I don't believe in resolutions. It seems I have a hard time keeping them. But I think every day is an opportunity to grow yourself. This year I decided to write down a few simple goals. Maybe posting to the blog will hold me accountable?
My plans for this year include:
Wanting Less Things
Oh and more laughing!
That was the quick and dirty of my plans for 2013.
So now for a note about 2012. This past year may have been our best year yet. We welcomed our beautiful healthy son this past summer, and NOTHING on Earth could put into words what that feels like. Awesome, incredible, fulfilling. I don't have the words. I'm humbled by the incredible feat my body conquered by bringing a baby into this world. I'm amazed at how little sleep you actually need to survive. I'm overcome with love for my husband and son. I'm blown away by watching my baby grow.
But as wonderful as it is, and as beautiful as our year looks in pictures, I can do better. I spent too much time wanting new things, wishing I was in California, and wishing my pregnancy away. I was ready to meet that baby. I hope to be more in the moment, more appreciative of simple things, and the joys my boys bring me. I want this blog to be a reflection of an AUTHENTIC person. Humble, happy, THANKFUL.
Cheers to you and yours, being in the moment, and to a brand new year!
