2018 Reading Challenge

HELLO from the other side!

First of all can I say Happy 2018 to you all, yikes I know I am so late in wishing everyone (sorry), I truly hope you all have a wonderful 2018, may it be a better year than 2017. It seems to have flown by so quickly, I feel like it was just yesterday I was saying goodbye to 2016 and welcoming 2017. So much has changed in a year. As some of you may know, I found out I was pregnant in mid August and my life has drastically changed since then. I personally did not plan on becoming a mother for another couple of years but life has a way of changing your mind. To be honest, as I enter the final trimester I am still somewhat scared of the aspect of giving birth/having a child, since I have never been pregnant before I really have no idea what to expect which is both a bad and good 😓😌. Pregnancy has been difficult for me, not only is there a lot of changes to the body I had to get used to, I had to tolerate the mood changes, hormones, not being able to do certain things and just pregnancy symptoms in general. Although, I am a lot better than I was in the first trimester (Thank God for that), unfortunately the part of me that didn't want to do anything did not go away. I am still struggling with reading and blogging today which is why everything has suffered. I wish I could change that part of me but I have learned to deal with it and accept I can't force myself to do anything. However, I am still hopeful that I can change some things since I get maternity leave from work at the end of this month. Here is to a better 2018. 

Last year, I didn't do very well in the reading challenges I decided to participate. I am hoping I can do much better this year. Let's see how this goes! 😊
