Thoughts from 2015 and for 2016

Despite the trend of creating resolutions, I decided I would do something different during this transitional time of the year.

I found this wonderful photo on Tumblr and decided this would be far more beneficial than just creating the same resolutions from years past.

Looking Back at 2015…

My biggest accomplishment…becoming pregnant despite not knowing I was for three months.

My nicest memory…watching some of the most wonderful young people graduate and take their steps into the next phase of their lives.

My favorite book and film…

I usually can only think of the most recent films/books I’ve partaken in, but I enjoyed them none the less.

Book: The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins 22557272

Movie: “Creed”

My biggest challenge…coming to terms with the changes in my life that I didn’t plan.  I’m very much a Type-A personality, so when I cannot have control, I tend to become quite agitated.  Learning to make lemonade out of lemons, or better yet, not seeing the flow of life as lemons in the first place is something I want to work on for the upcoming year.

I learnt…how much I truly wanted to be a mommy after so many years of not being able to make that happen when it was my focus.  Life’s surprises often highlight what you never knew could be possible.

I travelled to…Michigan for Thanksgiving.

I failed in…trying to give up my addiction to Bravo/Real Housewives.  #SorryNotSorry

Looking Ahead to 2016

My goals for this year…

  • Continue with my healthy pregnancy and deliver a beautiful baby boy in March
  • Grow my Scentsy business
  • Take more time to enjoy the true joys in life

I want to continue…my current reading streak of getting in a few dozen pages each night.

I want to try…cooking more during the week.

I want to stop…and enjoy peaceful times instead of trying to cram “to-dos” into every “free” moment.

I want to learn…one new recipe per week.

I want to travel to I want to begin…again…running after my body has healed from the delivery.

I promise…to never give up on my 2016 goals, no matter how I may stumble and get stuck at times.
