I don’t know about you, but personally, I am happy that 2012 is behind me. Every year has its ups and downs, but I feel that 2012 was particularly hairy, and I am celebrating every time I write 2013 on a check or document this week. (I may be the only person who still actually writes checks.)
I’m not one for a New Year’s resolution, but this time of year does start me thinking about how to improve life, health, relationships, diet, etc. At Bottle Snugglers, we are going through a lot of changes this month and this year. This little baby bottle holder, which has been the center of my universe for four years, has taken me on quite a journey. I am so thankful for my customers’ and friends’ support! Good things are ahead here for sure. More on that in a few weeks.
So, how are we (yes, you are included here) going to make 2013 a great year? I have a few ideas for myself, which I am going to keep rather vague and unmeasurable to stay out of the “resolution” category. I like consider them goals instead.
1. Think less about baby shower gifts. :)
2. Sleep more.
3. Be more involved in the “world” (read: actually leave my desk and see humans)
4. Aim for three days a week minimum of some fun physical activity. Less punishment, more fun outdoors.
5. Appreciate myself, and celebrate my achievements, even if I don’t achieve all of these goals.
We are busy. We are sometimes overcommitted. We are tired. We need a third hand to help feed our baby while we assist our toddler in reading a book and our kindergartner in making a snack. But Moms get it all done somehow, and that is what I think we should all focus on in 2013. Celebrating ourselves and our every day accomplishments. Do you agree?
Happy 2013! You have made my last 4 New Years celebrations very memorable.
