New Year, Same ‘Ol Me

img_4459Well kinda…

At 34 years of age, I’ve come to the realization that things don’t always go as planned. As a matter of fact, more often than not we end up setting high expectations for ourselves, only to be our biggest let down. So as time as gone on, instead of setting new year’s resolutions for myself, I don’t. Now, if you’re big on resolutions, continue to GO BIG! I’m not here to crush on anyone’s aspirations. They just haven’t worked all that well for me.

Now, don’t get me wrong. I’m very much a go-getter, I’m just not very much of a planner. I like to live life in the present and very much aware. Instead of giving up halfway through my resolutions only to come full circle once the new year comes, I make small resolutions happen throughout the year. Why wait until the new year to change something that you would like to improve or achieve? In my opinion, living in the present has allowed me to live a much fuller, positive, and peaceful life. As a wife, mother, graduate student, and a career in higher education, all of the aforementioned are detrimental for my well-being. And as you all know, if us mamas are well, then our homes will be too.

So, in 2017, try something a bit different. Let go of the pressure and live life a bit more mindful and aware. This will take practice but it will feel oh so good once you accomplish it. But, if you are big on resolutions, please share your ways! I always love to hear and see things through the eyes of others. It’s refreshing to learn new things that perhaps, I had never thought of.

One thing I am certain of, this year I will be a better version of the same ‘ol me.

Cheers!
