I pray 2018 was as good to you as it was to my family.
I made the comment to my husband over the holidays that this is Adaline’s first New Year’s. I then went on to list the next upcoming holidays that will be firsts for her, Valentines Day, St. Patrick’s Day, Easter and then I mentioned the Fourth of July.
But wait! Adaline was born in April which means she was in fact earth side last Fourth of July! This realization actually sent me into a mental spiral. How is it possible that I’ve already had one summer with her?? I’m so glad that I’ve been writing in a journal (sporadically, but hey it still counts) about her precious life. I think back to this past year and I remember so much, yet so little.
Time flies when you are sleep deprived. Apparently.
We are already almost a month into 2019. Although I am not a huge fan of #newyearnewme, I do believe in setting goals for yourself. So, have you set goals? How are they going? What areas of you would like to improve upon?
My word this year is intentional. As I’m sure most parents can agree, we tend to just focus on getting through one day at a time. What do I need to do for the kids? What has to get done for work? What has to get done around the house? While some days absolutely require us to go into survival mode, I am trying to be more intentional this year. Really take time to not just “autopilot” through my day as my husband likes to call it. Be intentional about how I spend my time with my daughter. Be intentional about my relationship with my husband. Be intentional about how I prioritize work.
How can you be more intentional in your life?
