2017 is now gone, the familiar saying out with the old and in with the new should be what I am going with but I am?
Last year sucked MAJOR ass!
Everything that could go wrong did go wrong, 2017 was a year that saw big moments in life such as big birthdays, some happy moments but it also had it’s fair share of lows with losing a close person to us all and seeing the New Year in single wasn’t what I had exactly planned.
But as I was once told thing’s in life happen for a reason and you just have to brush yourself off and carry on so I woke up this morning and instead of deciding to be a better me I just thought I would be the old me and just happier.
So what do I focus on then in this brand new year?
First and foremost is being the best daddy I can be, showing them love and teaching them the right way to go through life and try to avoid the mistakes I have made in the past. They will get everything I have and more, attention, time, anything they need to get by and a shoulder to cry on or a well done for the achievements they do in life.
The old me didn’t really care about including myself so I will focus on me, getting better and taking care of myself more. Enjoying life, laughing, taking risks and doing what I want to do and get my Mojo back (if that’s what the kids call it these days)
Old isn’t necessary a bad thing, there are things and lessons that I have taken away from this year like admitting when it’s time to let go no matter how hard it is, it is ok to say sorry and that it doesn’t make you any less of a person, it’s also ok to show emotion, I don’t want my kids thinking they will be look at different if they cry. Laugh more, laughter is they key and opens all doors and finally just be me and enjoy the way I look even if nobody else does!
