2016 has been the fastest, most insane year to date for me! With 2017 here and in full force I have been struck with this idea of do, don't think. With my goals of the year to improve myself, my business and my family.

 
Generally I spend my days, nights and weekends thinking of all the things that really need a little tweak in my life. I think about the posts I have waiting in draft, I think about the farmhouse tables in my shed, I think about the books I want to read,  the outfits I want to wear, the house I want to build and the experiences I want to share with my sweet, sweet family... this list could DRAG ON!

But this year, I think it's time for a change. I am not sure if it is because I had a baby, but the last 9 months (give or take) were like sitting at a red light, while everyone around me was zipping by, honking and waiting for me to get in gear. Now don't get me wrong, other than the day I married Adam, having Mason was the very best day of my life; but I think I was in such a foreign place. I kept thinking things would go back to the way they were... like Mason wouldn't change anything. Funny, I know... and a little odd... but I was never sure what the next step was? I think when the clock struck midnight on New Years Eve that it was like a switch. The next morning I woke with ambition, drive and an attitude that reminded me of the first day of wedding planning... I was excited and it hasn't stopped since. But I do think it took some time for me to realize that Mason is just a bigger blessing. Meaning maybe I need to plan dinner earlier in the week, maybe toys on my floor don't mean my house is "destroyed", maybe I need to utilize a planner and make more time for the things most important to me so that all that I dream of can really be accomplished.

Over the last few months, staying focused has been tough for me and I feel like I have been pulled 100 different directions. So, I am setting boundaries to make sure at least 10 of the 20 things I touch throughout the day are productive. Focusing more on family, faith, business and myself. Example: for me, I want to eat less sugar, cook more at the house and build a lasting closet. All of those things should be attainable if I focus my time and energy in the appropriate way. Hoping that by directing my attention to the right places will create a ripple that will impact all aspects of my life.
 
So out with the overwhelming, and in with the motivated! Last year was a year full of REALLY big firsts, but I think this year will be the best yet.

Are you setting goals this year? I would love to know!
