New Year's Day

I can't believe I didn't post yesteday.  It was a crazy day . . . my oldest spent New Year's Eve downtown Chicago, the littles wanted pizza and we watched the ball drop with a bit of bubbly.  

Even though my son wasn't with me, I still felt connected.  At midnight we exchanged texts and I thought of all the NYE's for 16 plus years--bittersweet.  I had a quiet moment and thought of all my loved ones that I couldn't be with.  

The day was a blur but that moment at midnight was crystal clear.

Today was incredibly busy.  Writing, organizing rooms, night stands, books, planners, so busy the kids and I forgot to eat lunch!  My oldest came home safetly on the train.  All is well.

Lessons Learned:

We need to slow down and make a plan otherwise we don't know where we are going.  I created space for habits to form leading to goals being met.  

When we have a really good map, bumps in the road won't matter.  I have a good map of 2018.

Slow and steady wins the race.

Being alone creates clarity.

A great first day to an amazing year.  Let's do this!
