Looking For Something?

New Year, New Beginnings // 2019 Goals

Happy New Year! Can you believe that it is 2019?! That means next year is 2020, which seems so crazy to me! We had a nice night in for NYE and I wouldn't have had it any other way. Michael smoked ribs and they were delicious! He got a smoker for Christmas and if you watch my IG stories, you know he has been smoking meat almost every day during Christmas break. Lol. While I was putting Lennox down for a nap yesterday, we were talking about 2019 and I told him his third birthday would be in 2019, so when he woke up from his nap he was expecting his birthday party. ;) So of course, we got party hats, party noise makers, and cake! He loved it!

When I look back on 2018, it was a good year. Not too exciting but overall it was good! You will always have highs and lows and for the first time in awhile, we actually had more highs than lows. I pray we have the same this year with a little bit more excitement! I have so much I want to accomplish in 2019 and not sure it will all get done, but it's better to overachieve than not.

When it comes to New Year resolutions, I am not one to make any. I would rather make goals I really want to achieve because I feel like resolutions never make it out of January. Making tiny goals that lead up to a big goal has always been my go to. I love the feeling of accomplishing something even if it is tiny because that just means I am closer to the big goal! So here a few of my goals this year. They are very broad and may never really be accomplished.

  • Continue growing as a mother and wife
  • Be more confident
  • Be more adventurous 
  • Continue growing Jen Miracle
  • Overall just be happy
I know these are VERY broad and can they really ever be accomplished? Not really because I want these 5 goals to continue growing. I never want them to ever come to an end or a complete accomplished goal. I know that sounds a little odd but these are the things I really want to continue growing on. Now if I really had to choose specific topics I want to achieve this year, here a few things...
  • Maintain a healthy lifestyle-exercise more and eat less junk
  • Step out of my comfort zone with my blog pictures
  • Grow and utilize Pinterest for my blog
  • Become more of a blogger than Instagrammer
  • Hit 50K on IG and hopefully 100k by the end of 2019 
  • Go to NYFW (New York Fashion Week)
  • Finish my "cloffice" closet/office
  • Kitchen Renovation
  • Build a deck in our backyard- I won't physically build it but you get the point
  • Pay off debt
  • More date nights with my husband
  • Finish little home projects 
I am sure there will be more added to this list as the year goes by but here are a few to get me started. I hope you have a happy, healthy, and full of love year. 2019 is going to be great for you and me! I can feel it!
