New Years Resolutions

Happy Last Day of 2012!

I’m one of those people..It’s true. I make the lists. The resolutions. The goals. Yup. I do, and I love every minute of it.

I thought I’d share some of my personal goals with you today, and maybe later on this afternoon if I can get the post together I’ll share my “homey” goals as well.

1.) Breath, and Just Live. I have a horrible tendency of letting my struggles become who I am. They aren’t. The fight inside, the perseverance,  the bright side. That’s who I need to focus on being. I can’t go back in time and do this, that, this or such and such and make the outcome better. The outcome is exactly how I wanted, why dwell on what I could have done to make it better. I have my family, my home and my health. I’m exactly where I’m supposed to be, right now. So knock it off, Rachelle.


2.) I miss staying at home with my children. There, I said it. I miss feeling like my home is clean, and making dinner and having TIME to blog..and create. I go to work when it’s dark out and I come home when it’s dark out. It’s making me a sad person. I know financially we can’t afford for me to stay home because it was a large trade off having Jared in town vs. me being at home all day. But gosh, it’s a goal. We have ideas, and we want to make it happen. Because you know, you only get one life.. and some how..some way, I’ll see my babies more.


3.) Let go, live a little. Stop stressing the small things. So the kids spilled something, or I lost one of my favorite $3.00 target special earrings. Life will go on. No need to stay up at night worrying about silly little inconveniences (However, I still do stay up at night missing my 1st wedding band set the girls played with secretly..and lost.. Sigh.. but it’s just a ring.. say it with me, it’s just a ring)  But, when the girls are acting act when we’re at home depot. I want to just smile and keep on, movin on. Because really, they’re dancing in the store. Who said you had to walk anyways? Everyone should break down and dance once and a while. Key to happiness people!


Besides those super cheesy, weepy ones.. :) I also would love to generally just be a happier version of me. Sometimes life really just gets me down and why? There’s so much beauty in just being able to wake up every day! Positive living, I’m working on it.

I also want to eat as clean, and healthy as I can. My body is definitely telling me things lately and I’m trying to listen. The other day, I was craving Brussels Sprouts like a crazy person. Why? I’ve NEVER had them in my life. But I couldn’t think about anything else. So off to the store I went. My body wants greens, it’s getting greens– ha!

And, no. I’m not pregnant.

But, can that be my N.Y.Resolution too? ;)

So tell me yours!

    I really like all of yours. :) And I need to do those things to – enjoy life more, stress less. I think I have this little bit of perfection in me (even though I’m the most unperfect person in like every way lol) and i get nuts-o when things (and my kids!) are out of wack and it causes me to miss out on the everyday joys, ya know? Happy New Year to ya girl! XO

    To somehow make my husband want me again. No matter what it takes. Diet, exercise, growing my hair out long-even though I reallllly want it short-I just want him to look at me the same way he did when we met. I don’t know where I went wrong, but I swear in 2013, I will make him love me again.

    I hear you with the second one. My husband got laid off 6 months ago so I’m working more. I hate it. I miss being there with my son. I posted a few on my blog but then thought of a million more. one major one is to just be me and stop trying to please everyone else. Have a great New year!

    Hey Rachelle!

    Ok, I have to admit…some of your goals although motivating were a little heartbreaking at the same time. I really could feel your eagerness to become more of the person you want to be vs. who you feel like you have to be because of “life circumstances.” I too was there a couple years ago…working 50+ hours per week, barely seeing my husband and feeling overwhelmed and hopeless. Since then, I honestly have done a complete 180 and feel like a new person. This journey has been amazing and I would love to chat with you more! I blog over at and it would be cool for you to stop by and say hi! I’d also love learn more about your plans in making the transition to reaching your goals…like staying at home with your girls.

    Happy New Year!!! xoxo ~Jennifer
