The definition of a resolution is “a firm decision to do or not do something”. For many of us (me especially included in this) it’s super easy to reel off a million changes we want to make after each Hootenanny, only to get overwhelmed come mid-January and break-down in a chocolate and domino’s fuelled binge. This year I’m feeling a little different, as becoming a parent tends to do. I’m feeling more in control, that I am the “the master of my fate” and “the captain of my soul” (if you want to get overly poetic about it). I’ve also gained an appreciation that most of the things that would have caused me angst previously are actually pretty trivial, and while things happen that we cannot change, the way we handle them is totally within our control. Little Mister already seems to have the resolution of trying to scale every possible surface and give his Mummy a heart attack…
