Hello 2018, nice to meet you.
I know your going to be a tough one, it isn’t going to be an easy ride and I can’t prepare myself or my family for what is to come.
One of my goals for 2018 is to try and put myself first more often, be it when buying the shopping getting the meal I really fancy even though it might not be Ads favourite or going out for a long walk by myself once he gets home from work if its been a tough day, or even grabbing a bite to eat with my sister.
I’m hoping that this will then help to keep my mind set straight as much as possible and that when it does start to fault I will know sooner and be able to reach out for the support I need before it gets really bad again.
Another thing I want to work on which is something I have always been useless at and I have asked Ad to work on too is talking about emotions.
We have so much going on and I think it is really important that we try to be as open as possible with each other about everything. How we feel, what’s upset us, when we need a break, if we just want to cry, no matter what it is we need to be open with each other.
Otherwise we wont make it through this.
To keep me smiling and to help find something positive in everyday even when its been the roughest day I started a little hashtag #inspirehappiness365.
I plan to do one post a day on Instagram for 365 days of the thing that made me happy and smile. This will help me to look for the positive in the rough and also remind me to post on Instagram at least once a day.
Your more than welcome to join in if you would like!
I hope you have a fantastic 2018 and you have set attainable goals rather than pie in the sky ones!
