So much has happened this year, from getting engaged to getting pregnant to having a baby. My life has moved in a much different direction than I could have imagined when I first moved back to BC. It just goes to show, change can be a good thing. Since I have been back to BC, I have gone backwards and then much more forward. I was afraid I would feel stuck again but that didn’t happen because I got out of my comfort zone. I have tried different things, some have worked out and some haven’t but in the end, I learned more about myself and about acceptance.
I never wanted to get married but I got engaged. It’s not always about what we want, it’s about the relationship that would be affected by it. It didn’t change much but the relationship status yet it meant the world to my fiancé and he means the world to me so why not?
I also never wanted to be pregnant and give birth but that also happened this year. To clarify, I always knew I would keep the baby if I got pregnant but I was never trying.
Pregnancy was a breeze for me and I am so thankful for that. I have to say though, that I had my fiancé to thank for some of that. Without him letting me take it easy after work and basically doing all the household chores at one point, nothing would have been done.
Labour was not so kind to me but I persevered through it and even though I wanted to give up so many times, I didn’t and had a beautiful baby boy.
I had a baby this year and that has been the biggest change of all not just for me but for my family.
This year has been a year of change, acceptance, relationships, thanks, perseverance and family.
I have learned so much about myself this year. I have learned to accept change not just for myself but for my relationship with my significant other. I am so thankful to my family because without them, I don’t know how I would have persevered through the pregnancy and birth of my baby.
I hope everyone had as fabulous of a year as I did. If you didn’t, well next year is just around the corner.
