    I really love to reflect back + look forward when one year ends and another begins. It brings perspective and helps me grow. Every year, I really enjoy writing out one sentence prompts of things I want to strive towards. 

    Here's what I said for 2018:

    Do the next right thing

    It's one of those coined phrases but on days where I feel overwhelmed, it really helps to say this to myself. Just do the next right thing. One step at a time towards days filled with doing the right thing. Maybe it's laundry instead of instagram, maybe it's a nap instead of laundry. 

    Try Staying Organized

    As a flighty, right-brained creative, I drive the struggle bus on this one. But I'm gonna keep on trying. Give me  all the lists and calendars.

    Enjoy holding my babies at bedtime

    I caught myself rushing through bedtime a lot last year. Just ready for some free time. I want to savor their littleness and hold them a little longer and little tighter. 

    Create community around me

    Invite more people over. Fill my table more often. Be intentional. 

    Go somewhere new

    For our 10 year anniversary hopefully!

    Give my time more generously

    This may not be my season to be a big financial giver but that doesn't mean I can't be generous. I want to see and meet needs by being generous with my time.

    Start praying, stop worrying

    Meaning stop worrying in it's tracks by praying. 

    Be present and engaged

    Stick to my office hours and really enjoy my people when I'm not working.

    Accept my season

    And flourish and grow where I am. In motherhood, in marriage, in friendships, in location.

    Spend my time wisely

    The overall underlying theme for me.

    And my word to focus on this year is: Joy

    Choose it. Be it. Spread it.
