Today is the day! We're making our "wish list" a reality, and I'm not talking about the one we're sending to Santa, I'm talking about the one we keep dreaming abour in our everyday lives. It takes 66 days to form a habit. If we fast forward 66 days that puts us at Valentine's Day. Don't wait until January 1. Let's kick 2019 off in high gear by starting TODAY!!! What do you want to see change in your life in 2019? I'll be honest. Our goals are lofty, but I am a firm believer that if we do this together, and if we say it out loud to those around us that they have a better chance of coming true. So here it goes!
1: Nathan is vowing to end work before dinner every night (unless he is schedule to work a late shift at our ice cream shoppe). 2: I am vowing to be more dedicated to my marriage instead of going with the flow and passing like ships in the night.
It's not fair to my husband that I take on extra work, and it's not fair to my kids that we don't put our marriage first and therefore often find ourselves telling the kids something when the other parent told them something else. It might be as trivial as they get 10 more minutes of video games while the other parent said 20 more minutes, but more often than not we've both sent emails to their teachers ON THE SAME DAY because we couldn't remember who said they were going to complete that task. We often spend our "date time" while I am editing and he is scrolling on his phone. Those dates are spent hearing each other but not really listening. So here's to looking each other in the eye and truly listening to what the other has to say for at least 10 minutes every day. If we don't have 10 minutes for each other on a daily basis, then our priorities are not in order.
Your turn! What do YOU want to see as a habit in your life by 2-14-19?!
