Finally… January is over!
Or, well, it will be once this posts at midnight. 😉
January was rather tough, and so I’m quite glad to say ‘goodbye’ to it. Not that I think it’s the month’s fault… But still, it will be nice to have a clean slate, so to speak. I told Nate just the other day that I see February 1st as a New Year’s redo.
He responded by bringing Chinese food home, since that’s our New Year’s Eve tradition. (I think there’s a slight chance that he was just craving Chinese food… But we’ll give him the benefit of the doubt and say that he was just being really sweet and supportive). 🙂
Anyway, today offers more than just a brand new month full of possibility. It begins my journey to find value in myself again. As a wife, and especially as a mom, it is SO easy to lose myself in caring for others. Last year, I never made the time to exercise… I felt guilty if I spent money on myself, so I dropped routines that I deemed unnecessary (but that would have helped me feel pampered and rejuvenated)…
I rarely made time for me…
And honestly, I’m feeling it.
So I spent a good amount of time last week formulating a plan that would allow me to still be the best mom and wife, while also taking care of MYSELF.
Today begins my journey.
I’m a little scared of it, because I know it’s going to require work. But I’m going to be blogging about this journey on a regular basis, because I want you to help keep me accountable. 🙂 I’ll share more about what my plans are and what I really feel I need to work on very soon…
But I’m going to leave you with this little intro for today, because I’m headed off to bed. I’m setting my alarm clock for an early morning workout!
Wish me luck!! 🙂
