With all that said, I wanted to take a quick minute to reflect on 2015 and how wonderful it was for our family: We discovered we were expecting, Marcus turned three, we took trips to Cabo and Yosemite, we saw the Royals play and win Game One of the World Series, but most importantly, we welcomed Julia into our lives. 2015 was pretty spectacular, and will be a tough one to beat.
However, now it's time to focus on this year.
Resolutions aren't really my thing. Only once in my life can I remember making a resolution and actually sticking to it (the year was 2008, and I vowed to run a half marathon that year... I did. I haven't followed through with any other resolutions since). So! Like many other bloggers, this year I'm going to focus on a word. For 2016 I've chosen the word "Focused."
1. My family.
When I'm with them I really want to focus on them. Not my phone. Not the computer. I want to be focused on them and only them. I want my people to feel like they have my full attention. I don't want to hear myself say, "Hang on." "Just a sec." "One more minute." "Just let me finish this." I'm going to try my best to focus on how much time I'm actually spending in my phone and on the computer. I want to lift my head up out of the technology suck and really focus on my loved ones. Family is of utmost importance, and they deserve to feel that way.
2. My fitness.
If I'm being 100% honest, I've done a lot of phoning it in with my fitness and workouts lately. I've come up with too many excuses to skip getting in a good workout or going for a run. Sure, I'm tired, but aren't we all? My kids deserve the best me, and to be that way I need to spend a little time focused on me. I also want want to focus on an ends to the means with the miles I run. I've talked a lot about finding half marathons to run. It's time to find them, focus on training, and run them.
3. This blog.
I love this space. But, I really want to focus on its content. There is always room to improve my writing and photos, and I'm hoping 2016 allows me the focus to bring our stories to life with good, quality writing.
So, 2016, I'm focused on you.
Now tell me, what goals do you have set for this year?
