2019 Resolutions

Tuesday, January 1, 2019

Last year, my only new year's resolution was survival, and looking back it's almost hilarious what a smart choice that was! Learning to do life with a newborn and a threenager while my husband started a brand new firefighting career was no joke...throw in buying a new house and moving, and well, it's been survival mode at it's finest. :)

Things are finally in the beginning stages of settling down, though, so I feel like I can start goal setting again. I am so excited to see what the new year brings as we fully settle down in to our new home, and Brian and I discover what it's like to parent a toddler and a kindergartner! (She starts Kinder in 6 months you guys...my heart is breaking.) So here are my goals for the next 12 months:

1. To get organized. About a third of our stuff is still in boxes, because Christmas hit and I just kind of stopped unpacking. I want to fully unpack and get a system of making the house more organized as well as implement a cleaning schedule for myself. 

2. To lose the "baby weight". I know this is so cliche, but I have kept 10 pounds per baby, so I would really love to lose it to get healthier and feel better about myself. (Says the girl who ate donuts for breakfast...there's always tomorrow!) 

3. To get my stress and anxiety under control. I had some postpartum anxiety and depression this year, and it seems to be getting much better, but I still have a lot of moments where I have to put on my essential oils and calm myself. I want to learn more about other oils and invest more in them, because I know they will help with prevention.

4. To be more present with my girls. It's been a rough year of being tired a lot and not always feeling like playing or going places with the girls, so I really want to change that. I'll have a blog post soon that will delve in to it more, but my goal is to become more of a "yes" mom instead of being a "no" mom so often.

5. To be a little selfish. I know this sounds so contradictory, but I tend to be a people pleaser and often forget to fill my own cup. In the end, this usually makes for a grumpy and worn out mama/wife, so I'm going to make a point to focus on my self care more than usual. It's all about balance. 

Well, now it's out there on my little corner of the internet, so you all are holding me accountable. ;)

Leave your resolutions in the comments, I would love to read what you all have planned.

Let's make this the best year ever, friends!
