Ok… For years I have been the type of person that is practical. Why put down some resolutions I’m just going to fall on my face at in a few weeks? I love planning, but New Year’s resolutions just seem doomed to fail. But this year? I just feel the burn to do it. So I thought I’d share, to give myself a little pressure!
First though, I had a different thought. What makes a year so special? I make goals all the time. The fact is, I’m scared to fail, and be the exact same person in the same spot next year. I thought of myself looking back the same time next year and being exactly the same. Am I the same as I was last year? No! So I don’t think my fears will manifest.
This year…I had a baby. Number six, all natural water birth again. We sold our house, and moved. Because of the move, my kids got into an amazing school. I made new friends. I lost some closeness with old friends (sorry guys :<). I read some books that touched my life. I experimented with whole food plant based eating. Because of that, I lost 20 pounds. I gave into my love of cheese and gained half of it back :P. I’ve struggled with depression again. This year has been a whirlwind, and for the most part an amazing success.
My plans for this coming year? I want to start blogging (Tadah!). I want to start exercising at the gym, lifting and walking. I want to eat even healthier, and maybe start packing lunches for the kids. I want to make more new friends. I want to turn my new home into a little slice of paradise. I’d like to read some more books. All around, I’d like to be a happier, healthier person.
Happy New Years! I hope you can see me along on making this year amazing.
What are your hopes for the coming year?
