New Year | New Goals

January 5, 2018

Happy New Year Loves! I didn't have much time to dedicate a post to closing out 2017 with all the holiday madness. December was a busy month for us, our son didn't go on winter break till the 22nd because of the hurricane makeup days at school and I was working almost every night those last two weeks before Christmas till 1am (you know how retail is that time of year). I also hosted our Christmas Eve party this year. As you can see I was busy, busy, busy. 

For my first post of 2018 I wanted to share with you all my goals for the year. I have to say this might be the first year that I set goals and share them with others. I always thought it was best to keep things to yourself. That way if you accomplished them or not, no one would know but you. This year is going to be different though, I want to create a vision board and be able to see it everyday. I want to share my goals with you all and be able to come back here and say I crushed them. 

Some of you know that I am currently enrolled in school. However, I am only going part time because of work and of course my kids. Taking two classes each semester has been pretty stressful for me but I know that I am capable of taking one or two more per semester. I know it will take more time away spent from my husband and kids but reality is the faster I finish these classes the faster I can graduate. 

My goal is to try to read at least 6 books this year. It doesn't sound like much but it's important to set a realistic goal. I want to read books that are inspiring and motivating. If you have any suggestions please leave them in the comments. 

This one is going to be the hardest for me. I want to be able to take a fun family vacation every year. I tend to spend a lot though and I know that this will mean I will have to take saving money seriously. I do have a plan for this that I believe will work but that just means I will have to put in more work on my blog. 

As i'm finishing up this post i'm thinking how on earth will I have time to work out with all the time that my family, school, work, and the blog require. I don't know if I am pushing it a little with this one but I have to try. I am not trying to loose weight I just want to get fit. There has been plenty of times where my husband and I start working out and then all of a sudden we stop. My goal is to focus on preventing that from happening again. I know we can do it. 

2018 I am ready! I know it's going to be hard but doable. There is a quote posted on the stairs at my school that says "There's no elevator to success, you have to take the stairs." 
That is the first quote that's going up on my vision board. Do you all have any goals for this year? What are they? Let's crush them together!
