making 2014 count!

Gosh, it sure has been a while since I've blogged!  Being a wife and full-time working mommy takes up most of my time, but it is important that I squeeze what few minutes I have left over each day into taking care of myself.
 
So, in 2014, I will do just that.  I will make this year count by spending more time working on myself.  So that I become a better Christian, a better wife, a better mom, a better ME.  I have always made new year's resolutions that I never stick to.  I'm always like, "I'm going to lose 30 pounds," or "I want to redecorate my entire house for the summer," when in reality, these things are not obtainable if you do not stick to them.  If I start a 'diet' and then fail at it, I write it off FOR THE YEAR.  That is just the way my mind thinks.  I have a really hard time with setting goals, failing at them, and then starting over.  I know, it's kind of weird. 
 
But, I digress.
 
I figure that setting an achievement for myself that I can work at over time and not stress about will make me a lot happier in the end.  This way, I'm not obsessed with a number the scale gives me, or how 'Pinterest' my house looks. 
 
Of course, I do not anticipate achieving this goal without the help of the Lord.  I want to become the wife and mother that He wants me to be!  I need to stop worrying less about what others think of me, and to start focusing more on my faith and what the bible teaches.  I believe that the only way for me to start taking care of myself is to rely on Him in every situation.  I feel like I often forget to do this throughout my busy workdays and jam packed weekends.  I need to just take time out of the day to acknowledge Him.  To pray.  To give thanks.
 
In the end, I feel like becoming a better Christian is the answer to everything.  I can become a more loving wife, a better example for my baby, and a more enjoyable person to be around (let's face it, we can all be a little cranky sometimes!).  If I set this goal for myself, with the Lord's help, I have no doubt in my mind that I can achieve it.
 
Here's to 2014!
