This year has been an extremely hard year for my family and I. Some exciting things have happened, but really tough things have happened as well. We bought a house this year, EXCITING, and we watched our happy little man grow so much! I am extremely grateful to have a home and a healthy family of course, HOWEVER, buying a home came with a lot of new stresses. We needed a lot of renovating, which we are still working on, and that costs a lot of money $$$. Then ON TOP OF THAT my boyfriend got laid off. 🙁 So now I am working a full time job and a part time job to get our bills paid until he can find a new job. Anyways, enough complaining! I want to try and keep a positive attitude! With New Years creeping up on us, I wanted to give myself a New Years Resolution, which I do not normally do! I think people should just do or change something because they GENUINELY want to. With that being said, I want to do more for myself in 2018.

I think I care too much about what other people think or say and I want to just do things for myself and do what I feel is right. When I say “myself” I mean my family as well. I want to spend more time as a family because right now I am always running from one job to the next and it’s wearing me out. I want to stop and enjoy my life a little more and surround myself with people I love and who love me. I want to cut out as much toxic as I can. I am always run down and exhausted and it is not good for my health both mentally and physically. I also feel that it isn’t fair to my family that I am away so much. It is time for me to relax a little and just be with my family!

I also want to maintain a healthier lifestyle because if you are healthy and feel good, you exude positivity which makes you a more enjoyable person to be around. I DO NOT want to be a “debbie downer” and I want to be positive and help lift people up around me instead of bring people down. I just want to be a better person both inside and out in 2018! I am going to get into a better routine and just do what makes me happy!

I hope this post gives you some inspiration to try and be a happier, healthier you! It doesn’t matter how tough things are, there is always time to turn it around!
