Happy New Year and 2017 Resolutions

Happy New Year!

I hope everyone had a safe and happy New Year’s Eve celebration. We rung in the New Year pretty quietly with the kids and fell asleep soon after the ball dropped. We were all tired! I had a pretty blissful New Year’s Day as Adrian let me sleep in until 1:30pm! He took the boys out to lunch while I was sleeping. When I woke up, I took a walk through the “Deer Forest” behind our house, which was beautiful, misty, and cold, drank some hot coffee, and wrote a few pages in my journal reflecting on the new year and working on my resolutions.

I always make a point to share my resolutions on the blog, and this will be my seventh year doing so.

I am really excited about 2017 because it holds many changes. In addition to me beginning Yoga Teacher Training this summer, the kids will also be in school together again, as William will be entering Kindergarten come August. We have some fun things planned for the year and are looking forward to a few trips and activities, especially for Zachary with his Cub Scout pack. Not to mention, there will be a total solar eclipse in August that will be viewable from the very northern tip of the state of Georgia! How exciting!

My lucky number is 7 and I have 7 goals for this year.

1. Access creativity often.
2. Be more consistent with my health/fitness/nutrition.
3. Read more books.
4. Reconnect with myself more often through nature and meditation.
5. Speak what you seek. “You get in life what you have the courage to ask for” – Oprah Winfrey
6. Don’t trade authenticity for approval. Be yourself.
7. Allow things to happen as they will, without expectation.

I would love to hear about what you’re working on this year!
