I typically do not make New Year’s Resolutions. I believe that if something needs to change, start, or end, why wait? There is no time like the present! This year I do have a resolution though. I would like to take a little time for me each day to journal and preserve my and my family’s precious day-to-day memories which frequently get lost in everyday busy-ness. My three boys are 7, 4, and 1 and already I sometimes struggle to remember which child did what. My mom always tells me the little moments you though you would never forget are the ones you can’t quite remember clearly. I didn’t wholly believe her at first, but I do now!
I actually started to do this in October when I participated in a 31-day photo challenge called “Capture Your Grief” in honor of Miscarriage & Infant Loss Awareness month and my precious Auriel. The project felt so good to complete I continued with a Thankfulness challenge for November, and then a December challenge based on Christmas music. Around mid-December I got caught up in a whirlwind of my baby’s first birthday, church Christmas programs, and holiday travel, and the project was abandoned. So I suppose this isn’t a New Year’s Resolution, but rather a RE-resolution that happens to coincide with the New Year.
For January I will be using an Instagram Challenge from Fat Mum Slim
I hope you enjoy following me and my family on our journey through 2013!
