I am sure there will be many who will use this time of year to reflect on their year and their past whilst they’re trying to move forward into the New Year.
I can’t say I’ll be sorry to see this year go. As far as my own thoughts are concerned, where I have clarity and understanding about my life, I still need to convince myself on both. Those fleeting thoughts tend to come and go.
My thoughts go to my brain damage as a baby, school and opportunities missed to help me with my difficulties and I’m struggling to move on. And although my children are fulfilling their own dreams of furthering their education through university and travel, their success reinforces my own struggles.
Then I constantly remind myself that since those days I have achieved so much more and that if I had have gone down the mainstream education path, I probably wouldn’t be running my own website now. My life has moved on in other ways.
An opportunity arose that allowed me to get myself to this place, and that opportunity has definitely paid off. Now I will continue to work on myself, telling me it’s okay.
Have a Happy New Year everyone.
