My Most Important New Year's Resolution

This year has been rough.

Not only on a global level, but on a personal one as well.

I've witnessed pain through one of my children that I've never had to experience before. I've had to dig even deeper for the courage needed to keep on keeping on.

And so, as I sit down to write my new year's resolutions this year, I'll probably re-evaluate my daily habits and routines just like I usually do, but most importantly, I'm going to commit to loving myself.

Like really, truly, wholeheartedly loving myself like I would my own child.

Life can be really hard.

And just when I think I have things figured out, it throws me another curve ball.

So, this year, I commit to being kind and gentle with me. I commit to letting go of the need to get everything right or have everything figured out. I commit to taking care of myself mentally, physically, and emotionally.


The girl I get to live with every single one of these 365 days ahead.
