It’s the middle of December, and the number one question that everyone has been asking themselves is, “Where has this year gone?” My answer in short: “I have no idea!” Being pregnant for nine months of the year and then giving birth to my second daughter is the first thing that comes to mind. All the planning and prepping while keeping up with work, family, a very active three-year-old and a newborn also played a huge role. But the interesting thing is, while most of us are still wondering where the time went, we are simultaneously diving into the big plans and goals for 2019 and writing out the long list of resolutions. Is it any wonder why we feel as though there are never enough hours or days in a week? We are so consumed with what’s next that we often fail to sloooow right down and take a good look at what is. So, I want to encourage you to take a little time to reflect on 2018 before designing the new year ahead so that you can gain the clarity needed not just to move forward, but to have a specific destination you wish to reach.💫

On the blog, “The last chapter of 2018.”💻 A simple list of questions to help you summarize the past twelve months and gain clarity about what it is you want most for the year ahead.✨

Our deepest desires are hidden in our daydreams 💭 Let your mind wonder, explore your every curiosity, and make sure that whatever you pursue, it ultimately makes you happy.💕

It’s an “add to cart” kinda day👗👛👠

There are far better things ahead than any we leave behind. Trust the magic of new beginnings.✨ #chapterone

And so it begins...shopping almost done (can you believe it!) and wrapping in the works🎁 I have no idea how we are already in the middle of December but I couldn’t be more excited about my favourite festive holiday!

Status: currently recharging🧘🏻‍♀️

Thanks @thetracymoore for the perfect post!

Taking more time for “spiritual maintenance” these days. It’s important to give yourself permission to log out, unplug, and turn off every now and again to enjoy the little luxuries in life.✨

What are some of your favourite ways to disconnect and unwind?

We won’t be distracted by comparison if we are captivated with purpose.💫

An investment in knowledge pays the best interest.✨

There is something to be said about having a grateful heart. Yesterday we celebrated my daughter’s baptism and I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day.🙏🏼💗 Being surrounded by so much love, support, and happiness from our incredible family and friends made yesterday a day I will never forget. That’s the thing about “having it all”. It has nothing to do with money, materialistic things, or superficial statuses. It’s about the things money can’t buy. It’s about being rich in love, in health, and in happiness, and being grateful for the moments you can’t put into words. Motherhood is by far my greatest gift and privilege, and I’m beyond grateful to share this journey with all of the amazing family and friends in my life 💗🙏🏼 #grateful #myheartisfull #perspective
