Happy New Year friends!
I hope everyone had a great holiday season with loved ones. Like with every new year, setting goals is the norm to start a fresh start for a new page in our lives. This year I wanted to set goals that will bring intention in my life. Intentionally spent more time doing this and less time doing that. Intentionally focusing the time I spent with my boy and husband. Intentionally using my gifts and passions. I am not a great writer and I know that, so bear with me here! I hope what I am trying to communicate is translating into these sentences. There are four individual groups I set goals for. Personal Goals, Atticus Goals, Home Goals and Marriage Goals. This will help me be intentional with each one of them and give them my uninterrupted time when spend with each. In only the few short days this year has had, I have noticed a change in me. I truly want to change some aspects and unhealthy habits in my life. I see a lifestyle for myself and family this year. Thank you so much for all the support you all continuously give me through this space and my social media platforms. Hope to communicate more and more with you this year!
