Happy New Year

2018 is here. I can't believe it. Not only is 2018 here, but it's the year I turn the big 4-0.

Yup. #thisis40 

I have several goals for my 40th year but my biggest one is to become one with myself and focus on being me in the present. Do you ever feel like you are just rushing and running and always trying to get the next thing done before you finish what you're presently doing?! That's every second of every day for me. I'll be doing laundry but thinking about the dishes, the playroom, did I make the bed, is my son getting enough attention, is dinner planned for tonight, and so on and so on. I want to be in the moment. And remember the moments. I swear I feel like I blinked and years have flown by. Do you feel the same way too?!

Anyways, if you follow me on Instagram, you'll know that my IG goal for the year is to take a picture of myself everyday to remind myself that I am beautiful on the outside as well as the inside. And to not use any filters. Cuz it's time to get real and be real!
Since having a baby, I won't lie, it's been a serious struggle in my head. My body just doesn't feel like my body anymore. I also feel like I don't have a single second to myself. And if I do, I spend that single second worrying about what I can get done and accomplished instead of enjoying that single second all by myself. Like to relax and breathe and enjoy a moment of peace. Can you relate?!

What will I do in 2018? For starters,

I will take time to breathe and focus on me.
I will allow myself the time to not think and have a few moments to myself.
I will utilize a schedule to help me stop running around like a chicken with my head cut off all the time.
I will meal plan {successfully} to not waste food. (I tried this year but gave up)
I will do yoga at least once a week.
I will read one book a month.
I will simplify my belongings and the stuff in my house. #40bagsin40days

What will you do?

I'm ready to write one heck of a good one for 2018. How about you?!
