I always make some kind of resolution, but I usually change how I make a resolution each year. Last year, Jimmy and I wrote up a weight loss contract, and it worked! In years past, I always pick a word(s). This year I have picked two words and then some loose goals for 2014. With a new baby coming and motherhood on the horizon, I am setting gentle and adjustable goals for myself.

Thoughts to Remember:

Learn to flow and adapt into the role of motherhood.

Make time for our marriage and nurture it.

Take care of myself through exercise, eating well, and making some time to write (every little bit helps).

Learn to gracefully ignore unwanted parenting advice.

Learn to graciously ask for and accept help when needed.

Remember that this first year will fly be. Take it in. Be grateful.

Be gentle with yourself and Jimmy.

Do your best and then let it go.

 Words to Remember:

FLOW: go from one place to another in a steady stream; moving along in a continuous, steady stream; to move or run smoothly with unbroken continuity; to be fluid.

ADAPT: to change your behavior, so it is easier to live in a particular place or situation; adjust or modify fittingly.

Concrete Goals:

Lose ten pounds between April 30th – June 30th

Eat greens daily

Write three times a week

Date nights once a month
