2018

well…hello fam bam

How are we already weeks into the new year?! I’m not one for resolutions but I am one for fixing whatever needs fixed in your life, as soon as you can! Last year I adopted a new diet, upped my Pilates fix to 3x/week, and welcomed my husband to the wonderful world of working full time! 

I really do love reflecting on what the past year has brought (good, bad, and ugly) and I am all for finding areas that could use some improvement.

So while I am NOT calling these resolutions, I did want to share what I’ve been
focusing on so far this year.

  1. I’ve been trying to pray myself to sleep rather than waiting until my phone slips out of my hands and smacks me on the forehead.
  2. Praying myself awake rather than grabbing for my phone first thing (are you sensing a pattern yet?).
  3. Spending the beginning of my morning in the word (and not the kind on Twitter). I was given the New Morning Mercies devotional by my sweet Tay last year on my birthday and I am LOVING it so far! I then take these concepts to my prayer journal so I can ruminate further and make sure it sticks if you know what I mean. 
  4. Spending more time and money on experiences and less on things. (The opposite of wearing less and going out more? Felt like this needed a Drake reference).
  5. Using my phone as a tool instead of like a lifeline. I spend far too much time on it accomplishing absolutely nothing (as do a lot of people I spend time with).
  6. Treating others with the same grace God treats me. I am one with zero patience and a sass mouth, but I want to exercise a kinder heart and a happier attitude. “Start each day with a grateful heart” if you will, but carry that gratitude all day long.
  7. Do the thing I love on this beautiful nightmare we call the internet! I am my own worst enemy when it comes to generating useful content in that I ditch it if it’s not perfect. I want to do a better job of doing rather than perfecting!

What have you been up to so far this year? Also…thanks for reading this. You are my people 🙂

Happy 2018!

Love,
​Ashley
