My 3 Simple Goals for 2018
I’m really not one for setting resolutions every New Year. To be honest, I’m reflecting each day and making small changes as I go. This is one of my favorite quotes and a reminder that little changes every day make a big impact over time:
So on that note, I’m not going to set crazy, extravagant goals (at least in my personal life), but instead make some resolutions that will improve my daily life over time.
Here are my 3 simple goals for 2018:
1. Be on social media less and less. And then even less!
These days it is getting harder and harder to get away from technology. Especially running my blog, I end up on social media often. It’s all part of the game, and I absolutely LOVE connecting with other women like myself.
However, I believe that it’s important for myself to set limits and disconnect often. As a working mom (and really, a mom in general), time is at a premium these days and it’s so precious! I have to choose wisely what I fill it with. I might not grow my Instagram the fastest but that’s okay with me! At least I’ll have my sanity and be living my life 😉
2. Make the effort to schedule more dates with my friends.
Have you seen that funny ecard pin that says, “Sorry for being a bad friend, I’ve been busy being an awesome mom!”?? That sums me up! Being a mother consumes all of you, and it’s difficult to remember to check in with girlfriends, let alone actually schedule time to get together! Not to mention my husband, family, work, blog… you get the idea. These days we’re all so busy!
So, my second goal for 2018 is to schedule more time with my girlfriends. I always have the best time, and laughing and having girl-talk recharges me! It’s nice to take time to remember the person I was before I became a mom, and make sure she gets attention too 😉
3. Stay centered during times of stress.
We have a lot of things coming down the pipeline this year and we are so excited, but all of these changes really do scare me. It’s all stuff I want to happen, but I know it will require more of my time, energy, and most of all- patience!
If I know one thing about myself, it’s that when I’m tired and worn down everything seems a lot tougher. I say seems because it isn’t always that way, but my outlook isn’t as positive when I’m worn down. So my goal is to take care of myself and prepare for those stressful moments. I know they’re coming, but I can be ready for them!
There you have it- these are my simple goals for the New Year and I’ll work on them little by little. What is a goal or resolution you have for the new year, or are you the type that doesn’t make any?
