Every year we are told to make resolutions and goals for a bright new future and year. This always seems daunting and sort of a lost cause. Resolutions seem so finite, a rule or goal that you must complete to make the year successful. I love a good goal but I’m more of a guideline gal. Guidelines help me shape the way I live my life rather than restricting to rules or goals. Let's be honest, I always seem to break or bend them anyways. While thinking about a guideline to live a better life in 2018, my husband and I decided that we would mark 2018 with one word. That word is FOCUS. 2018 will be a big year of fun, adventure, and love for us. You’ll be seeing more of that in 2018 and I can’t wait to share everything with you. Here are the five “focus” categories that I will be centering our New Year around. F – Focus on Family O – Focus on Organization C – Focus on Contentment U – Focus on Us S – Focus on Simplicity Stay tuned for my upcoming post about my focus on organizing our home.
