UA-114812973-16 Well Rounded: New Years Resolutions Thoughts

New Years Resolutions Thoughts

I'm one of those people who every year rushes to make New Years Resolutions in between Christmas and New Year and then manages to maybe keep one of them throughout the year. But with my huge life change coming in three months (guys I'm going to be a mom, I'm going to be responsible for another human life!!!) I've been thinking a lot about who I need to be becoming and who Heavenly Father wants me to be for this little guy. Millions of thoughts, a few sleepless nights (all though that might just be pregnancy....) and here I am January 1, 2018, without a list made or resolutions set. 

Here is why: I'm taking change seriously this year, probably should have years ago, but can't look back right? I don't want to make a list just to make a list. I want to really ponder who I want to become and who my Heavenly Father needs me to be. I want to pray about what habits I should be gaining this year to prepare for what is ahead. I want to be 100% committed to my goals and habits for 2018 that I don't give up in 2 weeks or 2 months. Now I know come December 31, 2018, I won't have been perfect and I'm preparing myself for that, but I do want to look back and be proud of what I've learned, gained, become this year.

BUT I also didn't want to drag it out and hit March and still not have any goals or habits I'd like to create set in place. Because let's be honest, I'd totally do that. I thrive off of deadlines. So as I was scrolling through the Instagram world one day I found a great idea from @Momstrongutah. See here. One of her clients said she spends all of January and does a lot of self-reflection. 

"How she takes time to sit down and truly write down realistic goals... how she turns that “full steam ahead” movement into one of slow and steady consistency so she feels prepared."

So this is what I'm doing this year. I'm going to slowly start creating habits I'd like to see in myself. You know the usual, be healthier, exercise etc. but I'm also going to really spend January to self-reflect, to ponder and pray, and seek guidance from the spirit of what goals I need to set for 2018. Now some of my goals are pretty simple and don't need a lot of self-reflection but this little guy growing in my belly has me wanting to become the absolute best I can be for him and so I'm going to really take that serious this year. Because, and I may be biased, he deserves the best! And (I can't believe I'm actually saying this) I deserve the best for myself. And so do you. We ALL do! 

I do have to admit I love the idea of "New Year, New You". I know it isn't literally a clean slate but it feels like another chance to become a better version of myself. It may be all mental but I'm completely okay with that. So stay posted for a February post where I'll share my goals/habits for 2018!

So enough ranting - tell me what you do goal setting or new years resolutions or whatever you want to call it, or just thoughts on new years in general!
