Wow..2016 for me has been a helluva ride! I’ve been pregnant, had a baby, pulled my kids out of daycare to be at home with me. In September, my oldest one started JK… needless to say, my home life has been pretty hectic! But in so many ways, I wouldn’t have done it without the help of my family, friends and God! I am so grateful for I have been blessed with happy, healthy, active children, a roof over my head, food on the table, all the necessities to live life and more! I also have been blessed with a business that I absolutely love and passionate about.. Am I at the income level that I desire? Nope. Not yet at least! But that doesn’t matter because as long as I’m helping my people with all my heart and giving them true value, I truly believe that the $$$ will trickle in abundance 😉
The only “wish” I have for me in the coming year is to be absolutely happy… I’m going to be real and transparent with you, although I know I’m not alone in this. Given all the things that I am grateful for, there is still uncontentment that fills me from time to time, not sure what is causing it. I guess I can use the excuse that I just had a baby as a reason for my mental unhappiness (postpartum). OR.. I COULD blame my spouse for not “making me happy”. OR.. I could blame it on my kids who are constantly screaming and fighting every 5 seconds.. When it comes down to it, I know that I’m the only one who is responsible for my own happiness. I’m generally a happy person on the outside, but I wanted to let you know that it’s not the case all the time.
Why am I sharing all of this? Well, to let y’all know I’m human, to start! AND because I’m not a big “New Years Resolution” person but I’m big on goals and progression and I wanted to share mine with you… For 2017, my main LIFE goal is to be more Happy (well, at least less sad! lol) So I gifted myself a journal called, “52 Lists for Happiness” by Moorea Seal. It’s a weekly guided journal to inspire, discover, reflect, acknowledge and ultimately transform your life by figuring out exactly what makes you happy! I’m so excited to start this journey and perhaps share some of the progressions (even set backs) along the way 🙂
