Another year come and gone! I haven’t taken the opportunity to reflect on this year yet. I need to do that. It is the last Sunday of 2018 and this year was incredibly insane. So much happened in 1 year that I almost can’t wrap my head around all of it.
I took my blog from a hobby to a business in 2018, yet I still get down on myself because I am always looking forward instead of looking at today. I know I am doing this and I have been working on it. I have been sort of taking the last week off and will do the same next week. I need to try to allow myself to do the things that I need to do as a mom, wife, and individual without feeling like I always need to be working. The hustler inside of me though always needs to feel productive like I am working towards something. That is likely why I have accomplished all that I have this year.
We moved from Washington to California to be closer to our family- which is great. However, all of the reasons we left CA in the first place have resurfaced and we miss the Pacific Northwest terribly. It’s a constant conflict in our lives. We have decided to work on our family, so we can get some people and all move up there together, lol. That notion will be continued on a later date.
We went to my Grandma’s on Christmas but Claire had a cold and I was fighting one, so I wasn’t into it. December was the busiest month of my entire career. Along with regular tasks plus all of the Christmas preparation us moms have to do I was COMPLETELY burnt out by Christmas Eve. I just wanted to lay in a bed and sleep for 3 days. I can’t do this again because it takes away from the holiday joy.
For New Years we will lay low and probably eat Chinese food and maybe have some champagne. I am starting a Whole 30 on the 1st and that will be my focus on the blog for the month of January. I will be adapting a lot of my recipes and trying some new ones.
I have been having massive hair loss, not feeling great, and getting bouts of anxiety and depression. I take my CBD oil which helps tremendously with that, but I know my diet could be better so I am stepping it up with the Whole 30. I will share my weekly meal plans with you and how I am switching up recipes, what I am meal prepping and more. Make sure you are following on Instagram or Facebook because the stories will be my big focus for sharing.
I don’t make resolutions. I never have and I never will. I am a firm believer if I need to make changes then I make them. I don’t set a date, or whatever. I do however believe in goal setting. I will be sitting down to set my goals for 2019. I smashed all of my goals for 2018, so I am ready to make 2019 a HUGE year!!
I hope you have all had a wonderful holiday season and that whatever you dream that you will manifest it and make it happen in 2019!
Happy New Year!
