Happy New Year, friends! We hope your Christmas was as wonderful as ours. It is almost time to say goodbye to 2018 and HELLO to 2019!!
This was ThePolkaDotPosie's 7th year in business and although we had set big goals for 2018, some family matters kept us from achieving them. But that is the beauty of having a small business...when life pulls you in a different direction, you can shift your focus and come back when you are ready. We worried that our absence would cause some to forget our name, but the support we felt throughout the year from our loyal friends and customers gave us the confidence to do what we needed to do, and the inspiration to start 2019 better than ever. As always, our goals for 2019 are BIG (maybe we will finally makeover this blog. Ha!) and we hope that this is the year we will achieve them.
So what sort of Goals & Resolutions do YOU have for 2019? Our yearly FREE printable will help you plan...
As in years past, our printable has a space for you to write a goal for each category of your life. You can make these goals/resolutions as simple or specific as you want. We also have a blank space that you can use for something more personal for you or your family. Perhaps you are saving for home improvement, or a vacation, or perhaps you have a personal goal of starting your own Etsy shop or meeting the love of your life :)
And, back by popular demand, we have also kept a space for the "Word of the Year," which is best described as a word that you want to focus on all 365 days. My Word of the Year for 2019 is:
I was reminded MANY times this year how short life is and how things can change in a moment. It is so easy to get bogged down in negativity and we can all find something to complain about if we allow ourselves to. But that is simply not how I want to live the moments I have with the people I love. So this year...I want to search for JOY in everything I do each day because tomorrow isn't promised.
So what will your word of the year be?
The purpose of writing out goals & resolutions isn't to make your life more stressful, but rather to encourage you to do more of what makes you happy!! Have fun with this list and use it as a guide for the next year. We may have some repeats on our list (I'm looking at you Health & Fitness. Ha!) but what's important is that we try. It's never too late to set a new goal…or achieve an old one.
Happy New Year, friends!!! Thank you for being a part of our lives and our dream. See you in 2019!
