If you've been following my blog, let me just say thank you. Thank you! If you are a new here, welcome, and thank you for taking the time to read this. You might notice that all of my old posts are gone. Why? Well, because it has been a long time since my last post and I wanted to get a fresh start. What better way to start off the new year than by cleaning up the mess that was my blog and simply starting over?
I'm hoping that this new year proves to be a great one. 2013 came with quite a bit of stress, but we did get a beautiful new baby out of it. That's right! We are now the proud parents of not one, but two incredible boys! I'll share more on that later though. I'd like to keep today's post light and quick. Mostly, I just wanted to get that fresh start I mentioned and say Happy New Year!
I'm usually not a fan of new year resolutions, but this year I have set a few goals for myself. With all that has been thrown our way lately, I have been neglecting myself. I haven't been making time for my own interests, so I think it's time I start doing that. I'm not looking to do anything crazy, just get back to a few simple things that I enjoy.
I have set a goal to start reading and writing again. These are things that I love, but have been neglecting. Even my personal journal has all but been forgotten. I'd like to find some time to do each of these things everyday, but even just a few times a week would be great. I haven't set any specific goals yet, aside from wanting to get in at least 36 books this year. I'm looking into some writing challenges and am determined to start keeping up on my journal again. Hopefully this blog will not be left behind again either.
I also want to focus more on meditation and just taking care of myself in general. I have been slacking in this department and it's time to put an end to that. I may not get up and put on make up everyday, because I've really never made a big fuss of that anyway, but I do need to pay more attention to myself.
That being said, it is 3:30am, and both of my children are sleeping, so I should be doing the same. I'll end this post by saying happy birthday to my dear husband. I don't say it often enough, but I love you.
Happy Birthday, Hubby!
