2015 – Year in Review

28 Dec

This 2015 review will be short and sweet because that’s exactly what the year was for me. This year was the fastest year that I have experienced in recent memory. The truth though, is that I did not manage my time well this year, which made 2015 more challenging for myself than it needed to be and my need to control every.single.thing. was no help to the downward spiral of available time.

But then I remember that my goal in 2015 was to get fit after baby. I did that! I remember that I gained obscene amounts of weight with my pregnancy and I worked it ALL off in 2015, and then some. So, maybe I did manage my time well in that I set my goal and I met it…but my goal shouldn’t be my only focal point. Or should it?!

One of the things I hear about myself most often from friends and loved ones (the people who will tell me the REAL truth about myself) is that my ability to set a goal and crush it is admirable. I appreciate that insight because it’s something that I find to be an asset. However, at what point does that character trait inhibit my ability to find balance in all things in my life?

Did I devote too much time to working out and meeting my 2015 goal? I’m not sure that I did, but I’m not sure that I didn’t.

What I do know, however, is that my heart is more full at the end of 2015 than it was in the beginning. Feeling fat and out of shape put me in a bad mental state and I was less appreciative of all that I have in January than I am now. So, I guess that means 2015 was great.

My new goal for 2016 is exactly what I missed out on in 2015…time! I want to get off my butt for more than just exercise. I want to bake cookies with my son, I want to take my son to the park in 2016, I want to get my Christmas presents to my family and friends on time in 2016.

What about you? If you would be so willing, I would love to hear what your goals/hopes/dreams are for 2016!
