Happy New Year! I mean, its mid February but ya girl has been on struggle street so I’m just starting my year.
Last year was hectic, like there was just so much going on. I had so many goals & my vision board was packed with things. I was proud of myself at the end of last year but I was also tired. . . So so tired. I accomplished many of my goals but also felt like a whole year went by & I was not even there for it.
Busy-ness, that should be my middle name. I have always been the “busy body” for as long as I can remember. So I told myself 2019 would be all about living for the right now. My word(s) for 2019 is “Be Still” & God made sure I would do just that.
Early December Nathaniel & I found out we are pregnant with baby #4 because I was SO SICK. I spent the first 12 weeks of my pregnancy throwing up & out of commission. Almost as if God knew I was going to be dipping into the busy pot & wanted to forced me to meet my goal. Being sick & only being capable of living in each moment really helped me to jumpstart this year of stillness.
So here I am, taking everything slow. Living each day fully present without constantly trying to work on my future. I must say, it feels good. I am breathing in my boys & this pregnancy with no distractions. I can sit in my husband’ s office & write a blog while we chat with no homework assignments due. I am just here, right now, being still, & loving every single thing about it.
What is your goal for this year? Whatever it is, I will be praying you through it. I mean, I have so much time on my hands to do so.
