My personal goals - 2019

I will be honest with you.  I don't know what exactly 2019 has in store for us.  There aren't any major life changes on the horizon.  Our family is complete.  My husband is content in his job.  We are still happy in our forever home.  Short of Rob continuing his education (I'm pretty sure he dreams of being a lifelong student - haha), Grace going into kindergarten and Brooklyn starting preschool... this year has a lot of open pages to be written.  Which I am both optimistic for and excited.

So I have been thinking a lot about how I want the year to go.  Of course I want the year to be an overwhelming success but on a personal level I feel like I have A LOT of work to do.

In 2019, I want to...

...sleep more.  I am a notorious night owl.  Which isn't really a big deal when you are 22 and kidless. But at 28, with three little turkeys that like to take turns keeping me up... I should probably practice going to bed much earlier.  So I am starting small and my goal is to be in bed laying down by midnight every night. more.  In 2019 it would be nice to take this blog to the next level.  What that next level is, I am still undecided.  But I do want to try and blog more and on a more regular basis.  I like writing and I like sharing with my readers all that goes on in our world.

...yell less.  This one is going to be hard because when my kids stop listening and tune me out, I yell.  I want to yell less and try and get through to them on a different level.  So fingers crossed it is as effective as me being the yelling mom. on time more.  I am terrible at being anywhere on time or when I will say I will be there.  It's not that I do it on purpose.  I'm not just sitting on my butt wasting away.  It is just the challenge of getting my kids anywhere on time... something always comes up.  Luckily, this winter break has completely jacked up our sleep schedule and so we will have to get back into a routine anyway, a perfect time to reestablish early schedules.

...tell my husband I love him more.  Can one ever truly say "I love you" enough?  After ten years together, it is obviously a known that I love this man I married, but sometimes I don't say it enough.  This year I want to say it more often.  It can never be said enough.

Admittedly I've been working on this list the last 7 days or so... and I already know I am failing at more than one of these personal goals.  But if come the end of the year, I look back and have made great progress towards these goals, I will feel like I truly accomplished something.

Happy New Year, friends!
May 2019 bless all of us with good health and great fortune.
