I hope to focus on being kind and patient with myself as I learn to be a mother and make sure to make time for myself and A’s and I relationship as well as well as learning to put this babes needs first. I am sure that balancing act will be tough.
I'm planning to prioritize my love life, now that my career is on a good trajectory. I'm also going to try to get better at eating more vegetables (a salad with my lunch each day, carrots to snack on, etc) and more fruit. I'm also going to try to adjust to my new salary, make some tweaks to my budget, and start saving up. I'm hoping to save up for a trip or two and for a living room makeover. I want to get a new armchair, a small couch or loveseat, and a new rug.

I have a bunch:
1) Be more consistent with my health and fitness. I'd also like to do 2 half marathons this year and would love to get a PR. 2) More experiences, less stuff. I'd like to prioritize taking classes, traveling, books and good meals over buying more clothes or stuff I don't really need. 3) Stop saving stuff. I'm awful about "saving" that nice bottle of wine until there is a special occasion. 4) I'd also like to put myself out there more. I made a few new friends in 2019, which I was really happy about. I'd like to continue that trend in 2020.
I don't do goals or resolutions, per se although you could spin what I do into a goal. I pick a word to focus on throughout the year. I generally just keep the word top of mind to influence decisions I make/actions I take in all aspects of life. My word this year is "consistency".
Last year was "peace" and the year before was "gratitude". I will say that when you keep a word top of mind for a full year it becomes something that influences you in a natural way going forward. So for example, I find gratitude in all kinds of ways without even thinking about it now even though it isn't my word anymore.
I am also a word/intention picker. I wanted to focus on something to do with learning (because my new job is completely different from what I've done before and I have a lot to dig in and figure out), but the word that keeps echoing around my brain is actually Joy, so that's what I'm going with!
I'm also doing more of a word/intention. I'm choosing "joy" for the 2nd year. I definitely want to travel more (I'll be in Taiwan in 3 weeks), I want to find more joy in the day to day stuff (sing more, dance more, laugh more), be better about spending time with my friends (getting stuff on the calendar!) and go into this year's tough mudder with more strength.
I don't really set a goal, but do try to set intentions for the year. 1. be better about my health/fitness. I am such a happier human when I do yoga and am more active. 2. be kinder to myself and others.

I am not great with goals - I am the worst at following through with them over months. I feel bad about that. But I started a new journal last week, and I'd like to keep up with that and write in it about 3-4 times per week.
