Hey there! I'm Linda! I was born and raised in Maine, spent the last 6 years in Portland, and now call the Boston area my home!
Most days you can find me playing on the floor with my daughter, writing love letters to my husband, and reading with a cup of tea!
I am mostly known for being able to find all the things my husband has lost, making as much food as I can from scratch, my obsession with chips and salsa, and my mad organization skills.
Well, it’s so crazy to believe that another year has passed. I don’t know about you, but we actually missed the start of the New Year. Steven and I put Lily down to bed as usual, and didn’t have any actual plans to stay up for the ball drop. But, I’ve been at the end of season 4 of Gilmore Girls (my favorite part of the series!) and I wanted to keep watching, so I did. Before I knew it, I finished my fourth episode in a row and it was 12:03! Haha.
Every year I like to do a blog post welcoming in the new year, but first, I wanted to share some of the highlights from 2017!
I think that every person experiences negative things throughout the year, but I think overall 2017 was a really great year, and I love to focus on the experiences that were positive and brought me joy! I think if we stop and do that on a regular basis it really does cultivate a grateful heart and attitude!
I have a feeling that 2018 is going to be a really fantastic year! I’m not sure what it is, but I know something is going to be different and I’m so excited about it!
All right, you all know how much I LOVE my PowerSheets! Over the past month I’ve been working hard on reflecting on the year before, looking at what worked, what didn’t work, what fires me up and so on.
A big picture was created before my eyes as I started to focus on what REALLY matters. What’s going to matter when I’m 80. As I went through this process I was able to find my word for the year of 2018:
I am SO excited to focus on this word in every facet of my life. I have set the foundation for so many things – my relationships, my body, my faith, my business, and so on. Now it’s time to really start building on those and lead a THRIVING life, and not just surviving. I was really surprised to see what my ten goals for the year ended up being (maybe I’ll share those in a different post sometime!) but I am so EXCITED about each and every one of them! I’ve created action plans, and Steven and I worked on the first two together, and now I’m so ready to dig in!
I hope you all have an incredible year ahead of you, and be sure to focus on what really matters in your life – and don’t forget, your goals can change throughout the year!
What are some things you are excited about for 2018? Tell me about them in the comments!
