It's that time of year when I find myself looking back. Thinking about the last year and even the last few years. Reality is that lots of times I end up looking back at the whole journey. Sixteen years is a LONG time.
The beginning was pretty rocky. Our girls struggled and we dealt with very hard behaviors and words, mistrust, aggression, and so much more. The stress and anxiety affected our marriage, our whole family, and other relationships like friendships. Life was NOTHING like we thought it would be.
I had to do something. My family was SO unhappy. We were constantly in survival...bouncing from one emotional outburst to another. I started to dig and dig deep! Lots of research, extended education along with trial and error began to shape new tools and techniques that worked. Looking back, I definitely remember when I finally began to feel like a good Mom again. The shift began to happen and it was making a difference for my entire family!
When I began to do things differently, there was such a relief. We all felt it. Behaviors slowed down. The wedge in our relationships began to shrink. Those emotional out bursts that basically ruled our life just began to fade away. Holidays were better. Family time became more fun and joyful. Life was much closer to what we wanted for our family.
As I fine tuned how I parented, our children began to thrive not just survive and that's when we REALLY became a family! SO as I look back over the past year I would say I have met many of the goals I had in mind for 2016. And as I look over the past 16 years, I am pleased that the original goal we set out to accomplish - giving all of our children a one-and-only parent relationship - has really happened too.
My theory is that we should look back from time to time for a couple of reasons. First, so that we can find the good, those things that worked - the successes - and be sure to carry them forward into the new year. And second, to determine if what we are doing is working or not. Then...when we have gathered both kinds of information, we need to take it and intentionally do a big turn to look towards the future, the next year.
Our new plan can exist of putting into place those things that were working before and taking whatever leap we need to take to do it differently so that the next year is that much better and that much closer to what we want for ourselves, our children, and our whole family.
SO, I have 2 questions for YOU...
1. Looking back, have you met your 2016 goals? Your goals for yourself? Your "Mothering" goals? Your child? Your marriage? Your whole family?
2. Looking forward, do you have a detailed plan to make 2017 all that you want it to be? What successes and goodness can you carry forward? What worked and what didn't? What leap do YOU need to make to accomplish your goals? What needs to be focused on in order to enhance the quality of life for your entire family??
There's one thing I know for sure...Life CAN absolutely be more peaceful, more happy and so much closer to where you want it to be. It isn't always easy to look forward and see a plan for how to get where you want to be. This journey we are on can be tough and cause us to lose our way. It can cause us to lose hope for a better future. I totally get it and that's why I am here! I believe we are in this together and I want to help you create a detailed action plan that will make it easier for you to see and acquire the 2017 you want for your family!
Together we will take everything that worked last year and combine it with proven tools and techniques and support like you have never had before and work together to make 2017 your best year yet!
