Goodbye 2013. Hello 2014!

Another year goes by. It seems to always go by so fast when you try and take a look at in retrospect. I made a lot of transitions in 2013 and 2014 is already proving to be a jam-packed year of working hard, having fun, and living better. Let’s take a look at what went on and what is to come.

The most popular posts in 2013 were…

2013popposts

  1. How to make your own hands free nursing bra on the cheap – This post actually almost didn’t exist. I was told that it was so simple and common knowledge that there wasn’t a place for such a tutorial on the internet. But with supplies you most likely already have on hand, you can pump hands free using this simple tutorial. You’re welcome!
  2. Why Menstrual Cups are Better Than Pads and Tampons – This was actually a sponsored post courtesy of MySecretCup.com. It gives you the basic low down on making the switch to a product that is better for you when it comes to managing “that time of the month.”
  3. ShopDiaper.com Review – This post was also sponsored. I had to add a disclaimer at the top because although I had no issues with receiving my product and it’s quality, ShopDiaper.com seems to have dropped the ball since I published the review.

Personal Goals for 2014

As most of you know, I’m not a fan of making resolutions. A failed resolution adds too much pressure to the mix, so instead I like to start every year with a list of goals that might better my life or add new perspective. Here is my list for 2014:

  • Work on time management. This is my way of saying “get organized.” My fiance says I have no concept of time nor do I acknowledge it as something that exists. That’s my big thing this year.
  • Blog three or four times a week. I have down time and busy time, but I’d like to try and be more consistent this year. I have lots of plans for my blog in 2014, including social media usage and promotion as well.
  • Hit the gym. Yes, I’m serious. I’ve never been one to work out, but I’ve already made plans with my fiance about getting off this wretched baby weight.
  • Read more. I generally read about an average of one book a month, but I’d like to try and do more. I want to set aside time to read and make my way through my existing library.
  • Cook and create more things. I need to really let go of my woes and stop complaining. It is true that I am busy, but if I put my mind to it I can do anything. I just need to put my mind into doing more for me and that includes crafting and cooking.

My word for 2014 is…

This is my first year doing the word-themed thing. I chose time because I want to slow down and enjoy my time with my family. After I’m done with school this year I won’t be able to have the luxury of spending this much of my day at home. I want to make memories of these last few months. I also want to take some time each day to focus on my own personal needs. I tend to get lost in the shuffle of routine. I need to take the time to finish things. Finishing projects makes you feel accomplished and gives motivation to do more things.

Here’s to having an amazing year in 2014!
