February 2014: Goals & Thangs

Styled Shoot 2012Dec-127
Time needs to seriously take a chill pill and slow the eff down! I mean, wasn’t it January like a minute ago? Gahhh. I can’t believe how fast the time has been flying the past couple of months you guys…but, I digress. Lets talk about the month of love shall we? I am a really big fan of February! Not because of Valentines day or anything. I actually don’t care too much for Valentines day dolls. There, I said it! (I am officially the weirdest wedding planner right?) I feel like we oughta love each other like its valentines all day, everyday. Not just once a year.

But back to my love of February! I love this month because I finally start to see the progress of some of the goals I made in December/January. I wanted to keep things really simple this year. I wanted to focus on more quality time on a few things and less so-so time on a million things. I have made it my priority that there is always time for my husband above everything. Date nights are always a must in my home. Date night is actually my favourite day of the week because it consists of some good food, usually a good movie and cuddling with my juju.

I also make it my mission to have my special time with my family and friends. I know its hard to get everyone together but with a little bit of organization and planning ahead it can happen people! I never realized how much fun it was to just listen to my mother reminisce about the good ol days and watch my brothers play video games. Its the simple things right?! We only get one family dolls and we should always let them know how much they mean to us. Their the ones who love you UNCONDITIONALLY. Your family be making it rain with love yo :P

Last but definitely not least, I really started to stick with maintaining a healthier lifestyle. I changed my diet for the better and slowly but surely I am seeing little changes. Most noticeable, my change of mood. Better food = better mood you guys. I still need to work on getting more physically active and getting to bed earlier and not staring at my phone in bed. Apparently they say (and by they I mean those fancy doctors on Dr. Oz) that you shouldn’t look at your phone, tablet, whatever device while in bed because it really messes up your brain. Even a little bit of that brightness can make your brain feel like your wired making it that much more difficult to get to bed. So going forward this month I am going to work on this nasty little habit of mine.

Those are my little goals that I want to continue to work on till they are no longer considered goals! How about you guys? Have you guys been sticking to your goals? Even if you haven’t stuck to your goals it isn’t too late to start. It’s a brand new month and you can choose to start clean. So come on will ya? xoxo moni
