Pretty pumped about a new year-long link up I’ve found with Momfessionals. Come play along a couple Tuesdays each month!
Twenty-fifteen. What resolutions or goals do I have for myself?
First and foremost I’m hoping that over the next twelve months I figure out this parenting thing as much humanly possible. I know that no 2 days will be the same and as soon as I think I have it figured out, it will all come tumbling down. BUT. But, I do hope (or expect?) I am able to at least get a good handle on things.
I want to feel better. The past 2 months or so have taken it’s toll in more ways than one. Sure, I’d love to shed some baby weight, but truthfully I know it’s more important for me to get my head right. Part of that includes feeling good about how I’m fueling myself and part of it includes addressing a bunch of other emotional baggage I won’t got y’all down with. For now. Remember, I don’t have much of a filter.
I want to run another half marathon. Ack. Did I just make that public!? I have zero plans to begin tackling that goal until spring time, when there is daylight for more than handful of hours. And I can secure a safe running stroller to haul my mini mister around in. There is only one circumstance that I’ll allow myself to bow out on that one…
I’d love to be pregnant by the end of 2015. (hahahahhahahaa) No, for real. Craig, pick your jaw up off of the floor. Even though I’ve been up since 3am this morning with an angry baby, I meant it when I said that I’d do it all again tomorrow. Turns out baby fever doesn’t always go away when you have a baby. And while I’m certainly not actually looking to get pregnant tomorrow, I’d be thrilled if it happened October, November, December. …because you can clearly plan these things exactly how you’d like them (insert sarcasm font). Especially with my track record. Right.
Finally, I want to continue to practice setting boundaries, showing respect, withholding judgement and giving unconditional love. This one is a little deep. I’ve learned a lot about myself in the last twelve months. I’ve recognized that I most certainly have room to grow in these respects. I have no intention to set out and change anyone else. But, what is it that Gandhi said? “Be the change you wish to see in the world”? I’m doin’ it.
What goals or resolutions do you have for 2015?
