News Years Inspiration – My word

I joined this blog challenge over at Another Girly Blog and I nearly missed the deadline with all our holidaying and what not but here it is.

My inspiration for the year ahead.

My word. I actually wasn’t planning a word for this year but this one kind of found me on old years eve and so here I am – accepting things. When I told Julia she said to me “This means lots of biting your tongue” – indeed it does but it also doesn’t mean becoming a doormat . To me it means, accepting the things I can not change, making peace with them and learning to deal with them.


My second inspiration for the year is my family. I want to focus more this year on the 6 of us as a family – being together more, doing stuff together as a family and not simply getting through the day and racing through the weekends.

    LOVE this. Acceptance does also mean choosing your battles and setting certain boundaries. You’ll do great!

    ps…meant to tell you that I LOVE those curls of Kiara!I WOULD swim every single day if my hair did that.

    Accept is a great word, one I’m not very good at implementing 🙂

    Precious, precious photos. Good choice. We often fight before we come to acceptance. My wish for you is that you recognize the things that you can’t control from the beginning. Family is the most precious thing that was gifted to us…I hope that you will make memories that last forever with your family. xx

    I like that: have faith in yourself and in the direction you have chosen – it also reminds you that YOU have chosen that path and can alter it if you want. Great quote!

    Acceptance is not as easy as it seems. It takes a strong person to choose to accept! I can’t believe how big Jack is now and so grown looking in the picture
