I know we are a week in and I wasn’t really going to write a post like this this year but heck I have so much going on in my brain at the moment I hoped writing it all down would give me a clear head.
So 2015 was a tough year, possibly the toughest for me yet. I haven’t written much on the subject because well quite frankly I couldn’t find the words but in a nutshell my relationship with the girls dad broke down and I found myself at 23, a single parent to my three little princesses.
It was scary.
There have been up’s and down’s and lots of me not really knowing what the hell was going on.
9 month’s ago I felt like I let my girls down because I couldn’t keep our family together. I felt stupid for thinking I had my happy ever after. But things change, people change and life moves on.
I feel a lot better now even writing it down helps but 2016 I plan to put it behind me and move forward with a fresh head no more thinking what if’s and how thing’s could have gone differently. Just concentrating on the things that are important to me – my girls, family, friends and building a career for myself.
For that reason I have set a couple of goals – I really don’t like the word resolution and these aren’t things I plan to do just for January or just for 2016 for that matter they are just things I want to make sure I am paying more attention to from this day forward.
- Focus, focus, focus – I have big ambitions in life. I know what I want and I know how to get there but focus is something that I sometimes struggle with. I often find myself being a little distracted by things that aren’t overly important and I waste far too much time and energy worrying about them.
- Adventure – In 2015 one thing I am proud of is being more outgoing, pushing boundaries and over coming anxiety, I flew a helicopter for goodness sake if you had told me that a few years ago I would of laughed at you! 2016 I want more of the same more adventure more laughs and more fun!
- Give a little back – I am incredibly fortunate to live the life I do, with three beautiful healthy children. I will admit I take it for granted at times I want to start giving back, working with charities that mean a lot to me and within the community. icelolly.com have just recently announced the winner of their holiday heroes competition which searched for members of the public that work hard in their communities, volunteer their time, or have overcome certain situations. This really inspired me. I am one for believing you get back what you put in so it’s about time I put some more in!
Do you have any goals for 2016?
