I have such mixed feelings about 2020. Undoubtedly the hardest year of my life (and for the world) but equally the most wonderful year for me personally when I reflect. I’m choosing to focus and celebrate the good today. I would love to encourage anyone reading this to comment their highlights (big or small – we have to take pride in the smallest of victories this year) so we can focus on the positives together. I love hearing about other people’s achievements! I’m going to try and keep this short and just highlight the stand outs and not go into too much detail as I am aware that others reading this may not have had the best year.

It still feels so weird that we are in 2020! I don’t know about you, but it always takes me a while to get used to the new year date and am forever writing the wrong year down. Having said that, I am so glad that 2019 is over and the first month of 2020 has been very kind to me. As lots happened, I thought I would pop everything into a little life update post.

Each year I do usually participate in some resolutions or small changes that I would like to implement for myself that usually fizzle out in a few months. This year, I’ve decided to write about something a little bit different that I refer to as my new year ‘revelations’. Continue reading “NEW YEAR REVELATIONS”


Hello everyone and welcome to the first blog post of 2019! At this time of year, my feed is filled with posts about changes, resolutions and giving things up. I’m not really one for making ‘new year’s resolutions’ as such as if I want to change something in my life I tend not to wait around for the end of the year but I certainly do get the ‘new year, new me’ mantra for those that go with it.

With just over a day left of 2018 I’ve been taking some time to reflect on all the amazing things that I accomplished and the memories I have made. When I think about it, 2018 was a really big year for me personally. I feel like I really found myself as a person (cliche I know) and finally gained a bit of self confidence. I also made some of the most amazing friendships and overcame obstacles that at the time seemed like impossible task. Continue reading “A YEAR IN MY LIFE: 2018”
