Working On Me:Self confidence is one area where I want to thrive the most. Someone who feels empowered and successful can accomplish anything and overcome obstacles in their path. Getting beyond the anxiety, worries, and fears in my own head will help me to believe in and achieve my goals.
Parenting:I like to consider myself a pretty good mom, but we can all find ways to improve. I know I can do better with managing my expectations and teaching my kids to believe in themselves. In this age of helicopter moms (yes I am one), I want my children to know that they can and should learn be self reliant. By letting them start making their own choices and be more independent, I hope to help them grow and thrive as well.
Time Management:This is by far one of my weakest areas. Working from home does come with a lot of distractions, and I often lose focus. I need to make a plan and stick to it to make sure I am using my time wisely. Maybe this way I can start going to sleep before 2am!
Health:We need to incorporate healthy eating and exercise into our daily lives. I know what needs to be done, and have done it before for myself; but now I want to teach my family and make these lifestyle changes a habit for all of us. I do not want my children to grow up struggling with weight and health issues like I did, so teaching them early is key.
Family Time:We do spend a lot of time together as a family; but school and extracurricular activities keep us running. As the kids get older, I know it is just going to get worse. I want to make sure that we always take the time to enjoy each other's company and make memories in the everyday. This year I hope to have more opportunities to travel and go on adventures together as well.
Blogging:I enjoy working from home and getting to write about the things and people I love. In 2017, I am going to learn to be a better blogger by attending conferences and webinars, meeting with mentors, and hitting the books. The world is always growing and changing, and I want to make sure I am too. This year I am going to THRIVE in all areas of my life. Succeeding and flourishing takes work and isn't always easy, but I am committed to taking the steps necessary to make it happen. How will you THRIVE in 2017?
