I’m sure this is a feeling that many others will be expressing today as we look back on the year that has been, but it really has flown by!
I feel like I entered 2013 still in the cloud of being a new mum – still sleepless and clueless about what had happened to my life 5 and ½ months earlier and while I loved the little being starting to move all around me I didn’t really feel settled and calm – I didn’t feel at all in control (something I am learning I may never feel again!). I can’t say that I have much more of a clue today, 12 months later but I do feel like I am finally starting to get a handle on what is going on and where the road might be heading.
Although, as I say that, I stand on the cusp of 2014 with many changes about to take place. Our family is on the look out for another place to live just as we were starting to really settle in and feel at home here, my little Sweet Pea is going to start 2 days of day care in January – something I have looked forward to and dreaded with equal measure and perhaps the most daunting change of all, my best friend and soul sister will be moving across the country – a fantastic new adventure but oh so very far away…
So I am grabbing on to 2014 with both hands and holding on for the ride – hopeful that I will have some control of what is about to unfold but at the same time, feeling ok if the ride just takes me along with it (kind of!).
Happy New Year!
