in the now.

as we come down from the holiday highs, many of us are busy jotting down resolutions, reflecting on the past year, or making goals for the next. i tried to write something thoughtful reflecting on 2013 or what i might expect for 2014, but honestly? i've always kinda lived in the now. yes, i have made "those" resolutions in the past...exercise more, eat healthy, try new things...and i do resolve to do them again. but those have become a given. and, sure, i have dreams. i have milestones that i'd like to reach in the future, but if i focus too much on them, then i lose sight of what's right in front of me. i miss out on what's happening, now.

so for the next year, i plan to just do. whatever. whenever. because my kids want to. because i want to. because it makes us happy, right now. and i can only hope that these experiences will build a better foundation for those [future] dreams and milestones. at least that's what i'm telling myself, right now.

are you a planner? or do you go with the flow...
roll with the punches?

  3. Spontaneity has its value. People who plan too much are a pain to be with.

  9. I'm keeping my resolutions to myself this year-I decided to not fail front of everyone else! I try to plan a little, though things usually fall thru and I'm disappointed. But then again, I enjoy the unexpected moments that happen...

  10. That's a great resolution Rebecca. It is so overlooked, especially as a mom, to be able to just enjoy the moment. Love the wine and black in this look!

  11. I usually hate making plans because it never goes that way. But I have something on my mind. Hope that in 2014 I'll be more productive.

  13. Love the red color! I am horrible about making resolutions, so I stopped doing them about 5 years ago :) That way I don't feel bad if I don't end up sticking to my resolutions!

  24. That's a great "resolution," Becks. I was never consistent with making resolutions, so I just try to make small goals which works best for me. Hope this year is stellar for you! <3
