There has lots of post in last month or so titled New Year New Me which have made me wonder why do these people have such little respect for the old me? It’s also challenged my sense of self and my respect for the person I was last year.
Yes there are things I would like to change about myself. I have posted here about me desire to be fitter and healthier. As most mothers across the worlds I constantly feel like I’m letting kids down and should do more!
However I am going to choose to focus on the things I done correctly last year, the areas in my live that I grew and the Epic memories of watching my kids grow.
So here are my highlights of 2014:
By far the best thing about 2014 was that my family grew both together and individually. The kids really came into their own last year, developing wicked sense of humour and a keen thirst for knowledge. In developing and nurturing their individual interests we have grown closer as a family as we discovered new things together.
My husband and I both started new jobs which has challenged the day to day running of the household, things got missed but you know what, we survived! Watching Eddie enjoy his new job has been a privilege. He is based from home now so we have settled into a routine which has us working alongside each other and I love it.
As I mentioned I have a new job, I started as the UK manager for resurf.a.stic and I’m now the official distributer for the UK. Big step but I’m loving it. The various facets of this job keep it interesting and challenging. I have met some amazingly supportive women since starting this adventure and I feel empowered by them.
Excuse me whilst I gush for a moment but I cannot carry on without mentioning one person who has has a profound impact on my self worth. As you know I attended Antonia Mariconda’s How to build a beauty blog workshop, little did I know that this would shape the way I view myself. At the workshop Antonia set us the challenge to leave a legacy. Which is where this blog was born. Antonia believes in me and supports my dream to be the best version of myself I can be. I cannot thank her enough for pushing me and telling me that I have a voice and I should use it! Shine Bright!!!
The result is 2014 was the year I found my voice and the courage to use it.
I don’t know what 2015 holds but I do know that I don’t need a new me to enjoy it. The possibilities are endless. As Dr Seuss says ” I have a brain in my head and feet in my shoes!” So bring it on!!!
