When I look back on the past 18 months, I see that it was a transitional time. I had a tough 2017 and I was so grateful when it came to a close. Moving into 2018 I had a lot of expectations about what I wanted to achieve, but as the year went on, I realised it was going to be less about me and more about the support role I would play within my family team.
It’s taken a lot of reflection for me to be able to say, “I’m happy with 2018, and it was a really great foundational period.” I was able to give myself space to come to that realisation, and I want to take those learnings forward and be able to live them every day. That’s why, instead of making a new year’s resolution this year, I decided to make ‘perspective’ my ‘guiding word’ for 2019. Ultimately, I know that if I can keep working to put things in perspective, it will increase my wellbeing and overall contentment with life.
