Joanna Gaines Revealed The New Year’s Resolution That We Can All Get Down With

If you’ve logged onto your social media accounts since the new year begin (that champagne cheers wasn’t going to boomerang itself, after all), you’ve most likely noticed your favorite personality reveal what they hope to achieve in 2019. Many wrote of general health and happiness, but Joanna Gaines went a step further to tackle a challenge we all struggle with: living in the moment.

In Gaines’s latest Instagram post, she talks about how she’s constantly afraid of time flying by much too fast, with her newborn son already six months old and her oldest going off to college soon. However, this realization has helped Gaines formulate her 2019 resolution, which is to live for now.

It’s always been my nature to reflect on the past and linger there a while. I find myself thinking about what I will miss and how life is just moving too fast. I mean Crew is already six months old and saying “mama” (I had to throw that in there, sorry Chip). Drake will be driving in two years and off to college in four. And just like that I have found myself mourning the past but now in future tense. You see what I just did there? This whole time thing can feel like a thief if you let it. I’m challenging myself in this new year to live for now. The present. Taking in every breath, every sight, and sound and holding it dearly. Not thinking about how the good ol’ days have passed us by or how the best is yet to come. But that right now, this very second, this is the gift. These are the days. These are the moments. And I’m gonna breathe them all in. If there’s pain and sorrow, or happiness and hope, let it in and then let it out. I want to enjoy the now because it’s the only thing we can actually embrace. I want to hold it carefully. Hold it thoughtfully. I want to rid myself of the little distractions because I have found that these are the thieves that steal our moments and rob our days. But time, time is our most precious gift. Here’s to seeing and finding the beauty, the hope and joy in the right now in 2019. And for goodness sake, let’s have some fun while we’re at it! It’s going to be a happy new year indeed. Believing that for all of us. #wonderinthenow #thesearethedays

Her caption reads, “Taking in every breath, every sight, and sound and holding it dearly. Not thinking about how the good ol’ days have passed us by or how the best is yet to come. But that right now, this very second, this is a gift. These are the days. These are the moments. And I’m gonna breathe them all in.”

It’s true that the Magnolia Market owner had a memorable 2018 with husband and business partner Chip, with the announcement of their new TV network and birth of their son Crew. Plus, Gaines embarked on a few business ventures of her own, like releasing her new book “Homebody.”

But as Gaines admitted in her post, she is not going to let these accomplishments distract her from looking forward to the good in the New Year. “Here’s to seeing and finding the beauty, the hope and joy in the right now in 2019. And for goodness sake, let’s have some fun while we’re at it! It’s going to be a happy new year indeed. Believing that for all of us.”

Cheers to that, Joanna!
