Five things I try to take on board

Hello!!! It's been so long, hasn't it! Family life has well and truly taken over this year. I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas break and are looking forward to 2019.

Something a little different on the blog today. I’ve written about Five things I’ve tried to take on board over the years. With a few hiccups along the way, my life hasn’t been perfect, but I wouldn't change it at all. When I look back throughout the years, some of the most stressful times have actually been a blessing in disguise.  I’ve moved away from people who always attract drama, the ones with negative energy and as a result, I have never been better. If you have these people in your life, make sure 2019 is a year you surround yourself with positive energy. 

The first thing to take on board is YOU WILL BE OK! 
Life won’t always be great but you know what, you will be ok. After my miscarriage last year I was very anxious to be pregnant again, but I now have a beautiful baby boy. I know it's not that easy for some and things may not always work out at the time you want it to, but good things do happen, you will be ok. 

Secondly FEAR 
Don’t let fear get in the way, opportunities don’t always come but when they do, they’ve come for a reason and it’s most likely because you’ve attracted this into your life. Embrace it and give it a go, you have nothing to lose. Don't let fear stop you from moving forward and living your life, 'the best things in life are on the other side of fear'. This is something I'm still learning to do fully, I'm going to make sure 2019 is a year I try and step out of my comfort zone. 

Somethings don’t happen overnight, it has felt like we’ve been searching for a house for ages, but it’s funny how things work out when it’s meant to happen. Just believe it will happen, there is no room for negativity in your mind. Same goes for most things, it will happen, be patient, believe and work hard. What will be will be!  

Easier said than done I know. However, stop worrying and stressing about things that haven’t happened, if something has happened, ask yourself if it can be resolved. If it can’t then stop worrying because it’s out of your control. If it can be resolved then what you worrying about? I honestly try not to stress too much, my husband always says I'm too laid back but I've always been like this....like I mentioned before, what will be, will be. 

Try and enjoy life. Laugh and spend time with people who make you feel good. Life is short and there are many beautiful things out there for us to see and learn. Don’t take life too seriously! 

The above is something I can go back and read when I feel I need a little push in the right direction. Not sure what 2019 will hold but this year was mainly focused on my pregnancy and finding a house. I want to concentrate 2019 on career, house stuff, family and friends. I'm excited to see how my baby boy grows up, it's a lovely year ahead for us as a family.

Thank you for reading and I wish you all a Happy New Year!
