This will be my year💕
Most everyone starts each year with new resolutions. Eat better, lose weight, stop cussing, be happy, etc. These are all great things to focus on and everyone has their own reasons behind each resolution. However, this year I decided to set goals for my 2018! Goals that I foresee being ones that I can truly remain focused on throughout the entire year!
My first and most important goal is one everyone struggles with at some point and time seeing as how we live in a material minded word. For 2018, my goal is to be much more frugal! I have never been one to pointlessly spend, spend, spend until the last year or so. I definitely have room for improvement here. I plan to see this goal through by creating a budget for our little family and actually stick to it! (Follow through is something I lack, it’s a huge downfall of mine) Along with this goal, I also hope to have eliminated a chunk of our debt by the end of this new year!
As if goal number one wasn’t going to be difficult enough on its own, I have chosen to tackle my lack of creativity. I have a Cricut Expression just sitting in my closet wasting away so I decided it was time to pull it out and become that crafty mama everyone is jealous of! I am hoping to work here and there on little crafts for my family and home and then who knows, business idea for down the road?! You’ll just have to stay tuned to find out!
Last but not least, I plan to take on a more active lifestyle in 2018. Now don’t go thinking I’m going to be super skinny and running marathons by the end of the year. No, no. I am simply hoping for more walking and drinking more water. Although I am super proud of those who do, cutting out soda is not for me. Did you not realize I will have THREE babies under FIFTEEN MONTHS? So no I will not be cutting soda out but I will be drinking less and replacing as much as my sanity will allow with water. Also, I truly enjoy walking especially outside and my goal is to walk at least 4-5 days each week, however it is currently 25 degrees and this pregnant mama (and my one year old) don’t need another sickness invading our home so this one may have a delayed start but I promise it will start!
Excited for these new goals is simply an understatement. I honestly can’t wait to look back at the end of the year and see what an impact these three simple goals have had on my life.
I’ve never been so excited to continually work towards New Years resolutions and I can already tell that 2018 is going to be a year to remember.
What are some of your New Years resolutions/goals? I always enjoy hearing others and it’s a great way for us to keep each other on track and accountable! Let’s hear yours!
