2015 is officially here and I’m stoked! 2014 was quite a year for my family and I. It seemed like many of us just couldn’t catch a break, totally sucked! I do know that anytime life throws you curveballs or things seem like they’re just not going your way that its just God preparing you for something amazing. We go through tests in life to show God our faithfulness, and the more faithful we are the more blessed we are. As you all know, I don’t make New Year’s resolutions, but the one thing I’m making a priority and striving to do the most this year is build my relationship with God. I want to be a better me and more intentional and focused about the things I put my time and energy into. I want to make sure that my priorities (God, family, myself) are in the right order and trust that he is guiding and leading every aspect, every second, every nuance of my life.
In 2015, I won’t be forcing things, I’ll be letting them happen, while putting in the work and effort to accomplish my goals. My motto for 2015 is work hard, play harder. I want to be happy, have fun, and enjoy my life to the fullest. The past few years I have been on the move, not slowing down for anything or anyone. Even having a baby didn’t slow me down, if anything is sped things up. I realize more than ever, now that I’m a mother, that time does not stop and that is really FLIES! I literally feel like I blinked and one minute I was graduating college and entering the workforce and the next I’m married with a child.
I’m approaching my last year in my twenties and I’m like in shock. Of course I’m happy and feel blessed to be getting older, because well if you’re not getting older than that probably means something’s wrong. Like you may be a zombie or vampire or something. Anyhow, since I’m a mere mortal, aging is just a natural process of life, but I will always be young at heart. Plus, I’m a cool mom, not like a regular mom, but a cool one (if you’re around my age, then you totally know what movie that’s from). Even though I’m a cool mom (and wife) I want to be a better mom and wife in 2015. I want to have more patience with my husband and son and show more grace. I’m just getting started out in this game of marriage and motherhood, and I have a long time to go with it. I don’t want to form bad habits now, because they die hard. Good habits stick around for the long run, and that’s my cup of tea right there!
So I challenge you to do the same! Be a better you, form good habits, and prioritize the important people and things in your life this new year. Don’t let another year fly by being stagnant. Take the new year by the horns and drive results, success, happiness and fulfillment. I’ll be here to help you along the way, and I know you’ll be here to help me too!
Here’s to a new year, new beginning and a happy and blessed 2015.
Happy New Year!
