2015 Goals

Hi, All!

I hope that you have enjoyed your holidays and are all geared up and ready for all that this new year has to bring! One thing that I do love about the flip of the calendar is that it generates a new sense of freshness. It’s like a clean slate to fix all of the things that you screwed up the previous year and to continue to progress with the things you’re doing right. For me, it’s also time that generates creativity and defines goals. Here’s a video where I share the information that’s also listed below.

At the end of 2015, I would like to have accomplished the following things in the following areas:

Home

• Continue to create an environment that I feel good about. In 2014 I purchased a new nightstand and a new mattress for my bedroom and those additions alone have brought great joy to my sleeping area.

• Be mindful of the things and people that I invite into my home as well as the type of energy that it brings. It is my goal that when people enter my home, that they immediately feel safe and loved. With this in mind, I am learning that it is important to be a bit more cautious of what and who makes it past the door. There once was a time when I never paid attention to this, because I was so “nice,” but being a mom first and foremost teaches me that not every movie, every piece of clothing, every lyric, every food, every friend of a friend, should be invited into our safe haven.

• Continue My Personal Growth with God

• Continue to watch and guide my daughter in her growth, but to incorporate more scripture into our day-to-day life.

Health

• Create more time for myself to do whatever the heck (Southern girl) my little heart desires. Whether that is to workout, sleep, having a pedicure, write, take hike, cook a meal, I just want to do it with no regrets!

• Sleep- 6-hour minimum, most nights of the week. This is a major improvement in comparison to the 2-3 hours that I’ve been doing in the past.

• Follow a plant-based diet. This has been a HUGE change for me and I’m loving it! I’ll update what I’m eating in a later video and blog.

Social Life

• This is a BIG year! Many of my friends are turning 35 this year and WOW, the celebration requests are rolling in! Many of them are going BIG with every right to, because the gift of life is a celebration within itself.

• Family- My family knows that I love them, but I need to stay in better contact. Point. Blank. Period.

• My plans for this year is to actually send more mail through the postal system, call, and visit more.
Letting go of the “All or None,” mentality

I am learning that a little bit of something is better than a whole lot of nothing. Perfectionism has made and gotten the best of me over the years and I’m gradually letting go. I will talk more about this in a future blog/video.

Well, that is all for now, but I would LOVE to hear from you in the comments section! What are your goals for this year? Are there any areas in particular that you would like to give more attention or time to? Feel free to share!
