I don’t want to sound cliche but seems its only appropriate that with the start of a new year, I take the time to reflect upon the previous year.
2013 brought a lot of change and new things for our family.
Our second born son had his first new years and first birthday, we bought a new car, we bought a new house, I had a year maternity leave and made new lifelong friends, hubs got his dream job and best of all, my mom has been cancer free.
There are so many things that I should be grateful for and it only makes me want to be a better person, a better wife and a better mom this year and for the years to come.
I already know I have a lot to work on; Patience. Worry less. Don’t sweat the small stuff.
But I will be the first to admit that I’m an anxious person, and with that comes this overwhelming sense of urgency that everything needs to be a certain way and that I have to please others over myself. I have to learn that what will be will be. Que Sera Sera…
Another thing I learned? The value of friendship. I learned that friendship is a two way street. I learned that no matter how often you see someone, or how often you speak to them, that true friends will ALWAYS be there. Never take for granted who or what you have. Cherish it. Because you can lose it…in an instant.
And finally, there are people close to me who are not feeling that this new year will be anything to celebrate. There are people I know and love fighting for their loved ones or their own lives and I only wish them peace. It is hard, and will be a trying year for them. Life sometimes isn’t fair, and for those people, I wish it were.
And for now, that’s it. Let’s see what 2014 will bring. And to everyone, I hope you have a happy, prosperous, successful and healthy new year.
