FOCUS. This is my word for 2018. As I sit down to write this post, I realize January is already passing by quickly. 2018 is off to fiery start and I feel myself feeling like I am drowning in my to-do list and all the things I want to accomplish. I wrote this post earlier this year talking about keeping focus. After re-reading the post, it inspired me to chose focus as my intention for 2018. It’s so easy to get distracted with everything going on in life and to spread yourself thin trying to do it all. Focus on the task I am on or the moment that is happening. I plan on working to minimize my distractions and allow myself to be fully present this year. This is going to require me to put my phone down much more. People can say what they want about social media but it has brought so much positivity in my life. I have made real life friends, felt connected on days I only talk to a toddler and been inspired to continue living my best life from these tiny squares of Instagram. However, this year I’m focusing on my family more and hoping to put my phone away a little more.
Even with focus as an intention for 2018, I did want to list out a few goals I have for myself. My list of goals is extremely long but I am focusing on a select list this year.
- Obtain another Pilates certification – I obtained my Level One certification with Peak Pilates in 2015. Currently, I teach one group reformer class weekly and a few private reformer sessions out of my house. Pilates truly changed my life and I hope to keep learning more. I invested quite a bit of money into my training and learned so much but not sure I want to continue with Peak Pilates.
- Try one new recipe each week – Meal planning is one of my least favorite tasks. We eat at home almost every night so this task I don’t love ends up taking up a lot of my time. Amazon Fresh pick-up and delivery has been a life savor for me. I am able to order and pickup groceries without ever leaving my house or getting out of the car.
- Grow my social media presence on Facebook and Pinterest – I spend most of my time on Instagram but want to grow my numbers on Facebook and Pinterest. At the end of the day, I really hope to inspire other moms to live a healthy and adventurous lifestyle. Connecting with my followers is the reason I getting putting work into my blog and social media presence.
- BE PRESENT – This goal isn’t exactly measurable but I’m putting it on the list. I want to look back 5 years from now and remember how great these days were with my boys! Living in the moment is important to me this year.
I also wanted to share my happy space at home. This is my office and home Pilates studio. During nap times and late at night, I escape to this place while also teaching a few privates each week. I recently added a diffuser to the space from Saje Wellness. I’m a little late to the world of diffusing essential oils but they really are a life changer. This diffuser is going when I’m working out or trying to get some computer work done in this space.
