My first post in 2017…how exciting! Do you also love the feeling of a fresh year, new chapter and the anticipation what the year entails? 2016 was a great year for me with lots of new adjustments. We moved to a bigger apartement, my son went from baby to a toddler and i started a new job and so many more things. This year i am looking forward to making it even better by helping myself. It is all about selfcare for me this year since i have really spent my time taking care of everyone around me and forgeting myself in the process. So i thought of sharing with you my most important resolutions that are really straight to the point and easy to keep ( i mean lets see about that) There is always time for improvement and sometimes they can be as little as just two words and no need for lengthy explanations. I am sure you could relate to some and i really hope that i will still be keeping them throughout the year.
Oh my! this is like on top of my list since i am a complete stressmanic! Yes, me! I stress about everything, if my son eats enough, if i am good at my job, if tomorrow is going to rain, if the grocery is closed etc. So what if supper is not always on time, or my kid goes 10 min later to bed then usual. I really just have to remind myslef that that is life. No need to stress about it.
Drink more water
So easy right? ehh no since i keep forgetting that i need to drink until i feel like collapsting. I want to get myself a cool water bottle like this one to make me want to drink from it lol. Any suggestions or tips on how not to forget to drink?
Worry Less Play More
As a mom i am always worried, worried if my kid is happy, hungry, sick, cold, hot…etc. i should just relax a bit and have some fun. I cannot remember the last time i let my goofy self come out a bit. I really want to buy games and toys that i can play with my kid and husband and just have a good time.
By facetime i mean all things that have a screen! I, and i am sure you too, get so consumed by our smartphones and tablets that sometimes we get lost in it. I want to try to put more time away for simple phone conversations, lunch meetings and datenights. Me and my husband tried to leave our phones out of the bedroom but it lasted for only 2 days…i would like to try that again though since i really think its important.
Start Saving More
I know its hard to save when you still have a lot of expenses but even if its just a dollar a day it will help you out when needed. I would like to save towards a house. so i should really start being more consistnet and strict about it. Any saving goals you have this year?
Quality over Quantity
This is regarding me blog. I believe that the quality of a blogpost means more than how many blogposts a week i can post. And i really hope i can deliver better quality posts in the future and step up my game a bit. Its hard to compete with all the many blogs that are out there but as long as the content is unique i believe i will find my voice.
