My New Year Resolutions


Happy 2020, friends! We are two days into the new year. I'm still somewhat in the abyss of the holiday season - confused on what day it is, wanting to bake cookies, finding places for gifts. Despite the holiday fog, I've made a list of resolutions for the year.

Focus on health + fitness. Cliché AF, I know. BUT - these were big passions of mine for years. They were my job for some of that time. I don't want to see them as "work" anymore, but simply a way of loving myself. I know consuming more nutrient-dense foods and exercising will improve my energy levels, happiness, and confidence.

Clearing my plate. As much as I love dreaming and working towards those dreams, my ambition and my available time don't match. Being a one-woman show with two kids, it's not possible to be successful at every business venture I've embarked on. I need to let some things go, and not be hard on myself. I don't want to see it as giving up. I want to see it as an opportunity to kick major ass at the things I continue on with.

Finding more moments for self-care. I think this ties in with the previous resolution. With less on my plate, I'll be able to read a book again, do an at-home workout, cook healthier meals, nap, do absolutely nothing. I need those moments. We all do.

Floss. I have never been a habitual flosser. Every time I go to the dentist, I hear the same spiel and never follow through. I'll brush my teeth three times a day, but flossing? Nah. This year, I'll change that.

So that sums it up. I know it's all about me, me, me. There is no mention of my kids or my husband, and that's okay. I've identified myself as a wife and a mother for over two years now, but I'm more than that. This is the year to discover that again. At the end of the day, my resolutions really better everyone because a happier me makes a happier wife and mama.
