Welcoming 2018

The Last two years we have chosen one word to represent our goals for the year (so far it’s been FORWARD and CHANGE) and this year we decided to do the same thing.    If you are the kind of person who sets a bunch of goals in January and has given up by June than you might want to give this method a try.  Having just one word makes it easy to remember and allows us to refocus as much as we need to depending on the circumstances.

2017 brought many new adventures, and we certainly had to change and adapt a lot.  Now that some of the newness in our lives has settled, we’ve decided that this years word will be…

Balance in 2018


Balance.  Last year was a year full of new and exciting things.  New and exciting things that required lots of work and lots of our time.  In 2018 it’s time for us to balance things out a bit.  We are setting some simple goals to help us be more aware of our time but overall will be focusing on establishing a good routine, pushing self-care, and looking for the good and positive in our lives.

Balance in 2018


It’s time for us to start creating some balance.  Time for family, friends, and taking care of ourselves.  Establishing routines will certainly help as well saying No from time to time. Easier said than done, I know but we’ve got to try.  How do you create balance? I’d love to hear your tips and tricks.

Do you set goals or choose a word for each new year? I’d love to hear what you have planned.
