Are you into New Year Resolutions? I don’t know about you, but the pressure of the New Year Resolution is just too much! It’s the implication of success or failure that turns me off. If I resolved to jog 3x/week and found I hated it and stopped, that isn’t a failure, that’s a valuable learning experience. If I resolved to jog 3x/week, and it killed my knees after 2 months, and I switched to yoga, again, that’s not failure, that’s called adaptation!
BUT! What if just three words could help you think about what worked in 2017, what you need to let go of, and what you want to try in 2018!
Got a printer handy? I’ve made a pretty Happy 2018 Worksheet (click the link to download) with my favorite three review words. Use this worksheet or write it out on your own piece of paper — whatever is easier for you! Then when you have a moment, grab your favorite pen, marker, or crayon if it’s more handy (no judgement), and fill it out! That’s also the beauty of this review! It only requires about 5 minutes of time!
After you fill out your sheet, hold onto it! Tuck it into your planner or journal, or tape it to your wall to take a look at in a few months to see what has changed and what has stayed the same. This list can be fluid, just like the amazing year ahead of us in 2018!
If you do give this Happy 2018 Worksheet review a try, and want to share a section or all of it for accountability or a cheering squad, use the tag #keepditchtry and #thathappymom on Instagram. I so want to see what you come up with so I can cheer you on and you can use this hashtag to inspire and support others!
I’ll be sharing my own review with these hashtags soon! So make sure to check that out! And tell me what you think of resolutions or picking a guide/inspiration word for the year on Instagram @thathappymom! I’m open to changing my stance on these annual traditions.
Also, BIG NEWS!! I’m making the final edits to a FREE 14-page workbook with a step-by-step guide for setting your own happy mom goals AND taking actions toward those goals without feeling stressed out! You can sign up for that here on the blog on 12/31! So stay tuned!
