It’s that time of year again…
That time of year where we look back at the last 365 days and detail all the things we did wrong. The things that we wished we had done, but never found the time to actually do. The time of year where we really dwell on the shoulda, coulda, woulda’s.
Not this year, not doing it. I am not going to sit here and dwell on all the things I failed at last year. Not going to think about how I should have tried just a little bit harder. Or how maybe this year will be the year that I finally lose that last 15 pounds of baby weight, if I just stick to the plan and go to the gym 5 days a week. I mean COME ON, my baby turns 4 this year… I should probably stop calling it “baby weight.”
So here’s what I’m going to do instead. I’m going to take a quick minute to turn around and look at the last year. Just a quick minute – no more. I’m going to note that there were ups and downs. It wasn’t all good, but it wasn’t all bad either. There’s definitely room for improvement, but how boring would life be if you have already achieved everything you could ever dream of??
Ok, enough of that…
Now, I’m turning around again. Looking forward to this next year. I don’t know what’s out there. I don’t know what my life is going to look like 6 months from now, 1 month from now. Hell, I don’t even know what its going to look like tomorrow!
But you know what I’m point to do next?
I’m going to take a step forward, and then another, and another. I’m going to keep moving forward and living each day as fully as I can, in that moment.
And I’m going to keep doing that every day
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed reading and will stop by again to read more about our adventures in homeschooling. Keep on embracing life’s amazing gift of chaos!
