My hats off to everyone who made an exhaustive list of things to accomplish this year. God speed ahead.
While I set a laundry list of goals for the business each year, this year my single goal for my personal life is this: to pace myself.
Here's the thing, 2012 was banner year for Nicole White Designs and an amazing year in which I continued to savor the joys of being a relatively newlywed, and a new mom. And while I love transforming peoples homes and lives with great design, I sometimes took on way more than I could handle and in the process suffered some major burnout. To wit, I plan to take on fewer projects this year and simply say no to those projects that smell like trouble from a mile away. Wish me luck.
The extra time and mental health bonus means I can spend more time with the hubs, and cherish more of the incredible moments with the little man who is now pretty fluent at saying, "Uh, Oh!"
