My Life

The Sky Is The Limit

It’s the first day of 2018 and all I want to do is just lounge around and drink lots and lots of water.

You see, last night hubby and I went out to a party together for the first time since having our baby girl – it’s been over 2 years! My mother was kind enough to baby-sit on the biggest night of the year and we really enjoyed ourselves! My feet are throbbing from dancing like a prisoner who has been granted bail for one night only.

Now, I am not one to set New Years resolutions – I think it’s all a load of bull. So the key words I am muttering to myself this year are, “Keep Going!”

Keep giving love and showing love to those that celebrate your success and are there with you in the trenches.

Keep saving – with money in the bank, the future possibilities will be endless!

Keep working harder – you will continue to shine and add in value, be it professionally or socially.

Keep drinking your water – your skin and body will thank you.

Keep sleeping 7-8 hours a day – you will be a more efficient than ever!

Keep reading – as your dad told you a long long time ago, “knowledge is power”

Keep your active lifestyle going – there will be pain, sweat and tears but it’ll all worth it when you slip into those tight jeans with ease.

Keep going to church – we were created to glorify God.

Keep smiling – there is not need to treat things so seriously, take it one day at a time and your goals will be reached.

Keep dedicating time to yourself – there’s no guilt or shame in doing absolutely nothing.  It’s good for your mind, body and soul.

The Practical

This is a list of the day-to-day things that I want to really incorporate into my life:

Pack my lunch four out of five work days.

Commit to blogging at least three times a week.

Negotiate with my workplace so that I can work from home one day a week – reduce daycare costs.

Consolidate all my superannuation into one account and keep track of it.

A Real Challenge

Now this is something that is going to get me out of my comfort zone:

I am challenging myself to not buy any new clothes or accessories in 2018. As part of this challenge I have to use what I have now for all occasions and events that will pop up. This is effective right now. 

When I told my husband and mother about this challenge they just about cried with laughter. Just for that I am going to go even harder to prove my point. 

I will be keeping a weekly journal to keep me accountable and keep you updated!

Happy New Year!
