Well, here we are. 2015 is in the past, and we are now in the year 2016.
When thinking about what to write for my first post in 2016 it was quite hard. But I was thinking it's the season for resolutions, right?!? I should probably just on the bandwagon and do a resolutions post. So we are. I know resolutions are just well intended promises that usually happen for a handful of weeks. and others don't even try to do them, and just think they are silly.
I will say I am probably both of those people described above. But I still believe that there's nothing wrong with want to try and better ourselves. So here I go to listing some of the resolutions I am going to work on this next year.
1. Go With The Flow.
Since I was a kid people would remind me that I need to go with the flow. I had and still do have a hard time when plan change. Of course, with growing up it has gotten easier for me to adapt and accept changes. But it doesn't mean it has gotten any easier for me to do. I think its important to be more relaxed person who goes with the flow. I get anxious sometimes if things don't go the way I expect them to. So in 2016 I want to remind myself how lucky I am. This should help me come to terms with change and realize that its not the end of the world, after all.
2. Make an Effort to Keep in Touch With Friends.
Wether you have friends from your childhood that you have lost touch with, or you have friends that you just meet, its important to put effort into all of your friendships. I want to make it a point to reach out to them whether its just to catch up over the phone or its to make plans. For me, it is easier to lose touch with people. I spend a lot of time with my daughter and husband and tend to forget about the people I don't see on a daily basis. I want to change this in 2016.
3. Take Care of Myself.
This might look different for everyone. For me this is taking time for myself and pampering me. This includes getting ready in the morning. Taking time to shave my legs once and while. Getting my nails done.
Before having out daughter, I would make sure I was put together on a daily basis. It made me feel prettier. I was always prepared for what the day was going to bring me. So I want to try to continue to take care of myself in 2016. Whether its a little or big thing.
4. Be Present.
I know. This task might be impossible with
The list could go on forever. These items about pulls my attention. Tatum will be playing happily, and I will just want to take a quick peek to see wants going on. I do this more than I should admit. But those moments? The everyday ones are the most important. As a family we will always remember the trips, and the holidays, and the birthdays. But when my daughter is older, I want to remember her playing with her dolls and giving me kisses all day long.
Those are just a few resolutions I am going to work on in 2016.
What are your resolutions for this upcoming year?!?
