I will forever look back on 2012 with fondness. For it brought with it so much joy and love, and truly enriched our lives.
More than anything, I feel that 2012 represented growth.
Physical growth - that saw my body gain with pregnancy, and then lose afterwards. That saw my ‘baby bump’ turn into squishy newborn, and then into a crawling, eating, standing energetic 10 month old.
And, moreso, 2012 represented emotional growth.
My transition to mother of one. From full time office worker, to part-time worker from home. Our transition from couple, to parents.
I learnt about sleeplessness. About caring for a baby. About caring for myself.
I learnt about the importance of family, and reminded how wonderful my family really is.
I learnt more about love than I ever thought possible.
I travelled, I ran, I biked. We attended parties. We had FUN!
So as we find ourselves at the beginning of a new year, it feels so very appropriate to take a look back at the year that was.
So what are my ‘goals’ for 2013. Truthfully, I think they are much the same as last year.
- Be involved
- Be active
- Be adventurous
- Be kind
- Be patient
What about you? What are your goals for 2013?
