Lifestyle | 2016 in Reflection

Hey there,

Happy New Year!

This post has taken me a lot longer to write than I thought. It appears I could basically write a book on my life in 2016 based on what went on and all the emotion. I just keep typing and going of on rants, and coming back to reality just to cut out some of the content, thinking no one wants to read this, (insert laughing face). I suppose sometimes this reflection stuff is kinda like a therapy.... so I've tried to keep it more to the point, and less of an essay.

2016 has been such a strange year for me! I could quite easily sit here and say it's been shit in a number of ways, both with health, emotion and losing my Granny. But I like to focus on the positives (plus I'm not very good at talking about my feelings), and yes moments in this year have been incredibly testing, and parts have been hugely challenging, but at the same time, I have taking a lot from it all, and it's not all been bad!

I made the decision at the end of 2015 that I needed to focus on myself, and that's exactly what I've done. I decided to say yes to more things, (and no), I opened up to more people, I realised the value of family time, friendship and alone time. I travelled to the other side of the world. I visited beautiful places, and created so many amazing memories. I landed not just a new job, but the start of my career. And when I look at it like this, it's been a pretty great year!

So here's to 2017, a focus on health, wealth and happiness!

How would you sum up your 2016?

Lots of love,

P.S Photo was shot on one of my holidays from this year, from a beach in Croatia! Just seemed fitting with this post, and its beautiful!
