As 2013 comes to a close, I've been thinking about 2014 and what I would like to accomplish. Then last night it occurred to me: 2014 should be the year of "Icing."
I am not going to make goals.
I'm not going to obsess over what I "need" to do.
I'm not going to apply unnecessary pressure to myself.
I'm having a baby at the beginning of the year, and taking care of a newborn is a lot of work. I don't need to add stress to that by feeling like a failure when I don't meet self-imposed goals.
Therefore, in 2014, I'm going to be the best mom I can be to my children, the best wife I can be to my husband, and the best friend I can be to myself...
Everything else, any accomplishments, projects finished, etc. beyond that are all going to be icing on the cake.
Bring on the New Year.
