Here’s my letter for my dear 2020. This year was the year I did not waste any time grabbing my bullet journal that I always start in the beginning of the year to write any New Years’ Resolutions. I used to do them as I believe they give you that mindset to commit to something or even stay motivated. But the reality is that, most of the times, I don’t think about what I wrote until later in the year when I need to come up with new ideas.
Instead, I thought about the expectations I have for this year that has all the potential to be the greatest year of my life. And if I was to chose a word to describe how or what I think this year is going to be, that word would be “Rediscover”. It was when this word hit me that I though: I need to write about it. I need to write about how I think this year is going to be the year of “rediscover” so I can read back at some point and find out if I was right or wrong.
So here I am, in my bath with a Garnier face mask on whilst baby is kicking away in my womb getting close to the third trimester to tell you all about my expectations for this new year, the start of a new decade.
Let’s start by talking about the big elephant in the room – I am pregnant, there is a baby on its’ way and getting pregnant was one of my resolutions last year (yay, I accomplished one! Read previous post for more). And that resolution is what is going to define this year to me. This baby is why I say that this is going to be the year of rediscover.
Everyone knows how a baby can change someones life. I truly believe that, this year, I am going to get to know a completely different side of me. Not only that, but I think that me and my husband will rediscover our relationship. Not that we’ve lost the sparkle or any of it, but I have already noticed so much change since the beginning of this pregnancy that I know that there is a lot more to come.
Here is what I hope for:
- To rediscover myself as a woman, a fearless one. A mum, a wife, a housewife, a nurse, a student, a sister and a daughter. A powerful woman that believes in herself and that fulfils these roles in the best possible way.
- To rediscover my husband as a loving dad, an even more thoughtful husband and the best best friend anyone could ask for. He already is all of this, even more since we found out about our little bean and I can’t wait to see what’s to come.
- To rediscover our relationship. To see our bond getting stronger, us loving each other more and more everyday and to still find time to appreciate one another.
And this is, in a nutshell, what I expect this year to be. A year full of love, learning curves, challenges but most of all, a year full of happiness and rediscover.
