"It's 2016, the year for me to be the best me!! Have the best body, climb the ladder to success, be the best mom and partner and accomplish everything I couldn't get to in 2015!"
That's what we're supposed to think, right, but why? Why can't we reflect on all the good things that happened last year and celebrate on how amazing our lives are? Why do we feel the need to do more, be more, have more, etc?
I'm not going to lie, When Jake and I sat down to dinner last night I pulled out my notebook to write down my new goals for the new year. while I strongly believe in writing down my goals, I was doing it because it would soon be 2016.
Instead, we reflected on what a great year 2015 had been! New baby, new home, etc. none of which had been the goals at the start of the year. Yet they still happened and were even more fantastic than what could have been put to paper on New Years Eve 2014.
So here is the objective of this blog. Instead of beating yourself up about where you think your life should be, celebrate exactly where you are. Life is short, make each moment count, be thankful and most importantly choose happiness!!
