With the start of the new year (is it really 2012?!), I've been re-evaluating many of the aspects of my life. 2011 had many amazing ups (getting married to the best husband ever, taking fabulous trips to Italy and Hawaii!) and a few downs (struggled with anxiety and generally feeling overwhelmed). I'm ready to take what I learned in 2011 and make 2012 even better.
So, how do I plan to do that? Well, let's start by ditching completely unrealistic to-do lists (a la the first post on this blog) and begin by setting a really simple goal for myself:
Do what makes me happy and be the best I can be, EVERYDAY!
I love that this goal doesn't set narrow parameters for me and allows me the freedom to make some mistakes every now and then. :) Of course I want to accomplish the goals that I set for myself back on my 30th birthday, but those things aren't going to happen over night - and maybe not even over a year.
So let's start with today...I'm going to make strides toward my goal by...
wait for it!
I bet you can't contain your excitement!
I'm going to be happy and be the best I can be by...
...getting this house in order! Ok, I know, I know - not a very exciting start. But, after an awesome trip to Hawaii (pics to soon follow) and being away for 8 days, we returned and quickly created a house full of disarray. Is picking up the house the most amazing thing to be doing on this Friday afternoon? Absolutely, no chance! I do, however, know that I am a much happier person to be around when I am surrounded by a neatly organized environment. So, picking up the house satisfies both requirements of my goal - the end result will make me happy, and I'm being the best wife I can be!
Being happy doesn't come without a little hard work :)
Can't wait for the 2012 journey ahead...
