New Year’s Eve is here! I can’t believe how fast this year has flown by. At the end of the year instead of making New Year’s resolutions, I like to reflect on the past year and create positive affirmations for the new year. Positive affirmation, is starting the new year with positive energy, and if you are a fan of the book, ‘The Secret’, you know what I mean.
Reflection on the past year
In the beginning of 2017, I focused all my energy on being the best of me, at work, as a mother and in life. Halfway throughout the year I realized that this is a big ask and I had to reprioritize. I had to slow down and take some breaks. I realized that to be the best of me I had to refocus my energy on what was the most important to me: Zara, my mental health and my family.
Regardless I do feel that 2017 has been very good to me. One of the biggest highlights for me was sharing this blog with everyone. I was not sure what to expect and literally had butterflies when I hit the share button on January 1st 2017. The response over the year has been very positive and I have learnt so much ( with so much more to learn!). To be selected as one of the Top 30 Vancouver Mom bloggers for 2017 was the cherry on top! It is an honor to be part of such a talented group of ladies. These mommas are humble, creative and supportive, and I am constantly learning from them. I am in awe to belong to this momma tribe.
So where do I go from here…
I don’t have a straight forward answer for this. I am going to continue writing and hopefully will partner with other bloggers and brands.
My positive affirmations for 2018 is to focus on opening my mind and to learn:
I will learn from my talented momma blogger friends.
I will learn from reading and practicing.
I will learn to take better pictures (hubby just gifted me a camera for Christmas! ).
I will learn who I am, and who I want to be. It is easy to hide behind social media and pretend to have a perfect life, but that’s not me and that’s not my blog.
I will not let self doubt creep in and stop me from learning and growing.
I want to thank everyone that is following me on this journey, because without your support I wouldn’t be here. What are your positive affirmations for 2018?
Also, what would you like to see more of on the blog? More recipes? More family friendly activities/venues? Tips? Letters? I would love to hear from you.
Happy New Year and see you in 2018!
