I feel like this year is the first year I’ve been truly inspired and refreshed by the turning of the calendar. Our house has been a wreck for weeks. Our house is small and the work on the kitchen floors meant a constant mess we had to live in. dust, tools, appliances in the dining room. We decorated for holidays and I think that this year we probably shouldn’t have. Our home was constantly in flux, a temporary state of chaos that stretched into eternity. With the move-in and out of decor it added a lot to our stress list. But save for a few finishing touches our floor is done, holiday decor is stored for another year and we have finally stabilized. Whew! As much as I love the holidays, I have never been more happy to be back to normal life.
With the new year we’ve taken the chance to sit down, evaluate and make some changes.
- We decided to go vegan again, at least for a few months. When we were on a vegan diet, we ate more at home, were more inspired to cook and didn’t have to think too hard about what was ‘good’ and what was ‘bad’. I’m excited to feel the energy, loose the pounds and lethargy.
- Second, we have been lucky that we’ve been able to pay for Billy’s flight education out of pocket thus far. But we never budgeted for it and just made it work; we’ve restructured our budget to add in an official aviation education line, I feel so much more confidant in the future now that there’s a plan and goal in mind.
What changes are you making for the new year?
