How was everyone’s weekend??
We had a great and low key weekend. I didn’t knock anything off my “to-do” list, but we did play and have fun. Much more important things were happening than the to-do list. Right?
In case you didn’t notice, I didn’t list my goals or resolutions for the New Year. Nothing more marvelous could have happened in 2014. I mean, we became parents in 2014!! That had been on my “dream list” for years.
Since becoming parents, Luvy and I have actively been trying to simplify and declutter our lives. We have always been busy people. We are on the go all the time! I hate it, because the first thing friends say when they call is ‘I know you are really busy, but….’. That is not how I want to be known, and not how I want Baby D to grow up.
So, this year my one big goal is to pick one thing and do it well.
I have so many things that I do…. I’m a wife, mother, dental hygienist, nutrition and health coach, Certified Health Education Specialist, personal trainer, blogger, Refresh Summit host and planner, friend, daughter, and the list goes on….
I have so many things going in my life that I feel like I’m not great at any of them. After telling this to Luvy, he encouraged me to pick one thing and do it well.
Being a wife and mother are my main priorities, there is no contest there. My relationships with my friends and family come next. After that, I want to pick one of my passions and focus on it.
I don’t want to constantly be getting pulled in 10 different directions. I only work 2 days a week, so that isn’t a huge issue when it comes to time. I am very fortunate in that I have a job where my work doesn’t come home with me. Well, the gross of work comes home with me and straight into the laundry room, but that is another issue. 😉
The last thing I want is my family to suffer due to my stretching myself too thin, because what I do matters!
I have never been good at saying no to things I want to do. These are all things I want to do, but I just can’t do everything. If I don’t want to do it, I have no problem turning it down. If it were only that easy with things I am passionate about too!
So, the decision is mine to make. How is all this going to look? What will I choose to do well, and what will I have to close the door on?
Not your typical New Years resolution. Actually, it isn’t really a resolution at all, but it is what I’m focusing on this year.
What are you focusing on this year?
Do you have a hard time choosing one thing to focus on?
Or are you like me and have all kinds of things you do and things you are passionate about?
