No New Year Resolutions Just New Year Intentions

It’s been a long while since I’ve actually done and followed through a New Year Resolution. I guess even thinking about what I should do is just too much work. Maybe because a resolution is focused on a problem or an issue that needs to be fixed. I think it is much better to direct our attention to how we picture the coming year.What good things do you see happening? What kind of experiences would you like to have? How do you intend to grow and learn as a mother? a wife? a business owner? as a person? What can you do to connect with people and help your community? How can you be more spiritual?
These are some questions that I’d be reflecting on as the new year approaches. For one, I’d like to have more experiences and fewer things.It’s not that I won’t buy new stuff but I have to be sure that it us something that will be useful for a long time and will have room in our home.Because currently, we have things that need their own spot in our home.
 I also hope to travel to new and interesting places with my family. I believe traveling affords us exciting ways to widen our horizon and deepen our understanding of people,cultures and the world we live in.
I want to keep learning as a mom, a crocheter ,a writer and a health care professional. Everyday, I hope to make progress even small ones to improve my skills in these areas. 
How about you, what are your intentions for 2016? May tomorrow morning and the year ahead, be a fresh and good one for all of us.
This year, I’m most grateful for the opportunity to be a mom.Having a healthy daughter is such a blessing! I am also thankful for the interesting people and experiences that have come my way.It has been a truly wonderful year! I hope and pray that the coming year will bring more blessings, more avenues to grow and more ways to make a difference. 
Happy New Year everybody! Let’s all keep counting our blessings!♥
