Every New Year I make three goals. I don’t like to do more than three because I want to stay accountable for them all year long. I’ll usually pick one personal goal, one family goal and my last goal is a continuous one.
This year, my personal goal is to find balance. A lot of times I’ll try to over extend myself and I end up stressing out. I like everything to be done right and perfect. It doesn’t matter if it’s making lunches for the kids or planning a party. Everything I do small or big always has to be done to my standards. I always said, “if you are going to do something, do it right!” Yes, it’s a good characteristic to have, BUT if you’re not balanced and sometimes don’t let things go, you’ll end up being a stress ball. I’ve learned prioritizing life is the best way to have a balanced life!
My family goal is to continue to build my relationships with my husband and kids. I LOVE how my husband and I do at least 2 date nights a month. And, every other month we’ll usually do a staycation at a hotel near by. Having two kids has made it more challenging for us to have “our time,” but since we started doing date nights, it’s helped us to communicate and be on the same page. We’ll share our dreams, talk about the kids and just enjoy the moment without any interruption. It’s like a glimpse of life before the kids! Hahaha!
My last goal is usually always the same … it’s to be grateful. I live everyday to the fullest and should I not be here tomorrow, I know I have no regrets. I live by this quote… “Life is what you make of it.” So if you want to be happy, be happy! I have a lot to be grateful for and I know how blessed I am. Happy New Year! I wish everyone a wonderful 2017!
