2016 Resolutions and Goals

Hey girls!!! I'm going to share a few of the things that I'm "working on" this year! I'm hoping that in December I'll look back and report that I made progress in all of these areas...
I dwell on things. I don't like that I do it, but it's apart of me.
Not on my decisions...I usually think those through.
But...if someone says something that hurts my feelings...I dwell on it.
If I hear something that's not true about me or my family...I dwell on it.
If I have a bad day...I dwell on it.
If I don't do well at school...I dwell on it.
If I think I may have disappointed someone...I dwell on it.
If someone is mad at me...I dwell on it.
So, my biggest goal for this year is to LET IT GO! I'm choosing not to dwell on circumstances or situations. I want to focus more on my family and put my energy into positive things!
 Maybe not right at this moment since it's freezing outside, but this summer especially, I want to make more of an effort to get outside with Colson. He loves going to the park, bike rides, and going for walks. I want to take the time to be outside with his happy place!
I'm also really hoping that swimming lessons is a success this year! I want to find a way for him to get excited about it and enjoy it without being so afraid!
I think I do a fairly good job with cooking, however, I need to plan better. I want to be more prepared when it comes to cooking and cook healthier meals!

 This is easier said than done, but I want to have my weekends and evenings to spend with my family. I want to make more of an effort to finish all my school work during the week while Colson is at daycare or napping. My time with my family is so valuable and limited so I want to make the most of our time together!
Be present, encouraging, and loving! Greet him at the door when he gets home from working so hard for us. Be affectionate and show him how much I love him, not just saying it. Do things for him that show him I care about him and appreciate him.

I want to attend church regularly and complete my Jesus Calling devotional.
Here are a few pins on from Pinterest that are also encouraging me in 2016...

Here's to a great 2016!
