New Sentiments for a New Year
My husband and I spent some time after Christmas through New Years with his family in Asheville, NC. On our drive back to Richmond, we talked about 2016. This is a big year for us...maybe the biggest of our lives. In March we become parents to a human being, a daughter.
We're lucky that even though we are very different people with different visions of ideal success and how to achieve it, we always see eye to eye on the importance of living a passionate life. We talked about how to raise a child with passion and enthusiasm vs. one who is just going through the motions.
I'm of the belief that if she comes from us then she'll be perfect in every way...duh. But I think in reality, being a parent is all about leading by example. Which is both easy and hard, but also scary to be watched so closely.
So I'd like to spend this year cultivating an enthusiasm for life to inspire another one's life. It's a big task, and it's one I'll spend the rest of my life doing, but I think it's important to remember now more than ever.
Cheers to 2016...my entry into motherhood...the most important thing I'll ever do.
