Happy 2013 to you!! It’s time to get back into it after a lovely break. My hubby also had a few well deserved weeks off and we squeezed in a mini getaway with the kids which was lovely. Ventured not that far from home but as long as it’s with the ones you love and everyone gets a chance to do something they want to on the holiday, and you get a chance to relax, I don’t think it matters where you go. Sometimes the best holidays are in your own backyards that you never get a chance to explore.
Last Monday the two of us went out for lunch for Mr M’s birthday and we just sat in a restaurant and ate, talked and relaxed for two and a half hours. Not feeling we have to rush back for the kids. Why has it been so long since we felt this? And why is life such a rush that you don’t get the chance. We need to make the time to sit and relax and be in each others great company!
So it started me thinking about “Resolutions” for this new year.
In 2013 I plan to….Have more fun. Seize opportunities. Take a few risks. Step out of my comfort zone. Challenge myself. Relax. Take more time to just be. Live in the moment. Disconnect devices, Connect to people. Breathe. Play more with the kids. Laugh loud. Be totally silly sometimes and did I mention Have Fun!
It is sounding a little all about me now I read back, but as a Mum lets face it you work 24/7. I wouldn’t swap being a Mum for anything though. It can be hard at times but what you put in you get back times ten. Sweet little kisses, big hugs, cheeky smiles and squeals of delight are what I live for. By taking some time for yourself to do what makes you happy, that happiness flows onto those around you. Gaining that time however can be a different story.
