In the meantime let me catch up!
Day One: What surprised you this year and what gift did you find in that surprise?
It surprised me the chnage my daughter brought to our family. Although I knew the dynamics would be changed once she arrived, I somehow didn’t realise to what extent that was. We had a few false starts and challenging months but it was a lovely surprise at the same time. Her smiles, laughs and love simply makes our family more wholesome.
Day Two: What goals did you realize this year?
I guess I have 2 kind of goals.
The first one is finally getting to start my breastfeeding counselor course. I’ve been wanting to do something like this since the birth of my son nearly 3 years ago but always found excuses not to do it- mainly financial. Since September I have been slowly unfolding this course and I am so happy to have done so.
The second goes hand in hand with the first one. Been wishing to create a community of moms in our village. After again 3 years it is finally getting there. Possibly it will be a success sometime next year.
Day Three: What Did You Learn About Yourself This Year?
I learnt a lot about my shortcomings. This has led to me striving to be better. Although its very slow progress I can see myself different and feel different inside out. I have finally understood more what Attachment Parenting means and can finally be more true to its origins. I have found back my Spirituality and that has given me a grounding for me and my family. I have found a few default settings in my brain system that I am trying to reboot so that communication with my husband is better. Its been a year full of personal growth actually and all is intertwined.
