New year, SAME me! Why New Years resolutions are so overrated.

Well, I know it has been a hot minute since y’all have heard anything from me…  I was focused on celebrating Abigail’s first Christmas, planning her first Birthday party (which I will have a blog about this week) and soaking up every minute of all our family time!

So……  HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!  Welcome to 2018 y’all, I am so excited to see where my blog is going to take me this year and grow as a blogger, mom and wife!

With a new year always comes the influx of gym goes (always made for a good laugh in step class, but can’t knock someone for trying), diet fads and the “new year, new me” mottos.

It never fails, as soon as that ball drops at midnight everyone has New Year goals to;

  • Loose weight
  • Go to the gym more
  • Eat healthy
  • Stop drinking
  • Become more organized
  • Find that dream job
  • Be the best you

While there is nothing wrong with this if that is what you believe works for you, however… I have never been one for the whole “new year, new me” thing.  I’ve always felt that I don’t need it to be a new year for me to say “I’m going to do ____ this year”.  I am always going to strive to be the best Mom, Wife and employee, I don’t need to make it my New Years resolution to make it happen.

Is my goal to still loose the baby weight (a year later!)?  YES, but that’s a goal I’ve had since I gave birth and continue to keep until it is accomplished.  It is also my goal to improve and expand my knowledge of photography, not because it is January 2018 but because it is a passion of mine.

New Years gets treated like you are all the sudden given a re-do in life.  If you find yourself in a position where you feel the need to re-invent and re-vamp your life…  Why wait until January 1st to make it your New Years resolution to change?  

So, cheers to making 2018 freaking awesome and better than 2017!  Being the best you can be, not because it’s a resolution but because YOU want to be!
