Un-deck the halls, de-tinsel the tree, and scoff the last of the turkey (or meat-free alternative) leftovers, as well as finishing the choccy selection box… Then what? It’s all over and we’re back to the reality of another year over, and what have we done?
Its good to take some time between the Christmas excesses and New Year extravagance to reflect on how the past year has shaped us, and how we have stood up to overcome the odds and face our demons. For myself personally, the year did not throw anything particularly untoward at me. Though I have stood by my OH while he’s waited to find out what the future at his company would hold for him. Thankfully, he kept his role, though many of his colleagues sadly lost their jobs. But when one chapter ends, a new one begins and throughout life we experience changes for the good and not- so-good, it’s how we deal with it that defines us.
I felt that despite the uncertainty behind his occupational status, for Mr Bunny and I, nothing much had changed this year. And in some ways I feel blessed but in other ways I feel disappointed. It seems like we have not really grown with the past year, but maybe just spread some more roots down, holding onto what we’ve always known without really reaching out for unknown territory. This kind of living is ok for a while, but eventually I get restless and need to roam to unchartered lands.
What I hope for in 2017 is that we can broaden our horizons and try new experiences. I’m not quite sure yet what they will entail. Perhaps some overseas travel, learning a language or a new skill. One area I would certainly like to broaden my horizons is in the bedroom…I would love to try pegging, and more role play. A fetish club is also on my would-love-to-try-at-least-once list. I don’t know quite what the year will hold for me in this domain, but I plan to ‘grab the bull by the horns’ so to speak and enjoy myself while I can!
