Happy New Years

January 2, 2017

Happy New Year! Thank you so much to everyone who has followed along with The Southern Trunk this past year. Your support and encouragement means more than you know. We are so excited to keep growing and introduce some new projects this year and we’re eager to see what 2017 has in store.

This past New Years Eve was pretty much like the last two years. Ian and I cooked ourselves dinner and talked about all the things 2016 brought us, taught us and the goals we are setting for 2017. Our night also included being cozied up in our pajamas on the couch. I have always believed in setting goals for myself. Not for personal achievement or really even success. Setting short and long terms goals keeps me motivated and passionate. When you know what you’re working towards, it’s far less easy to get distracted, and easier to adapt to life changes the require you to alter certain plans.

With that being said, there are a few things that I want more of this year and other things I want to seriously change. My goals are on a separate list, but these are changes and habits that I want to make evident in my life.

  • More Prayer. Less Complaining.
  • More Grace. Less Expectations.
  • More Reading. Less Netflix.
  • More Focus. Less Distractions.
  • More Hard Work. Less Laziness.
  • More Patience. And More. And More.
  • More Listening. Less Talking.
  • More Encouraging. Less Comparing.
  • More Serving. Less Selfishness.
  • LOVE. Lots of Love.

What are some of your New Years resolutions, goals or habits you want to break or make?
