Here it is. The start of a brand new year when expectations are high and disappointments seem so far away or even impossible. When new beginnings can mean everything and anything and certainly have no place for failure. When day one is exciting with a new mind embracing new challenges. What will you do in 2019?
I’ll be honest I’m glad to see the back of 2017. In a year when I should have been ecstatic at the fact that our baby was born without any issues, I was a mess. There’s no nicer way to say it really. I struggled for months with postnatal anxiety and I’m still not over the final hurdle. There are days that are tough but I’m managing a million times better than I was a few months ago. Even so, I’m starting this year with a particular mindframe that is going to keep me balanced and in control. I’m finding the positive again and I’m living to my full potential. Or at least trying.
First off, a massive Merry Christmas to you all and a Happy New Year. This is my last post before Christmas on Over Heaven’s Hill as I have decided to take a well deserved break away from all things Blog including Social Media over the Holidays. In my six months of blogging, this is the first holiday I’ve given myself and I’ll be honest I need it to refresh and regroup. It’s been an exhausting Winter, but I’m really looking forward to settling down with some good movies, a box of roses and my family over the next couple of weeks. I wish every single one of you a very Merry Christmas and I hope you all make some beautiful memories this season.
