In 2016 my husband died, 7 weeks later my brother-in-law (Ken's brother) died, in July my big dog Max died and in August my Mother-in-law died. So much sadness. And the grieving has been MASSIVE. So many tears. Almost every day. And way too much wine.... often!
So much time spent on my own as a very sad, very lonely and heartbroken woman (and often I didn't share those feelings even with those closest to me, those nights of absolute heartache, and sobbing myself to sleep).
AND ..... most of the time I only posted 'happy' stuff on FaceBook (I needed to do that for my own sanity as well) AND to remind me that I was getting out there trying to make a new life and adjust to being on my own without the love of my life.
Last night I said Goodbye to 2016 by writing pages and pages in my journal and I decided .....NO wine! I was in bed by 10pm. Quite Cathartic really.
I'm sharing all this because I am making a committment to myself to take much better care of myself in 2017.
In numerology I am a 7 (Ken was too!) and as I wrote last night I came up with (not intentionally - it just happened) 7 things to focus on throughout 2017, and in NO particular order... but I thought I'd share them :
1. Health & Weightloss
So here's to a healthy, happy 2017 not just for me but for all of you too!
Till next time
