To new beginnings, and a fabulous 2018!
Oh, 2017. There were ups and downs, as there will be every year, but if I learned anything, it’s that I am tired of not focusing on my goals and making my dreams a reality!
I have two toddlers, and they are crazy (just like me), and very set on enjoying their life to the fullest. I envy their lack of worry for the future, and I aim to work on being more present this year; especially when it comes to playing with my kiddos. They are the loves of my life, after all. ^_^
I have learned that I am very, very human. I am reminded this every year, of course (make that every day), but this year felt different. It felt eye-opening, and it has caused me to truly look at myself and decide if this is the woman I really want to be moving forward. And guess what; it’s not who I want to be.
There are amazing traits in each being, and I have become very aware of how poorly I treat myself. I look at my daughter, and see that if I want her to feel empowered and able, I have to set an example for her.
So here it is, my new year’s resolution in one sentence; To stop holding myself back!
If it means giving up negative and poisonous thoughts, I have to do it.
If it means giving up procrastination and laziness, I have to do it.
If it means diving in to an ocean of opportunities, despite my fears of not being good enough, I have to do it.
If it means going to therapy and reconciling my past, I have to do it.
If it means ignoring all the excuses in my head, I have to do it.
Life is a treasure and a gift, and it is worth fighting for!
I am excited to delve into 2018 with you all, and I would love to hear your resolution(s) as well! =)
To an incredible year, filled with gratitude and momentum!
