2017 a year full of a rollercoaster coaster of emotions. A year of so many firsts, The year my daughter was born but also the first year without my mum. This year has been a bit of a blur to be honest and it's also gone so quickly. Even being pregnant went so so fast for me which I suppose is a blessing in some people's eyes. Although my year has been so happy it has also been tainted with the loss of mum, it is not something you just get over and for a lot of people it can be difficult to understand why you don't completely move on, but then if you haven't experienced grief you are not to know. In 2017 I learnt to love my life and everything in it. I have what I have, and as I've said before I am so grateful for that. I write this with a smile on my face knowing I have so much to look forward to. People say not to look back or live in the past, mine are full of yes sad reminders but beautiful memory's that I wish to remember forever. I know 2017 has been so hard for some of my friends too and I wish them a happier 2018. This year I also started my blog ! I am really enjoying doing this and can't wait to continue throughout next year.
I am so looking forward to 2018 , I know they will be full of firsts for my little Emelia and new memory's being made. It's definitely going to be a busy year starting off with Emelia's christening in the first week of January, and also juggling the baby work , life balance.
My resolution for being more organised last year has definitely been put to good use! I write a lot of lists ! But it works well for me , I will definitely carry on list writing ! I have even got a diary for this year.. I know !! The reason I made the resolution last year was because of being pregnant and I knew I wanted to get myself organised for baby, also with all the midwife and hospital appointments I had I knew it was essential. It sounds funny but for someone who naturally hates not knowing what they're doing, but who finds organisational skills tricky ,teaching myself to be more organised has been invaluable and beyond helpful.
I have to say I think at aged 25 I have learnt more about myself than I ever have , I know myself better than I ever have (no motherhood hasn't given me superpowers) I just think going through a lot has made me see so many different sides of myself , not all good.
I have quite a few resolutions (well goals) for the new year that hopefully will be reflected throughout my year.
I wish all of you ,my family and friends a happy new year and best wishes for 2018. Keep powering on!
