GOODBYE 2016, HELLO 2017

by - 12/31/2016

Post-Christmas depression. Is there any wonder why people spend more money to make themselves feel better once the twenty-sixth rolls around? All those sales. All those returns. I used to work retail, so I know it's a personal hell for those working. God speed customer service desk workers.

I'm stuck in that feeling of still having my decorations up and waiting for the new year and not wanting to take it down and definitely not wanting to get back into the routine of going back to work. I don't have the luxury of having almost two weeks off like those in school do. I miss those days, don't you? Sure, we have the freedom of being able to make adult decisions, but how free are we really when we're chained to our work place?

Ah well, I'm just blathering on in my post-Christmas sadness. A lot of good things happened this year, along with some bad, but I'd like not to focus on that and rather improve on what I'd like to accomplish. A new year is like a new slate. And while I feel like new year resolutions don't tend to stick very well, I'm going to try really hard to make a go of it this year. So here it is, some easy and some difficult new year resolutions, along with everything that I loved in 2016.

2016 Accomplishments; no matter how small!
♥moved out of hell house and into our stress-free home!
♥read and wrote a ton more. so proud of this one!
♥learned how to really calm myself when anxiety peaks.
♥got married!
♥got a raise at work!
♥started to really dig into my brain.

2017 Resolutions; a task list for the year.
♥whoops, get that car fixed! body work, new rear windshield wiper, rear brakes. yikes.
♥get healthier! work out and meal plans.
♥save more money for an amazing vacation!
♥worry less, plan more.
♥develop and stick to a routine.

And that's really all there is to my year. I want it to be a year where I don't have to worry and stress so much. Unfortunately, in this day and age, that means you need more money. I've always tried to save, as I'm sure we all have, but this is the year I'm really going to put a dent in it! It's a lot of everyday, adult things that I want to get accomplished, but it will make my life, and my husband's life, all the easier. And that is something that we could definitely use after the year we've had. So now I leave you with some images of my magical Christmas room, so I can remember it forever, and with this;

How are you going to make 2017 the best year ever?
