Well as far as years go I must admit that 2012 didn't really impress me! I think I had a lot of high hopes for 2012 and it just didn't live up to it.....
I am making a promise to myself now that I will make 2013 a much better year! That I will work harder to be incredibly happy and enjoy myself and the world.....
I have already booked myself into some art classes for 2013 which I start in February. I have always wanted to do some art classes and I really do need to do something out of the house that is just for me to enjoy. I am hoping that it will help me find new people to become friends with, which means more adult conversations and company which I am REALLY looking forward to. I am also hoping that I can learn a lot about different art techniques. I would love to learn how to apint and draw as I have always enjoyed it but never really taken much notice of techniques.
I am also hoping to get some swimming lessons for myself and Mr Mikey. I am absolutely petrified of swimming so my goal is to overcome that in 2013. Mikey has had some swimming lessons through school but I would love for him to learn how to be a strong swimmer. So we will be doing that together this year.
Another goal I am setting myself for 2013 is to work better at my 2 businesses. My handmade gifts business, Polkadot Bitz and Piecs and my Boutique Market, Once Upon A Market. I need to work on new ideas, new plans and learn more about business so that I can make them successful.
Then there is my family.
I would really like to spend more quality time with my family and I would like to be a better wife and mummy. (let's just say that I am not the best housewife material, I run from dishes and washing) I would like to get better at running a house and home and I would REALLY like to put more effort in with taking part in the kids schooling and activities. It is very easy to just become lazy and let the teachers deal with it but I truly believe that parents should really get involved in their learning. Keeping up to date with what they are learning and pushing them to be as successful as possible through positive energy and listening.
I know these things don't seem life changing but I really think they will save my life. I think that changes a few things in my life and doing some simple things will make me a much happier person and will make me love myself more.
So here is to 2013.......May it be more aspiring and more eventful than 2012!
