The Ever Evolving New Year's Resolution

Hooray!! Another year has come and gone and this week we welcome 2015 into our lives. Can you believe it?! 2015!! I mean, it certainly doesn't feel like 15 years since we were all anxiously awaiting Y2K. For me, 2015 means I'll be turning the big 3-0! Unbelievable! And with a new year fast approaching, people start to take a look back at the last year and review all the wonderful (and maybe not so wonderful) events that took place. This leads many of us to set goals for the coming year and make those darn resolutions. 
I started to think about what goals I have for myself in the coming year and I realized that they're not too different from the goals and resolutions I set for myself pretty much every year. This got me thinking that with a new year, I don't necessarily want to change or better myself only for the time being (because let's be honest, how long do we work on our resolutions??), but rather keep on the same path I've been walking for many years now. I'm constantly evolving as a person, and though my situation might change (ie: have more children, move, lose someone...) I can always keep working on the same goals I've set for myself time and time again...just maybe with a tweak here or there.  
So here are just some of my ever evolving goals and resolutions for 2015, that may or may not already be a work in progress...
So just deal with it.
There is a great list of 35 Little Acts of Kindness I found here that I try to incorporate into my life already but know I can always be doing  more.
Whatever it is, just get it done. No procrastinating.

Continue to appreciate my children and motherhood, and be the best mom I can be. I will focus on coming to terms with the fact that being a mom is enough...that I will never be some crazy important business woman and that's ok.
Remind myself that the future is ready for me and that I'm so very thankful for the life I've lived.

I try to always remind myself that my life with my husband and kids is the best adventure there is... that we are only given one life and to make the most of it. I will continue working on the goals I've set and trying to better myself. I can't wait to see what this new year brings.

I hope everyone has a fantastic New Years...I'd love to hear what some of your resolutions or goals are for 2015!
