Space Cowboys and Goals of 2016...!!!

Hey Y'all,

This is a recap of last years goals. I just wanted to remember the goals I set for myself last year. Sadly I am going to say that many of these did not happen. I tried and failed to make them happen and now that my life is changing, due to the fact that in about two weeks I will be a mommy for the very first time. I feel like this years goals need to reflect upon that. So say goodbye to the old goals. The ones listed below are those goals.

- Travel More -
Lately I have had some huge life changes happen to me and I decided its time to make explore the world that I live in. I want to go places and see new things. I would really like to go to Salem, MA. This summer I would like to go camping somewhere I have never been before. I also really want to go to Florida to see sea turtles laying their egg. I then want to go back when the eggs are going to hatch and watch them make their way to the ocean. 

- Read More -
I want to spend more time reading this year. Last year I only met my reading goal because I had to change it. So this year I would like to read my goal of twenty-five books. 

- Save More and Spend Less -
I work at a grocery store so finding things to buy is easier than it should be. I would really like to start saving more money. This would be a good skill to enforce now while I am still young. 

- Focus on the Important Things -
For the last couple months my life has been very stressful. I want to put the main focus on things like my job and my schooling. Both of these are very important and essential to further my dreams of life.  
- Live Life -
These are so many things I want to do with you with my life. This is the year that I complete some of them. I want to have more fun and do things I normally don't take time to do. For example, I've decided  I want to learn a language. I think I'm gonna pursue french but I might also try my hand at Spanish. It would be best to do one language at a time.

- Garden and Cook More -
I really want to grow my own vegetables. I also want to cook more. I really enjoy it and I don't get to do it enough.  I also want to start working out and eat better. 

*************************************************************************************************

So now that I have reflected upon my old goals, it is that time of year when we make new ones. Of course, I know that this means that most of the goals I set for myself will be forgotten about. I will mostly likely let them die as the new year produces new obstacles for me to tackle.

- Be a Good Mommy -
I feel like this is the most important goal I can set for myself as a new mother to be. I know I won't be perfect and that I'll make mistakes. I just hope that I will be the best that I can be for my daughter because she deserves the best. She deserves everything and I want to give her the world. I just hope I can be there for her as much as I want to be. I'm worried I won't be a good mother. There's so much I'm worried about as a new mom to be. But I know I will learn and that is the best I can hope for. 

- Move -
So as many of you know that I live an hour away from where I work and my boyfriend lives. I wish to change that this year. Not only would this improve the lives of those I live with, my sister and father, but it would bring me closer to the things that matter most to me, my new full-time job with Comcast and my boyfriend who means the world to me. Also once we move closer, my boyfriend plans to move in with us to help with the baby and other such things. I'm excited to live with him and start that part of our lives together. 

- Read, Draw, and Write - 
This year I really want to let my creative juices flow. I want to read my goal of twenty-five books that I set for myself on goodreads. I feel like this may be easier now that I am on the road to becoming a mommy. Also I'm gonna have some down time before the baby is due to read, write, and even draw if I am inspired to. I just don't know. I have less than two weeks before she comes, if she comes on time. It's honestly one huge waiting game. I want to try and write more. I want to blog more as well. I'm hoping the two will go hand in hand. I may be blogging about becoming a new mom and my experiences from that. I may also try to get back into drawing and such. I just need to get inspired to do so and that's hard for me. I'm hoping that becoming a new mom will inspire me to do a lot of things. I think it will be a very interesting time for me. I am excited to see where it takes me. 

- Save More and Spend Less -
I want to try and actually save some money this year. I was doing okay for myself until I got the seasonal job at Kohls. The discount, along with the coupons, and other things really blew me away money wise. So now I need to get back into the grove of saving money and paying my bills. I want to get out of debt this year. That is very important to me. I am sick and tired of being in debt. Its the absolute worst. So this year, I plan to get myself out of debt for good. 

- Cook More, Garden More, and Get Creative -
Once I move, I want to start a garden. I think its important to produce a lot of the veggies you get yourself. It saves you money and provides your family with food. I also want to cook more. I love to cook and I don't do it nearly enough. I'm hoping to start planning out meals and going through my cupboards on a weekly basis to see what I need. I like this idea. I also want to do something fun in the kitchen. I want to create places to keep my spices and baking items. I want to have things organized in a way that speaks to me. It will also make things easier for me if I can find things when I need them.



Well I think that is all I have for now. I'm sure I'll have more things as time progresses into the new year. I am excited to see what things change for me. I am also super excited to see how my life changes taking on the new role as mommy. I'm also excited to see how becoming a father will change my boyfriend. I'm excited for all of our firsts together as parents and a couple. It is a really exciting and scary time for us. 

Oh yeah, I included space cowboys in my title because my boyfriend is playing a video game on the PS4 and the music to it is so cool. He's been playing the game all day and enjoying it a lot. I'm so happy he has time to do the things he loves. I'm hoping that becoming a father will still allow him to play video games and do all the things he enjoys. I know it will be hard but I'm sure we can find time for each other and the things we love to do as a couple and on our own.
