As another year comes to an end it’s time to reflect on the year that was 2021. Generally speaking, 2021 has been a good year for my family.
Another year comes to an end
As 2021 comes to an end it’s time to reflect on the year gone by. For many people, they’re still suffering the effects that 2020 drew upon them. Financially, physically and mentally. Hopefully, there is light at the end of the tunnel, with the vaccine program at the full pace we may actually be seeing progress towards a bit of ‘normality’.
For myself and my family, we’ve all been lucky in the sense that we haven’t caught COVID.
Compared to the previous two years, 2021, for my family, has been generally a good year. As with each year, we’ve continued to work together to keep the family bond intact and to build on relationships between us.
Individually my family have all achieved something to be proud of. Last year, I talked about evaluating decisions and being bold with decisions and that’s exactly what my family did.
Something to be proud of
Chloe is now working, and academically striving towards her end goal of reaching university. With offers already on the table, her future is looking promising.
After realising some errors in her ways Lilly re-evaluated her decisions and has made tremendous steps forward in achieving her academic targets.
Alfie is growing up to be a smart kid… a knowledge sponge. Again, striving to do better each day with anything he’s given, accepting the fact that ‘you can always try again.
Then we come to Mrs F. A selfless individual who works to care for children. This year, she took a bold decision and it paid off. After already receiving a promotion and promising future prospects, our decision to ‘switch roles’ to allow Mrs F to pursue her career is paying dividends.
With such hard work and great progress, and the world still in a constant state of change and daily monotony, it is, however, easy to become complacent. It’s important to remember those you love and to appreciate the efforts each member of your family are making.
It’s easy to be carried away with progress but sometimes it’s a good idea, to take a breath and look at how you can make your future progressions sustainable.
On the whole, 2021 had been reasonably good for us. We all progressed and developed in certain ways. With the exception of Chloe’s imminent move to university, we, yet again, have no plans for 2022.
I’m confident though that as a family, we will continue to support each other throughout 2022 and continue to strive to achieve.
I would like to thank and wish all of my readers, followers, friends and family for their support throughout 2021 and look forward to what the new year brings.
Natalie, the kids and I would like to wish you all a very happy and prosperous new year.
