I love the beginning of a new year. It always feels like a second chance, a new beginning. The next twelve months are blank, completely unwritten, just waiting to be filled in. It gets me all excited, so much promise.
I won’t start any new years resolutions this year. They never seem to stick past the first week…so this year I will just have a theme. 2011 is the year of Mama C and Baby K. If it’s not something that benefits our lives or well-being, then we simply do not need it.
Being a Mother is a tough job. Even at this early age, I feel like the filter of all things. But how can I filter things for her, if I cannot also filter my life. It’s all about what is healthy for us this year, physically, emotionally, financially, you name it.
When I learned of the affair and my marriage began to crumble, I immediately panicked. I felt that I would never date again, no one would ever want me and I would never re-marry. Since that time I have had numerous guys approach me and ask for my number. Now, I will say that most of them aren’t worth writing home about, it did give me a bit of confidence. Since my separation, I found out quickly that I am not ready to date and not even interested in dating. For now, I want to focus on my beautiful, wonderful daughter and me. I want to focus on improving all aspects of our lives. 2011 – The year that I will create and discover a new me, the year that I make improvements to help both Baby K and me.
Wishing you all the best in 2011,
