Waving goodbye to an unforgettable year

I am sending away an incredible year during which a beautiful and precious boy was born into our life and who showed me what true meaning and purpose are. I have been gifted with the opportunity to watch him grow and share his milestones, experiencing the strongest emotions of love and pride. His first smile, his first tooth, his first word and much more.

For the past 12 months I got to know the sweet pain of motherhood in more ways that I have ever imagined. I will never forget the life changing experience of birth and the day I fully embraced my womanhood and became a mother. Probably the memories of pain will fade, leaving me only with the magical picture of seeing Alexander's face for the first time and touching his velvety soft cheek. The bags under my eyes will signify the never-ending sleepless nights and when I am seeing my body in the mirror I can't help but smile and remember the hours of breastfeeding. 

I am sending away the highs and lows, laughs and tears, the happiest and most terrifying moments. because one of the first lessons motherhood taught me was that with the biggest gifts, also comes the biggest responsibilities. With all the excitement, happiness and joy, comes the terrifying experience which shows how fragile life is and how much more appreciative and caring we should be. 

I am sending away another year which tested my strength and resistance to obstacles and challenges. And even though I might have not always dealt the best way, I know I have made it through thick and thin, so today I can be writing these lines and anticipating the New Year.

I don't think I have ever sat to write a New Year's resolutions, just because dreams and wishes shouldn't be once a year thing. Still, it's good to take a step back and spend some time on reminiscing on what we have been through, where we are and where do we want to be in the future,

The future is always covered in mist, but for the first time I feel like I have a clear idea of how I visualize it. Dreams and wishes seem more clear to me and have extra worth and value. It is not only my dreams to fulfill, and my happiness to pursue, but also the dreams and happiness of my little family.  

Before saying hello to the New Year though, I just want to say a quick goodbye to the year I got to hold my baby boy, the year I moved to a completely new town (better say part of the country) and met so many new people. I started my online diary, a.k,a blog and re-found a forgotten passion for sport, thanks to which I finally lost my post-baby weight for only 3 months! 

But none of this was going to be possible without fighting the inner battles. There have always been two major feelings constantly clashing inside of me, whether I should stay and do what I think is ''right'' or whether I should go with the unknow. My gut feeling has never lied to me and going after what makes me happy has always been the right choice. I hope I will follow my feelings in future and let them lead me far and beyond. I wish to all of you to follow your dreams and passions, because everything is possible, if we really wish for it with all our heart and soul!

Looking forward to a year full of more beauty and fulfilled dreams,

Wish you the best 2015!
