So here we are, another end to another year. I felt the need to end my year with a blog post, considering how much the blogging has taken off and meant to me this year! I would like to thank EVERYONE who’s taken the time to read, subscribe, comment, like, and support my blog posts this year!
Today, my social media is full of people describing how their 2015 has been, is ending and their hope0s for 2016.
I can’t look at 2016 and assume its going to be amazing. I can’t do the whole, “New Year New Me” thing either. Because, I will still be the same in 2016. And in all honesty, that terrifies me more than anything else.
I’m still going to wake up most days next year, unsure of how bad or good I’m going to feel, how anxious or down I’ll feel during certain days of the year, how much I’ll worry about things I worried about in 2015! I’ll still dislike how I look, how I act and how I come across to other people.
Just because its a brand new year, its not so easy to become a brand new you, when all the old stuff needs fixing before you can be “new“.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m looking forward to some things not changing!
I have my beautiful children, who continue to spend their years growing, learning, becoming their own little people, making everyone around them happy and not only continuously making their daddy and me proud, but giving me a reason to get up and get on every single day.
I have my amazing husband, who has put up with me for 11 years in March. We’ll be celebrating our 7th wedding anniversary in August, and I continuously ask myself how and why he puts up with me-his fruitcake wife! His support, strength and understanding is overwhelming, and I can’t thank him enough for sticking with me.
As a family, we’ll be celebrating our first year in our beautiful house, and hoping for a little break away for the first time since we had the children.
I don’t want anyone to think I’m not grateful for what I have-because I really am-those things, keep me going.
Yesterday on Twitter, I joined in with the hashtag NewYearsResolutionIn5Words. I chose; Pick.Resolutions.You.Can.Keep.
Far too many people make resolutions then beat themselves up when they don’t manage to keep them!
I’ve made mine this year, they’re not going to be made public, they’re not going on my facebook status, or my twitter feed, they’re going in the back of my new diary-so I can remind myself of the things I would like to achieve through the year.
Mainly, my 2016 is going to be pretty much the same as 2015 was, but my hopes, are to improve how I feel, who I am and end 2016 with a much more positive attitude.
I think that’s a pretty good “resolution” to adhere to.
Once again, thank you for all your support-and I’ll see you in 2016!
Happy New Year!
