Much has happened this year that has substantive effect on my life. The most important of all is the birth of my daughter – a change that has moved me into fatherhood. The impact is phenomenal – I have had to revise my schedules and commitments to charities and social bodies as my wife and I work to be good parents – and get the hang of nappies, sterlisers, and muslins. Plenty of muslin!
Health has been somewhat of an issue – mainly due to injury, lending a moniker of Mr Bump. Nevertheless each setback has taught me something new about myself. And reasserted the need for resilience. In fact, I’m each and every one of the Mr Men, all rolled into one!
2011 will be a year of exciting changes – some planned, and some unplanned. The most important thing we can all do, is be good in our hearts, strong in our will to help better the world, and inquisitive in our questioning when it comes to changing life for the better.
