See you later 2013


This year I have really learned a lot about myself. I've stretched outside of my comfort zone. I've tripped and fallen but despite the mishaps I've grown. I've learned to love how to discover and fly by the seat of my pants! I let go of past feelings and forgave. I made tough decisions. I saw more of the world. I stood in complete reverence for the wonder of this world. I've learned to develop new talents. I've learned to appreciate health, to rejoice and take care of my body. I feel at peace with myself.  But best of all I've learned something new everyday about being a mother. I love my boys with all that I am. I need them, and they need me. I need my husband and he needs me. I am grateful for 2013 and for the lessons, journeys and experiences it brought. Here's to 2014 may it be as good as the last!

I don't like the idea of making resolutions. It sets one up for too many high expectations. That's why I especially love that you've listed your realizations, instead. How wonderful:). Happy New Year to to and your family, and if you're back in Boston, hope you're staying warm! :)
