January 7, 2020
We packed away all of our Christmas decor this weekend and while it was bittersweet, I’m finally warming up to the idea of a new year. For the first time, probably ever, I was slow moving to jump into a new year. Maybe it was the short holiday season or the uncomfortable cold I caught around New Years, but either way, I needed to hold onto 2019 and the holiday season a little longer this/last year.
As I am looking forward to and through 2020, our lives are about to change forever. We have a lot of change coming Baby P’s arrival in April. I am so excited and can’t wait to hold him in my arms, but something also makes me a little nervous. Maybe it’s giving birth or having a newborn to care for? I don’t know, but I’m feeling all of the feelings these days!
A New Year is always clean slate but when you already feel so blessed it’s hard to want a fresh start, if that makes any sense. However, after packing away Christmas and returning our home to its “normal” state, I can’t help to crave a routine and feel a bit of excitement to set and reach a few new goals.
This little corner of the internet, that I have created, is both a passion project and my personal work of art. Something that I feel could have surpassed it’s reality if I could ever be more routine and consistent. I’m sorry for my lack of consistency, but for some reason I run out of steam so easily. Sometimes I feel like I just haven’t found what quite works for me and sometimes I feel like it’s the constant struggle between creating written content and video content. I mean, how do these girls do it all? I know that they have big teams behind them, but they didn’t always have a team and an office and all the things. How did they create their reality?
I pray that 2020 is a year that something clicks inside of me. That something feels right and has the numbers to support it. If you know what I mean?
Jay and I set some personal, home and financial goals last year and proudly we checked the majority of them off. It felt so good to realize all that we had accomplished and to also see that we set goals that pushed us but were actually attainable. This year, we set a few more and I’m so excited to start working toward them. I read this book at the end of 2018 and it really helped us formulate a good way to set and track goals. You can read more on that here.
I’m not really sure the entire purpose of this post, other than to share what is on my heart and mind for the beginning of 2020. I am eager to share some new content and would love, more than anything, for you to share your feedback with me. What would you like to see? Do you prefer blog posts or videos?
I pray that your 2020 is full of blessings and joy! What are some of your goals for the new year? Should I share mine?
