It’s been a long while since I’ve had my lovely husband take over the blog in the form of this little series called An Interview With My Husband. I first started this series a few months back and had such a great time asking my husband all sorts of questions just to pick his brain because he’s always had an interesting, and different, way of looking at the world. So, in essence of the new year and fresh starts, here’s my husband and our interview about 2015 and looking ahead to what’s in store for 2016!
1. Are you a goal setter or have any resolutions for this upcoming year? If so, what are they for 2016? If not, is there something you’re looking to challenge yourself with this year? A milestone you’re looking to make?
I’ve never been one for resolutions although I’m always a proponent of change. I just believe that if you feel you want to make a change in your life, just do it. No timelines, just start working to change yourself. That being said, I know the challenges of 2016 will present themselves gradually starting with our little rugrat on the way. He will challenge me and he will be my milestone 🙂 No need to seek more challenges that those that will inevitably find me.
2. What are you most looking forward to in 2016?
Our growing family 🙂 The culmination of my being is about to come to fruition in just a few months and all I’ve ever done previously will cease to matter since he will be my (our) future.
3. How have you evolved over the last year? This could be personally, professionally, etc.
I’d like to say that I have an answer for this. It’s difficult for me to hone in on my own evolution since I’ve been consistently looking forward, but now that I reflect, it’s all been personal. I’ve hit that point in my life that I had always heard about, but never thought would happen to me. I’m coming to terms with my own mortality and have become increasingly fearful of the safety of those around me. I was untouchable for so many years and now I am the furthest from my mind. I figure that this happens to all adults, but I’ve never felt like an adult until recently (past 3 years or so).
4. What does New Years mean to you? Is it more than champagne and counting down to midnight?
Truth be told, it doesn’t really mean anything to me. I’m glad it’s a day that I don’t have to work and it’s perfectly acceptable to drink too much, but I don’t really use the calendar to set my own milestones. I can certainly appreciate those that do, and you’d be the first to say that I live by the calendar to accomplish my own tasks, but in the span of a lifetime, I don’t really give it much attention.
5. In one word, how would you describe 2015? Why?
Comforting; It was a good year and I can honestly say that nothing negative happened but so many great things did. It was a comforting year and I hope we can keep it up as life progressively speeds up.
