Hello friends!!! Happy New Year!!! 2019 is here!! 🙂
2018 went by so quickly! 2018 was the year I got married, the year I thought would go by so slowly is already over. It was seriously the best year of my life!! I loved every part of it, and I literally cannot wait to see what 2019 has in store.
I have some SUPER exciting things coming up this year that I can’t wait to tell you about. However, you’ll have to wait a little longer to find, because they are still in the works. So stay tuned to my blog, twitter, youtube channel, or heck, even instagram!! I’ll link them all down below at the end.
I’m not really one to make big New Years resolutions, but this year I just have a few things I really want to try to stick too.
- Routines…this is something that I have really not done in so long. Some may think, well that just sounds like getting yourself into a rut by doing a routine, but I think otherwise. Lately, even before the first of the year, I’ve been starting a nighttime routine that has really helped me just relax and wind down better than before. If I only work until 5:30, then I add a few things to my routine, but it’s been really good. I feel this will be a whole blog post of itself, and I’ll get to that. 🙂
- Planning/Organization…I’ve always been a big planner but sometimes you just need a little motivation on getting things done better. I always have had a planner ever since college, heck high school even, but I need to look at it more often than I am. I like to write down when bills are due, and important pay days on it. Sometimes I’m looking at my planner at the last minute, when I really need to buckle down and focus more. I would always like to organize my house better, get more containers, bins etc, things like that to put everything in its place and not still look like we just moved in. There are some rooms that we use as a catch all, which most people do, but this is the year we officially look settled in and like we’ve been there for years.
- Cooking dinner more…cooking is something that I love to do, I’ve always loved it, but work recently has just worn me down to almost nothing once I get home and I hate that. Part of my routine I mentioned earlier was cooking dinner and it’s been going well so far. But like anything, we always tend to fall off our goals once January ends, so I want to change that. Not only will that get dinner for us. a healthier one than just a frozen pizza more often than not, but that also means I won’t have to buy Subway constantly for lunch the next day at work. It’s not the best on the pocketbook, but luckily it’s more on the healthier side.
- Read my Bible & find a devotional to do each day/week…Although I do try to have quiet time each week, even if it’s just in prayer, I really need to dive in and read my Bible so much more than I do. We just started 2 Peter in church last week, but unfortunately because of my job, I’ll probably have to miss like the 3 or 4 Sunday’s. I’m sad because it really sounded like an amazing series, so I’m going to just read it on my own, that way I can still focus in on what the church is learning at the moment. There’s also a specific devotional I’m searching for, but I’ll focus in on that later.
Those are just a few things I’m focusing on for the year. I know I’m going to fail, it’s just part of life. However, I’m really going to give it my all and try hard to get in the routine of all of this and hope it sticks!!
What are some of your New Years resolutions or goals for 2019?? Please share!!
Thanks for reading!!
