Happy New Year Glams!
I still can’t believe that we powered our way through 2018 and are already into the second day of 2019! As a mommy who has spent at least 20 years writing out her New Year resolutions, I’ve personally gotten to a point in my life where I don’t necessarily wait until the New Year to make changes. If there’s something within my “personal house” that needs to change, I make a decision, devise a plan and try my darnedest to change it!
So, instead of devising New Year resolutions I choose to instead reflect on what was in the prior year and draft a plan focused around an area of my life that I would like to either completely change or rearrange for the better.
With this tidbit of intel in mind, my 2019 is all about GETTING BACK TO MICHELLE.
Let me explain: It’s not about forgetting about family and friends or neglecting those areas of my current life that are bringing me joy. And trust me, don’t think for a minute that I’ve been living a life that was totally consumed by the wants and needs of others, trust me, that’s not your girl. What it does mean is that I am personally committing to ensuring that everything that I do, every move that I make is completely aligned with ME and where I’m ultimately trying to go. It’s more about making sure that I don’t forget about me, the Pre-Mommy Michelle, the Before She Was Married Michelle, the Michelle before she secured the “Corporate Bag Michelle.” Sound a bit selfish? Yes, it may, but that’s the beauty of where my head is going into this New Year.
So, you’re probably asking, how is BlackGlamourMom “Getting Back To Her” in the New Year? Let me share 4 of the ways that I’m planning on getting back to me:
Constantly Ensuring That Everything That I do Lines Up With What Michelle Wants
As a Corporate Career Mom, it’s easy to get wrapped up in the 9 to 5 and hustle + bustle of the corporate world. At times, the LIFE can take over your own personal world. In 2019, I’m going to take better care to ensure that everything that I do aligns with my wants and needs, while also continuing to protect my time with my family.
I’ve Secured The “Corporate Bag,” Now I Have To Get To My Entrepreneurial Bag.
Pretty Simple. I’m making sure that I knock out those ideas on my list that I’m most passionate about, while I continue to passionately kick A** in my marketing career.
Positive Vibes Only Please
I’m a big believer in positive energy and I’m making sure that what comes in my space is as positive as possible. No Negative Energy around here please.
Self Care Is The Only Way That I Am Going to Continue to Rock It Out As a Wife + Mommy
Monthly Spa Days, Weekend Getaways, Lazy Sunday’s—They are all mine for the constant taking this New Year!
You’re Shining, But You Can Go Harder
Most people will tell you that I’m one of THE most humble people that you will ever meet. With that said, I know I’m winning, but I also know what I’ve got in me and that means that I can and will GO HARDER.
So Glams, what’s your theme for 2019? What are you getting away from or getting to? I want to hear from you in the comments section.
Happy New Year and Chat Soon,
