Well, I for one am glad to see the back of 2013.
It was a horrible year emotionally for me. If I hadn’t been in therapy due to my course requirements, I would definitely have sought out a therapist.
As it was, my therapist was brilliant and I am so glad I didn’t have to go through tons of therapists before finding one that suits me. I’ve cried, laughed, been challenged and grown in that room and I hope I’m a better person for it…or at least I am more aware of my imperfections and vulnerabilities, but also my strengths.
But of course it wasn’t all bad. There were fantastic times like going to Spain on a real family holiday, just the three of us lying beside a pool, or Roz’s vocabulary explosion that still continues to amaze me, or the fact that Krys and I agree on so many parenting issues that it’s scary at times but I’m so grateful for him making such a big sacrifice for the sake of our child.
I don’t have a whole lot to say about all the hard emotionally bruising things that have happened this year and the doubt that has plagued me because it’s very personal and I’m still sifting through it and trying to make sense of it all in the hopes of finding someway out.
I don’t make resolutions at the start of a year because well, my year only starts at my birthday...hmmm I feel a small déjà vu here…. ah well,
Don’t ask me why the majority of humans are drawn to the negativity in their lives. Perhaps that’s just how we roll or whatever, but we do. I tend to. A lot. Boy can I dwell on the negative! If there were a competition, I’d surely win.
I have decided, like a lot of people I have known virtually on Facebook, to keep a jar of good things that happen to me in 2014. I think it’s a brilliant idea and a surefire way to make this new year’s eve special and to allow myself not to dwell on all the negative things that may happen in 2014.
So for those who have decide to do the same, I wish you well and all the best for a fantastic 2014. May you have enough good things to fill and overflow your jar.
