Hey there 2017

2016 has officially come to a close and here comes 2017 with its fierceness and ice – as in literally. It snowed New Year’s Eve harder than it ever did this winter and now it’s practically a skating rink wherever you go. Our truck was on 4-wheel-drive and it still felt like we were floating around. 

So it’s the second day of the year and I tried to think of resolutions but you know what? I don’t know if I want to do resolutions/goals. I find they are stressful and something that is being set up for failure  (unless you are into that kind of thing). Obviously there are things I want to improve and change but setting up a goal will put too much pressure and I don’t like that. I’d rather go with the flow of life and and “incorporate” all the things I want to do. As an  example, my baking! I did say that I wanted to bake more and be a ‘home baker’ – if you will – and without trying so hard to force it like a goal, instead it just worked out that my husband’s ‘baby-daddy time’ is also ‘mommy alone time’ and that’s when I bake! 

It’s simple things I want to incorporate and I believe it’s just a matter of having a routine of sorts, especially being a parent. 2017 will be a year of self-will, perseverance and patience since it’s the year that

  • I go back to work after being off for an entire year. This is challenging because my son is currently very very attached to me and sometimes has trouble being left alone with other people for long periods of time (even his own father). Then there’s other challenges within that as hes still breastfed and absolutely haaaattteesss the bottle and refuses to drink milk from anything that is NOT my boob. So… How is daddy or grandma going to deal with that?!
  • Speaking of going back to work, I have to readjust to being a working person again. I have ‘re-train’ in all the procedures, learn new procedures and work with new people. 
  • My son turns A YEAR OLD.  Emotions. That’s all I have to say about that.
  • Figuring myself out as a human being again. How to get that part of myself back that is not a mom. How to get back to being satisfied with myself on all levels physically, emotionally, and mentally. So exercise a bit more, maybe start a journal and meditate? Yoga? 

So 2017 – A YEAR OF GETTING INTO A GROOVE. Yes, see I’m learning as I go. If anything, I just have to get my groove back and make this a great year for not only me but my family! My hubby and I will figure it out! Positive thoughts.

    I think New Years resolutions can be stressful too! They motivate me early on, but then I don’t pay attention to them as much. I decided to do frequent small goals instead.

    That sounds tough to go back to work after a being off for a year! I hope it goes well, and that your son will be ok when you’re not at home. I can’t believe he’ll be a year old! Time flies!

    Happy new year! I hope 2017 will be good for you!
