2019 One Little Word - INTENTIONAL || Orange County Photography

Happy 2019!

Seems unreal that another year has come and gone. Another year of baby’s born, birthdays, vacations, family memories and growth. Another year. Why does time go faster as we age? It doesn't seem fair. When were younger, time goes so slow and as we age and really start to enjoy our time, it goes faster. One of life’s greatest conundrums.

Each year I choose ONE LITTLE WORD to remind me about my goals. Last year my word was GROWTH. I grew a child, we grew our home, I grew relationships, my business grew, I had quite the year of growth.

This year it’s INTENTIONAL. I want to be more intentional about my time. My time at work. My time with kids. My time with my hubby. My time for me. Its so easy to get trapped in the social media phone zone and loose precious hours in a day, by habit alone. So I started off the New Year by deleting the Instagram app from my phone. What an eye opening experience. I was seriously addicted.

While the app is back on my phone now, it still holds a different place. I don’t crave it. I don’t reach for it first thing in the morning. I don’t have a habit.

Now I have set times that are scheduled into my day for social media and it’s truly work rather than random scrolling! Now I focus on my own babies instead of watching strangers with theirs. I have to choose to make this my priority because we all know how easy it is to get caught up in it again.
