You’re NOT a Tree!

 

2017 – A new year brings new opportunities, new adventures and the chance to make some new changes in your life. It’s now day two of 2017 (yes I was super lazy yesterday on day one, but had fun hanging out with my kids) and I am thinking of all the things I want to do in the new year.

I want to be more financially stable, I want to spend more time with my kids, I want to excel in my career, I want to build something of my own, I want to be a better mom and wife, I want to be more healthy, I want to create good habits. I’ve been really good at setting goals in the past. I have spent lots of time thinking through them, charting the course but when it comes time to execute (like a lot of moms) I put all of my goals and happiness last and make sure that everyone else is taken care of first. At the end of the year, I look back at my goals that are not attained in frustration.

I had some good ideas, think of how much better off I would be now if I had worked at those goals every day of 2016? Well, not this year! I’m NOT a tree… I don’t like where I am and I am going to move. NO one is going to do it for me and it’s not going to be easy. There will be hard days and even harder days, but that is not going to stop me pushing forward to accomplish some pretty big things for 2017.

One reason people resist change is because they focus on what they have to give up, instead of what they have to gain. This year I am going to focus daily on what I have to gain, financial freedom, extra time with my kiddos (who are growing too fast), personal growth, health, and good habits.

This year, I may be annoying to some, I may have people scratching their head at times, what I’m doing may look strange, nothing like me and something that you might not do in a million years. BUT, I will not worry about what others think (remember my post Don’t Be a Flat Squirrel!) I am going to be unapologetic about pursuing my goals and dreams this year. I’ll keep you updated on my progress because I need accountability, I’ll share my story along the way as I hope it helps you in chasing your dreams for 2017. Today is the beginning of whatever I want, and what I want for myself and my family is going to be BIG for 2017.

On The First Day of Christmas…

day-1-v-2woohoo-img-8

Where do you WooHoo?

Need a fun gift idea for the kids? This gift is the perfect indoor/outdoor gift for younger kids, teenagers or adults! The WooHoo2.o® Outdoor Inflatable Lounger sets up quickly without a pump. It’s ideal for outdoor lounging, camping or fun at the beach. Heck, my kids would set them up in the living room for family movie night!

The inflatable lounger is portable and ultra-light weight, you can carry it anywhere, anytime. It inflates easily without a pump and deflates just as quickly and easily as it inflates (always important) and it has two pockets on the side to hold books and mobile devices (for the older kids of course).

How is WooHoo2.0® different?

USA – Unlike other companies selling outdoor inflatable products, they are located in the USA and have been selling inflatables for over 25 years!

NEW PATENT PENDING DESIGN  Their new WooHoo2.0® is larger and much more comfortable than the traditional canoe shape.

CHARITY – A portion of the profits on every WooHoo2.0® sold goes to their orphan/abandoned children charity at MercyHomes.org which is currently helping over 200 children grow up in a home.

When this item is deflated it fits nicely in its own portable bag. The Outdoor Inflatable Lounger comes in multiple fun colors so your kids (if they’re like mine) don’t fight over whose is whose!
