Goodbye 2011. I’m happy to say goodbye. It’s been a long year.
Lots of good and a mix of crap.
Everyone knows I somehow landed myself on the biggest tv show for the year. It brought a whole lot of fun and a whole lot of angst. That’s a post for another day!
I’m still not sure what being on tv has done for me – I’m still trying to work it out.
Plus my health has been awful.
However, I am grateful for so many fun times. I got to meet some of the most amazing people. I also learnt a lot about people in general…
More things I’ve learnt:
♥ Absence does make the heart grow fonder. I appreciate my husband more than I ever did.
♥ The grass is never greener on the other side. Never ever wish to be someone else. Their life is not always what you think.
♥ My sister and I are a team. Always will be.
♥Confront all the negative things said about you and you’ll end up on top. Listen to the negatives, hear them and then disregard them. It feels good to grow extra skin and nothing anyone says about me worries me anymore.
♥ Nail polish is a necessity. Never ever have chipped nail polish though.
♥ Smile and say you’re ok if even if you’re not. This too shall pass.
However, mostly I’ve learnt a lot about myself. If nothing else, I am pleased to say I am happy in my own skin and I know what I want and where I want to be.
Where am I going in 2012?
I have no idea what is ahead for me in 2012. I’m still trying to work that out.
I do know that I am moving house AGAIN in about 3 weeks. I’m sad about that. I am hating the idea. I do want to build a new house in 2012, but I’ve been so unwell so I have no idea if that’ll happen just yet. If you’ve been following my blog for a long time you’ll know that I built a house in 2009 and sold it at the very end of 2010. The plan was to build another one in 2011, but the tv show put it on hold. So we’ve been ‘floating’ from house to house! And, unfortunately this house we have been ‘borrowing’ from Andrew’s sister (who lives in another house) has sold. I have no idea where we are moving to (I have 3 weeks to find something!) and for how long.
So, for The Chambo’s I am sure 2012 will be another journey. I am grateful for ‘my’ people. A good friend of mine lost her sister in a terrible car accident 3 days before Christmas. She is gutted. A tragedy always makes you wake up and smell the roses.
2012 for me, is going to be more about who cares. So who does care? No one, but yourself. I have spent 2011 wondering and thinking about too many things. I want to spend 2012 not thinking and wondering.
I will see my baby start big school and this is the first time in 10 years I will have 5 days a week to myself. Hmmm maybe I need a job! Ha!
Well, it looks like 2012 will be a year of no plans. I have no plans. I have no idea what I am doing about anything.
I can’t wait. Bring it on.
