I still can’t believe that it’s 2015, where did 2014 go? It seemed to go by in a blink of an eye. I would say that 2014 was one of my most fun years I’ve had as an adult. There were so many fun experiences and amazing things that happened. I’ve been thinking about New Year’s resolutions and goals for 2015. One thing I really want to do better is to be more present with the people that are around me. It’s very hard for me to turn my brain off and just relax and enjoy what’s happening in the now. I’m always thinking about what I want to blog about, doing research or going thru photos, making lists in my head of all the things I have to get done, etc. The second thing I want to do better, it goes right along side the first, is to not be such a perfectionist. I demand such excellence and perfection out of myself that it’s hard for me to relax- ever! I’m the only one that puts this pressure on myself and I’m very hard on myself when I don’t “do” what I think I should.
Over winter break I took a lot of time off where I completely turned off my phone and computer and just hung out with my family. There were many days I stayed in my pj’s all day, didn’t put on makeup or do anything around the house. I forced myself to not be “perfect” and just spend quality time with my family. It was so much fun and I can tell my kids really enjoyed having all of my attention. I look forward to more evenings and weekends like this.
What goals or resolutions have you made for yourself? I love hearing from you guys!
