It has been a massive year. I’ve been focused on my master’s program; I’m wrapping up my thesis now. YAY! I started a new job as a teacher, which is amazing. LOVE IT! All the while, my little ones are growing up.
It has been an amazing year. I’ve grown so much as a writer, professional, and person but that growth has come with some personal sacrifice. I haven’t been able to post as often as I’d like. I’ve been forced to cancel trips with my family because I’ve needed to meet deadlines. I’ve seen a decline in my health. I rely heavily on caffeine — soda and coffee — and sugar to keep me going through my crazy hectic days.
With the new year approaching fast, I’ve been thinking a lot about what I want and need for the upcoming year. I don’t like the idea of resolutions, they seem meant to be broken, but I like to set goals for myself for the year. Here are my goals for 2017:
- Eat healthier
- Exercise more often
- Take time to write
- Post to my blog
- Wake up earlier
- Embrace my own beauty
- Spend more time with my kids
- Find “me” time every day
- Attend more conferences/workshops
- Meet up with friends once a month
What are your goals for 2017?
