27 came with so many new experiences (leaving work, becoming a mom, all kinds of discovery, and more) WHAT A YEAR. Today I turn 28 and thought I would share a little more about who I am through this post with hopes I have for year 29...
I have not thoroughly planned this post so I'm just going to write from my heart and mind with the time I have left while my daughter takes her nap!
This year I hope...
To grow simultaneously in my roles as wife, mom, daughter, and friend
To get out on more dates with just my husband
To experience a new culture in a country I've never been to before
To grow my skills in my hobbies without putting too much pressure on myself to find the time
To do something every day that is beneficial for my physical and mental health
To express myself freely through words without the concern of others' opinions
To fear less
To break a sweat more than I did last year
To learn how to surrender more and control less
To read and study one third of the Bible
To drink more water
To love my daughter and watch her grow
To reflect more (journaling, photos, scrapbooking)
To spend less time scrolling
To be completely debt free
To READ (not just listen to) more books than I did last year
To stretch often
To keep this blog running (ha!)
To spend time visiting with family and friends (our fam lives in other places)
To strengthen my existing relationships
To explore the area of California I live in
To spend many days at the beach with my fam
To open an online shop with things I make
To teach others something I know
To eat more salads (or incorporate more leafy things in general)
To share the Gospel
To make more family videos (and not just have 5,000 10 second videos saved on my phone)
If you made it this far, thank you for reading along! I hope throughout the year I can look at this post for reminders of where I want to go and more importantly, how I want to spend my time.
