Ah yes, a new year a new you. BARF! I think I've posted something similar like this before. While I love the feelings of refreshing and renewing attitudes a new year brings I do think it's hogwash to make "resolutions". Yes, I used to be one of the people who made resolutions and I STILL believe in motivating yourself, it just has to stick throughout the year. I'm reading a book right now that I got for my birthday called "Living Well and Spending Less" by Ruth Soukup and even though I'm not even half way through the book it's the first time I've ever tabbed pages and highlighted with a real highlighter! I love it so far! It's REALLY invigorating me to live a better life. I then was perusing Facebook and saw a video posted about zero waste living and THAT made me more curious. I, again as you do, was scrolling Facebook tonight and a pal posted about a documentary on Netflix about living minimalistic and it made me ill, to look around at all the STUFF we own and still think that we need more! I literally want to cancel the contract we're under building a new house, it has effected me that badly. While my husband has talked me off that ledge I still think we can do a LOT to live more minimal and zero waste in our lives. I've love 2017 to be about finding myself because I have felt so lost this later half of the year. Perhaps it was the new baby in our family and the way that damn postpartum affected me, perhaps its it not bringing home a paycheck for the last 6 months or any number of things that are, for no particular reason, leaving me feeling negative and desolate inside. I literally have SO MUCH to be grateful for and this new year I want to focus on those. My husband who is my soul mate and my everything is always standing behind me rooting me on. My mom who is essentially the only family I have in town who is a source of wisdom and love.
This year I will hone in on becoming the best me yet!
Thus far, starting Wednesday, I've started eating healthier and am making a movement to actually structuring my days, starting with a daily schedule to keep me on task and have everything laid out in front of me. From drinking water and eating right to when to go to bed and read a book. I feel confident this will be great. Stay tuned!
