2015 was a great year for TheStonerMom, but things are only getting more awesome!
Hello you! I've been doing those things that people do this time of year. You know, when we drink too much and get too sentimental. We smoke a fat joint and reflect on past goals, former resolutions, the direction of our life, and other awful, painfully adult thoughts.
Part of planning the future involves analyzing the past. I like looking over the prior years and reflecting on what changed, how we grew.
2012 was my manic year of misery, sex, travel, passion, deep depression, painful revelations and falling madly in love. Man. Glad that one's over.
In 2013 I took a leap. I divorced and I remarried and I became a stepmother.
2014 was all about rebirth. The new family, the new house, this new life 2.0. It was blending our children into the silly group of rapscallions we have now.
2015 was about normalizing. In an unremarkable year we find ourselves with a very happy and secure family, a re-poured foundation stronger than the first. Life this year was easy.
2016 is going to be about growth, but mostly, about exceeding expectations.
First and foremost, growing as a mother. Expanding my role. Relishing in the maturing love between my children and I. Focusing on their development.
Second, excelling at love. Loving others, spreading affection, appreciation, acceptance. As I grow older I have less and less time in my life and room in my heart for negativity, complaints, gossip or judgment.
Third, exceeding my expectations online. Huh? That refers to thestonermom.com of course.
I will be quiet for the rest of December. Fine tuning is going on behind the scenes to help prepare for 2016. Here is what is in store:
