HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
I cannot wait to see what 2018 and the Lord have in store for me, my family and here on my little corner of the internet! I have some big goals and a road map in place to get me there, now I need to be brave enough to take the necessary steps.
2017 was a fun year in our house:
Jesse and I went skydiving for my birthday
We went to Disneyland for spring break and got to visit our California family
Tent Camped and the quickly upgraded our tent to “Poppy” Pop-Up Camper
I went to RISE with my Cousin Melissa, and saw my hero Rachel Hollis
Got a matching tattoo with Melissa
Jesse and I ran away to Disney World ALONE
Zoe got Sister Locs and all my hair woes are now GONE
My sister Michelle visited before moving to Germany
DISNEY WORLD as a family, where we basically moved there
Visited the Wizarding World of Harry Potter with the kids!
Loved all things Summer: swimming, Schlitterbahn, TBARMcamps, beach trip, and lake trip
I started blogging more
We hung out with friends, and really dove into our community
We dated more and communicated better
Built furniture and rearranged our house
Wore matching Christmas Jammies
And rested like it was our J-O-B
So here are some of my resolutions, goals, oh I don’t know what to call them but here is what I am striving for in 2018:
Do my 5 minute journal EVERYDAY
Drink more water than coffee
Read my Bible daily
Be Present with my fam = less time scrolling on my phone
Slow to anger and Quick to Love
To work out because I am ABLE to move my body and because I enjoy it
I find that having something to narrow your focus, to hone in on improving yourself, you need a very specific idea. No fluff around it or extra stuff to get caught up in. This year I picked a word that I could focus on. A single word that will help me remember who I want to be and where I want 2018 so lead me. My word for the year is COURAGE. I want to stop worrying about what others think of me and that takes Courage. I want to speak to women and share what the Lord has done and that takes Courage. I want to love my kids and husband with all that I am even when I feel like I have nothing left to give, and for me, you guessed it takes Courage. So this year that’s what I’ll be focusing on being brave, and courageous!
What about you? What are your goals? Do you have a word? Or a focus? I want to hear it! Let’s keep each other accountable this year!
