To a positive New Year…

My new year didn’t start too great.

My new year started with a funeral.

My new year started without my dad.

So, while everyone else was celebrating by singing auld lang syne, making resolutions, kick starting their diets and hitting the gym. I was – and still am just trying to get up in the morning and get through my day.

Although, having a toddler helps somewhat with the getting up part – the getting through the day is taking time.

So, I have decided to be easy on myself. I’m forgetting all this ‘tomorrow is the first page of a 365-page book’ and ‘new year, new you’ nonsense and concentrating on what makes me happy… RIGHT NOW.

Taking 2015 one-day-at-a-time.

And, nothing says perfectly what I’m trying to say than these positive prints.

 To a positive New Year…

And, one thing that makes me happy is this – my little blog. The opportunities, experiences and above all the new friendships it has brought into my life (you know who you are). You just may be what keeps me going in 2015. (and Miss M of course!)

Thank You

    Oh B, I feel like i can't say anything that will be of much use to you, & I know your pain is very raw. All I have is this: you will get stronger, & making it through the day will become better, in time. & With friends by your side to pick you up when you are down, we will help you along the way. Sending you all the hugs xx
