2013 was a hard year.
2013 was probably the hardest year of my life.
I intend to make 2014 a better year.
There are many things I want to do in 2014. I probably wont share them all here. I feel like the more you share, the more likely you are to fail at it. You put too much pressure on things and they break.
I intend to be present over perfect. I get lost in the details of things and I don't enjoy them as much. I stress more about creating the life I want than living the one I have. This needs to change.
I want to be a better mother and girlfriend. I used to be a good mom/girlfriend. Somewhere along the line things got hard and I kind of gave up. I expect more out of people than I expect from myself and that needs to change.
I want to take more time for myself. I want to get back into writing (thus the reason for this blog). I want to do more art projects. I want to scrapbook. I want to paint. I want to go for walks. I want to pin more things and actually do them.
I want to find a home for my family. David, the girls, and I have been living with David's parents since September. There were a lot of things that led us to the decision to live here for the time being.This has been one of the more challenging things we have gone through. I am hopeful that we will find a place that is perfect for us (somewhere that feels more like a home and less like a house) and we will find it under the right conditions.
Well, here goes...
