I have been on a bit of a self discovery journey lately. It wasn't a New Year resolution. It started back in August I suppose. It hasn't been dramatic or crazy, it has been a slow build each month, each
week, each day. Learning to be kinder to myself, my family, my friends, others. Sure some days
aren't perfect and some days some Auckland driver will really piss me off but I'm learning to let it go, remember that sometimes "done" is better than striving for "perfect".
Our new house motto is 'appreciation, not expectation' and while some days this is easier to
mentally enforce than others, it does make you think more, consider more, worry less and live more.
Why has this come about? Who knows and really, who cares? I've gotten here and I like it.
I know that I'm happier, feel lighter, my husband and kids are happier. They are very important
things for me. It feels good, so I'm thinking of staying here for a while.
