2018 - a year of intentional living

2018 intentions goals
Happy 2018! I don't know about you all but I am thankful for a fresh start! This year I've decided to ditch those resolutions and instead focus on a word or theme for the year. 

For me, 2017 was a year of becoming mom - a whirlwind of diapers, laundry, dealing with mom guilt and postpartum anxiety, learning how to balance motherhood with my career and relationships.  I learned alot my first year of motherhood (you can read about those lessons here), but one of the most important things I learned was to SLOW DOWN.

So for 2018, this year my word/theme is intentional - being purposeful and living by one's values and beliefs.

So here are my 2018 intentions:

1.) Spend more time on loved ones and experiences. - Focusing more on having meaningful and intentional interactions with my loved ones and making memorable experiences.

2.) Do one thing for myself each day and practice self care. - Whether it be a a walk to feel the sunshine on my face or curling up with a blanket and enjoying a cup of coffee, I'm going to allow myself 30 minutes each day for self-reflection and me time.

3.) Nourish and be kind to my mind and body -Being mindful of things I put into my body, being forgiving to myself, knowing my worth and allowing my mind time to rest.

4.) Focus on the positive - and let go of anything negative or that brings me down.

What is your word/theme or some of your intentions for 2018?

Wishing you all a happy, healthy, intentional year!

  1. These are great ways to have a good year. I too need to practice these more. I tend to not take time for myself, and it makes me too stressed, overwhelmed, and impatient.

  2. I love that your word is intentional. Living purposefully is something I want to work on.

  3. I really love this - happy new year, Mama!

  4. I love your intentions! I hope I can stick with some great intentions this year as well :)
