Each year I come up with resolutions for myself. I always need to lose some pounds and be a little healthier, but really I try to concentrate on something bigger. 2009 I focused on learning to let go, 2010 was about becoming a happier person. I feel like it takes a whole year to even begin changing your life and I believe I have done it and that's why I take my new years resolutions so seriously. I try to pick the one thing that has really brought me down that year and try to fix it and make it better.
2010 was truly a transitional year for us. Job changes, a move, a new house, rekindled relationships, a pregnancy, and of course a baby. I feel like I have finally gotten to where I want to be in life and now I just need to learn how to excel in it and that is essentially my goal for this coming year.
In 2011 I would like to learn to become a wonderful mom and wife. I want to reveal in the moments that pass by so quickly with Ethan and not take anything for granted. I want to begin learning what it's going to take to balance Ethan time, Michael time, and me time.
I want to become a better housewife - have a cleaning routine, at least 3 home cooked meals a week, and perfect the art of being frugal to make sure I can remain at home. I want to constantly remember how lucky I am to have the job I have and remember what I learned in 2010 and my happiness project. I also want to take my 2009 goals with me and remember to roll with the punches when things inevitably don't go as planned.
I feel my goals are fairly simple this year because I truly have no idea what this year will hold. It is a whole new way of life for me to experience this year and I can't wait. Bring it on!
