After all the celebrations, I feel I am getting back to normal if there is such thing especially at 35 weeks pregnant.
I was thinking about all the things I want to do and achieve in this 2020, making my New Year’s Resolutions, and I couldn’t stop thinking about all the things I have done. I have to say I have had a pretty nice life. Not to brag, on the contrary, with a strong sense of humbleness and thankfulness. I had been lucky enough to fulfil some wishes already such as travelling. In a rough count, I realised I have been in 37 cities. Thankfully, more than half of them in my beautiful country, Mexico. Every place has been special and magical. Of course, I would love to be able to visit more places and discover experiences. I am a bit greedy.
I have a loving husband. A relationship that I never thought I would have. I had very bad experiences in the past so even if I was keen on finding a partner who was respectful and encouraging, I didn’t have my hopes up. It turns out we will be celebrating our 10th anniversary this year.
After many years of frustration and sadness, we managed to have a lovely son and another baby on the way. Who would have thought that! Family is a very important concept for mee and I always wanted one of my own. I am chuffed as to how my family is growing and developing. I can’t wait to meet the new member.
Of course, work was always an important aspect of my life. At this point in my life, it is right where it should be. I suppose we always want more and better. But in all fairness, I have a part-time job that I enjoy and brings me happiness and satisfaction, I am self-employed eCommerce specialist and I have started my own online Zero Waste Shop to join two of my interests. I am still involved in topics that interest me as a Brownie leader, member of the Next Chapter and board member of the Magherafelt Women’s group. So I keep busy and entertained. No complaints at all.
I think the best resolution I could have for this year is continuing doing what has been working and I have been enjoying along with taking the time to enjoy my new bundle of joy.
Maybe if we appreciated more what we have instead of focusing on what we don’t we all could have happier lives. I am not suggesting we shouldn’t look for more/better but keeping in mind what has worked well so far.
Have a fantastic New Year. Enjoy every bit of it.
