I'm Ready for you 2017!!

Wednesday, January 11, 2017

Hi friends!! Happy Wednesday!!!

So...I have already done two posts on goals I have set for myself for this year, but I thought I would do one more final post :) I am joining Shay and Erika for their "Workin it Wednesdays" series and today's topic is "New Year's Goals."  Perfect springboard to wrap up my thoughts on my hopes for this year!!

Last week- I wrote a post on some marriage goals Aaron and I have set for ourselves.
You can check it out HERE!
In a nutshell- we had our precious 5th baby last year as well as SEVERAL unexpected surgeries between the two of us. The last 6 months of 2016 was spent recovering and just trying to make sure we were still getting our kids to school and that they were fed. HA!
Our goals for this year are to do small things, consistently, to show each other that we are a PRIORITY. We plan to focus on "US" more and I am so excited we have a plan in place to do this!  
Yesterday- I posted about my health/wellness goal for 2017- you can read the full post HERE! I am been a Weight Watchers member off and on for the last 10 years and this past Saturday I re-joined (I was an online member) as a "meetings" member. My goal is to reach my "goal" weight and become a Lifetime Weight Watchers member!  This has been a long time coming for me...I have been pregnant or nursing a baby for the last 8 years and my body has always kind of been in "limbo." I am ready to get back to the weight where I feel my best and maintain it!  
Finally- I just want to make the most out of the year ahead of us. 
2017 is going to be a BIG year for our family (can't wait to share more about WHY soon!) and I don't want the trivial inconveniences and challenges that life can present us to throw me off of my main focus which is LOVING and TAKING CARE of my family. 

I specifically want to be MORE: 
Patient
Forgiving
Selfless
FUN

I want to worry LESS about:
messes
my kids' "special" behavior (HA!)
what people think of me

I have already been prayerfully focusing on these things and just in the last few days God has really spoken to me and challenged me to look at specific ways I can be making positive changes. So thankful for that!!

2017: I am ready for you!!!
What are some goals/dreams/aspirations you have for this year?? I would love to know!

Hope you have the BEST day!


 Linking up with the fabulous Shay and Erika today!
