Hi Friends! Happy 2016!
I hope everyone had a great Holiday season and is ready to take on all the new challenges and adventures that will be coming our way in 2016!
2015 was one of my best years yet. I feel like I am starting to get to know and understand myself better every day.
None of that “New Year, New Me” stuff. I love the person that I have grown to be and I can’t wait to continue growing!
I wanted to share my goals for this new year. Putting them somewhere visible so I can work on them every day. Maybe y’all can hold me accountable.
Can’t plan a new year without champagne and donuts. Right???
…drum roll… MY 2016 DREAMS & SCHEMES:
Do more things that make me uncomfortable
(Try new foods, make new friends, FINALLY sign up for Krav, go on new adventures)
(Y’all I am terrible at keeping a balanced check book. Bye bye going out to dinner every night of the week. Goodbye extra fancy cocktail that I could easily make at home. Hello savings account $$$)
Find a new hobby
(Hopefully my new obsession with embroidery will stick… More to come)
Cook! Cook! Cook!
(Few people know that I am actually a decent cook because I hardly ever do it. I need to remember that not every dinner NEEDS a cheese course in order to be cooked… Also see budget above $$$)
Spend more time with friends and family
(Luckily Boyfriend has been getting more Sundays off from work to hang out with me, but my friends and family live far far away from me and I only get to see them a couple of times a year. I plan on seeing their great faces more often this year. Even if it is just on FaceTime. DFW friends this means more coffee dates and cake dates!)
Read twelve books
(Dear Netflix, Its not you. I just think spending some time apart might do us some good. I need stories that will captivate me. Make me laugh, cry, and inspire. I can’t handle any more of your same old lines. BUT maybe I just need to re-watch Friends one more time…)
One hour of “Me” time per week
(Does anyone else ever feel like they just need some alone time? A nice bath. Some quiet time sitting by the lake with Huxley. Spend more time working on my writing. Silence. Perfection.)
(Physically. Mentally. Spiritually. BECAUSE ITS ABOUT TIME!)
What are your goals for this year? Lets help each other out.
