Hello my loves and WELCOME TO 2015. I would be lying… if I said that I was ready to start 2015 with a bang. Let’s face it, it just about smacked me across my face silly like a baseball out of left field… hmmm… did I even explain that correctly? lol Needless to say, I really have no choice but to welcome it with open arms now that it’s here and embrace all of its many wonders while preparing myself for a year I wasn’t ready for and saying goodbye to one I wasn’t yet wanting to let go of. As I stop and think about it all… I’m not really sad to see 2014 go… I mean, while it had some awesome benefits – seriously, the latter of the year wasn’t on my favorite’s list – so c’est la vie. I am proud to say that while the year offered challenges that I overcame, it also opened my eyes to things I didn’t expect to experience but because of such, I am now going into 2015 with an open mind, a different outlook on life – a positive one, and an appreciation for what I have. I am able to close the books on 2014 (well, with exception to taxes of course) and confident that I can leave all that funky excess baggage, drama and what ever else I wasn’t happy with in the past and move forward.
I’ve made a few goals for 2015 and while I’m not going to share them all with you, I thought I would use a few of them as a way to bring positiveness into your day and hopefully give you a bit of organization and tools for the new year. One of the things I have been wanting to focus on in 2014, but didn’t get around to is to incorporate daily planning and organization in my life. Don’t laugh… while it may seem like I am all put together behind the scenes, I tend to let things like my daily planning fall through the cracks. Let’s face it – being a mother of 3 very active boys (2 of which are twins) and a wife to a busy busy hubby keeps me on my toes. With proper organization, my hope is that I will not let things fall through the cracks… like blog posts – for example. I get so backed up with things I feel like I NEED to do that I tend to let the things I WANT to do fall through. After looking through my blog this year, while I am so proud of the accomplishments I have made, it seems as though the “personal” touches that made my blog “me”… was lacking. With proper “blog management” and “goals” along with Daily Planning and even some journaling – I think that I can not only accomplish a lot more effectively – but also be efficient with my blog, daily duties and even unleash some of my creative side in my journal again and therefore giving me some outlet and release that I think I may be lacking in. Since I know this is not an easy task, I am in the process of putting together a daily or weekly (not sure which yet) task list that will allow me to get it all in order. I will share that printable with all of you once I have had the chance to finalize it. But for now, writing things down – holding myself accountable and giving myself deadlines will help in getting this important goal in check.
Whew… long winded, I know. But this is just a sneak peak of all things to come here. I really took a backseat in how I have been wanting things to be and now I have really decided that while I can’t have control over everything in my life… some things I just have to let go of… this, I know I can control and it’s my goal to do so.
Wishing you all a wonderful and fabulous 2015. I’m 5 days into the year and already feel refreshed, rejuvenated and ready to take it all on. It’s going to be a fabulous year – you just wait and see! So, your first post, a letter from the editor… is all about awesomeness in 2015.
Smooches & lots of wishes for blessings, love, happiness and prosperity!
