Well it's been a year since I last posted on this blog and my how time has flown. So much has changed. 2012 was most certainly the year for change and the year that I decided to start paying myself some attention. I wanted to give myself a break from blogging but I never thought i'd stay away for this long. I was going to start blogging again in the new year but I felt like I wanted to write. Reflect on the year that was and share some of my stories but I really don't know where to start. My boys have grown up so much this last year and I can honestly say that i'm a different person, a changed person. My new years resolution last year was to change my life. Sounds very broad but I really have changed my life. Not only am I now a healthier and happier person but I can truly say I never want to go back to the person I used to be. My attitude towards life has changed completely. Not just have I changed physically but I feel like i've truly found myself this year. I've done a lot of soul searching and reflecting on my 32 years on this earth and re-evaluated everything. But the best part is I have realised that you need to embrace change and never stop changing and re-evaluating your life. It's so easy to get caught in the rut of life and all that it entails. So easily we become stagnant and take things for granted. The last two years of pain, heartache and confusion has been worth every bit of the blood, sweat and tears so that I can finally feel gratitude. I am grateful for my life. Grateful for my gorgeous boys, grateful for my amazing family and beautiful friends. Grateful for the things I have, even though they are merely that, things. I am grateful for my health and to be pain free. I am grateful to wake up every morning and have all that I could want in life and be satisfied with the small things. Because in the big scheme of things it's the small things that count most. Cooper is 6 1/2 now and just finished year 1. I can't believe my first born is going in to year 2 next year. Surely i'm not old enough to have a grade 2'er. He's had the most amazing year of school. He did so well with all his reports and had the lovliest teacher i've ever come across. We love Miss Hall and she certainly has a soft spot for my gorgeous boy. My big boy is turning in to such a delight. He's so kind and loving and so enthusiastic for life. He's the best big brother and most adorable little friend. I'm so proud of him.
