Just lifestyle changes.
Happy New year to all of you lovelies. The holidays went by so fast this year and can you believe it, we're about one week into 2010! There is just so much to talk about and tell you all. My trip to NYC was fantastic! My little peanut had a chance to enjoy all or her cousins, grandparents, aunts, uncles, you name it. She was so sad to leave now all she does is ask for her Abuela (grandmother) and to get on the plane with the video (JetBlue). *Sigh* It was fun while it lasted. Here are some pics:
I don't know about ya'll but when i get on a plane i take it serious!!! Lol!
Me, Leia and my grandmother - She's such a beautiful person and woman. I miss her already :(
Leia with all of the kids. They had so much fun this day.
Leia on Christmas day - her first real Christmas! She got this baby doll and was beaming!!! The picture doesn't do her initial reaction justice. Too cute!
We had a blast and I could not have asked God for more! Family, good food and presents? You can't beat it. Since I left my beloved home away from home I have had much time - like most of us to reflect. I am not now nor have I ever been one to create resolutions each year. I don't knock anyone else I just think it's a temporary solution to a "problem" when I don't need to be "fixed". I personally feel it's better to incorporate the change I want into my lifestyle and then the results I am looking for last.
So as a result of my reflection there are several things I want to incorporate into my lifestyle to see more change for the better.
Setting more realistic goals & not being afraid to attain them. I find that I am more willing to try new things and to push myself to take more calculated risks. Nothing wrong with a little more planning even while risk taking right? Don't wanna jump without a parachute.
In order to set & view my goals, I am taking time to write down the things I want to attain and the things I feel are impossible to achieve. God blows me away every time just when I think something is impossible & I submit it to Him, He comes through. Like that NYC Trip for Christmas. The hubs and I kept saying that we wouldn't go to New York and spend what we didn't have unless God blessed us... and He came through in a BIG way! three round trip tickets and one week before Christmas no less. HE. IS. AWESOME!
I am also taking steps with my daily plans now so I can see my goals for the future attained. Can you say Fashion show, hint hint ;) budgeting my finances, selecting venues, models, photographers, the whole nine yards. Something I never would have done I am challenging myself to do now and it is invigorating. Same goes with the munchkin, sadly she will be going to school soon, so I am saving money and looking for scholarships now so it's a breeze when then comes.
A couple of other goals quickly:
- to launch my take care of you initiative for moms... more on this later ;)
- to blog more consistently 2 -3 times a week instead of everyday is more realistic for me
- to re-launch my Aww... Inspiring Moms Interviews - we all need the support, tips and advice from those we find inspiring and who better than other moms to look to?
Enough said! ( I did ramble today) I am fired up and I cannot wait to take the remainder of 2010 by the reigns and ride this roller coaster called life out. Here's to a better me for 2010.
Don't forget to take care of you!
- Just a thought...
