This time last year was…interesting, and not in a good way.
I was not in a good place. I had lost any sense of control and desire to be a good wife and mother.
I spent New Year on my own and had to make a decision to turn things around. So one year on, and what a difference a year makes.
Another new job into a bigger role, I’ve spent more time with my family this year and made some incredible friends. I’ve even repaired multiple bad relationships from over the past year too.
Its been a steep learning curve on both a personal and professional level.
Professionally taking on a bigger job usually means that your personal life suffers. I’ve fought hard for that not to happen, to find a balance to fit my family.
Of course I have my good days, and then my bad days where I struggle to get out of bed or to find a positive thing to focus on. But I get through it, go to bed, wake up and try again the next day.
Life’s different now. It’s a challenge…but a good one.
What a journey I’ve been on this year. And not just me, all my family and friends that have stuck with me.
I’m not one for resolutions and I’m making no exceptions this year. Maybe it’s the anxiety of thinking that far ahead. The impossible task of wanting to work out and think where you will be this time next year.
It’s impossible…the past 2 New Years have taught me that. I would never have thought the years’ would have taken me on such a journey.
That’s why I choose to only keep looking forward a day or a week at a time.
To only concern myself with doing things that make my family and I happy.
We want to go on a couple of holidays as a family; but also to travel the country to some different cities for weekend breaks just hubby and I.
I want to keep my passion and enthusiasm for fitness and healthy eating.
I want to spend as much time at weekends or my days off with the little monkey.
We also need to make as much time as possible to see our families, so monkey can have fun with his grandparents. Then there’s friends to see and nights out to plan…
Professionally? Well I just want to keep on going full steam ahead and continue to make a positive impact in the business I work.
See? I don’t want to do anything different in 2018. Just have fun, work hard and keep soldiering on.
So thank you to you all. Thanks to my readers for following my blog, my family for having to put up with me and my friends for choosing to put up with me.
So Happy New Year everyone! Do what you need to do, and be happy in 2018!
