Why I don’t believe in New Years resolutions, and think you shouldn’t either

It’s the done thing isn’t it, to make a resolution and why not? After all it’s just committing to the things you want to stick to for the upcoming year.

However it’s not exactly a secret that the majority of resolutions are not kept and though for most this is of no consequence for many people it actually has really negative  impact. Think about how you decide on your resolutions, you essentially pick the things you really want, like REALLYREALLY want, sometimes it might be more important than that, perhaps there is some health reason that you need to make changes.
so you have your resolutions and then what?  ell most people start so strong but unfortunately most people by week two have either failed or are failing. I know I am not alone at being very hard on myself if I fail at anything, so in failing not only am I no better off that before the resolution but also I am now kicking myself that I didn’t manage to stick to it.

So I think that making a resolution based on the time of the year is little more than a recipe for failure, however i do think that if there is something that you really want to do then JUST DO IT!! It shouldn’t matter if it is 1st of January, 15th March or the 30th of December if it is really worth doing DO IT!

And if you really need a resolution to live by for the rest of the year, make it to be kinder to yourself as if one is kinder to themselves you can achieve great things, as loving yourself is the greatest thing you can really do. Let not look for a new you for the new year but rather a new love for the old you instead.

Until then remember…

Starlets and Harlots

Anyone who knows me, knows I love a bit of vintage, the style, the class and just everything.  I love a good swing dress nothing makes me feel more womanly and pretty. When I’m all dressed up I could almost pass as a lady, however anyone who knows me also would know I love the English language. I particularly think that one should always use every word which you have at your disposal. Obviously it goes without saying that some words that are not used, these are those words which are used only to severely hurt others, though one would say that when we become fearful of a word we give it power, when a word without power is nothing but letters.

Whilst I dress like a starlet, mostly, some would say I have the mouth of a harlot, though I have a… well lets call it colourful use of the English language, I am also quite straight forward with the things I say. If I think you are being a bit of a twat, I am telling you ‘You’re being a twat’ I do think life is too short and far too stressful to suffer fools easily.

So whilst I am looking fabulous and insulting everyone I meet, not really, just the twits I encounter, I do love to craft. However just under a year ago I lost my confidence, three women, decided they had a problem with me because I deleted two of them from Facebook, I was actually deleting everyone from it, but got stuck after deleting two hundred as Facebook wouldn’t let me delete any more. So they said things to the third woman and suddenly I was a bully. Laughable really, as I tried to help anyone I could especially the third woman but well people believed it…
I removed all of those people from my Facebook and my life but it shook me. I began to feel as though there was something wrong with me as a person, especially when life has not been particularly kind over the years, I have had bullies in my life since childhood, my health has been bad, my children have had issues and it makes me feel so overwhelmed.

I don’t know how to get the confidence back, but I really want to try to get there.
It is just a shame that these women, who were old enough to know better, could do so much damage. I am sure each thought it would be okay, a little bit of vengeance for deleting off Facebook, though I will never know the thirds motivation, make me feel bad and that’s that. I wonder if they would have still done it if they had of known the damage they would really do…

But now I am trying to put that behind me, look like a starlet and as for my confidence… I shall just have to fake it till I make it…

Summer Holiday Shame…

I want to start pointing out I love my children so much, they mean the world to me and I wouldn’t change them for the world but…

I can’t wait for them to go back to school, I see these people saying how sad they are to see their children go back to school and I feel that twinge of guilt. I love spending time with my girls, they all have their quirks and they warm my heart but summer holidays are such a nightmare!

I start the week before hand looking forward to it, making plans, thinking this year I will be one of THOSE mums, the ones who seem to be able to keep their children happy and content for the whole six weeks. Alas I yet again by the end of week three counting the days before they can go back to school.

The guilt is severe and I wonder what I am doing wrong, Why am I looking forward to them being in school? Why do I feel like I am the only person who feels like this? Am I the only person who feels like this?

My girls are upstairs playing so sweetly yet I know within minutes it will descend to chaos, I will hear the cry of ‘MUMMY!!!!’ and onwards will follow the tales of war, a war which they declared on each other 5 weeks ago, an ongoing battle from which there has been many casualties, the worst of which was the damage to my sanity. I look forward to the time of being able to tidy my house and restore some order, to heal my headache which has been pounding for 5 weeks and just to rest….

I have felt so helpless these last few weeks and too ashamed to mention to my mummy friends just how much I am looking forward to them going back to school. Worried that I shall be judged and deemed a bad mum for wanting just some moments of sanity within my day…

Alas mummy shaming is all too common within the mummy community and we know that you don’t tell your weaknesses lest thee be judged by the court of perfect mummys…

But I just can’t be the only one who feels this way, can I?

Let me know below if you too feel the way I do…
