I’ve still got some catching up to do from the holidays, but I wanted to just write tonight. With a new year here, I’ve been thinking about what I want to focus on this year. Last year, I focused on Spirituality and Simplicity. I still want to progress in those aspects, but this year, my word(s) because I couldn’t choose one are:
CONFIDENCE & CONSISTENCY
This year I want to develop the confidence to be ME. I feel like I have to find myself again after each baby and this time, I’ve been a little bit all over the place. I want the confidence to say no. The confidence to say yes. The confidence to speak up and the confidence to be quiet.
I want to be confident in my talents and abilities and stop trying to downplay them, while still accepting that others’ talents aren’t my own. (I have this crazy desire to be and do everything and that just isn’t realistic or kind on myself.)
I want to develop confidence to enjoy joy in progress over perfection. And the confidence to do challenging things that get me out of my comfort zone. (I’ve got plenty of ideas to practice this one. Stay tuned!)
That sounds like a lot. Whew! Which brings me to my other word:
Consistency. I’m a project-based girl at heart. I like to do things and check them off. But, I’m learning slowly that it’s the everyday, little choices that are going to bring great results. I want to add in a bit more structure to my personal and family routine.
So…2017. Here we go!!
