New Year Resolution

Another year rolls in, and I am ready for this one – have in fact chosen an achievable but meaningful New Year’s Resolution. To be me. And I will. From now on, I’ll be me. After all holding true to what you value, is something so important to the very essence of who you are, that to achieve this, will be what I will strive for this year.

To stay on target, and not compromise who I am, to be able to say No gently but firmly, when things are too busy. To help and support when I’m needed, and to also know that not everyone needs saving today.

So that’s my New Year’s resolution. Which will be interesting due to the fact I’m entering menopause, and have all the fun of hot flushes and night sweats already happening. So to be me, will require me working out what this new me is, and how I can apply it to my world.

What’s yours?

    I wanted something achievable but meaningful this year – and I reckon the hot flushes and night sweats will teach me a lot about myself this year…..Happy New Year!

    Hi Jac menopause is a great time for deciding to be you. It frees you up as you enter another stage of your life. And hot flushes can be fun! Especially in the middle of winter. Look forward to catching up with you soon, keep knitting and remembering what it is that you want for yourself and your family.

    best wishes

      Hullo Deirdre,

      I have found one bonus, pointed out by a friend also going through this, never having to fight over the quilt again.

      I’ve got to remember that it is a stage, and I just have to learn how to manage the highs and lows……

      Hope to catch up with you soon!

      Take care
