Reflecting on 2017

In the least arrogant way I can possibly put this- 2017 has on the surface, been one of the best years of my entire life.

I did a lot of traveling, I spent a lot of time with family and friends, I saw a lot of great music live and I got engaged, moved out and got the kittens. I’ve been the happiest I’ve ever been and I’ve felt the most myself in a long time.

2017 was the year that I really realised the stuff that I loved in life, the career that I wanted to pursue and I committed to the guy who I wanted to spend the rest of the ride with.

However, I’ve also battled anxiety flare ups and lately seriously bad winter blues- which has meant that this year has been a total rollercoaster for me- full of major ups and several downs.

Mental health is a funny old bag really. You can be having the most perfect life but yet your brain sometimes decides that things aren’t quite alright. I’ve written a fair few blogs about this. (If you read this I promise I’m normally very cheery- but this is my little venting space!)

Although I feel like that’s the beauty of life is the variety- going into 2018, I’m hoping to focus more on working on my anxiety, and hopefully as soon as the winter dark nights pass- I’ll be feeling an awful lot more like myself!

I’m still excited to push myself out of my comfort zone- as I’ll be starting my January in Switzerland with work for Davos and my company. I want to get to Thailand next year and 2018 is also the year that we get married so that’s pretty damn exciting!

I’m so ready to start lots of other adventures and take you along for the ride.

Come at me 2018!
