the tone for the rest of the year. I want to set both big and small goals that motivate me to keep growing. Some I could obtain tomorrow, others in six months. Either way, I don’t want this to be just a phase. Between all the blessings and the lessons of 2013, I learned that God has a better plan for me than I ever had for myself. As I jump into 2014, I want to share my resolutions and aspirations with you (hopefully you find some inspiration in them too!).
I’m going to work harder at:
Making time for more exercise (preferably outdoors).
A food I want to eat more of:
Veggies! No more eating off the kid’s menu.
A bad habit I’m going to break:
Leaving myself too little time to get ready!
I’d like to spend more time:
Golfing & Reading.
I want to wear more:
Stripes & Sequins. A girl can never have enough!
I could sit here all day and pin point every little part of my life that needs improvement, but that’s just the nit-picker in me (I will spare you the time). Mostly for 2014, I want to create adventure and remember joy! I want to choose optimism. Whether I am traveling the world, jumping out of planes, swimming with the sharks, or in my everyday routine- there is always an adventure if I just change my perspective! Slow down and notice the little things, go unplugged for an hour a day, take chances, be spur of the moment, step outside of your comfort zone, compliment the random person walking down the street, dance the dance, make a new friend, and don’t be afraid to look ridiculous. Life’s too short to worry about what other people think and honestly they’re probably thinking they’d like to join you!
POP, FIZZ, CLINK, CHEERS TO 2014! It’s going to be the best one yet.
