Despite being a mother of two pre-school age boys, Frozen’s anthem “Let It Go” was imprinted on my brain for much of 2014. Birthday parties, dance concerts, kindy impromptu karaoke performances, you name it …… the song was everywhere!

And even though I know you’re over it, like I am, I think it’s a great theme to end the year.


Because other than looking backwards with gratitude and reflection, dwelling over regrets in the past serves no useful purpose. 

2014 may not have been the year you had planned in general, let alone with your eco-parenting.

Your new cloth nappies may be all washed and  neatly folded on the change table “waiting” for you to start using them. You might have had great intentions to cook more meals at home from scratch and reduce your consumption of processed foods, yet perhaps haven’t started yet. Perhaps you have a heap of organic seeds ready to be planted, but your garden still resembles a wasteland.

Whatever unfulfilled eco resolutions you have from 2014, I urge you to Let. Them. Go.

That’s right.

Let It Go.

Carrying green guilt for not achieving them serves you no purpose whatsoever and just gets in the way of you being the great mum you want to be.

So instead, have a go at looking at 2015 with a fresh set of eyes.

  • What eco resolutions would you like to set for yourself and your family?
  • What small changes can you make that will have a BIG impact on our environment?
  • What’s achievable and won’t put undue pressure on your relationships and health (especially mental health since so many mums of young children are doing it tough in this area already)?


Now, go for those goals and as for 2014……. Let It Go!

Go on. You’ve got this.  🙂
