Our family has been on the road for six months now.
In this short amount of time, I’ve unexpectedly learned so much about myself and my family. This trip started out as an adventure to see more places, but it has evolved into so many other great benefits. Read more for three goals we have for our family in 2019.
1. Be more flexible; have an open mind
If it’s one thing I’ve learned being on the road it’s to let go and go with the flow. What I mean is if your original plan gets altered for any reason don’t freak out. Things change constantly – keeping an open mind when you’ve made plans that things may change makes life a little bit easier.
2. Live in the moment
I know living in the moment sounds very cliche. I wholeheartedly agree with you, but it’s never been truer to me than it is now. We take life for granted when we’re in our bubble of daily routines. We’ve been fortunate while traveling to slow down time a bit by living more in the moment. Sitting down and playing with our children or going for a bike ride in the middle of the day has made us more grateful for the precious moments.
3. Invest more in ourselves individually
As important as it is to invest in each other as a family, it’s just as important to invest in our own individual skills and talents. For example, my husband is the diver in the family. He wants to work on improving his diving skills. I would like to take a video editing class this year. Our youngest is into singing, why not invest in singing lessons? I think you get the point. We need to grow to be people to be better for each other.
