The first week of January i sat myself down pritty much like i do at the beginning of every year; and came up with 10 new years resolutions. I call them resolutions but really they are goals for me to strive for in 2018. Same same really. I won’t bore you with all 10 of them but my main three are;
1) Open up my new business
2) Save money for the future
3) Eat Healthier
Three weeks into the new year and i have started up my new business however been sick on and off has made this somewhat of a challenge. Given that i am a nanny for young children, it is very difficult to carry out day to day duties when feeling unwell. Gotta build up that immune system!!
The second i am yet to begin and the third ‘eat healthier’ i have began by drinking water and only water. First step get rid of soft drinks/drinking redbulls; second limit chip/chocolate and sugar intake. Its a working progress.
January 2018 has been an emotional roller coaster really… so far. In one week i went to both a wedding and a funeral. A celebration of love vs a celebration of life. Whilst the wedding was absolutely beautiful, on a beach and a joyous celebration of two peoples love for one another; the funeral left me feeling flat…
The fact that there was nothing i could say to my best friend who has just lost the love of her life to make things better left me feeling somewhat helpless. Don’t get me wrong she knows i am there for her and thats enough but still… when something like this happens to someone close to you, it’s natural to want to embrace them in a hug, to want to wrap them in cotton wool and never let them go.
What a start to 2018. I think i am just going to take each day as it comes, put one foot in front of the other and live in the NOW. Cause if all else fails, NOW is what we’ve got!!
