Life: Word of 2018

I don’t lean well. I don't sit well. I don't slow well. 
I am a power through girl- things are going to get done, no matter what. 

BUT... this year (2018) has to look a little different.

2018 will bring
  • 32 years for hubs (Jan 7)
  • 9 years of marriage (Jan 9)
  • 30 years of age ( Oct 11)
OH YEAH! and a baby no later than January 15th. 

While it was hard to swallow not having a natural birth, we have a very breech baby and will be having a c-section on Jan 15th at the latest- you know because babies sometimes don't like being told when their birthdays will be and decide to bust down the water wall. So we shall see when BABY H will join our rankings within the next two weeks. 

BECAUSE of all of this...

I have considered a few different words to represent my goal in 2018. The first word that came to mind was slow- again if you know me, or have read any of my blogs = I don' t slow well, I am a get up and go girl. I think that there will have to be large doses of slow, especially in the next two to three months but I didn't feel is encompassed the wholeness of what I was needing this year. I also considered this
because I feel like this is going to be my fuel for the next undefined amount of time. #ILOVEBREAD
So this will be my underlying principles- teehee. 

My word of 2018
re·li·ance

rəˈlīəns/
noun
  • dependence on or trust in someone or something:        synonyms: dependence, dependency 
  • a person or thing on which someone depends.
I want to embrace all parts of this definition. I want to be the best mama, wife, worker I can be- I want to be the person that people can depend upon. I thrive on being the person that others than depend upon... but with a season of new with baby and the need for recovery after surgery, I am going to need to live in the first part of the definition. I already stated, I do not lean well- but I am going to have to lean into my hubs, my family, and mostly to God to get me through recovery and learning my new role: Mom. 2018 I will have reliance on God first, those around me second, and seek to be one that others can put their reliance on third.

Happy 2018!
<3 Anastasia
