2020 has been a really hard year, but I wanted to put a positive spin on it. I thought I would share four things I am grateful in 2020, as there is always light even in the darkest of times.
Having my little Baby Boy
I gave birth to my beautiful baby boy back in May has been one of the things that kept me going. Don’t get me wrong it has been a real struggle at times, but being able to slow down has really help me to treasure all those amazing moments.
Weirdly I’ve spoken to my family more last year and any other year. Technology has been a lifesaver, enabling us to talk and see loved ones, easing the pain of not physically being able to see them. Slowing down has also made me realise how we need to take more time for our family and friends. Sometime even just a 10-minute phone call a week, it makes a world of difference.
How Strong I am
We are so much stronger than we think! Mentally 2020 has been difficult and some days I’ve just had to tell myself tomorrow is a new day. You can make it! We have all had dark days but you will be ok and get through it. My husband has been my greatest supporter this year and I’m so thankful for that. I know our lives will eventually get back to some sort of normal but for now, we’ve make a new normal for our little family.
You have to be selfish and take some me time! I’ve been trying to do more of this, even if that’s just making a cup of tea and watching a Youtube video. It’s a much-needed way of mentally resetting and taking a quick break. With my husband currently working for home, it makes it easier to take a quick 5 mins for me.
I’d love to know what you are grateful for in 2020 and what you are looking forward to in 2021?
