a word for 2019

I am awful at New Year's Resolutions. Like, truly awful. I usually try and think of a word to focus on each year. I can do better just focusing on one word. This year, my word is growth

This is what I want to focus on in 2019. 

I want to grow in many areas, but one huge area that I will continue to pour into is my little travel business. This was something I started doing halfway through 2017 and I was thinking it would be a small side hustle. Something to help pay for the Disney trips our own family wanted to take. This little side business has become a huge passion of mine in the last 18 months. This year I will really focus on my business -- growing my business and growing as a travel agent. It has been so important for me to have my own thing. To watch it grow as I put in the work. To help our family financially. To know that I am helping other families and playing a small role in the memories they make. It's a huge bonus that I LOVE my agency and I LOVE what I do. As cheesy as it sounds, it really lit a fire in me that I didn't know existed. 

After being a stay at home mom with 3 very young kids, I felt like I had kind of lost that part of myself. My word of advice to all the moms who even slightly feel that way: find something for yourself. It can be anything, but find something that brings you joy, challenges you, and helps you grow as a person. 

I am so thankful I found something that does all of that! Here is to a joyful, fun, & prosperous 2019!
