Well this is what I started to write in the first few new days of 2017. Time overtook me and i didn’t publish it.
It’s that time of year isn’t it when we start to look back on the events of the last year and think about what changes we are going to make in the brand new sparkling year we are just entering.
Perfect time for me to really start to commit to change.
If I look back over the last year I can’t see any changes for the positive. My parents are still here (thank you thank you , much gratitude) but another year older and less independent.
Work is pretty much the same, in fact if I really think about it it is worse. I have been promised there will be change in 2017, but that is trusting others to make change and I don’t think it will happen. If there is to be real change it must come from me.
What have I achieved at home? Not much, not what I wanted. The extension or conservatory or at very least new kitchen hasn’t happened. The best I think was new stair carpet. Is that really all I have achieved in my home this year?
i did upgrade the car, that was a necessity as the old one became unrepairable. So do I only achieve when I am forced to?
The family? Not much has changed, one son still living at home, can’t see that changing anytime soon. It looks like my daughter is planning on making her trip to Australia into a permanent trip. I have to be happy for her, I’m sure the lifestyle she will lead out there will be so much better than in the UK. (How can it not be, hate the cold and dark winters here). And then there is my son who just does not progress in life, he has too many deamons he is fighting.
So when I look back over 2016 I can’t see much to be patting my back for and saying well done you!
Ok back to today 13/01/2017
Wow how a few days can change things….
My beloved daughter is due to arrive in the UK tomorrow from Australia. I can’t express how happy I will be to just see her.
I so so very nearly gave up on my son. I thank my motherly instincts that I didn’t, and because of that he is now and hopefully , I am forever hopeful, here with us.
That has thrown work problems into perspective.
But, I still haven’t progressed with “my plans” nothing has changed, the days have gone by.
But, my positivity is returning. Spring will soon be here. (Positive thoughts) I will find the time for me and my life plans. This will happen. This is my promise to myself.
