Dreams and Hopes


I hope you have all had a fabulous 2012. I for one have had a blast, learnt so much, grown in ways I never thought possible and had so many of my hopes come true that I have nothing left to do but smile.

I have even bigger hopes and dreams for 2013 and have no doubt I will be smiling twice as big this time next year.

Epic was my word for this year and Epic is what it has been.

These days I aim high and always do what feels right. I adore building the relationships of those I am close too. I make time for the people I care about even if it is just a text to show I am thinking of them. I listen when they talk and try to remember the small stuff because it is those small things, the different things that make us individuals.

I used to worry about what people thought of me, change myself even to suit them but the friends I have made in the past couple of years have shown me new ways, given me confidence to be who I am and supported me in being that person.

I am not sure if it comes from being a Mum that I happened to find this person as I wanted to be a good role model for them or if it is age but I feel strong, confident and loved and now realise that is all I ever needed.

We can all want for materialistic things but to be honest I actually feel pretty complete just as I am and that is a lovely feeling. We live life on a budget and we have to think where we spend our money but in my mind our family is as enriched as it has ever been, rolling through tough patches forms bonds and shows you what is important.. for me thats family and friends.

Here's to an amazing 2013 for everyone I know and everyone I don't what is my word for this year?..Hmm let me have a think and I will tell you later in the week :).. What is yours?

  1. I loved this post Tess. Really beautiful. What an amazing year you've had.
    My word for 2013 is confidence. I'm trying to find the confidence to believe in myself more. And have the confidence to change the things I'm not happy about. I'm going through that transitional stage at the moment between caring too much about what people think and becoming the confident person I'm supposed to be. I'm freeing myself of relationships that don't work for me. It's a work in progress. :) xx

    1. Oh Bron. Trust is brilliant. Trust is what everything is based on. Trust is the ONLY thing your can build from and Trust is my favourite thing. You don't find it with everyone but the ones you do.. well they are the keepers x
