Hey Gals! I may be a little late to the party but it's still the first week of the new year so I thought I'd share some of my priorities for the coming year. And I say priorities and not resolutions because I'm trying a bit of a different approach this year. Normally I'm alllll about the resolutions - what's not to love about a fresh start to the year where you can make all sorts of fabulous plans to be your best self possible.
This is obviously a no brainer and something that's always been important to me, but when looking at it from the perspective of what is a priority to me, this is hands down, number one. I mentioned a little while back that my dad is having some health issues and as hard as it's been on my family, it's only made me realize how precious our time together is. I also want to focus on being more present and live in the moment. I'm definitely guilty of browsing on my phone when GG and I unwind after dinner or when Little M is happy to entertain himself with his toys. And while that's fine here or there, I really want to focus on quality time and the here and now with my family.
Having this blog for the past 2.5 years has been nothing short of amazing. I think it's easy to get a little complacent or burnt out when you do anything for an extended period of time and I definitely feel like that happened to me with blogging towards the end of last year. But blogging still is such a creative passion of mine and I'm beyond ready to breathe some new life into it in 2016. I've said it before and I'll say it again, thank goodness for B, because she truly is my support system and the one who kept the lights on here at TSN whenever I was absent or just out of creative juice. And on top of that, how awesome is it to have a hobby that you share with your bff?! So all this to say, I cannot wait for all that 2016 has to bring on the blogging front. I've already signed up for a couple of webinars and have a running post idea list that makes me so excited for all of the great content that's to come!
The Printable Gal! I'd say this is the biggest area that I put on the back burner in 2015 due to "lack of time" and when I look back on that, it only disappoints and frustrates me, which only means this needs to become a major priority in 2016! Being able to create through crafting is seriously good for my soul. Being down in my craft room is my happy place and nothing beats the satisfaction of creating something your proud of... except for maybe when someone pays actual money for said item! So I can't wait to resuscitate my Etsy shop, and really see if I can make a go out of selling my paper goods. My first goal is to add lots more items to the shop and just get the word out there about it! I suspect this will be the area I need the most accountability with, so please feel free to call me out if so time goes by and it's crickets from me about it!
Anyone else taking a different approach to your resolutions this year? I'm really excited with my outlook and think 2016 has the potential to be my best year yet!
