  1. My intention in 2018 is to be more engaged in every area of my life- as a wife, mom, friend, blogger and in my career. I’m working to get promoted and pregnant in the new year- ha! 🙂

    Here’s my post:

    Love this—so much resonated with me—vacations and date nights are high on my list too! Even your 2017 mantra hit home—although I’m not a perfectionist myself, I find that in many business and government arenas, this concept rings true and prevents progress!

    Wishing you all that you want in the new year—and best wishes on your fertility journey!!

    Goals posts are some of my favorite to read AND write! Thanks for sharing your journey!

    My word for this year is GRACE which is a reminder to let go of perfectionism and black-and-white thinking, and lean into God’s gift of grace while also lightening up on myself. I wrote about it here:

    Here’s to a great year of chasing after our goals, learning more about ourselves, and becoming the women we were created to be.

  7. IVF round 2 for us this year too! Praying for success for you guys. If you want to walk through it together I know it helps having someone to vent to that truly “gets it”. As you know, infertility can be so lonely. Xo! @mrsordavis

    YES!! Goals are meant for you! I used to get a little self-conscious on my goals and decisions, but now I think about it why does it matter what other thinks. The whole purpose of this process is so I can work on myself. Everyone is on a different path and it is okay that not everyone sees your perspective. I’m so glad to hear you are working on you!

    I absolutely love this! Your blog is amazing and I’m excited to follow along with you.

    I’m working on many things in my life, mainly to be more present in the moment. I always plan for the next thing, what happens next, where are we going next, what could happen…NEXT. I want to enjoy the moment and breathe.

    So happy I stumbled across your blog. So much of what you wrote in this post hits home with me. I’ve struggled with “perfectionism” my entire life and as an adult I realize I am still looking for that approval from others when I really should be focusing on being happy with myself. I’m also an OTF fan and IVF mama as well! I can’t wait to read more of your blog posts and I’ve subscribed so I can join in on your journey in 2018!

    Before Christmas last year, my hubby and I got into an argument regarding prioritizing. While I don’t want to use one word for my goals in 2018 I know that it tops my list. I tend to want to do it all but I am finding out it’s okay to slow down and take a breather. I am also in the process of weeding out people that are taking away time from those that matter. I would also love to go on more date nights with the hubby and to read more. I read a lot last year before September and slowed down because I wanted to start a blog. As priority is the name of the game, I want to ensure that I also get to enjoy my other hobbies including reading, scrapbooking and swimming.

    Hi Amanda. Do you have a training regime for your half marathons? I’ve strived to be a runner for years, but can never seem to hold myself to it (hello, Obliger), and originally planned a goal to run my first half marathon by 25. Welp, almost 5 years later and here I am (not running). I’m working on holding myself more accountable in my personal goals and would like to (hopefully) run my first for my 30th birthday at the end of April. Recommendations for training? Thanks!
