Social media is abuzz with posts, tweets, instas, and snaps filled with positivity and plans for 2017. It’s really nice actually to spend the morning with so much positivity. This year, I’m not setting any resolutions or goals. Instead I set an intention, a mantra, for me to repeat to myself throughout 2017.


This is going to be another busy year. I am taking classes through the summer to power through and graduate with my Education degree in December 2017. It’s going to be hard, it’s going to be draining, and I am going to handle it better than I did in 2016.

This is the year I keep to a budget, manage my homework load, stick to a workout schedule, work part time, and manage my household without losing my mind. I’ll do all this by repeating this mantra, staying in a positive mindset, not stressing so much over all my homework, careful planning, and emotional support from the hubs.

And to kick off 2017 on a good note- I signed up for the 2017 Banff Half Marathon in June. This will help motivate me to train, and give Ryan and I a fun summer weekend getaway.

What are your New Years Resolutions?

Do you have a mantra for 2017?
