Some people spend New Year’s Eve surrounded by friends and loved ones at a lavish party, I spent New Year’s Eve stuck on a (very long) car ride with a puking preschooler in the back seat. Yup, that pretty much summed up 2017.
It started with the best of intentions. I wrote a post about choosing the word “renew” for my year. And then…. chaos. Things I thought were going well fell apart and 2017 became more about flying by the seat of my pants and just making it through. But it wasn’t all bad. I did manage to lose 20lbs after packing more than just baby weight on through the chaos. I did have a little more self care than the prior year and my home is slightly less messy than the year before. My husband and I are still searching for time for “us” but we are finding more time to breathe these days. I don’t think I have made any great strides in my spiritual life but my faith even through the chaos remained strong.
So what about 2018?
My hopes for 2018 are much the same as they were 1 year ago, but its time to REFOCUS on those hopes, dreams, goals. This year I will make progress in those same areas and more. There will be more intention and planning for things that really matter to me.
“Our intention creates our reality.”
Do you choose a word of the year? What are your intentions for 2018?
