The very wonderful Kate on Thin Ice has got me thinking about getting my groove back. So far this year things are looking up for us. (You can read about that here) Kates post has made me think about the things I want for me. Obviously, I am over the moon about recent events but they are going to benefit us as a whole. Selfishly, I want to focus a little more on me this year and escape the Cinderella syndrome that I seem to have developed. Where better to share my thoughts and progress than with all the other Groovy Mums!
Where am I now?
At the moment, I am fighting off the evil grips of Anxiety. I have become badly run down over the past few months and unfortunately nauseating panic has become a part of daily life again. Having got to the point that I couldn't cope anymore, I am now on my way back up. It will take time and I am trying really hard not to push myself past my current capabilities.
During 2013 it felt as if we were all living in the same house but not interacting with each other. Somehow we have all become disconnected and I would really like to change that. I'd like us to all be on the same page again instead of feeling like we haven't seen each other for days!
I would also like everyone to get involved with keeping the house. I don't see why I should be a maid to all. I have hopes and dreams too. Just because I got married and had children doesn't mean I don't want anything else for my life. Far from it, I want to have a go at everything!!
I think I fell into the trap of the stereotypical wife. I felt that it was my job to keep the house, shop, taxi children etc etc whilst smiling and loving every minute... Epic FAIL!
If I have learnt anything it's that I am not a faker. I can't pretend for love nor money. So this little wifey is burning her apron, sticking up the rota and is off to find some new adventures!
Where am I going?
Now that is a massive question. My immediate answer is everywhere!! There are so many things I want to achieve this year but as I said earlier I need to try and limit myself to what I am currently capable of. So, for this week I am aiming to walk my smelly old dog every day as we could both do with some fresh air. I would also like to take some more photos. I love photography but with everything else going on I haven't taken any for ages.
I'll see you next week with some Groovy pics to share!
