New Year.

2017
Happy new year! As promised, I will be doing the same thing I did last year. It took some time but I finally decided on my 2017 bucket list. It’s going to be a tough one this year however I feel I can really achieve it. Last year I learnt to hold myself to my work and practice integrity. This is really important to me so I tend to keep true to myself. Pretty crazy how much my 2016/2017 bucket list has changed but it just means I’m growing. I’m currently working on a few blogs as we speak so hopefully I will have more posted this week! Missed you guys! Talk soon.

2016
What can I say. This year started as a cloudy passage. I didn’t know where I was going, what to expect or what to hope for. I decided I needed to make a bucket list, a goal as to what would be important to me over the next 12 months. Which I did and for the most part successfully checked all the important things off. In the last 12 months alone I’ve gone through heartbreak, selling my own home, quitting my job and moving across the country. I took a leap of faith into the unknown that I could ever forget. My life changed for the better. I’ve never felt happier, looked better or been so confident that life is going to be great. I met some really great people in 2016, I also lost some people who I never thought I would. I began to really find myself. Every day is a process into who I am becoming and whom I want to be. One of my very many goals for 2017 is to not loose sight of who I am, love me for me & accept the things I cannot change. Much like 2016 I’ll be posting my 2017 bucket list in the next week to come. For now I’m just going to sit back and ride on the abyss of the new year. 2016, you were good to me. This year I don’t want a “new year, new me” I want to stay me, but better, improved, more intelligent. I cannot wait to see what 2017 has in store. Happy New Years!
