I actually ‘umm’ed‘ and ‘ahhh’ed‘ over writing one of these posts this year, hence the lateness of the upload, sorry guys! I honestly want to wish you all a HAPPY NEW YEAR and hope that 2016 will be the best it can be for each and every one of you’s

I always get a weird feeling wash over me when it comes to writing these types of posts, a surreal feeling, like ‘Is this it? The year has gone already, what have I done?‘. If I was to be honest, whirlwind probably sums up most of it. As much as I would love to relive all the amazing things that happened in 2015, I’m not going to make this post, one of those long-winded ones where I go off on a ramble. You guys have been with me throughout it all, so instead, I’d like to talk about all the things I’ve learnt over the last 365 days.

I learnt that people are not always what they seem to be. They can lie, talk behind your back and use you in any way possible to get to where they want to be. 

I learnt to be confident and assertive, to talk from the heart and not to ignore difficult situations because in the long run, I will be the one suffering.

I learnt that family and friends mean the most to me and not to take anything or anyone for granted because regret sucks.

I learnt that I will never be able to please everyone and quite honestly, I don’t feel the need to either.

And lastly, I learnt to love with every part of me and to love fiercely because my heart is full of it and knows exactly how to do it.

So, here I am, on the first day of 2016, with still a lot to learn about everything, I vow to make this year the best it can be, I vow to work hard and succeed and I hope you’ll all be with me again throughout. Let’s leave the past, move on with the future and welcome new beginnings with arms wide open.

    Some good life lessons to stick by here. I think confidence is key (although easier said then done) and family definitely are everything! Happy new year hun, hope it brings you all you wish for!

    You've learned a lot of things and the one that I'm happy about is that you learned to be confident. I hope 2016 will even be a better year for you 🙂

    Happy New Year! 🙂
