Looking Forward to 2017
First off, let me apologize for my recent hiatus! Although, I am really looking forward to what 2017 has in store, it had a rocky start… Amare was sick with a stomach bug, which then got passed on to me and I am only now starting to feel like my regular self again.
Some exciting things have been happening as well though. I got hired on permanently by the company that I have been working at for the past 7 months (I was first hired on as a contract worker). This is exciting because not only does it mean job security, but also now I am on a salary and have benefits that cover myself and my family (which I have learnt when you have a child, is a HUGE must!) My man also started a new job this month, which he really likes, so I am glad we are both starting the year off happy in that department.
We are also planning on going on our first trip. We have always talked about taking a trip, but things always “came up” and we never got around to it. But, for my man’s 30th birthday I told him I really wanted to take him away somewhere to relax on a beach and get away…so although his birthday was in December, we are planning to go sometime in April. Any suggestions on where to go?
Other than that … I have a few goals/resolutions for myself for 2017.
Mainly, I want to get back on the right track with my fitness goals. The past few months, I fell off a bit and with the holidays recently passing, that didn’t help either. I am motivated though that I can get back to where I was and continue to improve.
I also want to spend more time with my family. Life can get so busy that sometimes a couple months go by without seeing them. I recently took Amare to my Mum’s for a sleepover and we had such a good time! My Mum and I get to have late night talks (we were up till 3am chatting!), which I love… the bond and relationship I have with my Mum now, I feel is stronger than ever and I always feel so happy after spending some time with them. =)
I want to continue to work hard at developing my career and enjoy life to the fullest! Everyday, I am amazed at how quick Amare is growing and learning so I really want to focus on enjoying all the little moments and making 2017 the best year yet!
Stay tuned for some new posts coming soon! =)
