Quiet

1/01/2013



The baby is upstairs sleeping, and my husband has taken the dogs to the park. My house is completely quiet, which is a rare thing. As I read through other blogs and posts which speak of resolutions and predictions for the year ahead, I have to think of what I want to accomplish in 2013. I realize that I am happy, content, with my life right now. I want to continue, as we are, for as long as possible.

Our little family of three is happy and healthy. We have so much to be thankful for. I want to be able to remember this feeling of contentment and peace, as I get wrapped up in life and want more, bigger, and better things. If I had to make resolutions for 2013, it would be to appreciate all of the little things. I want to live more simply, and appreciate all of the beauty that surrounds us. This blog has helped open my eyes to seeing the pleasures in small, everyday moments. When I look back to this post or this one, it's so easy to remember exactly how I felt at that moment in time.

For the upcoming year I want to cherish my time with my baby, who's quickly becoming less of a baby. I want to appreciate my husband, and grow our relationship. I would like to travel a little more, be a bit more spontaneous and fun. I would love to go on a random weekend trip - just because, with no planning at all. I want to appreciate the quiet moments, rather than rushing to fill the time with 'something'. Perhaps 2013 will bring the creation of a new life... and our little family of three will expand. But I'm not rushing into it...

Oh, happy new year! Such sweet goals. Hoping for an (unrushed) expansion to my own family this year, and many similar things. Being more in-the-moment. Similar to you, blogging has also made me realize how much good there is in my life!

So true! What a nice perspective. It is refreshing to hear someone talk about contentment instead of a resolution. It is easy to forget we have everything we need and our babes are only small once so we should wish it away or get to busy to notice. Thanks!

Great perspective - I'm not doing anything resolution-like either.
