Today’s prompt: Fri. | Dec. 15 – Best Changes You Made To Tweak This Year #AMonthofFaves – best changes you made or routines you kept that to better organize your day / life; your = morning, evening or daily routines
This was a big year for me. I finally felt like I could breathe again for the chaos that came since 2015. At the beginning of the year I made resolutions (more like items that I wanted to accomplish) and I really gave it my all this year to make them happen.
First thing first is just breathing. Relaxing. I tried yoga, I tried meditating. I tried to remain calm if something negative crossed my path. I made a conscious effort to wake up positive and remain positive. I tried to approach my day with a smile on my face, actually say good morning to the people I see every morning and be a freaking ray of sunshine. ☀️ mainly I tried to remain humble and grateful in every situation I was faced with.
I started to play piano again. I started coloring. I cooked A LOT- and created food for people I love. We got season tickets to the Saints and I get to see my best friend every Sunday! I did things that made me happy. I started a blog about the thing I loved the most- reading! It has brought me so much joy to create new friendships. It’s probably been the highlight of my year.
I would say the biggest thing I did this year was ease up- on myself, my kids and others. I don’t have to eat organic everyday. I don’t have to work out everyday. I don’t have to finish every project I start. I do have to enjoy life with my husband, kids and family. I do have to only give as much as I can. I do have to put value on my friendships and relationships and treat them with the same respect I am given. I do have to love my life because I am insanely blessed and couldn’t have found a better person to do life with.
I can only hope 2018 brings me as much joy as 2017 did. It’s been real 💁🏻♀️ fun. Here are some of my favorite recaps:
