Mamas! I can’t believe it! There’s just one more month of 2018 left to go!
Have you already started reviewing this year?
We have a ton of excitement planned for 2019 but, looking back on this past year is crucial to have an even better, more productive one ahead!
Of course, there is no way to tell the future, but there are ways that we can set up our lives to try to ensure that we experience as much happiness and success as possible! Are you ready to make sure that you get more out of life in 2019!? Yes?! Yes!
Crucial Tips for Getting the Most Out of 2019
1. Say “Yes” More
Some of our biggest regrets are the things that we do not do in life! Imagine if someone offers you a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that you turn down. You might spend the rest of your days wondering what would have been if you had accepted it! So, it’s always a good idea to try saying “yes” to anything that comes your way! Of course, you should use your best judgement about these situations too – obviously if something seems unsafe, steer clear!
2. Connect With People
In our era, networking is HUGE! I have never once regretted meeting someone new through an event or social setting! You never know who you might get to know and how you can benefit each other in the future! Surrounding ourselves with a strong group of friends can help to open up new opportunities and it can also help us feel supported during difficult periods! So, it’s worth joining various groups (mamas- I know you feel me with those Facebook groups and play date pals!) and clubs to try and get out there to meet as many people as possible!
3. Sort Out Your Finances
One thing that regularly holds people back in life is poor financial management. If your own money situation is in something of disarray at the minute, it’s worth taking some time to sort it out as much as you can! Move your savings over into an American Express savings account so that you can benefit from good interest rates! It doesn’t hurt to start making regular repayments for any debts or outstanding loans that you may have! This will push you closer to financial independence which will make you a lot more independent in life in general!
4. Learn How To Ask For Help
One skill that not many of us have is knowing when to ask for help! As moms, I know first hand how hard that can be. Even when it comes to folding laundry, I’d rather it sit for weeks and do it myself than let someone else take it on! There will be times when life gets on top of us and we could all do with a helping hand from our friends and family! We’ve all heard the saying, “It takes a village,” and it couldn’t be more true in asking for help when we’re three feet deep in kids’ underwear and macaroni noodles!
5. Set Goals
To ensure you maintain focus on improving yourself in 2019, take some time over these next 30 days to make a list of goals (personal goals, goals for your family, financial goals, etc.)! These can help motivate you to keep on striving for improvement in all that you do throughout the year! Plus, once you meet your goals, you’ll have even more motivation to keep crossing things off your list!
So mama, take these tips, utilize them, and get ready for an even better year next year!!
