This Year Was.......
This year was.... a year like any other with it's ups and downs. Even though it's ending on somewhat of a "down" for me, I don't want to write the whole thing off and say it was totally horrible.
I've had some pretty big personal breakthroughs in the last few months.
It's honestly been the hardest 3 months I've had in a long long time, but sometimes hittin a mental rock- bottom is a good thing. I still have a lot of work to do on myself but for the first time in a long time I do see a light at the end of the tunnel. I know I'll get through it and figure it all out eventually.
As a 43 year old women who has stayed home to raise my 2 sons for the last 20 years, take care of my husband who's had multiple neck and back surgeries, I never prepared myself for the time when my role of mommy and caretaker was no longer necessary.
This year was....the year that it hit me like a brick wall! "What do I want to be when I grow up?"
It's basically a women's mid-life crisis. I want change, I need change, I WILL change.
So, for me 2014 is going to be exciting. I've decided, it's going to be "The Year of Tina"
It won't be easy to put myself first and I know it will take some time to retrain my brain, but I am determined more then ever.
Good bye 2013........Hello 2014
