be present

If you are new around these parts, my name is Vanessa :)
me, x, mic

I started this little space called X-tremely V almost 3 years ago.
At the time I was thinking of this blog as a diary of sorts, to help me let off some steam, etc.
Three years later and I am still here!
Each day discovering a little bit more about myself and the person I want to be moving forward in life.
I have discovered some great blogs/bloggers along the way, and (even better) made some amazing friends!

What to know more about me?
Click here or just ask! :)
Leave a comment, post a link to your blog (I love discovering new ones), etc.

Speaking of a little more about me....
Today I am talking about my goals for 2016.
As I type this a million different things are racing through my head that I would love to work on, focus on, etc. for this year.

Examples: Making sure I get my 30 minutes of exercise in a day (FYI: I am in such a better mood if I do), Eating smaller portions, but still enjoying some of the foods I love (moderation people!)

But at this time of year, everyone under the sun seems to want to workout more and eat better.
So I have something a bit different that I really want to work towards this year.

I am choosing a simple phrase to focus on in 2016.

" Be Present"
I am talking about being more present in all that I do.
Whether I am at work, writing a blog post, spending QT with Mic, hanging out with X, etc.
I want to be more present in any and all activities I do this year :)

I am sure as the year goes on I will have more goals that I want to work towards, but right now this sounds like a pretty good (and big) one for me :)

Did you choose a word or phrase for 2016?
I would love to hear what your goals are for this year!

Linking up today with Andrea @ Momfessionals for
