Pace Yourself.

Happy, Happy, Joy, Joy it's a New Year. 
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!"

How are you guys doing so far with your resolutions? Has the list already been edited? Cut in half? Holla back.


  1. pacing yourself is always a great idea!! happy new year :)

  2. You are absolutely right! Have a great year ahead!

  3. I agree 100% more quality and less quantity.....Being in the moment is what its all about. Cheers to a wonderful and successful 2013!

  4. I think many are realizing that "Super Woman" doesn't really exist and if she did she's not happy!

  5. I think my list is realistic, so I'm good....so far. I do want to live more, and stress less. I was born with the "worry" jean.

  6. I never make them..if I want to change something, I will but don't wait on the turn of the year to do it. The one thing I do strive for is simply paying off my student loans with any extra money I get. That's something that carries over annually lol


You know we love to hear from you so yes, holla, holla back.
