Firstly I just want to say Happy New Year to all my followers and readers. I hope you all had a great Christmas and managed to spend time with your loved ones making memories that you will treasure for a lifetime.We were lucky enough over the festive period to spend time with our nearest and dearest and we had such a giggle with our friends and family.
I have gone into this year with some plans and ideas of what I would like to achieve not only for myself but for my family too. I have to say though these aren’t new year resolutions though, because I am the first to admit, I literally fail within the first few days. I’m sure the majority of the general population have the same resolution’s, whether that be to lose weight, get fitter, make more time for friends and family, save for that dream holiday etc. Now while some of these do fall into part of my ideas its not because its the new year, its just that I seem to have a clearer head on what I want to focus on. I am feeling more confident in being able to succeed at whatever I put my mind to, I feel more in control of what needs to be done, I am not afraid of going after what I want. I am also not scared of the possibility that I may fail at some of the plans, that I may have some setbacks along the way, the scenic route could be the road to succeeding, but there is something that I am sure of and that is, I will get there no matter what.
This new found sense of confidence, drive and determination has literally come from nowhere, it really is out of the blue. I really am enjoying it though, I am sleeping better, have a spring in my step, less stroppy and agitated at the girls and just a general feeling of being happy. Now that all might sound really strange but if you have been following my blog since the beginning then you will know how much I have struggled with depression and anxiety, how I during the winter months can be quite down in the dumps and quite a negative person. I’m not saying that all of this is going to last but I am hoping that I can at least grab it by the horns and just run with it for as long as possible. It is such an overwhelming feeling at times, a feeling that im not too comfortable with for a few seconds, then I give my head a wobble and carry on my day. I think to myself how lucky I am to have air in my lungs, a family, a select few really great friends and that I just need to go with the flow.
I really feel like 2018 is full of amazing opportunities for myself and my family and that we are going to make some truly magical memories with the people who mean the most to us. I saw a quote that said “Shoot for the moon, even if you miss, you will land among the stars” and that sat in my mind, it made me think about how far I can push myself, because even if I don’t achieve exactly what I set out to do, I will still achieve something, which is far better than me just sitting on my backside wondering what might of happened. I am ready for 2018 to bring at me whatever it has to offer, whether good or bad!
I would really like to hear what your plans are during 2018, if you have a new found sense of confidence, any ideas on why maybe I have my new confidence and determination? Let me know and I hope that 2018 brings you all that you hope for.
