2018 was great, 2018 was full, 2018 was busy, 2018 is almost over …
I see a lot of people make resolutions for the new year. I see people pick a word that they use to navigate the new year. I am bad at both. I tried the resolution thing and it never worked. I tried to “thrive” in 2018 and even though I have in many ways I did not meet my expectations. I feel that “awaken” fits my 2018 better.
I decided not to do that next year.
So here it goes…
For 2019 I want:
I want to meet more extraordinaire women who raised amazing sons who are now amazing men
I want to meet more dads who raised strong women. More dads who cry because their baby girl has grown and they are now welcoming a son into the family
More long life girlfriends who had sleepovers, help, held and raise each other up
More ‘sisters’ that share inside jokes and sing their wedding speech
More friends who act like brothers
More friends who drop their pants at a park in the middle of the day because they are proud of their area code tattoos
More friends who tattoo your name on their leg and are proud of it 🙂
More men that are madly in love with their bride. So in love that they would bring the moon to them
I want to see more brides look at themselves in the mirror and are amazed at the women they have become.
I want to see more brides enjoy the day they dreamed of for years
I want to see more new moms fall in love and hold their heart in their arms for the first time
I want to see more first time parents adore their children
I want to see more families year after year and catch up on life 🙂
And of course I want more days at the beach with my babe
More days at the farm for pony rides
I want to show my daughter the world and take pictures of her more often ( with a camera not iphone 🙂 )
I want to see my grandparents and hear more of their stories
I want to spend more time with my family.
I want 2019 to be full of happy couples and happy families including my own.
Have a great 2019!
