Really I'm not too sorry about it. I pretty much expect to break my goals the second I make them, but at least it gives me the chance to evaluate myself and see what I want to work on. After some self evaluation I found that my goals for myself are not my usual goals this year.
My usual goals consist of:
Get in shape
Grow my buisness
Be more organized
Blah blah blah...
These aren't New Years resolutions these are just adult things I have do. While they are an important part of my life and they are all good decisions they weren't my main priority this year.
I have to be honest 2013 was a pretty rough year for me. I don't have a sad story to tell or anything like that, it was just tough. Life came fast and hard and it was just a stressful year to get through. After taking a long evaluation of how I want my 2014 year to go I found that through a little hardship, my view of life has changed a lot in a year.
My 2014 resolutions now look something like this:
#1 Be more present with my kids
#2 Find more time to be with my husband
#3 Don't sweat the small stuff
#4 Be a kinder more compassionate person
#5 Read to my kids more often
#6 Learn to write because I suck at it :)
#7 Blog more because it's cathartic for me and it helps me with goal #6
As you can see I have already gotten behind on goal #7 but that's because I have been working on goals #1-#5 so I'm okay with it.
This New Years Eve we were lucky enough to have some of my nieces and nephews over for a sleep over to bring in the New Year and light a few sparklers together....Oh and to bang so hard on the muffin tins that they leave our muffins looking a bit skeewhampus now :) Good times were had by all!
These pictures are taken at night with an Iphone so the quality isn't great, but I am working on letting go and also on goal #1 .
I'm so grateful to have worked through a hard year and seen my whole view of life change even though nothing in life did. Sometimes all you need is a different look at life that makes all the difference for you. So here is to a New Year and a new perspective. Happy New Year!!!!
