Looking back at 2013

Today is a day for looking back at the year. I have read lots of comments on social media some people have had good years, some bad. Mine well, mine felt complicated. I wouldn’t say it was a bad year, it has been a leap of faith at times, and better at others. It certainly has flown by as I guess all years will do now.

2013 has had its high moments, with an interesting holiday to Disneyland Paris, and some special boy moments, with trophies for fencing. These special moments I try to treasure, as I realise I will never get them back. There have been testing moments like loosing friends orΒ Dad M’s leg, and I am still playing taxi driver but hopefully not for too much longer. All of the moments I can think of in the last year seem to have been for a reason though, one not happening without another.

So I have decided not to look back, but to look forward. I hope that 2014 will bring you all lots of fun family moments, I hope it will bring you opportunities, challenges and lots of smiles. I think I will live by the old saying of what doesn’t break you makes you stronger, and I will be making a jam jar full of my favourite bits so I can look back on 2014 with a smile.

Wherever you choose to spend the last of the old year. here is to 2014, and a Happy New Year to you all.

  1. Nice recap πŸ™‚ I hope 2014 is starting out a you wish it to! You can only live in hope that no great tragedy will strike and that everyone you know or are close to stay happy and healthy. However, it is only in the difficult phases of life that we truly test our mettle and usually find the sort of inner strength we never knew we had. My mantra is to live each day as it comes, to move on from things past which I cannot change, to see the present as open to fresh opportunities, and to think positively and hopefully about a bright tomorrow.
