2014 was a whole year of waiting, and you know what?
I freaking hate waiting.
Waiting to close on our new home, waiting for a positive pregnancy test (still waiting!), waiting to quit my job, waiting, waiting, waiting. I know it’s a part of life, but damn I want to cut in line so bad sometimes! So this year I’m not making any serious new years resolutions. I’m not trying to quit anything or eat better, or drink more water, or exercise more. I’m not promising to put my phone down or watch less tv or save more money. I’m not going to make promises to myself that I know I may not be able to keep, because well, I’m just not good with resolutions okay?
Instead, I’m simply going to live in the moment much more than I have been. I’m going to spend more time doing the things I want to do – the things that make me happy. I’m going to wear more lipstick, put my thoughts onto paper as soon as they come to me, play with my son, cook with my husband, learn to use my sewing machine, watch more movies, go.outside.and.breathe.it.all.in. That’s what 2015 is going to be to me. We finally have our new home, I’ve quit my job for something less stressful, and I’m working on accepting the wait I’ve encountered on the whole giving Wesley a sibling thing. All in good time, friends, all in good time. In fact, if you’re on the same baby fever level as me (we’re talking stage 5 period stalking people), let’s support each other and do this together because o/m/g is it hard.
I’ve deemed this year the #yearofraechel, and to me that means it’s my year and I’m going to take advantage of every single second of it that I am given. No waiting here, guys. Well okay, maybe some. 😉
Cheers to a new year! xo
