Birthday Goals - My "New Year" Aspirations









   Most people think of a new year on January 1st, make resolutions and feel a fresh start to the year.  For whatever reason, I've always felt my birthday was the beginning of my new year.  Maybe it's because it's in the spring and the weather starts to change, flowers start to bud and everything just seems to have more color in April.
   It's also a start to another year of being alive and it truly makes me reflect on all the blessings, the struggles, and the goals that I have accomplished so far.

A few of my "new year" goals for myself:

  • Have less.  I want to simplify my home and my life.  I need a really good spring cleaning.  I'd like to minimize my closet, minimize Gavin's toys, and downsize home items.
  • Be more grateful. It's so easy to get caught up in "I wish I had more," or "I wish I was further along with my career goals," and I feel like sometime I need to stop and just be grateful for what I have, where I have come and where I am going. Finding gratitude daily is something I want to do be more consistent with. 
  • Get Outside More. I've never been a "gym" person but always grew up playing outdoor sports and being super active.  I want to step up my game this spring and summer and do more outdoor activities with Gavin such as hiking, sightseeing, swimming, and just enjoying nature. 


 Thank you all for such amazing birthday wishes! Do you have any birthday goals this year?

Ever After,
Jamie
