Resolutions & Growth + A GIVEAWAY!

A special thanks to PinkBlush for sponsoring today's Giveaway and sparking today's conversation!
Happy New Year! 
Have you made your New Years Resolutions yet?

I'll be honest, I'm not a huge fan of that term, but I do love setting goals for myself and being able to gauge my growth and progress. I strongly believe that setting goals is about designing a life that you love. You create the life that you are willing to work for (and the same can be said about motherhood)! 

PS. Don't forget to scroll down to enter the fabulous PinkBlush Giveaway!

At the beginning of every year I like to find a quiet moment to gather my thoughts, hone in my desires for myself, my family and the year ahead. They revolve around all the important areas of my life (marriage, motherhood, spiritual, health, intellectual, and financial). 

This year I'm also incorporating some simple daily achievable goals for myself. For example, I wont set a goal like "make my children happier". Instead, I'll set a few goals around spending quality one-on-one time with each of my girls and taking them to do something special each day of the week. While many of my goals are things I can check off everyday (or every week), there are some bigger ones I will be working towards monthly (like service projects and marathon training). I strongly believe that a slight change in direction today, can lead to a very different final destination, don't you agree? 
Have you ever picked a “Word of the Year” before? This is my first year and I'm kind of excited about it! I think 2017 will be a great year and one of self improvement and change. So, do you want to know my word of the year:)? It's: Tenacious, meaning: to not readily relinquish a position, principle, or course of action; determined/steadfast. I just love this, because I can apply it for my goals with my family, my personal growth, relationships, and my blog. Plus, it will serve as a reminder to sacrifice what I want now for what I want most. 
Do you set goals in categories?
What goals are you looking forward to reaching in 2017?
