Happy New Year everyone!! A new year is FULL of opportunities, goals and new beginnings! I am tremendously excited this year because every year, I am asked, what are my new years resolutions, and every year, I just don’t have one!!😂 Well this year I have a few!! Some may seem trivial, but they are all important to me nonetheless! So here are the more tangible resolutions I’ve conjured up:
Open a joint bank account
As silly as this may sound, as long as we’ve been married, (almost 4 yrs) we’ve only had MY bank account that I’ve had since I was 17 yrs old. It would be super annoying whenever we came across situations only I could deal with because his name wasn’t on the account. Well even that one has been closed for a while , and although it’s been fun living off the grid, we’re ready to get back to adulthood now! Lol
Get Doula certification
I’ve had the love and passion for all things pregnancy and birth, since I got pregnant with Aria! I am constantly reading and studying on my own as much as I can! I even was my very best friend’s doula at her VBAC home birth! Which was enough to make me want to BURST!!!! I decided on the program that best fit my needs right now, allowing me to do it online (mostly) and at my own pace around my own schedule. So my goal is to be certified by the end of the year.
Start homeschool with Aria
Oy vey! This is a daunting one! LOL It is just the most important one to me, and holds A LOT of responsibility and structure! I am elated to be able to teach my own child, incorporating the parts of life that I deem most valuable. The struggle will lie in my own confidence. As a mother, you ALWAYS want what’s best for your child. Daily, I will probably ask myself can I really do this?? Am I qualified? Is this the best education for her? Will she end up that awkward unsocialized homeschooled stereotype? Etc. That is the devil creeping in, creating self doubt. My goal is to stay focused on God, allowing Him to guide me through this journey even when it is not so easy.
Have 2 working vehicles
Sharing a vehicle AWFUL!!! You know what’s even worse??…when that one vehicle is in the shop and you have NO VEHICLES!😒😒 well this years resolution is to fix our current vehicle and get another one. For obvious reasons. mostly staying in the house with 2 kids is enough to drive you absolutely BONKERS!😱😱
I pray that I can obtain these resolutions without ceasing, that when I feel the devil creating self doubt, that I don’t let it conquer me and that in those moments of defeat, (let them only be moments) I have the courage to call onto God and ask for help. I pray this in your holy name Jesus. Amen.
I would LOVE to hear some of your resolutions this year!! Can I help pray with you? Encourage you? Please share them in the comments!
