365 days, 365 posts. That’s one of my resolutions. I’m always torn about New Years’s. It feels so melancholy. It’s a new opportunity but you can’t help but think about everything you haven’t accomplished. I’m choosing to focus on the positive.
It’s one of the many gifts, James has given me. I feel like I can accomplish whatever I put my mind to, I just have to invest the time in it. I’m really hoping this is the year that I start putting the pieces together. I think the piece that was always missing is that I actually had to invest time in myself. Find the time to hone and acquire the skills I need. I’m getting better that, I’m hoping this blog in a way keeps me accountable. I’d love for James to look back and read this one day and see not only his journey into the person he will become but my journey into the mother he knows.
New Years always make me sentimental but I never know if I should make a big deal out of it or treat it like another day. This year, I didn’t make a big deal by choice. But I’m using it as an opportunity to reset. I’m not talking about a complete overhaul but as a chance to get the ball rolling. James and I are going to make 2018 proud.
