New Year-New Me.
This post is about a week late, but Happy New Year! I have actually had a pretty rough start to the New year, I’m sure I’m not the only one. But I’m trying to not let that get me down, or “define” my new Year.
My whole family took an amazing family vacay to the Beach for Christmas and we had a blast. However, we all came back sick. Well, I was the last one to get sick, and still have that nasty cold hanging on for dear life. So all of my “starting off the new year by kicking ass” plans got majorly delayed. Then just this past weekend we had to say goodbye to our first fur baby Faith. She lived a long and eventful 15 years with us, and I will never forget her. I had her before I met Greg. He actually hated dogs until he met her, and now his life is forever changed. (His words not mine!) She got to travel the country with us and our band, and got to see and do so much. I’ll really miss that little sweetie.
All of that to say, All of my plans to kick off the new year with a bang, have been delayed. I was so sick in bed I barely had energy to look at the phone. For a while I thought, “oh no I’m so behind, I’m letting everyone down…” It really bummed me out. Then I remembered what my new years resolution was. It was to live life more, and say no more, and to not compare myself to anyone. I’m sure I’m not the only person who struggles with these things.
1)Say NO MORE. There is nothing wrong with being nice and helping people. I actually believe That is one of our greatest missions. But I often find myself saying yes to everyone and everything and not having any time of energy left for me, my life, my marriage, my passions. So pick and choose wisely what you say yes to. 2)Live Life more– Enjoy every moment. Don’t be on my phone so much. Talk to my family more about their dreams and hopes. Date my hubby more. Kiss him more. Do fun and spontaneous things. 3)Not compare myself to anyone– We are all created different. It’s easy in our social media world to compare ourselves to others and their perfectly curated life. But even I’m guilty of making my life look perfect on Instagram. You can only be you, and you can only do so much in a day. So try your best, have fun, and if you don’t accomplish all you wanted to in that one day, go to bed and try again the next day. What are your new years goals? How are you striving to accomplish them? xoxo-abbey
