Happy 2017, everyone! There is something about an empty planner that makes me feel electric. All those blank pages begging to be filled with memories and completed tasks. A blank notebook is a fresh start.
I have to admit, 2016 wasn’t a stellar year for me. It wasn’t a bad year, just a stagnant one.
I didn’t make very much forward progress on my goals. In a lot of ways, I was content to just be. And you know what? After the stress of newborn triplets and a time-consuming MBA program, maybe what I really needed was time to just be.
In 2017, I’m ready to hit the ground running.
I can’t do everything, so I’ve decided to focus on just three areas: family, career, and personal passion. Simple.
For my family goals, I am focusing on intentionality and being present. As far as my career goes, 2017 is the year I am going to start my own dental practice; I’m incredibly excited!
My personal passion is, and always has been, the written word. Reading and writing are my life’s breath. The things that fill me up and make me come alive.
I read a ton this past year. I hit my personal goal of reading 52 books and it made me feel so good. While I managed to cultivate a reading life, I neglected writing. And I’d like that to change in 2017.
That’s where you come in. I’d like to write things that make you happy. I have a few posts lined up for 2017, including tips for brushing a toddler’s teeth, organizing your kids’ belongings, and a big request for more on what it feels like to raise triplets.
If there’s anything that you’d like me to cover specifically, please shoot me a message or comment below. I would be so grateful for your input. I need your help to make 2017 the best writing year of my life.
Wishing you all the best for the year ahead!
