No matter what time of year it is, setting goals for personal growth and success is never a bad idea. Joanna Gaines paused amid the hubbub of the holidays—and celebrating with all her babies—to share the challenge she's setting for herself in 2019. It's a powerful reminder to make the most of the time we have.
"It's always been my nature to reflect on the past and linger there a while," Jo wrote on , mentioning some major milestones with her baby Crew, and her teenaged son Drake. "This whole time thing can feel like a thief if you let it," she said, and because of that, she's attempting to slow it all down.
"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...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."
As she and Chip get ready to return to TV and maaaaybe start preparing for baby number six, time is everything—especially when there are five children involved, a Magnolia empire, new Target home collections, and more. You never know what's next.
