I know it’s some kind of trendy to hate on everyone who utters the words ‘new year, new me’, but don’t you just love how with every start of a new year, we get to feel rejuvenated, revamped; kind of like we have a fresh canvas to work on? Isn’t that exciting? And more importantly, we made it guys! It’s the beginning of a new year, which means last year ended and we got through. Yay us!
I must say that 2016 was an especially challenging year for me. From moving to a new country and having to adjust to a whole new way of life, to moving back home 10 months later and starting afresh (having sold off and/or given everything away before I left last year), New jobs, New routines, other big and small changes here and there (physically, emotionally, spiritually, socially, you name it). And then the biggest of all; losing a parent to death just when I thought we’d made it out unscathed. But life is fleeting like that; a very painful reality.
Anyway, with all that happened in 2016, I can’t say I’ve ever been prouder of myself and where I am in my journey than I am right at this very moment. Last year saw me taking so many strides in the direction of my dreams and I couldn’t be more proud! I’m so grateful to everyone who has in someway or other helped me along in this journey.
As we start this new chapter of our lives, I do hope it’s one filled with great achievements and fulfillment of dreams and strength to try again when we do not succeed and most of all, peace and joy and happiness.
I must say I’m extremely excited about 2017 and all the possibilities it’s already presenting. How I can’t wait for it to really get started!
So in the spirit of celebration and making merry, I’m excited to announce that I will be giving away some of my favourites things later this week. Look out for that post.
Best wishes for the new year!
