    I can be just fine on my own (albiet with the standard hiccups) but after living with DH for almost 17 years, I'm alone now and still happy! The first month was rough mentally but I'm still standing! Yeah yeah yeah (sung in Elton John voice) 😃

    2015 has been a tough year.

    -looking back is not helpful and I need to focus on the future.

    -being a solo mum to 3 kids is really really hard work, but that I can do it...just.

    -Sacrafices have to be made sometimes and that's OK.

    - Being more organised makes for a happier and tidier house.

    - that the love and laughter of friends is the best medicine.

    - I need to stop taking on more (community/school) stuff than I can manage

    - 2016 HAS to be better than 2014 and 15...right?

    I have learned who my friends are.
    I have learned to accept that it's ok to be weird. People have always found me strange. I always felt like I couldn't make friends because of my personality, and that contributed to my low self esteem.

    I have learnt that people who you thought were true friends arent and they will gossip behind your back which in turn creates bigger problems so its best to either keep things to yourself or reach out to a stranger(which i have done and she is such a lovely person)

    This year has taught me that I can't fix everything and everyone.
    But I can fix me, and it's time to do that.

    That it's ok to say occasionally say no to those you love.

    That I do have the ability to ask for help, and even though it's hard and awkward it's ok to accept help.

    That if your constantly stepping back to see the big picture you sometimes miss those little moments, that seem irrelevant but make you warm and fuzzy inside.

    Real friends are hard to come by.

    That I don't need to be "liked" all of the time. I can't please everyone 100% of the time, and that's ok!
