2015 held so much, the biggest being the birth of my daughter. Becoming a mother was definitely the best thing about 2015 to me. It’s been a crazy and exhausting year and 2016 will probably be the same, but I wouldn’t trade any of it.
My mind hasn’t fully grasped it’s a new year. Maybe it’s because I haven’t made any resolutions, but am just planning to keep taking life one day at a time. I tried setting some new years resolutions last year, but due to things in life that happened and were beyond my control, there were never actually resolved. (I can’t even remember what they were. 😛 ) So I have decided to just take everything in it’s stride. If I finish writing my newest book this year cool, if not, cool. If I am able to get back in shape, fantastic, if not, *shrug*, I’ll just chase a toddler around for exercise.
New year’s resolutions have never really worked for me. If I needed to make a change, I started right then and there, middle or end of the year or not. Plus, whenever I made a goal of finishing such-in-such novel, or reading so many books in one year, or whatever, something always happened, some unpredictable life event, that messed it all up. So this year no resolutions, just living. Just continuing to work on my health, on writing, on blogging, on relationships and we’ll see what 2016 brings.
Right now I plan on just being a wife, a mother, a home cook, a reader, a writer and clean eating lifestyle liver (and momentary grammar forgetter). So 2016, shall we dance?
