Whilst reflecting on the past can be both nostalgic and sad, it is important to look forward - we can't change what once was, only what may yet to be. For me, I have set personal and professional goals that I will strive to achieve; yes, there will always be obstacles, but if we accept them as challenges and as an opportunity for growth - a learning curve - then this can only be a positive experience in the long term, even if it's excruciatingly annoying at the time!
I have already started this year with a long 'to do' list! However, I will now refine it and prioritise what is truly important to me first - my son's birthday preparations being right at the top!
Take care of yourself, because if we don't look after ourselves, we can't be at our best for anyone else - it's like running a car on an empty fuel tank.
Lastly, watch this space for my new book, 'Re-awakened' - not quite ready yet, but hopefully not too long either!
