I’ve always been an optimistic and positive person, and live by the saying, ‘count your blessings, not your sorrows.’ Even in our darkest moments during my pregnancy last year when we didn’t know how or when the complications would end, I took time to remind myself that although what was happening to us was terrible and terrifying, there were people who were much worse off and I still had so much to be thankful for. This year, I’ll be keeping a jar of memories and blessings, which will serve as a physical reminder of all the little things that have brought us joy over the year.
I’m guilty of buying lots of new books and then only reading a handful of them, the rest lying unloved on a shelf. Matt and I have decided to dedicate one night a week to going to bed early to enjoy reading – no technology allowed!
What are your hopes and wishes for 2013?
