New year, same me.

So this year I've decided not to make any BIG changes. I know myself that if I make resolutions, within a few weeks it'll all be down the drain and ill be back to where i started.

I'm pretty happy with myself at the moment. I mean I need to lose a few stone but I know that and that isn't just going to happen because there is suddenly a different number at the end of the date.

What I mean is that I'm in a good place mentally right now. This time last year was a lot different, I was just coming to the end of my post natal anxiety and I worried so much about what people thought of me, if people liked me and if people would judge me for my parenting styles. I know that I don't quite do things the conventional way, what with bed sharing an extended breastfeeding, but I'm now at peace that I know I am doing best for our little family.

 Another thing I've learnt this year is not to be so judgey myself. I am ashamed to admit that I used to bitch about people a lot. About what they wore, what they did and how they acted. This year I have really learnt to appreciate that what works for one person doesn't always work for another and that everyone has the right to be the person that they want to be, not what society says they should be.

Life isn't always instagram perfect and just because people choose to showcase only the positive aspects of their lives on social media doesn't mean its all good behind closed doors. I really have learnt to think about the fact that everyone has their own shit going on and we just don't know what they are actually dealing with.

So yeah, no resolutions for me this year. I just plan on trying to continue to grow as a person, (not physically- I plan to shrink physically) have as much fun and make as many memories as humanly possible.

Happy new year to you all! I hope 2019 brings everyone a whole load of happiness.
