New Year, Same Me, Gets Me Every Time

IMG_1782

Mr. Gets Me Every Time and I spent the holidays in Florida, visiting my family and it was a great, relaxing few days away from work/chores/cold. Sunny skies and warm afternoons were just what we needed. I just ordered a print of this photo I snapped to help me get through the rest of the winter too.

We’re a full week and a half into 2016, so I thought I’d hit you with a few “new year” type of thoughts.

On Resolutions. I didn’t really make any. Each day I’m trying to be a better version of myself (i.e. having more patience with myself & others.) And each week I’m trying to do things that make life easier (i.e. cooking a huge batch of chicken on Sunday, or packing a lunch the night before.) Like the title of the post says, new year… same me.

On One Little Word. Lots of people pick a word for the year and use it as a type of mantra for all types of situations they approach. I’ve done this before, and I can never seem to stick with it, so I didn’t really pick a word either. I did think about it though and the word that came to me was “open.” I’m keeping it pretty open-ended, though.

On Goals. Again. Didn’t make any plans for this. Thought about things like organizing all my digital photos or finishing project x, y and z. But, I’m deciding not to make it official. I did buy a planner, and I am trying to write down things I want to do, just to have a running list. (I also set a goal on GoodReads to read 25 books this year. I made it to 21 last year, we’ll see how it goes.)

On 2016. Basically, I feel incredibly grateful for how 2015 turned out. It was a year to reevaluate and reset. I’m looking forward to what the year ahead brings and I’m looking forward to sharing some of it here.
