Routines Over Resolutions

I must be honest. This year I struggled with writing a “2017 reflection post” because honestly, I didn’t feel like I achieved much last year. I had to come to grips with the fact that although I didn’t achieve as many goals as I wanted to, the important things that I needed to work on, I did. One thing I’ve realized is that I’m not a fan of the word “resolution” and as I scrolled through my YouTube suggestion list last week I came upon a video called “Routines over Resolutions”. 

As I watched this video I started writing out a routine for myself starting at 4:00 am. I don’t know about you, but resolutions can be a bit daunting especially when you don’t achieve them. And how many of us have made the same New Years resolution of losing weight (for example) year after year while not actually losing the extra holiday weight that we have gained? So I said to myself, this routine vs resolution thing may actually work for me.

Making yourself a schedule that you follow just might help you get those things accomplished that you want to get accomplished and by doing this day after day it will start to stick to the point it feels strange not to do it. So this year I suggest that you focus on a routine instead of a bunch of resolutions. I have yet to really dive into my routine so I can’t really share how it’s working for me but I can say I don’t feel as much pressure about going this new route as I’ve felt in years past. 

Routines vs Resolutions....What are your thoughts?

Christmas Happy

This year, I can't lie, my Christmas music has been getting played a bit more than last Christmas. My favorite Christmas movie, "Home Alone" has been in heavy rotation. I can't wait to get home everyday to plug up my Christmas tree and enjoy the lights. I love seeing the ornaments shine bright, the beautiful wrapping paper, and gift bags under the tree. My husband asked me the other day, "Why are you in such a Christmas mood this year? I mean, not that you weren't last year or the year before that. It's just extra noticeable this year." I told him that I'm just grateful, I'm thankful!

Last year I didn't have it to give. I couldn't do for others and those in my family like I wanted too. I love watching the excitement on the faces of those I love when they see what I've given them. Not only am I grateful to be able to give, I'm grateful for those times that I couldn't. It has shown me that no matter how big or little the gift is, it truly is the thought that counts. I know that sounds "cliche". But really, it is! I've also learned to have an appreciation for the memories and the times shared with those I love more than anything! 

I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas! Eats lots, laugh hard, and create amazing memories!
