I debate every year whether to jump on the resolution band wagon mostly because I feel like most resolutions fall by the way side come February 1st. However, our family and our marriage functions on always having goals so the beginning of the year is always the perfect time to re-evaluate, check off the ones we met and start setting up some new things.
After 3 long years of trying to start a successful business I think we are finally enjoying the benefits of all the hard work. No we still don’t get to take a vacation or have days off….but that will come. What we do get to enjoy is working from home….in every capacity, and I think we are finally closer to a more steady monthly income. That’s the trickiest and most stressful part of being a business owner. Every month is completely different in terms of income. This means lots of tricky budgeting and smart spending has to take place. Now when you have 3 kids (one being a new baby) and bills this can be easier said than done. So I guess my goal is to try to get a more steady and accurate monthly income coming in and re-vamp our spending and budget. (The budget is a goal of mine every year since everything keeps going up and up these days) Some day I’ll master all that! Haha
Secondly, we are desperately going to try to bring some order to this house. It needs some serious spring cleaning and a whole lot of organization. We are currently working on a project for the boy’s room so hopefully it will be up and done very soon. Ready to check the first project off the list!!
For me personally I want to continue losing weight and sticking to a healthier lifestyle (for myself and my family). I also want to be more in the moment and not let the stress of life always get to me. As always I want to strive to be a better mother and wife (cause let’s be honest….I can always improve). I also want to remember to always have fun….even when things are not.
I am excited for the new year and all the hope and energy that comes with this time of year. The first of the year always makes us feel like we can conquer anything….it would be nice if that feeling lasted all year long. As always hoping 2015 will make all our dreams come true…..like unlimited starbucks, anyone?? 😉
Wishing you all healthy, happy, and a love filled year!!
