Keep Your Vision Set in 2020
As I reflect on all that I have accomplished in 2019, I have realized that there are great blessings I have received throughout the year. I came out a stronger person, happier with myself, and there was a huge restoration of my faith. As we enter in the new decade, I want to take you along my journey with a new vision I have in mind. My New Years resolution is all about finding balance. The goals I have set, are manageable all throughout the year. Grab a piece of paper and a pen, in case you want to use these for your personal life. Slap it on the fridge, where you'll see it each day. If you're anything like me, you'll need a reminder in case you get off track.
Here are the 4 goals that I have set for myself and for my family:
1. Finding work balance. Working from home is a huge blessing. However, with two littles, it can be a challenge to stay on task. My "mommin" schedule and my work schedule have collided a lot as I adjusted to this new SAHM and working from home life. How I plan to change the way this all works is utilizing nap times, and designating evening hours Monday, Wednesday, and Fridays to get my tasks done.
2. Make our time more significant. One thing we practiced this past year was learning to say "no". With 2 kids under 2, it is hard for us to pack up and go as we please. We learned we couldn't do everything and that sometimes we had to decline invites, even though we so badly wanted to attend. As we go into this New Year, we want to get more value out of our ventures out of the house. Packing and loading up an 11 year-old, an almost 2 year old, and a 7 month old is EXHAUSTING. Whether we are traveling for a few minutes or traveling a few hours, keeping them calm and entertained can be overwhelming. We will only do, what we can handle.
3. Save more money. This ties into making our time valued. My husband and I came in agreement that this is the year we do everything the CHEAP way. This year I will share content with the tips and tricks on how to save and possibly end 2020 debt free. Everyone stresses about money. We want this year to be less stressful when it comes to finances. We are willing to make the changes in our life to meet that expectation.
4. Continue on with our faith. It was so easy for us to lose track of time when we brought the 5th member to our clan, back in May 2019. For some reason that 5th person can make things disorderly. It takes time to create a "new norm". With that, attending church was always on our mind but we could never seem to make the time. We are not proud of that, however, we are making it a priority to attend a service once a week.
All of these are achievable and realistic, right? I thought so, too. Follow along with me on my social media platforms. This is where you can get a closer look at my lifestyle, and better understand why I chose these goals.
