January is off to a great start. It did take me a minute to kind of figure out what I wanted this year in regards to setting goals. Somehow I lacked a bit of motivation at the start of the year but I’ve since caught up. One thing that’s helped is this course I’m taking for work. It’s good to be a student. I love to learn and this particular course is certainly inspiring. It deals with the brain and how it develops and it’s reminding me that I’m never too old to learn or change. Anyway it got me in the mood to share what’s been on my brain as far as goals for 2018!
I know no one likes the word resolutions. And trust me I get why – it just sounds so constricting. I must do these things or else. That said this year I’m calling my goals resolutions. I need constricting, or else at the moment. I need to tell myself to take myself seriously or no one else will. So if resolve is what it will take then resolutions are what I will make. (sorry for the rhyme! 🙂 Here are just 5 excerpts from my resolutions this year.
Better My Health
Last year I didn’t really think too much about my health. In fact I focused so much on the health of those around me but didn’t really make much of an effort for myself. Then later in the year I thought of it like one of those things you know you should do, but would get to later. Well, this year my health is priority.
I specifically want to work on creating a good morning and evening routine. So important to me. Little J is potty trained now and so much more independent. Right now everything is so haphazard I really need a bit more order to my days and nights.
Ok so I’m a mom. I put everyone ahead of myself and that’s probably not going to change anytime soon. It does mean however that if I’m going to be able to keep that up then I need to take better care of me. Putting my self first isn’t being selfish, it’s being kind. I need to be kinder to myself so I can be kinder to you. I’ll definitely be working on this in 2018.
I don’t drive. This is a long story but to make it short…every time I’ve gone to learn some big life event happens and I never even make it to the driving test. Shame I know! But I can’t be the only thirty something who can’t drive! Can I? Ok so this year the goal is to become a good and safe driver. If you see me around you have permission to nag me about it . It’ll whip me into shape. Lol.
Be more present and in the moment
I need to be more present and just enjoy time with my husband and son and leave worry behind.
